I've got Profoto AcuteB2 Airs and the new B1's as my mobile battery lights and have been very happy with the kit up to now but I long after a higher power pack. I've seen the info on the net about the ProB4 and how wonderful it is so I attended a photo show here in the UK this week to have a look in person at the Profoto stand.
Shock horror(!) that ProB4 is supposed to be location lighting! Its only 1000Ws and (I appreciate its made like a tank) is way too large and heavy for outside the studio.
SO........ while I was discussing Profoto parabolic's with a dealer he quietly told me to walk over to the Bron stand and their (better) offerings. True to his word, the Bron Para's are worlds better than the Profoto Giants but it was there I spied the unknown (to me) Move 1200 pack.
Apart from my dislike for pressy power buttons (but all Bron packs seem to have these and all age well) this seem like a dream come true for me:
More powerful, smaller and lighter pack, smaller and lighter head, LED daylight modelling lights (250W tungsten equivalent), better colour stability, faster flash duration over higher power, cheaper and in kit form comes with everything.
Really tempeted to order one and if I'm as impressed as I think I am then I might jump ship and get a few of these Bron packs.
So, apart from the fact the if like me you know very little about Broncolour then please, tell me what is the catch with these beauties and why are they not stomping all over Profoto's domination in this market.
