Re: Speedlights vs Studio Strobes?
If in a studio setting (formal studio or temp on location) I prefer studio monolights.
- There is usually a consistency of light output;
- A/C powered so no need to break down to change batteries.
Price-wise good deals can be gotten through B&H (Impact) and Adorama (Flashpoint).
I purchased a set of Impacts and later a set of Flashpoints (under $300/set) to do church directory portraits on location. I use an inexpensive camera mounted flash to trip the studio lights. I also use 36" gold reflectors.
Some monolight kits can be had for about $300. Sometimes sales can bring the cost down even further.
