Yikes. Just saw this video on Scott Kelby’s site for the Elinchrom Ranger Quadra strobe system. It solves every single one of my location-lighting problems…except one.
The strobe heads are incredibly small and light. The battery pack is incredibly small and light. The power output is incredibly large (for the size) and puts out a lot of…light. This is the perfect walk-around-and-shoot set up.
With one exception: purchasing this system would make my wallet incredibly small and light. $2200 street price for two heads and the battery pack. Sheesh. Or 30 years of waiting to get these at a reasonable price on ebay.
But hey, there’s always the rental option.
