Looking to buy my first strobe and use a speedlight as rim for outdoor and on location indoor portraits.
Just wanted impressions of the brightness of the modeling light of the profoto B1 if it was used on location indoors. I believe the specs are that it has a 20 watt Led modeling lamp which equals around 70 watts conventional modeling bulb which sounds pretty dim.
I keep comparing the Profoto D1 which has a 300 watt modeling bulb and is a few hundred cheaper even with Buff VLM battery and ND filter and the Profoto B1 which has the advantage of HSS, TTL and no cord but the modeling light that appears to be dimmer.
I have never seen in person either of these lights. If you have used or own either of these lights your impressions will be greatly appreciated. I will probably purchase either unit preowned.
