When did Profoto actually make sense? I can't think of the time when it did even before Godox ever came around. There have always been lights that were just as good, if not better that were less expensive and some were a lot less expensive.

There are a few brands that reptesent the photographic version of "bling" such as Leica, Hasselblad, Phase One, among others. I think that Profoto falls within that category.

When everything is said and done, a light is a light is a light. All it has to do is work.

This is one of the best posts I have read in the lighting forum.

Lower cost lighting gear like Godox has allowed me to learn multi-light setups because I can buy a 4-5 light setup and practice without going broke.

I guess it is human nature to be proud of gear you own and recommend it to others.
