    Victoria, question, why did you have them modified for speedo's? Curious choice, lovely work as always

    I had speedotron black line for very long time. I have fresnels, elipsoidals, transparency projectors & other exotic light sources modified for speedos. Back in hey days a lot of Hollywood lighting was modified for flashes and speedo was de facto the base.

    It wouldn't be portable, I've thought about trying a circular florescent (kitchen) light mounted to a studio camera.

    Really? Wow! I always thought Profoto was the defacto.

    Thanks for educating me

    Portable, anywhere 120 volt power is available.

    Profoto and other high end strobes have battery powered power packs to match their strobes FYI.

    They also often accept both 120 and 220 power for recharging.

    I meant the circular kitchen fluorescent, is there a battery that would run that for a while?
    Maybe 12v with an inverter?

    Re: ringflash suggestions??

    thanks all

    I gave up on the ringflash concept.. and just bolted on my regular sunpack 120J on a sidearm

    the whole deal is I wanted portable and movable.. I will be walking around the pre-parade set up area..and it's much easier going to them then tryin g to drag them back to where ever you have set up

    anyway..here is what I settled on
