Westcott Ice Light

Johnsons Photopia

If we're looking for a 'top five' products from its brands however, then the range of lighting accessories from Wescott (www.fjwestcott.com) is one of those worth singling out, in particular the 26-inch Rapid 'Octa' Box and Deflector Plate which retail for a VAT inclusive £180 and £23 respectively. This light modifier provides a durable framework with heavy-duty reflective silver to provide soft and evenly reflective light and fits most industry standard speedlites (Sony being the exception). These products are joined by the Ice Light, which at £399 is a portable handheld daylight light source already being discovered and deployed as a must-have by many social photographers, and as advertised by Jerry Ghionis.

Enlight Photo (www.enlightphotopro.com) has a couple of lighting offerings too in the Orbis Ringflash at £179.99, promising easy, shadowless lighting with the ability to fit to your detachable SLR flash and lift it up in front of your camera, and Frio V2 Coldshoe - described as 'the world's best coldshoe' at £9.99 - which connects your hotshoe flash quickly to a tripod, light stand or grip.

To get your lighting correct meanwhile there is the Sekonic L-478DR LiteMaster pro meter (www.sekonic.com), which retails for £399.99 and claims to be the world's first touch screen operated light meter for use by both stills shooters and videographers.
