Falcon Eyes has a wide and deep range of studio flash units. There are studio flashes aimed at amateur users, up to high-end studioflashses for the professional user. Almost every flash is available separately as well as part of a studio kit. These kits contain at least two flases, two soft boxes and two light stands, along with the needed cables and accessories.
These flash kits are particularly interesting since they enable you to do most portrait, glamour, fashion and product shooting right out of the box. For more advanced setups, you can expand them easily with addition flashes, and use these for a hairlight, background lighting and so on.
Below is a short overview of the studio flash series in the Falcon Eyes product programme.
