Flora Light ~ Review

There are seems to be an endless choice of lighting options available to the modern photographer, but the choice often boils down to either flash or continuous light sources. Personally I like and use both on a regular basis, it all depends upon what subject matter I’m shooting.

For portraits I’ll usually use flash, but continuous lighting is perfect when I need a shallow depth of field or I’m shooting products which don’t move. I also use continuous lights for video work.

So when Linco offered to send me a set of their new continuous lights I jumped at the chance and jolly good they are to. Six lights and a quick erect octabox makes the a great choice on paper.

There’s a couple of things you need to know…

First Linco are a USA supplier and whilst they may well ship outside of the US the lighting units and bulbs are 110v. You’ll also need to add import duty fee to price, which can be a bit hefty.
