Off Camera Flash Options

Recommended Posts


HI all. I'm shooting mostly Fuji These, days. But I still have some of my old Canon gear, including my Canon 430EX.

I have a family (CUZ) wedding to shoot in May, and while I own over 70 lenses, (all non fuji, I shoot manually) I normally don't shoot much flash. I'm thinking a flash setup would be a good investment, as i'm doing more portrait shots and the kids are going to be doing more events as they get older.

I've been considering the following:

For Stands, reflectors, etc.

Impact Multiboom Light Stand and Reflector Holder - 13' (4m) - I would like 2x, if have budget. Up for up for suggestions on a cheaper option?

Impact Umbrella Bracket with Adjustable Shoe. - up for suggestions on a cheaper option?

Spinlight 360 EXTREME Modular System for a defuser. - Looks ok, up for optiosn, prefer something sligher cheaper.

I have a Neewer Photographic Lighting Reflector Disc With Bag - Translucent, Silver, Gold, White, and Black - 43-inch / 110cm.

For Flashes

Nissin Di700A Flash Kit with Air 1 Commander for Fujifilm Cameras 
a Cactus V6ii, and a lower cost non name brand flash. ( looking for options )

Another question on the Cactus V6ii: does it allow you to fire both a canon and non canon flash at once in the same group? aka I could perhaps re use my 430EX as a flash in group a, with a non name brand flash? I assume I need a receiver for each flash. Other options?

My goal is to keep this around $400-500.
