As the Robus tripod and monopod lineup was already competitively priced before the discounts, the newly introduced savings make these support products especially attractive.
Make no mistake, these are high quality tripods and monopods as Bryan found out when he reviewed the Robus RC-5570 Vantage Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod shown above.
While this monolight may not be excessively powerful, it'll work well for many studio portrait/still life needs and, with its ultra-popular Bowens S mount and extremely low sale price, represents a great opportunity to expand one's photographic capabilities if new to off-camera lighting.
Keep in mind that you will need some way to trigger this light, such as a radio trigger or another flash (set to a manual, non-TTL mode).

Professional photographers demand comprehensive assistance from camera makers, including state-of-the-art technology, top-class performance, customized service and a strong support network.
Canon is active behind the scenes at a wide variety of sporting events, aiming to achieve "zero downtime" for professional photographers so they're never forced to stop and miss definitive moments of these intense competitions.

Thanks to such efforts, Canon-brand equipment comprised an approximately 70% share of cameras1 used by press photographers at match venues during the knock out stage of Rugby World Cup 2019.
At each of the matches held between the 12 tournament venues, Canon has aimed to help realize a successful tournament as an official sponsor by establishing service stations within stadium grounds to provide fast maintenance and repair of equipment.

Devices like this can make life much easier (and more fun). I have similarly-capable Amazon Echo Dots in my living room, kitchen, and studio and use them to turn on turn on the lights/air conditioning, recite news while I cook, and give me the weather forecast as I prepare to head out the door.

Join Daniel Norton OnSet as he creates dappled patterns of light for a fun portrait look.
Often times when we are using natural light, we see patterns coming through trees/fences etc and use that light to accent our portraits.
With this technique you can do it in a consistently repeatable fashion.
