    Lighting Setup Questions

    Sony A300
    Sony 11-18
    Tamron 17-50

    What I want is 2 lights mounted on tripods that will fire wirelessly.
    I have never used lights before or I do not have any idea what I need or whats decent. Doesn't need to be real powerful mainly used in smaller setting and something no to exspsnesive so I can learn on. Any help?

    whats your budget ? wireless flash can range from a couple hundred dollars to well over a grand.

    If you use one of these be careful as when I was doing some painting I had the vacuum cleaner hose in front of the light and the hose melted !
    We measured the temperature of one at work and the lamp was about 700C.

    It has some benifits though as when I was working in the garage last winter I did not need a heater as I used the 500W light for illumination and heating.

    I used to use these when on site but they need to see the flash from the camera or where ever but they are cheap:


    Frank has mentioned Yongnuo and they do a lot of useful flash gagets at good prices but get mixed reviews. I am getting a YN-468 for christmas from the wife.

    I used the Mini Slave Flash aimed at the background. Then I used my umbrella with my FLV42 on it with the remotes.
