I generally use manual mains voltage strobes in a studio environment, taking readings with a flash meter, this works for me with the limited type of stuff I do and I'm happy with that.

Fiddling about in a cupboard I came across a forgotten collapsible softbox and bracket, it weighs next to nothing and along with a light stand it will fit in a shopping bag. So I thought I may as well get a manual speedlight, I'm happy to take flash readings and trigger it with my existing trigger.

I'm looking for a speedlight recommendation please, I was thinking of this

Attached is the pic of the bracket and softbox.

If you're going to get a flash don't go Yonguo , you might as well get a Godox TT600 instead:

And this is the trigger to fire it:

The godox version is as good or even better than the Yonguo but its much more scalable system all the way up to powerful strobes if you want to progress further. The Yonguo system dead ends with speedlights.

Thanks @CyVan that's an avenue I'll go down. I have Yongnuo triggers at the mo, but as long as there's a sync socket on the Godox that will be fine. I just want something that's portable to take to family events.
