you wont go for wrong with portaflash from jessops.
Quote: and budget of up to 250 pounds
Portaflash are ok, but very limiting.
If you can strech to a budget of say £300, your options will open up.
Look at the steller or venus 150 twin head kits bellow.
I waited months for a replacement bulb when I had my portaflash. Interfit are a good start, but the continuous lighting gets quite hot. Elinchrom (e.g. style FX400s) are excellent for flash lighting, but the price is quite high.
Nick I believe Daz is talking about the portaflash flash heads. Still got one I`ve had since the eighties, never gets used much these days.
As for continuous lighting they do get hot, lovely in combination with a beauty dish though
What I like with the interfit is the price with standared S fitting.
A vote for the interfit stellars here, the S fitting makes accesories a little chaper and the bodies are fan cooled.
Both headshots in my port were shot with these lights (and a 90cm 3rd party softbox)
