Re: How much brighter are studio strobes than speedlights?

@drh681 You mean with a flash meter. Trying to decide if I should get one, have never used one, since it's my thought it's the results that matter, not the readout on a device.

How would that be superior to eyeballing the results like I did in my test? I matched the full power SB-900's histogram with the closest one from the X2400, which required brightening the 1/8 power X2400 image artificially in Lightroom by 1/3 stop.
