I know I asked along similar lines before with uncertain budget and purchase but now I've decided to commit to the following lighting setup: 1 x Manfrotto 420B Combi Boom Stand with Sandbag - Black 2 x Lastolite Lumen8 Pneumatic Lighting Stand 1 x Lastolite Ezybox II Square Medium - 60cm 1 x Lastolite Ezybox II Square Large - 90cm 2 x Lastolite Ezybox II Speedlight Bracket That gives me two stands and two soft boxes for regular shooting as well as the option to use a box and the boom for some overhead lighting and to bring the light lower than the stands can go for lower angle shots. I've had a look at similar priced light kits which can even go up to 3 lights (when I include a new speedlite with the above setup) with stands and boxes/umbrellas. However whilst they do offer more power and more lights it slaves me to requiring a mains power source or heavier (and thus more expense) batteries. Ok for indoors, but a nightmare for outdoor. Power for cost speedlites are more expensive; same again on refresh and typically less shots before over heating is a concern. About the only gain is size, weight, mobility with regard to power and the duration of the flash light itself (typically only a concern for high speed photography). I plan to use 600EX-RT flash units, whilst not cheap they negate the need to invest in a separate wireless setup - that keeps complexity down (less batteries/cables/items in the field) and negates the need to invest in a separate wireless setup (cheap units are ok and wouldn't break the bank whilst pocketwizard are a fairly expensive option). So that's the plan and the reasoning, anyone got any thoughts or suggestions on the reasoning or upon alternative products to consider?
