Yup exactly. Depends on your usage and requirements.

As you would have picked up in my posts and likely read inbetween the lines, a studio strobe set for me personally, won't just be for my enjoyment. It will be an adaptation of helping me pump up my bank account. But if its for your own personal enjoyment, oh yeah, why put a mortgage on your home for this stuff?

@ WriterOfLight, research now. Nail it down to what you need to get the job done. You can get so lost in the sea of this gear and it all starts to look like a blur after a while otherwise (a big white blur... LOL). And keep asking people, as we've probably all done. And remember, a failed shot is something you learn from.
