          Comments about Norman Monolight - 400 Watt/Seconds (120V):

          I use for portraits in studio, weddings and events on location. Have been using for almost 5 years now and have never had 1 issue with either. Wish I had 2 more. With my light meter I can change levels in 2 seconds with the easy readout and controls.

                Comments about Norman Monolight - 400 Watt/Seconds (120V):

                very versatile. perfect strobe for a simple one-light portrait, down to 13 wps -- but powerful enought to light a large group, up to 400 wps. have to be careful where you're standing at times, though, for it to respond to a pocketwizard transmitter, which of course can be a problem. otherwise, a great, reliable light. love the 60-inch norman octagonal softbox to use with it.
