Product Testimonial: Manfrotto and Gitzo maintain extremely high standards of mechanical engineering, which for a professional are very important – and often overlooked by other manufacturers more concerned with the digital component.

Very little, and almost never on-camera flash. I prefer natural and found lighting. When necessary, however, a Dedolight as below, and occasionally, Elinchrom flash with Chimera softboxes, Lowell Totalites and 300W fresnel.
