D5 product review by Dave Cross, Top Pro Photographer

“Today we used our D5 lighting kit to get some great portraits and we can also use the exact same kit to create video because it’s exactly the same setup for 2 purposes. It’s great affordable lighting for all your needs.”

Dave Cross, Top Pro Photographer

D5 product review by Joe Farace, Shutterbug

“I found the quality of the light from the D5 and softbox combo to be beautifully soft and neutral.”

Joe Farace, Shutterbug

D5 product review by Dave Cross, Top Pro Photographer

“One of the reasons that I like using constant lights is that it really is ‘what you see is what you get’. It allows me to position the lights and instantly see the results that I’m going to get when I take the shot because I don’t have to wait for a flash to go off.”

Dave Cross, Top Pro Photographer
