At the moment I have 2 Yongnuo 600 EX-RT flashes.
I just watched this video to see the differences between speedlites & strobes.
For portraits a Flashpoint 320M 150Ws of $99 would be sufficient (1 sec recycling time).
The Alienbee B400 160Ws recycles in 0.5 sec but costs more than double $224.95 (smaller,lighter) and only 10ws more.
Mostly I do outside shoots, for a portait f8 with a 150W monolight would be sufficient (that 500W or 1000W to light up a basketball field would be a wast of money)
My question is : which comparable brands/types are likewise or even better -$225 ? (if really necessary $500 max
Speedlites usuale give 55ws to 60ws power, any idea how much power my 600EX-RT gives ?
Strobes have 150ws up till 2000ws power, so a serieus difference, even the cheaper ones have allready double power.
I found here a nice article about budget strobes :
Which specifications are also important next to the output & recycling time ?
What I don't understand is that the Gn (Guide number) of my Yongnuo 600 EX-RT is 60 (so up till 60 meters)
And if I compare to this E300 strobe here, the Gn is only 58, so less power than my Yongnuo ?
