The GIO1 Flashgun Softbox Travel Backpack Twin Kit is a perfectly compact and portable lighting setup, that is suitable for a range of different photography fields. The PIXAPRO® GIO1 TTL (Godox's V1) is a powerful compact portable TTL-compatible Speedlight flashgun which features a round flash head instead of the traditional rectangular shape and is powered by a high capacity 2600mAh li-ion rechargeable battery. Unlike traditional speedlites that use AA batteries, the GIO1 uses a lithium-ion battery which will give you an impressive 480 full-powered shots per charge. With an ultra-fast recycling time of up to 1.5 seconds and virtually no slowdown as the battery power diminishes to keep you going throughout your shoot. With a built-in receiver and a variety of different modes from HSS to the multi burst, it is perfect for people who shoot weddings, portraits, events, fashion, sports, fitness & advertising.
Power: At 76Ws of power controllable from 1/256th power which means you can go as low as 0.3W for many possibilities. This means shooting small or large subjects is easy, giving flexibility with your lighting.
Flash Duration: It offers an impressive flash duration of up to 1/20000s giving a sharper image, and is great for capturing movement or motion. This is ideal for those shooting dancing, fitness, sports, events, water splashes and many more possibilities.
Recycle Times: At less than 1.5s, you will not need to worry about a long wait in between shots to ensure shots are not missed.
HSS: Overpower the sun with HSS to make shooting outdoors not an issue, reducing ambient light and getting the shot you want.
TTL: Get the correct exposure automatically to make worrying about settings, not an issue, ideal for those shooting in changing conditions like outdoors.
Battery Capacity: the 2600mAh rechargeable battery will give approximately 480 full-powered flashes, to get you through almost any shoots without having to constantly change the batteries.
Zoom: It has a zoom range of 28-120mm, this helps you to restrict acting as a spotlight or expand the focus of the beam of light for even widespread coverage, allowing you to add more creativity to your photography.
Accessory Mount: The flash has a magnetic modular mount, which means you can quickly and easily alternate between different modifiers with little to no fuss, the fastest way to modify your light.
The ONE System: you can mix and match any PIXAPRO range flash. The universal flash is compatible with popular camera brands from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Fuji, and Pentax with full control and even high-end cameras from Hasselblad, Leica and PhaseOne with basic control.
Quick Set-Up Mechanism: The softboxes feature a diameter of 70cm and have a quick release folding mechanism to easy and simple assembly.
Unique Lighting: The softbox is a sturdy, yet lightweight softbox with two layers of diffusion which enables it to produce soft even lighting. Due to its unique dodecagonal 8-sided shape, it will produce pleasing near-circular catch lights in the eyes of your subjects.
Speedlite Bracket: The softbox also features a fixed Speedlite clamp fitting, which will enable you to use practically any Speedlight flash with this softbox.
Max & Min Height: With a minimum height of just 49.5cm and a maximum of 190cm, this heavy-duty stand will be suitable for almost any situation.
Portable: the foldable compact design means it can be set up and put away with ease, making it an ideal portable stand.
Footprint Diameter: the wide footprint diameter of 95cm will give stability when mounting your equipment.
5 Surfaces in 1 Reflector: The 5in1 Reflector enables you to bounce the light from your main light source to fill in any unwanted shadows. It features 2x interchangeable surfaces all of which produce different effects:
BLACK - Absorbs light and prevents uncontrolled reflections from falling onto your subject. Perfect for when you want to increase contrast when shooting dramatic black and white portraits.
WAVY/SOFT GOLD - wavy golden coating for fine, warm light characteristic with a light colour like the sun. It provides less gold effect than a pure gold reflector.
SILVER - Increases contrast and highlights. Silver is great for accentuating detail and gives off the brightest reflection.
TRANSLUCENT - Can be used either as a reflector to bounce light back at your subject or can be used as a diffuser to soften the effects of harsh light. Ideal for when you are shooting out in the midday sun.
WHITE - Produces soft, more natural diffused light. Ideal for when you need to keep the colour temperature of the reflected light consistent with that of your ambient/main light.
Removable Padded Dividers: provide extra protection to your gear and are easily reconfigurable to your Requirements.
Pockets: large Front Pocket which can be used to carry a laptop as well as side pockets for Umbrellas and stands and an internal pocket to store small accessories such as memory cards or batteries and a spacious main compartment that can hold 2 Studio Flashes plus accessories.
Padded shoulder Straps: providing extra comfort, along with chest and waist straps to evenly distribute the weight around your body.
