Power supply NOT included.
WHAT'S IN THE BOX
First off I would like to say that the light is very powerful, well built and compact. When used as a constant light, it’s definitely a bargain when factoring in the power and size. But there are many things that need to change on the unit. I almost returned it if it wasn’t for the small form factor.
I am a wedding photographer and I bought this for hybrid purposes. Godox is my main flash brand. It WILL NOT blend with the color of standard flash units. The stellapro s gives off a greenish/yellow color cast when using this in flash mode, however not in constant mode. I take thousands of photos so I am not about to fix all of my photos for the sake of using this as a flash.
The mount attached to the unit is very cheap plastic, comparable to what you would use in a cheap 3D printer.
The mounts are proprietary forcing you to buy adapters that are also plastic, flimsy and overpriced. That was a huge mistake.
Again, if it wasn’t for its power and size, I would immediately return this. I almost want to give this 2 stars. I am going to make an in-depth video review of this unit.
I use these lights to light reporters I work with in TV News and often receive compliments on how nice my lighting looks. I absolutely love these lights in my kit!
The reflex lights are probably one of the best investments I have made for video. Incredible lights! Yeah, they are pricey but you get what you pay for. Every time I use them I am blown away by how much light I get out of such a small compact piece of equipment. With the spot lenses, I feel like I can set up a mile away and still light my subject. It’s incredible! They did it right with these ones.
I picked one of these up at The Portrait Masters conference 2022 after seeing it used in a few shooting bays. I've used it at every photoshoot since. I have a few different strobes and modifiers of different shapes, sizes, wattage, etc. I used to travel with a speedlight but I've been traveling with this since I've bought it. Super compact and fits in my bag easily. One charge is good for 15,000 flashes. High speed sync. Works with my Godox trigger. What more could I ask for? I walk around with it and use a white umbrella as a modifier. Super light and easy to work with. Since buying it I've used it as a fill light (especially in sunlight to reduce hard shadows), I've used it as a rim light, and even as a main light. I like to put a gel on mine to mimic the warmth of sunlight. Definitely recommend.
I purchased my 1st Stella Flex Pro S in June, after seeing StellaPro Ambassador, Kesha Lambert use it in her Portraits in Motion class at the Unique Photo Expo. Once I heard it worked with the Profoto connect Pro flash trigger, and saw its versatility (to shoot on the go at night, and indoors), I thought it would be a great addition to my lighting system.
At the time of purchase, there were no videos online on Youtube or Vimeo on how to use Profoto Connect Pro. Therefore, I had numerous questions about the interface, settings, battery packs, adaptors, and modifiers. Light and Motion's customer service and support team were terrific. I was fortunate to work with Marketing Manager, Anne and she provided support via phone, email, and even video conference.
There were many nuances because the system is so new, but Anne detailed and made the transition easier. After her assistance I now have (2) Stella Flex Pro S lights, (2) Bowens Light Stand adapters - Improved!, (2) 100 Watt USB-C AC Power Supply (EHO), and (2) 3m USB-C Cables.
I am looking forward to what products, firmware, and overall updates Stella Pro have to offer in the upcoming months and years.
