    How many of you willing to invest studio strobe just for hobby ? If you got extra money to spend. Is it worth to get it for long run rather than just rent studio every time ?

    A number of users here do. And perhaps the right word isn't "invest".

    The only light worth buying is the sun if you have a place to store it.

    One day it'll burn out though... And it'll takes at least 15 minutes before we realised it was burnt out.

    I considered it, then someone pointed out that I might as well hire it, especially if I'm not going to use it often - just hire when I need to use - don't need to worry about storage and maintenance!

    I've gone down the strobist route instead
    It is the camera, not the photographer.
