Westcott Strobelite Holiday Gear Set

Westcott has yet another solid holiday promotion with its 3-strobe set.  For just a smidgen under $300, you get quite a big kit:

  • (3) 300Ws Strobelites
  • (2) 45″ Umbrellas
  • (1) Barn Door Set w/ 4 Gels
  • (1) 60-degree Honeycomb Grid

Heck, a pretty basic 200Ws strobe from Westcott will set you back over $200.  And they’re selling three 300Ws strobes for $300?  That’s what I call a deal.

You can find the Strobelite Holiday Gear Set at B&H Photo, Amazon and Adorama.

Note that the B&H product page currently says a “150Ws” strobe in the description, but it has the correct model number to the Holiday Gear Set (653H).  I’m shooting them an email for clarification, but they’ve also got it price $20 less than Amazon and Adorama.

UPDATE:  I just confirmed with B&H that the description was incorrect on their site and they are updating it to show that it does include (3) 300Ws strobes.

 

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA102 Waterproof Dual Camera Review

The Sanyo VPC-CA102 Xacti Dual Camera is capable of producing decent quality HD video and has still capture capability grabbing 14MP images at the press of a button. What sets the model VPC-CA102 apart from the the other Xacti cameras and many from other manufacturers in the class is the waterproof, sport camera design . What’s great about being waterproof is not just the ability to submerge the camera in water, but to keep on shooting when the rain comes or those moments when your child learns to swim and that moment can be captured while your right there in the water too.
