Interfit Photographic has announced a new ultra-affordable studio lighting kit aimed at novice photographers. The Interfit Ace 100Ws Flash Kit, priced at $89.99, includes a 100Ws flash head, a shoot-through umbrella and a stand.

“The ACE is designed to be the ideal light for the novice photographer seeking a quality studio light at an affordable price,” said Interfit. “With its carefully chosen combination of key functions and components, the ACE gives you just what you need to get started, without the extra features and specs that beginners don’t necessarily require.”

According to the company, the Ace 100 is for those who “don’t need 1000W/s, TTL or hypersonic flash durations”. With its bargain-basement price point, the system does not promise impressive performance or an array of fancy features, but is designed to help photographers “learn the basics of studio lighting before investing in a big kit”.

Specifications

  • 100Ws studio flash head
  • 3 second recycle time
  • 75W halogen modelling lamp
  • 4-stops of manual power adjustment
  • Optical slave cell
  • User-replaceable flash tube
  • 1.9m (6.2ft) light stand
  • 84cm (33in) white umbrella
  • Power cable and sync cable included

There are more advanced 100Ws flash systems out there, such as the Elinchrom D-Lite RX One, which has a proper accessory mount and built-in radio — but a much higher price point.

The Interfit Ace 100 Flash Kit (INT181) will be priced $89.99 (£69.99 in the UK) and become available later this month. Visit the Interfit web site for more information. The company will be exhibiting at this year’s Photokina trade show in Hall 4.1, stands J011 and K014.
