I did a search on studio light and studio flash in the "topic" advanced search and apart from Saunder's post on Bowens capatability got a surprisingly four hits.
Strange isn't it that we shoot large, use smaller aperatures. etc etc. to avoid grain but not much discussion on studio lighting?
I'm curious to know other people's experience on buying preowned studio flash.
I did. It was impossible to repair (the camera store in NYC said to send it to a museum, YES, i'm quoting him). They cost more to buy new than many of your cameras AND they seldom are purchased alone (2 or more right?).
Is it like a car: designed to burn itself out? Disposable? Repairable? How repairable?
The Dlite-2 seems affordable, but for LF maybe the increased output of the Dlite 4 (800 wats/s) is better? (i hear they run hot=> will tubes burn out?)
Horror stories, anyone?
