    This may be a possibility but not likely.

    The youguo specs are at 105mm which is zoomed out; it will be much less at wider angle, but probably comparable to the others. Must have a fresnel magnifier on it like the 285hv?

    An old cheap studio strobe like a white lightning 10000 will have a GN of 220 and doesn't need the modeling light if you want to run it off inverter.

    The vivitar specs are Guide Number: 141' at ISO 100 and 105mm.

    I'd love to have 200+ at 35 or 50mm

    I also have a cheap interfit moonlight which says 300ws. The gn for the interfit is 160 which is less than my speedlight. Can this be possible? The moonlight is much heavier at around 10 lbs shouldn't it be way more powerful than a speedlight?

    What's even more interesting is that the speedlight produces roughly 80ws vs the moonlight which produces 300ws.

    Rent a Honda 5000W generator and some strobes. It's heavy equipment, but some things can't be done on the cheap. Some rental shops will even ship the whole pile to your location.

    Does anyone know where I can find this device?

    I think the solution to my problem is flashbulbs
