    Comments about Interfit Stellar XD Monolight - 600 Watt/Seconds (120VAC):

    Big for a 600ws monolight, the main body is 12 inches long not including the handle. OTOH, feels very solid with metal where a lot of the Chinese strobes use plastic which probably accounts for some of it's heftiness. The body is coated in a rubberized paint. The downside of that is that it shows any oils that might be on your hands.

    You can move the mount point along the whole body length which is nice for counter balancing larger light modifiers.

    Comes with a nice flash cover and a better than typical reflector, but the reflector bell isn't a standard size and my grids wouldn't fit (no great surprise).

    Don't put too much faith in the controls as far as numbers matching stops. The flash is adjustable between values of 6 and 2. 6 to 5, 5 to 4, 4 to 3 are roughly whole stops, but 3 to 2 is more like 2/3 of a stop. Not uncommon for other value line strobes. Just be aware this puts out a lot of light even dialed down. Umbrellas should be fine, but more efficient light controls or smaller softboxes, may throw more light than you want for a single portrait. The modeling light is also adjustable in the 6-2 range, and then goes one more setting to 0.0 to disable.

    The digital control is a little weird. You cycle through various modes; Flash, model light, flash/model (tracking), beep and photocell. The problem is that it doesn't stick in the mode, the timeout brings you to the main screen. If you're using track, it means you first have to cycle through 2 other modes every time you want to adjust. It remembers everything but the beep setting between power cycles, so I have to assume that's intentional.

    Having said all that, I'm pretty happy and may buy another. I took a star for the weight and control oddity, but you're getting a lot of bang for your buck and I think you'd have to spend a lot more to get a better light.

      I bought the 600w to add to the 300w lights I have. Very easy to use and great lighting!
