Re: Alient Bees strobes reliability and alternatives? UK based

Yes, they can handle heavy shooting pretty well - we shoot 1500-2000 images in a typical volume shoot over a full day. We are on AC power, and the only thing I have noticed after heavy shooting is that the non-OEM modeling light (we upgraded to a higher wattage modeling bulb) can get de-powdered on the inside from the heat of repeated strobe blasts I suspect. The color can shift if you do not allow the flash to recharge fully before shooting again.
