Does anyone have any thoughts on Speedotron vs Novatron. I am thinking of investing in more lighting equipment and one of my partners is trying to steer me towards Speedotron, while I am thinking of expanding my Novatron set. He shall remain nameless, but I welcome his thoughts on the subject also. Currently, I have a Novatron 334 powerpack and 2 heads. I know that Speedotron probably has more accessories, but I still like my Novatrons and think I can still go a long way with them. Lemme know what y'all think.

If you already have Novatrons then you already know how to use them and it will probably be less costly to just stay with what you know. The Novatrons are real workhorses and they last and last (I've had mine since the late 70's and they still work like champs). Consider getting bare heads for additional heads as they work better in softboxes. I also like having a 1/2 stop toggle switch on each head.
Cheers,
rfs
