You'll likely need something with a little higher amp rating than the power pack you have linked. 600W at 110V is only about 5.5A. The peak rating for the 110 VAC outlets is 700w, which translates to about 7A. You probably need about twice to three times that much peak power capacity to tolerate the peak current required by the light at the start of each ...

From FAQ at http://www.paulcbuff.com/faq.php Q. What is the average current draw of Paul C. Buff™ flash units? A: Einstein™ units draw an average current of 5 amps during recycle and AlienBees™ and White Lightning™ flash units draw an average current of 6 amps. This means that if a light were fired every time it recycled, the average current draw would be ...

Any basic radio trigger will work for this setup. The only issue may be the sync voltage of your monolight. Most radio triggers will not work correctly if the voltage is too high. Another option is to have all your monolights run as optical slaves and trigger them all by firing a speedlight on your camera at the ceiling (or towards one of the flash heads if ...

Generally speaking, any flash radio trigger that works as a transmitter with the XPro1 hotshoe, and that has a receiver you can plug into the 6.3mm socket on the monolight. The main thing to look for with manual radio triggers with mirrorless cameras is whether you can get the on-camera unit to be a transmitter. The majority of the manual radio triggers out ...

Is there a meaningful difference between monolight and studio strobe, or is this just an example of a couple of product lines overlapping? The terminology is similar, but not identical. In common usage, strobe most typically means a monolight, just as "flash" most typically means a speedlight. But a strobe or flash is any light that fires a brief burst of ...

There's no difference nor specific meaning in the usage of the terms. These are basically the same thing. Like saying car or automobile, same meaning. However, to me, the term Strobe means a very rapidly flashing continuing light (like seen in some dance halls), which these are NOT. And Flash means a single flash for photography, which these ARE, but some ...

The main issues might be how the studio strobes are set up with the transceivers you say you are using. The studio strobes also have an optical slave mode, so they should be out of that if you are using the radio triggers. And you probably also need to check that the transceivers are set on the same group as the on-camera transmitter, that all the batteries ...

If sunlight makes you use f/11 at maximum sync speed, then you do need enough flash power to use f/11. The Metz 64 (and other similarly powered speedlights, meaning regular but high end speedlights) will be about 75 watt seconds at maximum power, and can compare to studio lights as about 75 WS (at maximum power). Doubling power (like to 150 WS) is +1 EV ...

Lighting depends on a wide range of factors including: How close can you place your light to your subject? Light becomes exponentially less bright (1/distance^2) the further the source is from the subject. What types of modifiers are you going to be using? Different modifiers will diffuse or scatter different amounts of light. Some modifiers may result in ...

The PC sync ports on a YN-622C are output-only, not input. They are solely to be used to hook a flash up to a receiver 622 unit, NOT to be used as an output signal from a camera hotshoe. If you want to sync over a PC cable, you have to get a hotshoe-to-PC adapter for your camera, and then cable the hotshoe to the flash's PC port. To use YN-622C units with ...

All studio strobes are compatible with YN-622C's. YN-622C's are overkill though because the studio strobes will not be able to take full advantage of the ETTL and HSS features. You really just need a simple radio trigger. Yes, you may be using them improperly. To make the YN-622C's work with your 60D and strobes you just need to mount one YN-622C in the ...
