My issue would be batteries. It would suck to need to move it and have the batteries in the remote or panlight itself die on you...

No different than the flash itself or triggers. Assuming you start with fresh batteries, runtime will surely outlast your Speedlight or most single events. If you use rechargeables and have a decent charger to check capacity, you'll also have an idea of total runtime left before each shoot. I might be more worried about my smartphone dying than this device.

I would buy several if it could hold an umbrella. I think I will give one a try. I can certainly see uses at events.

If you think you would miss a shot by having to physically walk over and move the light, how is it going to be when you have to walk over and dig out batteries from your bag and then go the panlight and change batteries.

This wouldn't be that useful for me so my input doesn't really matter but I try to avoid putting extra items in my bag that need more batteries.

I can't see the batteries being an issue. How many times are you going to be using the motor to redirect the flash?

Then why get the panlight in the first place? If I buy something, I'm certainly going to use it. Buying this and barely using it for the function it offers is pointless.

I am not going to make it spin around just because I can *LOL*. redirecting the light and not have to walk 20 ft is fantastic!!!! Not that I am lazy but clients are thinking way is he messing with that light again and not shooting *LOL*

Tweaking the light from a remote device sounds like the way to go.. IMO

I think it is a great idea for my needs.


Time will tell.
