If you want a deal, look for a used Profoto Acute, Dynalite or Broncolor kit. The downside is if you need to replace a flashtube but they can be found on the used market. As stated before, it's the modifiers that make the images better. I use Elinchrom, Profoto and Chimera modifiers so remember the speedrings.

Very good advice. I'm not looking for a deal though. I could write a check for the $30K if I thought it would make a difference. I just can't justify it in my mind though. If my $400 strobes has a color shift and cycle slow, I'd easily justify $1500 strobes.
