This is a collection of Camera Flashes and Strobist Accessories available for sale from Outdoorphoto. The category includes a range of dedicated flash units for professional use as well as models perfect for occasional use. You will also find strobist accessories for using with off-camera flash, such as umbrellas, softboxes, grids and colour gels as well asflash brackets and lightstands. Using these accessories with off-camera flash is ideal for location shoots out in the field where no power is available.
In this category you will also find Flash Extenders - an accessory that focuses your flash's light and extends the range. Flash Extenders are perfect for use with wildlife and sports photography where flash is needed over larger distances.
The basic difference between consumer flash units and flashes for professional use is the power output capability, flash recycle time and the reliability of the unit. If you only need a flash for those once in a while night-time shots while on holiday or at a party, you could opt for a middle-of-the-range model. If you need a flash for doing wedding or professional portrait photography, sport photography or serious wildlife photography you would be better off going for the top-of-the-range model. It might seem like a lot of money to spend on a flash, but it would definitely be worth your money. If you already have a top-end flash and need some additional units to use as second or third light sources for extra effect or fill-in, you could look at middle-of-the-range as well. These would often be sufficient for that purpose.
