Okay,
I've read posts far and wide about alien bees. it seems there are two types of photographers at the moment. those who have bees and those who are wanting/hoping/holdingupliquorstores to get them.
So I just want to ask everyone who has even one bee.

What color did you get?

Though I definately fall in the last catagory, I think I'm partial to the Martian Pink because I used to have a Fender Amp the same color.

I've got one pink and two white. I took a bit of guff in another thread for owning a pink one, but I don't want to be like everybody else.

If you have to hold up a liquor store to get Alien Bees, then you might as well write off Hensels or ProFotos which are the best lights out there right now. For what you would pay for entire Alen Bee kit you couldn't buy one Hensel power pack.

Hahahaha! Funny guy! You forgot about us photogs that have no interest in bees. I'm just not a huge monolight fan, give me a pack and head any day. I shoot Novatrons and Balcar and tend to think that "effective watt-seconds" are kid of amusing (according to bees' calculations, my sunpak 120J should have around 500 effective-watt-sec! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]) Whew, that was a good laugh.

I just have the one, and I just got it 3 days ago. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I am a little conservative I guess...I went for a BLACK B800, with the intention that I would use a different color if I ended up with different powered bees in the future. i.e.: The 800's would be black, the 1600's Yellow, and the 400's pink (pink because they are weak little girls compared to the others) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I dunno, I'm partial to my Elinchrom's. But if I were buying new today (or soon) I'd want to take a look at the new Hensel Pro Plus' with the built in radio receivers.

Well I have used both Novatrons and Bees extensively. I've had the same Novatron pack since the late 70's and it still works like a charm along with the four heads that I got at the same time. But I can tell you this. The Bees do give more watt seconds by about double over the same number of watt seconds on the Novatrons. Don't ask me why, that is just what I observe.
Cheers,
