I'm trying to figure it out Drew, for sure. I am on the lookout for a clean used Beseler 45S color head for what they normally go for $150-$250, but no luck so far. The questions I have about that setup is how hot does it run and how diffuse is it compared to my cold light head, any fan vibration issues, etc? And what are the differences between the 45 and the 45S color heads besides the latter being a mechanical type?
It will work fine with my StopClock Vario as when the light sensor is disconnected, the Vario works like the regular StopClock.
Anyone else know of any other downsides to using the 45S over my cold light head and below lens filters?
