I need help on a power issue for lighting.
I currently shoot studio work with an older Novatron 1500VR with 4 heads, and it has been very reliable for me. Eventually, I'll upgrade to something that is a little more controllable, but this works well enough for me.
I have been asked to do a location shoot, and need to bring lighting with me out into an area where there will be no power. The only power will be what I bring out there, or what I hook into off the SUV.
With that in mind, I've been looking at the Vagabond II battery pack. It states that it is designed for use with ABs/ WLs, but I can't think of a reason why it wouldn't work with the Novatron power pack. Its a pure sine inverter coming off a battery, so it should be clean.
Has anyone tried this, or something similar already? If its not possible, I'll pick up a AB1600 along with the Vagabond II, but I would rather not spend the extra money at this moment if I could avoid it.
Thanks for any help or other ideas, I appreciate it.
