Photokina - The Bowens and Interfit Stands: Studio Lighting

Photokina is the world's biggest photographic and imaging trade show. It is being held in the Cologne Exhibition Centre, the Kölnmesse, from September 21st to the 26th, and a team from Wex Photographic have travelled to Germany to see what new and exciting products are being announced and on display at Photokina.

For the benefit of any of you that are interested in the Photokina happenings, but didn't want to travel to Germany, weren't able to go to Germany, or, like some of us, had to stay behind and work while your colleagues went to Germany, we will be updating you with all the latest goings-on via the WEX blog and Twitter. What's more, in an exciting new venture for WEX, we will be bringing you a visitor's-eye view of some of the stands and products in the form of WEX TV video clips!

So, keep coming back to the WEX blog and we'll update you with the latest information, news and videos as they come in.

Bowens studio lights and modifiers

Bowens equipment has been found in the studios of professional photographers for many years. With more and more enthusiast amateur photographers trying their hand at studio based photography, photographers everywhere are learning how the combination of quality, reliable construction and clever, effective technology make Bowens one of the most respected lighting brands.

In this video the Wex Photographic team at Photokina in Cologne talk to Terry Caws from Bowens about their range of studio lighting, the portable battery packs, the new light-modifiers including the Octobox, and the all new 330 and 530 fluorescent cool-lights.

Interfit Cool-lites and Strobies flash modifiers

Up until quite recently studio lighting was the reserve of the professional photographer, being both too expensive and too complicated for amateur use. Interfit were one of the leading brands in changing that, and their affordable, simple to use lighting kits and Strobies flashgun adapters are encouraging photographers to have ago at more creative lighting.

In this video Tony from Interfit talks to the Wex Photographic team at Photokina about some of Interfit's newly launched products. These include child friendly Cool-lites, an easy to put up softbox and new light modifiers and accessories in Interfit's Strobies range for use with flashguns.
