Re: is More Powerful Best ?

There is very little difference between 400Ws and 600Ws (only 0.2 stop more power) or between 1000Ws and 1200Ws (0.1 stop increase).  On the other hand there is about a 1.4 stop increase between 400Ws and 1200Ws.

If you are using base ISO and f/8 or so then for large diffusers like 4'x6' softboxes and large groups you need the higher power.  Go with the 1000Ws or the 1200Ws strobes in that case.  Remember you will still have the 400Ws strobes for individual portraits.
