Any reason the get the ELC 125 vs the ELC 500? I will use them for in-studio stuff.
Asked by: Michael
Depends on the size of your sets, ELC 125 is compact and it's powerful enough for shooting single-person portraits, small subject tabletop stills or macro works in home studios. If you shoot in a larger area, with a smaller aperture like f/11 or f/16, ELC 500 is much more flexible.
