Profoto B2 Portable Kit
On a daily basis I use two type of lighting kits - Strobe and LED. The B2 is small and light and fits all the great Profoto modifiers I love. It's powerful enough for a majority of my work and is easily transportable. While I do use other power packs when I require more punch, the B2 is simply unbeatable for a simple lighting kit. There's something reassuring when being able to shoot frame after frame with the same light output with equal exposure and color temperature in every shot. They're also very easy to use with knobs to change settings instead of push buttons.
I've been using Profoto for over 15 years now and they've never let me down. I'd love to tell you their service is great but I'm yet to use it they been that reliable.
One of the most exciting products to be released in recent years in the LED lighting sector - the Ice Light is an incredible piece of lighting kit. Looking like a light-saber out of star Wars, it's obvious it's not your average LED light like the ones you're probably used to.
Firstly, it's well built, unlike other LED products I've used. It's also very durable in use, as I discovered backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Being a strip light source, it's ability to direct, control and shape it's light is very easy in use and the quality of the light that comes from it is soft and pleasing.
