I am laying off buying camera gear in lieu of revamping my lighting and studio systems. At this point, minor incremental improvement in the digital capture IQ is horrifyingly expensive, where major upgrades in lighting tools will yeild far greater visual improvements and capability at less cost.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it
I've torn into the studio and off-loaded a dump truck worth of junk, prints and darkroom gear to free up space to better organize the studio and storage room. OMG, I cannot believe how many bags I've accumulated ... some, like a big lens back-pack and a Pelican roller, are unused! It's a wonder that the wifey did get me featured on the TV program "Horders"
As room became available, I added a Hensel 1200 Porty L Kit, second Porty head, Profoto D1 Air 500 set, second Profoto AIR transceiver and one dumb AIR receiver for my D4 2400 box. The Hensel has three different radio systems inside, so Profoto AIR sender at camera can control and trigger both the Hensel Porty and D1 500 AIRs on separate channels = Full on-camera control of Hensel and Profto D1 AIR at the same time.
Added the frosted glass bulb type covers and 10º grid to the D1 heads, and plan to get the Porty Mains adapter to use it in studio when desired. Also looking to get two Paul C. Buff Vagabond Mini Liths for remote work with the D1 AIRs in concert with the Hensel Porty L.
I will be selling off some choice lighting items in the days/weeks to come. Profoto Compact and Compact Rs (Pocket-Wizard trigger inside), a set of UNUSED Profoto Compact Tungsten continuous lights (video), 2 Hensel 500w/s Integra Plus radio controlled mono heads (trigger and levels control!) ... and a load of bits and pieces. PM me if you want a jump on any of this.
Really hard work tearing apart a studio, storage, darkroom and throwing away all this stuff ... wish I had that money back ... but that would have required a crystal ball to see the future.
