Great light!

Comments about Norman ML400R 400 Watt/Second Monolight, Radio Slave (120V):

I have owned 2 of these since 2005 and have not replaced the flash tubes yet. I have never had the pocket wizards fail. They use all the same accessories as Photogenic. All metal durable body. Easy to use and see how many watt seconds you are using. I have used these for hyper sync as well (not high speed sync). Hyper sync is long flash duration not short. Work perfectly.
