Is the Godox SK400II a good choice if I use it as a continuous light. No. Because it's a studio strobe, and cannot put out continuous light. Does it have more power than a Godox SL150? Yes, quite a bit. This Petapixel article did measurements to attempt to equate Godox's strobes with their continuous video lights. Another Godox 400 Ws strobe (the AD400 ...

No speedlight uses a 6.5mm connector. So, I assume a studio strobe/monolight is being used, here. You've probably got the cable plugged ...

This an old thread, but probably worth updating to take improvements in equipment. I've been shooting classical concerts since the 1970s - using 35mm SLRs in rehearsals and Mamiya TLR for concerts and recording sessions. I currently shoot about 200 concerts, rehearsals and other music events a year. Many choices of equipment and viewpoint are driven by the ...
