Metz's off-camera system is a bit confusing ... and it isn't easy to figure out how to mount them on stands with umbrellas.

    Anything to keep from spending more money right now.

    Marc, this is what you are looking for, cheap and easy solution.

    Sorry I can't find it for you on B&H.

    the heads that come with the profoto 600B are junk--the mounting hinge are very poorly designed and break. (speaking from first hand experience with three of them). 7B's are the unit mostly used in NYC these days on pro shoots---easy to rent and fairly dependable. and yes, if you stick them in a pond they will fry very nicely.
