Well, the biggest difference is one has a fan and the other doesn't..... (yes, I'm being a smart-ass).

One of the big considerations is location shooting. If you're in a closed studio with AC power -- then the fans are important because the lights are in a closed environment and there's power.

In a location environment with the fans going on battery -- they're going to suck the battery down. And on location it's possible that the lights will get more circulation.

And what do you plan on using with these heads? If you're on location and shooting with an umbrella or open -- then you may not need the fan. If you're using softboxes that obstruct circulation to the head, then you might need the fan.

I don't have a set of Dynalights (I wish) so I can't say from field experience if there are any problems with the non-fan cooled units.

if you're going to shoot with the modeling lights on, then you better get the fan cooled heads.

If you're going to make the investment, get fan-cooled. If you use softboxes, snoots, cinefoil, grids, etc., fan cooled is the best way to go in any brand of studio lights. The flash tubes and modeling bulbs last longer and you will not have heat damaged heads if you accidently overload it with gels or snoots.

If you want to purchase Dyna-lites, contact me personally and I'll get you the best price. Thanks, rg

Fan cooled units tend to take a bit longer to recycle because some power is going to the fans instead of all going to the capacitor. The bulbs will last longer in a fan cooled unit, modifiers like grids and snoots don't get as hot from the modeling light which means fewer burned fingers when you need to change something...and the units themselves are less likely to suffer from heat damage. I've had them with and without and I don't intend to buy then without again.
