Sorry, I just re-read my post and I didn't mean for that last line to sound like I was callin' ya cheap or poor... I meant that people who already spent $20K+ on their strobe won't go try and save a few dollars to get a third-party trigger when they would just get the matching OEM. Those people are either sponsored or have enough work that their lighting pays for itself in a few jobs usually. The rest of us just gotta wait until their packs get used heavily and we buy them beat up...Heh Doc thank you for the detailed info. That puts my mind at rest on this subject.
The Bron stuff is nice though in that it's all matched and you can use a computer/tablet to control your lighting setup between multiple packs/heads/monos from one location, save the setup, and reload it at will. I think Profoto has the same concepts too.
