Strobes are losing their appeal ...

I've had two conversations with KEH and MBP for selling a couple of very new Flashpoint/Godox ADXplor400Pro units (the trigger is for Pentax).

They aren't interested ... as in they won't even try and price the strobes.

When I had a conversation with Kevin, at KEH, (a really smart guy) he explained that as the ISO capability has improved on modern sensors, strobes have become much less in demand.

My read is that a large segment of strobe applications were primarily for mixing with ambient light. New tech cameras have removed that need.

Personally, I love just straight strobe lighting for portraiture, etc., w/o any ambient light. But then, I never did run with the cool kids.

Question, are you seeing less studio lighting in use ?

Thanks,
