Get 'Em While They're Cold - Elinchrom
I can see why he was happy - they are 500 w/s kits with two 500 heads, integral radio control, EL Skyport transmitter included, two softboxes in a fitted case, and cords and manuals for a good price.
Standard Elinchrom two-catch bayonet reflector fitting, so they match all the Elinchrom light shapers. Integrated fan cooling and monitoring. Very sturdy outer case and the kind of components that will literally shoot all day in professional situations without going down.
There are a small knot of boxed kits still available on the sales floor - if you want to start a small pro studio or a big enthusiast studio, these are a good thing to start with. We've got a variety of sand s to support them as well and if you really want to push the boat out, get a beauty dish at the same time.
Picture at the top of the post? Elinchrom shot that. The model is Jo Armstrong.
