    I don't know about the portaflash brand, but this is a really good starter kit that's only a little more:

    It's also compatible with Elinchrom's modifiers so it makes a nice upgrade path.

    Yes, you can trigger them with the built in flash, but you will get more creative results if you do not always have to use the on camera flash

    Thanks for the replies!

    So that little £8.99 dohickey should be the only other bit of kit I need to make it all work!

    Well, time to write my letter to Santy Clause. :p

    It's so easy to drown out the pop up when using studio strobes, that it's not going to be a problem.

    I have to crank a 320w/s B800 down to 1/4 or less to just be able to use it with my speed lights at 1/2-1/1. The pop up might illuminated the same scene at full power as a 200 w/s strobe at 1/16 or less.
