WOW I see a nice soccer ball holder and three cases of beer

Yus! Good eye, its a similar ball to the one they had in the "Little less conversation!" video, picked it up in Italy while i was visiting some cousins, i could never find a good way of displaying it though, t'ill i flipped the nano ;)

Beer cases make awesome appleboxes.

I use a Vagabond mini to power a DLite4 (non-it) and at full power with 2 of them there are issues, 1 of them is fine.

There is a battery pack made specially for bi-voltage units like the DLites, the tronix.

So while the Vagabonds may work, and lots of people are using them okay, its not guaranteed and your mileage may vary, for 1 DLite4 it should be fine, (It or not)

To answer the previous question, 320$ seems a normal price for a DL4 iT. Although i am Canadian, so my view might be skewed a bit.

....tronix mini or explorer xt that is.
Listen to Case Jaynez, you can either buy the vagabond or the tronix but with the vagabond you'll have issues running 2 strobes with it.
That issue happens also with the explorer xtse but shouldn't happen with the new to come xt3 which will handle multivoltage strobes (more than one) as the little brother tronix mini

so if you plan on goin on location with MORE than one strobe you have to consider either the tronix mini (little dude of the tronix line...I have it and I can work 2 dlites4 on it with no problem) or the xt3 (more expensive but you'll have to wait since I believe it's not available yet.
If you know already you won't be buying a second strobe in one year or more than if you want you can buy the vagabond...but I don't see the advantage of doing that. cost maybe but again, if you want to add a second strobe you wanna change the battery, so there it goes the savings...your choice

wow guys, nice that's snowing down there, ehm right there...wish it would snow here as well...instead we have a damn dry weather that's continuing from xmas. :(

Anyway, yesterday I went to my photog friend (a pro) who was intended to dismiss some of his studio stuff. Remember that some days ago I asked about booms, stands and stuff?
well, no more worries about them LOL.
He gave me for FREE a manfrotto 007 or 008 (i don't know which one is, I believe the 007, 3 stage should be it) with wheels and 2 manfrotto heavy duty stands, don't know the name of those too. It's the old version where manfrotto still didn't put the code names on them. they are steel (not painted black) veeeeery sturdy and hugee.....and all for FREE!!!
quite happy guys.

Now I just need to order the boom 085bsl...but after lookin at his 2 025 super booms I remained quite shocked by the size of them LOOL.
So dunno, maybe I'll go for a smaller one. I just can't figure out the dimension of the 085. they have pretty crappy pictures everywhere. I wanna know the real dimension near real objects LOL.

Next I'll concentrate onto backdrops and background system...those 2 new sturdy stands might simplify the job. I could just buy the horizontal 272B and be good to go. then buy the paper and voilà, set the BG.

The worst part is sometimes i forget the shovel inside the car, thats about pelvis high snow, so the words won't even open, much less the trunk.

So, once upon a time i made myself some drying boards.. basically needed space to lay flat newly printed photos for drying, that could then be put away to take minimal space.

But every year, around the holidays i end up overflowing :(

Thats some nice way of storing the prints.

You should get one of these.

Please help

I'm looking into my first lighting set. If you were me which one would you start with? I know nothing about strobes. It's going to be used in a home studio.

Dave jr is just the man for you.

He's gone over to the dark side, but he's still alright in my book.:lol:

I don't know what you lighting experience is or what space you'll be shooting in, but it you're just getting into it I would start small and work up.
