Review: Flashpoint II 620M Portrait Wedding Monolight Kit

AdoramaTV presents Flashpoint. This week Mark shows the Flashpoint 620M Wedding Portrait Monolight Kit. It’s a great studio lighting kit for beginners – and it costs less than $500!

Mark reviews the entire kit, and shows you what’s possible using the various included accessories as well as its strengths and weaknesses.

The Flashpoint M series allows you to choose AC and or DC powered operation. Flashpoint Monolights are self contained, they do not require being hooked-up to a central power pack. That means no more wires winding throughout the whole studio. They have variable flash power settings,a flash-ready indicator and a built-in slave.

If your requirements are something good for all-around purposes and able to grow with down the road, this kit seems to fit the bill perfectly. It also looks to be very useful for your on-location shoots. You can purchase the kit with the battery packs as well, which costs $230 more.

This kit includes: 2 – Flashpoint 620M Monolights, 2 -9.5′ Air-Cushioned Light Stands, 2 – 40″ Umbrellas, 1-Snoot, 2 – Flashtubes, 2 – Modeling Lamps, 1 – Carrying Case.

    I’ve alerted the ALC editor; seems that this video which was uploaded over 18 months ago and needs updating to reflect the current kit, SKU #FP320MPWK which now contains the following

    FLASHPOINT II 620M AC DC MONOLIGHT

    FLASHPOINT II SNOOT

    FLASHPOINT 9½ CUSHIONED BLACK STAND A.C.

    ADORAMA 40″ UMBRELLA WHITE W/BLACK COVER

    FLASHPOINT LIGHTING OUTFIT CASE (SP)

    The barn door is NOT included in the kit and has been replaced with a snoot instead of the barn door and gels, which actually gives you better value for money.

    The standard umbrellas in the kit have a black cover but if any customer wishes he can call in his order and tell the sales agent that he does not want to get this umbrella, and it can be substituted with a white umbrella – which will give more even lighting.
