Just picked up some Alien Bees today
 
I just bought 2 800 lites and 2 soft boxes to travel with. I must say the girl on the phone "Carla" could have sold me everything. She was very nice and had a voice that you could fall in love with. I bought the 30 x 60 softbox and the 47" Octaboxe . I can't wait to test them out next week. What I like about them is they don't beep. I plan on doing a few shoots when I can in hotel suites and this will keep the noise down.

Should I get a smaller softbox also ?

I have 2 B800s as well, but I have the 24x36 softbox and I love this setup. I picked up a boom for the softbox earlier this month. I'm having a ball with my Bees! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Here's a couple I did with mine. I hope you have as much fun with yours.

Cool...

I recently got 3 800's with 10" stands, the 48" silver/white bounce umbrella, a 48" white/Black umbrella, 20 degree grid, barn doors, hot shoe adapter, a bag to carry the stands and umbrellas, and some gels.

I haven't had a chance to use them yet for a shoot, but hopefully will soon.

I really like the way they work and how easy it is to set them up.
