New Product Review; Photoflex PX300 StarFire Flash

March 21, 2011

Photoflex has recently introduced an in expensive, powerful, and portable flash without the bells and whistles or cost of a TTL flash. The StarFire flash is comparable in power to a Canon 580EXII or a Nikon SB900, the StarFire is the perfect solution for photographers that want to use a flash with radio triggers like the new FlashFire.

With most radio trigger systems, a TTL flash needs to be operated manually. The StarFire flash provides photographers an inexpensive way to build a multi-light setup to compliment exsiting studio strobes or create an entire portable studio setup. The Star Fire features two optical slave modes, one that syncs with the first flash(like on a studio strobe) and one that syncs after a TTL pre-flash. This allows the StarFire to be used with a wireless TTL setup albeit manually as a “kicker light” or with studio strobes; in both cases, syncing with optical slaves.
