I'm going to try a little off camera lighting very soon. I will be using my D3s and sb900. I'm going to purchase a basic Westcott 28" softbox and Manfrotto stand. I have intentions of upgrading to Einstein's in the future, but not too soon. May also add a Vivitar 285hv before upgrading to the strobes. I will mainly be doing portraits of 1-3 people, mostly family.
I can't decide if I want to stick with the basic Plus II's or the Flex. I like the Flex, but coming from Canon I know there were problems with interference. Would you folks recommend the Flex over the Plus II's? I have also considered other options, but have decided to use Pocketwizards. I also don't see any reason to use the Mini. The size is not an issue as far as I can see.
The cost difference is negligible, I want a product that will give me the most consistent results with the least headache.
Please don't hold it against me for switching to the darkside...
I appreciate any opinions/input provided!
