Bob Harrington gave a speedlight presentation at B&H Photo’s Event Space on using one speedlight for multiple looks with a limited kit of modifiers.

Here’s his gear list:

Sony A99 Bundle w/ Free Flash and Battery Grip Back in Stock

Sony A99 Bundle

The last time I posted this deal, Amazon sold out very quickly with no indication of when (or if) stock would return. Now, both Amazon and B&H have the deal in stock.

The bundle deal includes the A99 full frame body, along with the VG-C99AM battery grip ($380 retail) and the $550 HVL-F60M speedlight flash for free.

That’s $930 of free gear with the purchase of the Sony A99 body. Check it out here on Amazon and here at B&H Photo.
