    This week, a local photography studio that is going out of business held an open house to sell off a ton of gear they had amassed. I went up there to take a look, and ended up getting all of the following for $135.

    3 x Quantum QB1+ Battery Packs w/ Charger
    2 x Nikon SB-28 Flash Units
    1 x Vivitar 283 Flash Unit
    1 x Cable to use SB-28 with QB1+
    1 x Cable to use 283 with QB1+
    1 x Majestic 1001 Gearhead w/ 6x7" Plate (Couldn't believe it when I checked B&H for pricing!)
    1 x Majestic Tripod Legs w/ Pressurized Shaft

    So stoked! Side Note: For those who are interested, I shot last night with Cactus V4 triggers on one of the SB-28's, and they worked extremely well!

    GREAT deal, err, I mean what a steal! I love the Quantum Battery 1--I have one I bought 25 years ago, and it still works pretty well--on its original cells!
    My Quantum Turbo conked out 16, 17 years ago. You got some great stuff for a steal of a price.

    Thanks, guys! I took one of the SB-28's out for a spin last night. Here are some of the results. Definitely going to take some time and practice!
