    Nobody would shoot with a UWA and have the subjects (needing flash illumination) covering the entire frame from left to right.
    The distortion would be damn gross...

    Usually if I shoot group photos with my UWA @12mm, the subjects only covering left 1/3 to right 1/3 line (effectively like 20+ mm), then with bounce card and stuff, easy to get even coverage.
    I'm still new in this area.. not sure if it does haf a great effect as flash photography is sth tt we need to understand lights..

    there's a CSer called Castwind who's selling a portable strobe (600W i think).
    But with the battery pack, I wouldn't really call it portable

    I'm quite interested in his 3 x 160W strobes selling for <$400.
    Price seems really good, considering that it includes just about everything needed (light stands, umbrella, softbox, etc).
    BUT... I don't have the space

    hahaha no problem.
    The way I use my SB600 to photograph small groups (eg. gf and I, or a small group of friends), I find that I'm using the 'zoom' function on the flash and setting it to around 35mm or sometimes even 50mm. It gives that kind of 'spotlight' effect which I like. Doesn't dilute the ambient light, which is probably a different colour.

    Dunno maybe can mount powerful LEDs? Most LEDs use rechargeable bats, but frankly dunno powerful enough or not....

    Edit: like this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/Pro-160-LED-Vide...item35ac96d69b

    Without power box, pretty lightweight and portable don't you think?

    you need to have continuous light source . . . not 'flash light' system, cos you won't want to have any reflection on your product.

    Ah thanks for the heads-up! I'm looking into LED setup... I do have a Video light though... about 300W halogen - everytime I turn it on... I pretty much melted... The brand is Unimat...

    Edit: have you any experience with LEDs?

    If you use halogen, then you can't really mix with LEDs coz of the colour difference.
    I do think LEDs (especially the latest-gen of super bright ones) should suffice. Just use a thin diffuser and you're pretty much good to go.

    i am not into LED lightings yet . . . this is normally for people to do video taking where they light up the place for them to shoot.

    Yeah, adviceable not to use the halogen if using LEDs, thanks! The latest LEDs are pretty cool... can even adjust the intensity of the lights!... My halogen can only do one step-down for brightness...300 then 150... plus you need to put it near a electric outlet...not very portable even at home...

    I notice more and more event photogs are carrying LEDs as well. They use their FX cams @ high ISOs, then they can blast away at high fps speed with the constant light source.

    Studio shoots, I thought they do use continuous lights as well?

    Btw, do you want the reality show that's going on recently - can't remember the name...something related to Photography?

    Really??!... Wow... more than one usage... But I know LEDs can be very bright (and hot maybe) if all shine at once... like the continuous Video lights...

    During the intro to studio session I attended, they used strobes. At that point in time, they said constant lighting still predominantly used in videography.
    To me, strobes allow you to have a more powerful light source (since it's only momentary), and doesn't feel so harsh to the subject. Imagine you have a super-bright light source shining on you, hard to avoid squinting or shielding your eyes.
