Can verso and Grafit A4 be integrated to work together?
Does Grafit A4 have battery package like verso A2 and if I buy Grafit A4 what do I do instead for location in case it doesn't have Battery package like verso?
I realize I have to start from the powerpacks first. which ones?
Then I can mix and match
The Grafit is a generator so it is not battery independent. If you want location then mobile power pack is the starter which offer 1,200watt/h for one head and 600watt/h X 2 head, symmetrical. The mobile power pack can be converted to use A/C in studio, using studio booster. I suggest you to have at least 3 battery to be sure for location work. The Verso A2 is very good, modern and have many control like the Grafit, although not as much. It has 3 distribution so it supports up to 3 head, with symmetrical and asymmetrical distribution and it supports up to 300watt modeling light. It is naturally an A/C independent system but with a plug-in battery, it become a mobile power pack, and very fast to work with.
The benefit to use single branded system is perhaps more consistent color balance, and the identical (with minimized tolerance) power output, which is important if you want to shoot an even lit object (car, for example), using multiple head/pack system. I ahve been very happy with Bron-color, although they are not the cheaper ones, but a good lighting system can use for many years, it is a worthy investment.
With IR system or the triggering system they can work together, I guessed this is what you mean "integrated". But if you refer to computer controlled integrated system, perhaps you need to have all the powerpack be Grafit. I do not have all the system in this matter but I can move around the pack to adjust the lighting individually so I guessed it is not that much important for me. But for shooting situation that you need to have remote control option, like an big event, museum and so on, perhaps you need to consider this, but, in case needed, you can always rent the equipment, I just don't think I need it everyday.
I do not have the flooter, so better have the user who has experiecen to reply to you, my type of work so far has allowed me the option not to use it. And for the honeycomb grids, yes, I used it on all my heads for focusing light or to create light drops.
If you want to start minimum, try mobile pack and add the A/C studio booster, and it will elevate the output a bit. And then, you can try Nano 2, or Nano A4. My best advise is that it is always better to do 1 pack-1 head, but of course, all the bron-color power pack gives you at least 2 lamphead. Lighting can eventually be expensive, but wihtout a good lighting, the investment on camera can be seriously compromised.
