PLEASE NOTE: This video is not full a representation of what is included in this listing as some items are used for demonstration purposes only. Please see the “Specifications” tab for information on what this listing includes.

The PIXAPRO STORM 400 is a High-Speed Studio Flash that uses Insulated-Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) technology to achieve extremely short flash durations, as well as ultra-fast recycle times, which allows you to capture motion such as dancing, jumping and even water splashes with ease.

The IGBT Technology used in the STORM 400, allows it to behave in a similar manor to most speedlites, where the flash durations become progressively shorter and shorter, as the flash power is decreased. The PIXAPRO® STORM 400 can achieve flash durations in excess of 1/5000 second. The IGBT technology also allows for super-fast recycling times. At full, power, the recycle times are similar to that of a regular flash head of its type at 1.2 seconds. As you start to reduce the power however, the recycle-times become faster and faster, with recycle times as fast as 0.05 seconds, which is fast enough to keep up with the Multi-Bust mode on the vast majority of DSLR cameras currently on the market. This feature allows you to capture a series of images in quick succession, giving you a higher chance of capturing the perfect shot. Great capturing subjects in motion, such as Dancers, Athletes and Martial Artists etc.

The PIXAPRO® STORM 400 features a built-in wireless control port, which allows it to be used in conjunction with the optional PIXAPRO® 16 Channel AC Trigger set. This allows you to control your flash heads remotely, removing the need to go up and individually adjust each and every light in your set up, saving you precious time. It also features an intelligent slave cell that can be set to ignore a Pre-Flash allowing it to be used in conjunction with your TTL flashes with no problems, opening up a whole new world of lighting possibilities.

The PIXAPRO STORM 400 uses an S-Type accessory mount, making it compatible with a wide range of accessories and modifiers. This compact and lightweight flash is perfect for people who shoot weddings, portraits, fashion, and for advertising. It is especially good for shooting children.

The PIXAPRO® STORM 400 Twin head kit comes with a 16 Channel Wireless Trigger set, which allows you to control your flash heads remotely, removing the need to go up and individually adjust each and every light in your set up saving you precious time. It also features an intelligent slave cell that can be set to ignore a Pre-Flash allowing it to be used in conjunction with your TTL flashes with no problems, opening up a whole new world of lighting possibilities.

Questions & Answers

Answer:

The flash power is stored in capacitors inside the flash head and are not produced by the flash tube itself, so using a using a flash tube with a lower wattage capacity could result in blowing the flash tube blowing and cause damage to your flash head.

If you would like to reduce the power of your flash even further, there are a few things that you can do:

  • You could move your lights further back from your subject (doubling the distance of your light will reduce your light’s exposure by approximately two stops).
  • You can add extra diffusion to your modifier (e.g. diffusion material from a softbox, or the diffuser inside a 5in1 reflector etc.).
  • You can use Neutral-Density (or ND) gel filter on your modifier which you can purchase from most theatre supply stockists. (Please note: do not place ND Gel too close to the modelling bulb as it could prove to be a fire hazzard).
  • You could use an ND filter on your camera’s lens to reduce the amount of light entering your lens.

Any of the above techniques, by themselves or in combination will enable you to further reduce the light output from your lights.

Answer:

So long as all of your lights are set to the same channel, they should all fire regardless of what group they are set to. The groups are basically just for controlling the individual lights. If you need to have it so that only certain flashes fire, all you need to do is set the lights that you don’t need to the “OFF” setting from the trigger (represented by “OF” on the LCD display on the trigger, and on the Digital Display on the flash head).

For Example, if you set your key light to group 1, your side lights are set to group 2 and your hair light is set to group 3, then you decide that you don’t want your hair light to fire on this shot, all you need to do is simply turn the dial on your trigger to group three, and set that light to off (which is shown on the digital display on your trigger and light as “OF”), and then it won’t fire… Similarly if you didn’t want your key light to fire, then you’d just turn the dial to group 1 and set the key light to off, then your key light won’t fire anymore and so on and so forth.
