For basketball season this year I'll still be shooting speedlights using speedcycler on a Multimax. Maybe next year I can get 4 of these for the season.

Nah, I used them last year on SpeedCycle. I shoot max 3 photos and I slow down to 8fps typically. I don't want to send anyone into an epileptic seizure. LOL

->> We received confirmation today that Dynalight is sending a rep to the Sports Shooter Academy Open House to show off their full line of lighting gear AND demo their new Baja-B4 monolights (that are all the rage elsewhere on the ss.com message board).

So if you are in Southern California, you can get a hand-on look at this exciting new strobe from Dnyalight.

The Sports Shooter Academy Open House is Nov. 5 in Costa Mesa, CA. For more details on this COOL event:

->> Patrick,

Any plans for HSS with these? That would be the ultimate strobe.

I heard rumors of Profoto coming out with something soon on that front.

->> I bought a pair of these. So far, I'm pretty impressed. http://regensburgerphotography.com/dynalite-baja-b4-sports/

They are well made and seem to do the job as advertised. One drawback is the battery charges inside the strobe head so if you need to recharge this is somewhat inconvenient. Otherwise, I like the strobes a lot.

->> I have been using the Baja's for several months now and I love them. Not only are they fast and, to me they seem more powerful than 400 ws, but the size and weight along with the ability to control all your units from the remote on your camera make them a joy to work with. I am looking forward to the HSS with great anticipation.
