I still have a pair of Photogenics (from way back when) down in the basement somewhere. Thanks for reminding me. As a company, Photogenic makes some decent stuff. They're good value for the money, but not something I'd recommend for shooting all day every day. They're a little weak in the accessories department too. I don't have direct experience with their newer stuff, but in days gone by they were a little less powerful than comparably-rated competitors. I was never real crazy about the quality of light emitted by the integrated reflector either, but if you're going to use umbrellas or softboxes then it won't matter. Also, don't believe the claim that there's no color temperature fluctuation. They don't shift much, but they do shift.

On the plus side, they were always very consistent from an output standpoint at low power. Some of their new models have PocketWizard receivers built into them, which is really nice. Replacement bulbs are comparatively inexpensive.
