1st Set of Lights (Photogenc StudioMax III)
Sep 8, 2006

I've been using the lights that are included in part of studio rental. They are getting old in the tooth so I decided to purchase my own.

I started with a Photogenic StudioMax III 320 W-S kit. It contains 2 320 W-S AC/DC liights, umbrellas, 24x30 softbox. etc. I also purchased a Photogenic snoots and grids package on Ebay. Decided to pay more for the AC/DC version so I can shoot outside with a Quantam or Photogenic battery.

I know that 320 is not a lot of power but I mainly do portrait (head & full body) so I'm hoping it is suffcient. If I continue with photography my though is to add a pair of PL 1250s and use the 320's for hair and background.

I'm having a bit of buyers remorse and thinking I should have gone directly to to the 1250's

Does anyone out there use the Photogenic? Did I just waste $750?
