I have a Sony a200. Will a Interfit EX150 MKII Home Studio work with it?

Hi there.

I've just started taking headshots for actors. First with tin foil over a bit of card and I've now progressed to my first reflector! Next step to get a Studio Kit.

I've seen the Interfit EX150 for under 200 but I'm unsure how it will sync the flash with my Sony a200. Will I need to buy an adaptor for the sony a200 because it does not have the sync connector like the a900.

PLEASE HELP!!!!

I would like to progress to taking full length model / dancer shots. Will this kit be ok baring in mind i'm only taking shots in an average size living room against funky backdrops. The bulbs are only 100w.

I'm only using a 50mm minolta lens which doesn't quiet fit in my room for full length shots but great for headshots.

What lens should I get for full length?

So many questions

Looking forward to all your super photo knowledge.

Many Thanks

Adam

Re: I have a Sony a200. Will a Interfit EX150 MKII Home Studio work with it?

A quick look at Interfit site shows following

Quote:
The Infra red cell allows you to work in the studio without the use of sync cables . When you use a INT411 infra red transmitter (IRX) connected to the camera hotshoe. It is this cell that receives the small flash from the IRX.

The cell will also receive flash lighting (white light from another EX150 head) The use of a INT411 will operate both heads wirelessly.
That means you can trigger by a cheap IR trigger from EBAY (approx 20) or the legite Interfit vsn at 32 :- Interfit INT411 IRX InfraRed Flash Trigger - Next Day UK Delivery , or even by your flashgun or built in flash. Set either to manual & lowest power, to not interfere with studio lighting.

Hope that helps

Dave has given you the answer to your question, but when you say

Bear in mind that you can easily get a wide angle lens to do this, but wide angle lenses do distort the image and are not best for portrait work for this reason.

I've seen a lot of reports that say that the EX150 kit is OK for head and shoulders shots, but not powerful enough for full length. I cannot say if this is right or wrong, but it will be worth checking before you buy.
