For the time and aggravation they have cost you, you could could be cranking right along with a head and pack system.

Photons by the bag.

You got a camera, now go out and get a life; or at least a picture of one!

don't want a head and pack system. We use our lights on location with a vagabond battery. Basically, my read on these is that they have a design defect and are unable to dissipate the heat from being in a 22" beauty dish.

I'm going to call them monday and read them the riot act but unless they're willing to upgrade me to the 600RX lights (i'll be glad to pay the difference) I'm going to dump them and go back to alien bees and perhaps the Einstein for a main light in the beauty dish.
