Hello just wondering what your thoughts were on this strobe (Flashpoint) that is battery powered and similar to the more expensive ProFoto’s
Link is below;
Has anyone used them before? Primarily looking for strobes that can be used in the studio (for product photography) and on location when I do car photography. At this point I have been working with LED’s and I’m now ready to move to strobes.
Another option I’m considering is this Bowens 500r’s kit with optional Travelpak
I would love to get the ProFoto’s but at this time there not in my price range.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Both light are good, but one is battery-powered and another is not.
What do you need more? You need to decide, we won;t help you here:-)
I never buy a battery powered lights because I shoot at studio only. If it would be opposite, I’ll be buying battery-powered;-)

Hello Alex and thank you for your response. I usually get an email when someone responded. Lucky I checked today. With automotive photography you can shoot both in a studio or out in the environment, it just depends on what the client is lookng for. This is why I’m thinking of maybe the Flashpoint, I just wasn’t sure if they were a good brand as I had never heard of them before. But you’re right I need to figure out where I will be shooting most and what :D in order to make the final pick as I’m hoping to get some Jewellery and cosmetic clients too and that work would be mostly done in the studio. Thanks again Alex.
