    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 Smile

    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)
