    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great light..a ton of power..awesome out I bought this product after debating between this and the quantum. I decided to get this because I own other Excaliber monolights and they are workhorse lights without the price. On the back, the light output is determined by a rocker switch that you can set to full power, half power or quarter power. yes, it would be nice to have a slider switch like the other excaliber or quantum, however for the price it is not a deal breaker and i usually just have it on quarter power or sometimes half. I used full power once because there was NO other light source..but I did it as a test. I still had a ton of power at 100 ISO in a dark room. Why I wanted this unit was because I can use it as a unit powered by AC or DC. In both cases it performs gerat - no difference between the two. It just allows me to be more versatile. When in the DC mode, the modeling light does not come on so as to conserve power. The only thing I wish was a little better was the part that connect to a stand. It works fine, I just wish it were made of metal and not plastic. but, I have no concerns about it breaking or anything. It is blue - no color choice there. At first I thought it was a bummer. However, I can quickly tell it apart from the other monolights just by color so it turned into a plus. If you own another excaliber monilight and bought the transmitter kit that works with it that is based off of AC power, you are going to need a different set for the DC power. BH's website is wrong as of this writing. I had to call and confirm this and then order a second set. So that was a bummer. I bought this as part of the BH kit with the battery pack. With the battery pack you can take well over 100 full power pics and on quarter it's about 300 or so. I lost count. I did use it to shoot with at my last wedding and I was able to do all of the formals, as well as cake cutting, toasts, etc shots during the reception. The battery pack is a little heavy but I use clamps to hold it on the stand so I am free of any cords. The kit comes with a stand as well as a reflector. Just use a shoot through umbrella or a softbox and the pics are great. Overall, a great price. The next thing I am going to get is a second battery which is about 50 bucks to slide into the battery case. Well worth the money.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Support for this product. I bought this kit and I have owned it for not even a year. I've used this system at three weddings and the dc function stopped working during my third wedding. The AC port however does still work. There is almost absolutely no support for this product. The manufacturer has no way of repairing this light nor does B&H. I've scoured the internet for companies that can and I have had absolutely no luck. I've also tried to buy a new charger and DC cable for the battery itself and was not able to do so through either place. B&H sells a product that they can't supply additional parts for. I feel that this should be a disclaimer when buying this poor product. When it did work I was pleased with the results that came from the system. I've assisted another photographer who has a Lumedyne system and while yes the cost is about $1600.00 more than this product you should save yourself the money and trouble and buy a quality product like a Lumedyne system. The results from that system are impeccable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Right size and power Needed a small AC/DC light strobe for economy wedding assignments so I purchased the Excaliber 3200 AC/DC unit. The customer wanted a few wedding photos at the baseball diamond where they met and I wanted something light and economical. Well it was in the 90's so no baseball diamond, but in the church, one 3200, softbox and an oversize lightstand did the trick. Would be nice to have more than 3 settings, but at the price, and with the results, I'll live with it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timely response I was on a shoot out in Nevada and suddenly needed a replacement strobe. B&H overnighted me the Excalibur 3200 and pretty much saved the day. It was a high profile shoot that was actually videoed by a French documentary crew. The replacement strobe saved the day and the shoot. I appreciate the quick response as well as the quality of the product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great first studio strobe This was a great upgrade for me from Halogen bulb studio lights. Fits my existing light stands. Not much to the instruction manual, but easy enough to figure out. Love the adjustable power for both strobe and modeling light. A great value for someone outfitting a first studio.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far, Wonderful Although I haven't had too much time to work with this light, the setup is very easy, the battery pack seems easy to work too. Will be taking this with me on an outdoor photo shoot...just know it will be my best friend in all those sunny and shady spots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Worth every penny. Quite pleased with my purchase. I have other lightstands that I used and they attached great/secure.
