Does anyone have any experience of these lights?

They appear to be sourced only through Photomart. Are they any good?

I'm looking to renew my studio kit that's now getting a little aged and looking at options. Currently using Elinchrom so considering BRX 500 kit, but am impressed by the potential of decent battery powered kit.

Choices, choices, choices.

I believe Ilux is a brand that is made by photo mart.

So support is limited to them unlike the lines of bowens etc

The lights are not made in Germany, however the flash tubes are sourced from a German supplier. I have demonstrated the lights at The Photography Show this year (Summits) and the other models at Focus last year. During both shows we experienced no issues and spoke to a number of people that were existing users that were very happy with them.

really interested to know how these lights preform at a three hour event. As a one man band anything that reduces set up and take down is a great option.
