Dynalite has released a new portable wireless flash called the Baja B4. Packing a 400Ws flash, a replaceable lithium ion battery, a plug-in 2.4GHz receiver and a full-sized S-mount, the Dynalite Baja was designed after “years of working side-by-side with on-location shooters demanding a better portable flash solution”.
