I am looking for serious lighting solutions. So I am planning
to purchase studio flashes. The choice here is a bit limited.
Any user reviews??

1. Prolinca
2. Elichrom
3. Electra
4. Bowens
5. ???

Monolights or powerpacks versions?? Recommendations??

I use Bowens and I like it! (Hey they are British.)

Choosing light system is like choosing camera system, after you buy the light, you still need to buy the various accessories. And different system has different accessories and they are not compatible to other systems.

You mean like Canon vs Nikon?

Which of these systems provide the best bodies (lights) and which has the best lenses (attachments/acessories) versus costs?

How about resale value (like L lenses versus 3rd party)?

I sense that the passion with these lights do not command the same type of feelings unlike the Canon vs Nikon thingy

Oh, if you ask me, I always say "get the Bowens". They are the equivalent of Nikon in my mind.
- best body
- best accessories
- not necessary best in cost
