Powerful portable strobe/power pack?
Oct 9, 2012

I attended a workshop this weekend where a photographer was using a Quadra Ranger system to shoot senior portraits outside to get the sky properly exposed (or actually underexposed) while also properly exposing the senior.  I currently do this using a Vagabond and White Lightning x1600...with a total weight of around 30 lbs.  His setup was round 5 lbs...but he said it cost $2400.  My question is...is there a similar setup for under $1000?  I have the stands and modifiers, would just need the light and power pack.  I know I can do this with speedlights using no modifiers, but I prefer a softer shadow than that gives me.  Thanks for any suggestions.
