If you still were having doubts about starting with studio photography, don’t wait any longer. The most complete and powerful starterkit ever devised by Falcon Eyes has arrived!
This set features three flashes, light stands, a backdrop and many accessories – even a wireless flash trigger set.
The Falcon Eyes SG-100BK has the characteristic features of studio and camera flash guns. The SG-100 Strobe Flash gun can be used as a camera flash gun, but thanks to its compact size, also as a lightweight, portable studio flash.
The Strobe Flash is placed on a camera hotshoe and receives power from an external battery pack. This external battery pack comes with the set and is powered by two included NP-F960F Li-Ion batteries (Sony compatible). With the supplied stand you can place the flash on a table. The stand also has 1/4″ thread for placing it on a light stand or tripod.
Another interesting review of a Falcon Eyes product! A while back, photo enthusiast Bryan tested our 400 Ws ring flash with powerpack outdoors.
Falcon Eyes Ring Flash 4M
Bryan was pleasantly surprised by the sheer power of this ringflash. This makes the flash unit suitable for various uses, indoors as wel as outdoors.
Use of ring flashes
Ring flashes are most often used in situations where shadows are not desired. By throwing a ring of light around the object, shadows are reduced to a minimum. Because this ring flash has it’s own power source, you can also use it off-camera for more interesting uses such as studio photography or model photography. Continue reading
Dutch site Photofacts.nl reviewed the popular FGAK-7 strobist kit with very positive results!
The reviewer likes the diffusor ball, snoot, grid and beauty dish the most. You can read the review (in Dutch) here. For your convenience, a translated version in English can be found here.
Here’s an interesting review by the German website Nachbelichtet.com. They reviewed the Falcon Eyes SSK-3150F Studio Starterkit.
The SSK-3150F Studio Flash Kit is a succesful combination of useful studiotools at a friendly price. With three flash heads, two softboxes, the backdrop in black and white and the other accessories, it fulfills most photo studio needs. A nice side effect of the small stidio system with compact flashes is the easy transportation.
Those who need a flash kit for daily, professional use, in a more rough environment, will probably go for another product such as the Falcon Eyes TE-Series, or look at other brands, where you will probably end up in another price class.
This set is perfect as a first studio for hobby photographers, a mobile studio, a id-photo studio or those who sell products on eBay.

For perfect photos of smaller products, Falcon Eyes has designed this 40 x 50 cm size tabletop product table. Included are two 120-LED daylight lamps (120 x 180 x 10 mm), which are powered by batteries or the included AC Adapters.
The LED Lights emit a neutral light at a 5500K color temperature for perfectly lit photos of products up to about ø 35 cm in size.
When you work on location, a foldable background comes in handy with any portrait shoot. Falcon Eyes now has three double sided backgrounds boards available: white & black, grey & chroma blue and chroma blue & chroma green.
The latter two can also be used for chroma key purposes (removal of the visible background in software such as Photoshop).
With this nifty little accessory, you can use up to three camera flashes together.
This way, you can create a portable studio flash from any spare flash you may have lying around! It works very well in combination with a tilting bracket and a flash umbrella. Use it outdoors or on location when you don’t have any electricity available.
