Portable flash for outdoor shooting
The Quadralite Reporter is a well-crafted flash system that comes with custom accessories to help you achieve captivating effects in your photos. It's a versatile solution that seamlessly works with various camera brands, making it suitable for all kinds of sessions – whether you're into portraits, sports, weddings, fashion, or product photography. But what really shines is its usefulness for outdoor sessions. Thanks to its built-in rechargeable battery, it's incredibly portable and can be taken anywhere you go. These flash units also perform excellently in studio settings, serving as a great fill or back light. They're equipped with radio receivers for remote triggering, which pairs smoothly with the Quadralite Navigator X system. To get started, all you need is a compatible transmitter.
Quadralite Reporter 200 flash's features
The Reporter series flashes offer a compact design that delivers more power compared to standard hot shoe flashes, all while maintaining a similar size. Both the basic model and its advanced PRO version are equipped with an automatic flash (TTL) function, providing a convenient solution for shooting in rapidly changing conditions. This feature is especially helpful for novice photographers who want to dive into using flash without the complexities of the traditional trial-and-error approach. These flashes also include the widely utilized HSS mode, which allows flash synchronization with shutter speeds faster than the standard X-Sync, going as short as 1/8000 sec. This feature proves indispensable for outdoor photography, allowing you to achieve captivating depth of field effects by reducing exposure time while widening the aperture simultaneously.
Quadralite Reporter replaceable flash heads
The Quadralite Reporter 200 and Reporter 200 PRO flashes come equipped with two types of heads, which can be swapped quickly and conveniently even while working:
- Rectangular – a standard head known from speedlites. Equipped with a Fresnel lens, it provides strong light that is distributed horizontally across the frame.
- Bare bulb – this head is most effective when used with softboxes. Its light distributes evenly within the modifier, allowing for alluring results in your pictures.
In addition to these, there are also additional head types available. The round-shaped head will provide much more even illumination, even without the need for light-modifying accessories. This type of head is also equipped with a magnetic mounting system, allowing you to install dedicated accessories with a single hand movement. Moreover, you can broaden the application of the Reporter 200 with an LED head which provides a continuous light source with an exceptional color rendering index.
Another noteworthy accessory is the Quadralite Twin Head Holder, which lets you use two Reporter 200 lights at once, creating a single, powerful, 400Ws light source. The holder also includes a widely-used Bowens mount, enabling you to connect a myriad of studio light modifiers like softboxes, beauty dishes, bowl reflectors, snoots, and more.
