Westcott 2001 43-Inch Optical White Satin Collapsi&hellip by Westcott

I use these predominantly with my Nikon SB speedlites off-camera, but also with Bowens GM500 heads. What I particularly like about them is that they're a good size and that they produce a soft diffused light which is quite flattering. It's perfect for portraits and getting the brolly in close to the subject. They're also big enough to use for full length images at a pinch. They're lightweight and pack up very small, (the shaft telescopes), so that they are not to heavy to transport. I have a couple of these and would happily recommend them as part of an easily portable strobist lighting system.
Lexar 16GB 400X Professional UDMA Compact Flash Me&hellip by Lexar
Well I'm not sure there's a great deal to say about this memory card. It's reasonably priced, at least at Amazon. It's quick, so that it doesn't delay the buffer on my DSLR even when shooting raw images which can be up to 14Mb a time and providing it doesn't let me down, it'll be all I need for the time being. No doubt newer, faster versions will appear, but for the time being at least I restrict myself to 16Gb cards in case one of them fails and that way I don't lose all the data that a 32Gb or 64Gb card might entail.

The lens cleaning pen arrived quickly and on time. The construction is mainly plastic but seems fairly well made. It's not an expensive item so no complaints there. The pen has two functions: the first is the brush, which is accessed by pushing the button forwards. The brush does a good job of dislodging specks of dust and a quick puff of air will remove any that have not been removed directly by the brush. On the other end of the pen is the lens cleaner; it has a small felt like tip about 13mm in diameter which is ideal for removing finger marks and the like. All in all, for the price, it's a good product that does what it's supposed to. My only gripe and the reason for only four… Read more
