You’re also mistaken that a fresnel “increases strobe output”. It doesn’t, and once you test it should be obvious why - you’re putting a piece of glass over the head, and thus reducing output by forcing the light to pass through a medium.

I'm puzzled. Surely a fresnel have the ability to increase the brightness on the subject by several stops (compared to a standard reflector)?
