I'm working on a lighting solution for my studio. All of the lights will be 100% stationary and I'm wondering if there's a way to get flashes that I can just plug into the wall instead of bothering with batteries all the time.
I've seen projects like this which I'm comfortable experimenting with, but the potential for failure at the wrong time is just too much for my needs. I want something that's reliable, recycles reasonably quickly ( < 4 seconds) and can be made to run off of AC without modding.
A full manual flash is fine, I don't need bells and whistles. I'm planning to set these flashes to a certain setting and forgetting about them.
