You wouldn't catch me dead using Normans...wait...yes you would.

I've used a pretty wide variety of strobes, and if youre really serious about what you do, unless is says speedotron, profoto, or broncolor on the side...it's not worth the time or money because that's what you'll end up with anyway.

Profoto D1's are a great kit to get started with.
