      This is great for outdoor and traveling shoots. Light weight, powerful, versatile. A must have is a battery pack and transmitter.

      I bought one for an upcoming location shoot, when i received it, it didn't work. But, the staff at B&H helped troubleshoot it, and we determined it was defective. My Shoot was two days away, B&H overnight shipped it to me to. Saved the shoot. The new one came in and worked like a charm. Great value all around.
