Re: The Cost of Profoto just can't be justified anymore

I nearly forgot about the Hawk, my mentor used it with his Hasselblad, Dynalite kit and Elinchrom Octa shooting for magazines like Time, People and ESPN the Magazine to name a few. My first radio kit was the first version of the Pocket Wizard and it worked well until I transitioned to digital and discovered the the term, "latching" which rendered them useless. These days I'm quite happy with the PlusX units.

Back on topic, Profoto seemed to lose touch when they went to battery powered monolights with flat glass in front of the flashtube. Like Apple, Adobe and others they became even more profit driven and lost touch with advanced amateurs and pros. I still love my Acute2 kit but have little interest in their current offerings.
