Working with constant lighting takes the guesswork out of the equation. The ability to place and project light in different colours and at different strengths continually makes you think about your composition and the many ways you could light your subject.
The portability of the system allows you to get down and dirty with your macro subjects and see the possibilities you never ever saw before.
In addition, you can add to the system as you go along or as you skills and photography needs develop.
The Adaptalux system is innovative and fun to use. Moreover, it’s a demonstration of what can be achieved when you have a clear goal.
Highly recommended

Enjoying using my recent purchase and the uv arms open new possibilities to macro photography.Very clever

I ordered my Adaptalux studio over the New Year period when typically shipping anything to Australia is difficult. Not so with my Adaptalux starter pack, it arrived in 4 days. Everything was very well packed and I was able to start using it the day it arrived. Thanks for a great product backed by great service.

7th February 2023

My order was delivered Down Under in little more than a week and Sam/Ben answered a couple of beginner’s queries overnight.
The products are sturdy and versatile. I discovered that the pod plus lights were best used attached to a spare tripod. I’ve been trying to watch all the excellent videos. I’ve been trying out various lenses and thinking of imaginative subjects. This is going to be so much fun!!

In a time when personalized service & interaction with online companies is non-existent Adaptalux is above & apart! The email I sent asking for assistance was replied to within hours followed by a further interchange on tweaking my custom package – then they shipped out asap & it arrived in 3 days! (UK to South Africa – this is a type of world record! in Dec!) but that is not where it stops. Upon opening the large box there was a letter…yes a letter. A personal thank you for my order & a Yorkshire tea bag! – amazing extra touch! followed by a welcome email – with “let’s get started“ links tutorials & tips – I saw some moans about the cost, but here you get far more than you pay for!

Good experience with this system and the accompanying videos helped me to get to grips with the system pretty quickly.
Looking forward to eventually getting the UV lights and possibly a strobe or two even though I am a big fan of the always on lighting.

20th August 2022

I recently purchased this system and love it! Used purple and green lights with diffusers to highlight fresh asparagus and I thought it looked awesome. I will continue to play with the lights and macro lens! I would definitely recommend this and in the future, I plan on adding the led arms.
I am in Canada and I still find it hard to believe that this arrived in 3 days! Good job!

As I start to use my kit I’m finding the flexibility of control over the lights with the associated app is very useful. I also referred to the FAQ’s on the website to successfully solve a question by following the recommended advice – problem solved!

The uses of the individual light sources on the object is ingenious. It’s like post-processing images in the beginning…
I still have a lot to practice, especially in the macro area, but with this system it is really fun. (The first fly looked somewhat extraterrestrial) I can really recommend this system.

Since receiving my Adaptalux Studio lighting it has been a game changer. The flexibility that it provides and the ability to the light and more so the color of the lighting is exactly what I was looking for. I can’t wait to add other lighting arms. The build quality is fantastic. Kudos to the team at Adaptalux.

The Adaptalux Studio proved invaluable in letting me position lights of different colors and intensities to illuminate not only macro scenes but also still life compositions. The flexibility of the lighting arms together with use of the iphone app allowed me to adjust, balance and dial in just the right amount of light in real time, in live view, to bring the atmosphere I was looking for to life. This versatility of the Adaptalux Studio has opened up many new opportunities to explore the creative use of lighting.

A very versatile solution to macro photography! The quality of the system is wonderful. We are rare coin dealers so the system does work well for that purpose. (Not a criticism!) I would like to see a unit offered that would have like 2 ports so I could use a unit on each side. It’s too expensive to do this pairing. The alternative with the current unit might be to offer options of longer light shafts. I use a “shoot from above system from a copy stand and the focal length I need for certified coins in slabs doesn’t allow me to reach a lateral lighting scheme when using the unit from the supplied cold shoe configuration. Longer arms would be the solution. Good product otherwise.

I purchased a basic built my own set with four arms. I shoot mostly weddings and was looking for lighting my macro ring shots. This system certainly opened me up to many creative options.
It’s easy to use and the results are fantastic.
Fast shipping
Great customer service

I recently completed Macro video filming of Gemstones and Jewellery for a Japanese National Television program. The very well built Adaptalux kit helped me get some amazing shots and the producers were not only impressed with the kit but how the images turned out and the kind of intricate control I had over the lighting. Macro video shooting can be challenging and the Adaptalux kit was in my opinion was essential – in speed, getting the look I wanted and the kind of micro adjustments needed to make it all come together.

Love the system. I even ordered the carry case to put them in. The box they came in was good, but I just wanted better protection and easy access.
Love the lights and the MACRO video ideas you share.

31st July 2021

So easy from purchase to delivery to follow up.
Great quality product. Really versatile. I follow Ben on YouTube for project ideas.
I just wonder if you may create warm white light as I sometimes find the white light arms pretty cold , just an idea though 🙂
I love the UV lamps, still practicing to get my camera settings right though.
2 photos I’ve taken so far, a UV flower and a still life called ‘a grate family photo’ 😁

I have owned my studio for just over a year. After stumbling across a video on YouTube, I was impressed with what I saw. And thought this is something even I could use, and I was right. With everything being compact as they are, it is quite easy to maneuver around just about any set up I can come up with. And being able to take the lights outside in the dark, I am not stumbling around heavy equipment. So, the mobility I have with my studio, is very satisfying.

The photo I submitted was a mistake photo, I was only focusing, but I pressed to hard, but I do like the results.

20th July 2021

The studio system was easy to set up and use. So many possibilities with the colours available
