Alien Bees are great lights. I just bought two B800s. I had a Novatron 400M and use it with them. I like the B800s better. I bought three air cushioned light stands and Wescot umbrellas from B&H. Now if I could just keep my wits about me and remember to plug the flash cord into the leaf shutter instead of the camera body when using the LF lens I wouldn't end up with a roll of blank film!
