    get some personal hands-on experience using the strobes before buying will greatly assist you in your future decision to buy. buying based solely on others' experience is not advisable.

    lol. hands on.. i won't consider i've played before it seriously. but it seems like the effects are way better than flashes. they do overcome ambient light(because they're powerful) in outdoors dun they?

    i dunno what's the market prices like.. elins seem to have an offer going for 2k? like how does 400watt and 800watt differ? what do the stops mean? some say they have 5 stops. me read til blur blur..

    it is now clear that hands-on experience is beneficial, especially in your case.
