I plan to do on-location portraits of people and pets (interior & exterior) -- I have no studio. I'd like to have truly portable lighting and am convinced that strobes are the way to go -- no "hot" lights, more powerful & flexible than any type of speedlite, etc. I'm interested in the JTL Mobilights (not the Versalights), which are truly self-contained with battery packs (300 w/s is the most powerful). They even have their own radio transmitter/receiver system, like the PocketWizard, apparently. To me, their cordless advantage is significant ("Mrs. Jones, where is your nearest wall plug?...."Don't let little Johnny trip over the cord!"......"Do you have an outside plug on the patio?"......"Oops, I'm sorry my lights tripped your circuit breaker."...etc.) I've seen two laudatory full-length articles on the Mobilights (by Joe Farace in "Shutterbug," March '05; and by Bob Shell, January, '03). Yet I've found no other mentions in my research. Adorama and Porter's sell them, with the full line of JTL softboxes, grids, stands, etc. But local camera-store people sneer at them ("cheap," "made in China"). I've exhausted this forum, I believe, in searching for references to this system. So, what's wrong with JTL Mobilights? Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with them?
