Just ran across this as I was pondering on how to work with the issue of no modeling lamp for a strobist setup. I think one might be able to press this into service. I'll speculate that it won't be bright enough to overpower the sun, but it might be enough to figure out where to place the shadows and it's cheap enough to be worth a gamble. Has anyone tried it? For those of you experienced with your strobist equipment who may not have used it... What do you think about it's potential?
