    I personally like more power for my main light then that. I have a self contained photogenic 2400 for my main and 1200 for my fill. You dont need that much power in all situations but I find that its a worth while investment for the flexibility you will then have.

    I really enjoy the photogenic strobe lights. I would recomend them.

    I have the ab 800's and I find that they are more than enough. I was really impressed with the quality and solid build. No buyer's remorse here!

    Well...The Photogenic name is very tempting to me. And, I wonder if the output between the two really does differ by 80ws.

    Did you notice the Photogenics are not currently available? Can you wait a month or more is there's a snag?

    I have found a couple more sources for the photogenics that are right around the same price. That is who I'm leaning towards. My wife likes the ABs because of the colors.:D

    Thanks for the opinion.

    I may have talked myself into the AB's. Just back and forth opinions on the lower wattage photogenics. Hard to find anything bad from the people actually using AB's.
