The Honey Badger Part 1

strobe-integration-820strobe-integration-820 I recently got my hands on Interfit Photographic's newest product, The Honey Badger Strobe. List price an amazingly low $299. Not only that, included in the box with this 320w per second compact flash head, is a 24" pop-up soft-box, power cable, and sync cord. Seriously, what a deal.

This was also my first shoot with my new Canon 5D Mark IV. Check out my upcoming Photography Happy Hour video tutorials, where we use the Mark IV to shoot motion, and Intefit's LEDGO's for video lights.

My first shoot with the Honey Badger was a "Labor" of love. A Cake Smash Session for my nephew's first birthday that falls on, you guessed it, LABOR DAY!

Meet Silas-The-Destroyer, as his folks like to call him. Honestly he liked the balls more then the cake!

8Y2A01108Y2A0110 I set this up in my living room, complete with a BackdropOutlet background and flooring, cake, balls, and a balloon I found at the local grocery store.

IMG_3711IMG_3711 The specs:

  • 2- Interfit Honey Badger flash heads.
  • Interfit Foldable Octobox as Key-light, on Camera right
  • Interfit Foldable Beauty Dish, slightly lower to the ground, a couple of stops lower for fill, on Camera Left
  • I turned the modeling lamps all the way up, and this greatly helped focus on the little bugger as he moved and grooved all over the place.

(Mom & dad, plus my husband/assistant, 8Y2A00668Y2A0066 flanked the set to keep baby safe and in frame.) 

Radio slave: The Interfit S1 TTL Remote slave works with the Honey Badger units too, so I used that with no issues.

We got some great shots in the 10 minutes we had till the cake was destroyed and the baby was on to other adventures.

The Honey Badger specs:  version2_med

  • 320w per second flash
  • 8 Groups (that means you can have up to 8 heads set on different power outputs)
  • 15 channels
  • 7-stops (320ws-5w's) with 10 stop increments
  • Sync capablity at 1/250th sec
  • 1 second recycle time
  • Bowens® s-type-mount for all your favorite modifiers
  • And the pièce de résistance- a modeling lamp with a dimmable 5600k bulb that is a powerful 60W LED. (yes folks, that means you can also use this unit as a continuous light and shoot some video.... although it is probably best used for video without sound because of the audible fan in the head)

All and all,

I have to say the Honey Badger is a winner. It's compact, versatile, strong enough for most shoots at 320w's, and has an unbeatable price point.... not to mention the free soft-box and unbelievably strong modeling /continuous light feature. It's a great starter light for photographers and a great addition to any gear list. And it's cute too!
