Note to self.... check OP's website before talking smack.

<waits for others to remove foot from mouth>

I saw his website. Very nice work indeed. I just think it's funny what exactly prompted the OP's decision to go with 4 Einsteins! lol

Yep. I was researching the profoto and broncolor. WOW. They are "super" expensive. I'm also on the same boat as you. I'll be picking up a few Einstein also and selling off my bees. A few things I don't like about the bees is that they aren't color consistent. And the other is the flash duration isn't fast enough. Looking forward to seeing those amazing photos from you with the Einsteins. Keep up the great work man.

+1 to this.

Some how super doesnt do the price justice. There needs to be a new word that describes how expensive they are. :lol:

i think profoto is great for studio work, its a lot of equipment. I have used them a handful of times. Theyre nice dont get me wrong but i think you just work whats best for you. One day for me maybe.

oh for sure. I have eli and its good enough for me, but I lust after broncolor. Dial in the flash duration and temp, no need for gels anymore and tons of power :D

I dont know if that one day will ever come for me :lol: I cant justify the cost of buying vs renting for the few times I would really need them.

I looked at the Profoto user guide, only one close was B2 2400. It speced t.5 at 12000, to 1600.

And they have several different color temp ranges depending on power setting that are unclear as well.

I wish ISO would spec duration, color temp and output measuring methodology. We all know what ISO means for film/sensor sensitivity. Would be nice if it was standardized for light output specs as well.

Agreed
I dont care what they used as long as they all used the same thing. MPG and HP are standard and easy to compare cars. Strobe companies need to hop on it.

Ha acoustic trigger, which also fell in the bucket of water. It took me about 7 hours total over 2 separate shoots to get it. I wanted these headphones over the balloon. but the water ended up being too distracting imo, taking away the attention of the subject, the headphones
