For a while now I have been getting into off camera flash photography or Strobist as it is known. You could use flashguns which is really what Strobist is about or you could go for something with more power. Every system has its drawbacks. A flashgun based system will be lighter to carry and will have no cables to worry about, but will lack the power of the Lencarta system and therefore some versatility.
It has 600Ws of power and adjusts across four stops of light. If you run two heads it splits the power 50/50.
There is also a ringflash available if you need one.
The heads are robustly made of metal and are very solidly made and should stand the test of time on the road. Bowens S-fit compatible as are all Lencarta products. The head has the umbrella mount incorporated and they are fitted with protective caps.
The powerpack has ready, OK and battery level indicator lights along with two sockets for the lights, a sync socket for the radio receiver and a rotating power output level knob. A carry handle and loops for a shoulder strap are also fitted.
So far I only have a couple of self portraits and fun shots with it.. This is with one head to the left of the camera.
I also have the 100CM white reflective umbrella, always handy to have one of these.. A metal catch arrangement and overall construction is very good.
A 10 and a 20 degree honeycomb finish off the light modifyers for me at the moment, but will be adding a 120CM or 150CM Octabox as soon as I can..
Acting the snake catcher..
The location case is superbly made and holds two heads and the power pack with a zipped pocket inside the lid. The construction is hard wearing and the corners have an armour plating for more protection.
A lightstand bag has three pockets, but as only two heads can be used with the Safari, I can use the third pocket for the umbrellas or a softbox.
Two sturdy but lightweight stands support the heads and have a good range of adjustment which should cover most photographers needs.
The Lencarta Radio Triggers are nicely made and small enough to fit in a trouser pocket should the need arise.
If you want to take your photography on the move and need powerful lighting I can thoroughly recommend the Lencarta Safari.
