The gear comes packed in a custom shoulder bag, packed with more possibilities than you will ever be able to fully exhaust. Kit includes:
• 1 x B2 250 AirTTL (Fast, powerful and easy to use battery pack. Compact and lightweight enough to be carried on your belt or shoulder.)
• 1 x B2 Head (Small and light enough to put on a stand, a monopod or even on a bracket on your camera.)
• 1 x Li-Ion Battery (This powerful and exchangeable battery provides 215-50,000 flashes in a single charge depending on flash output.)
• 1 x B2 Carrying Bag (A handy little bag that houses the B2 battery pack. Carry it on your belt, shoulder or hang it on a stand with the stand strap.)
• 1 x B2 Location Bag (High-quality, custom bag with adjustable compartments. Fits the entire kit plus more. Stands and umbrellas can be attached outside the bag with the clever strap system provided.
• 1 x Battery Charger 2.8 A (Recharges the Li-Ion Battery in one hour.)
To shoot with the B2 is to shoot with all options at hand. Put the head on a bracket on your camera, the pack on your belt and stay moving. Or put everything on a stand and go off-camera. Shoot with TTL. Or shoot in Hybrid Mode and switch from TTL to manual control with the settings intact. Use it as a subtle fill light. Or crank up the power and take full control of the ambient light.
