I cant really think of a better solution for lighting interiors than 8 d1 airs

Add Dedolights and you're there.

I carry 3 of the 150s and 1 800. I wouldn't leave home without them.

Specs are right here: http://www.profoto.com/D1/technical-data.php


Thanks for posting the specs. I am familiar with those specs but I am not sure what they translate to in real world shooting. My RX600 is rated at .25-.8 seconds, but it is nothing near that in real shooting. That is why I am asking about practical experience.

My experience with Profoto has been that the specs for color, consistency and recycle times are accurate. At least they have been with my Pro 6, Pro 7, Acute 2s, compact 300s/600s and D1 Air 500s.

You were looking for 'low' power settings and 3 frames a second. Define low power and I'll test the D1 500s.

Since the rx600 has 6 stops I look at low as anything from lowest to 1.5 stops above lowest setting. Hence, using the 10 points scale, 1.5 is lowest on the RX600 and 3.0 is where I would expect the rx600 to start slowing down.

My experience shooting with the rx600 is that they do not keep up with the Canon's 5DII rapid fire set at 1/160 shutter. For every shot there is a complete miss fire, and that is at low settings and the same applies to other lights I use on the set like the rx300 and fx200ri.

It'll be a day or two until I can do a test. I'll post the results.

Why I was driving and thinking about PocketWizards, I have no idea, and no justification for it.

Lack of testosterone.  Remember when it used to be girls?

Give Floyd Landis a call. Those patrches did wonders for his career!    


Although he appears to have a bad case of steriod psychosis now.... I thinbk he is humiliated that he isn't still racing on a class A level, and sat around stewing about it all winter ... Sorry, OT.

Cheers!

Further research indicates that, while testosterone may be a "short term" fix, LSD 25 is the **real** solution!

This is a direct quote from my local paper, printed yesterday, Thursday May 27. Remember the date!:


"(police) officers ... also found sayings with two girls' names that, when added together, equalled love"


All of that basic research over the years - peeking in windows, shining flashlights in parked cars, riffling through your dads drawers - finally pays off!  

Of course, as in most police states, they won't tell us what the answer is! I have a call in to the Beattles for comment ...
