This category contains a range of Monolight Studio Flashes available for sale from Outdoorphoto. A Monolight is a powerful artificial lighting source that contains all the electronics as well as the flash tube in one unit. These require a power outlet socket to be able to use them, but are often a less expensive option than battery powered studio lights.
If you are looking for Photographic Lighting Solution to be used in your studio only, then you could consider a Monolight Kit. Monolights are available in entry-level as well as professional quality models and brands. The differences between the top-end and the less expensive models are output power, flash recycle time, flash duration and durability - and this is probably the most important difference. With the higher flash recycle time of the professional units, the system will be ready for your next shot in a shorter time, so you will never miss that perfect expression on your model's face - often lasting only a very short time. Faster flash durations mean you will be able to freeze fast moving motion much better. If you are setting up your first home studio and plan to take commercial images of couples, families and children, you would be safe looking at the middle-of-the-range kits (unless your budget allows for something better). If you are only looking to test the waters or maybe try out studio photography as a hobby, an entry-level kit should do the trick. The basic difference is that entry-level units are often not fan-cooled and thus cannot work as hard as required in a commercial studio.
