I happen to be looking at the Einsteins. But first I am going to try to use Hyper sync with a PocketWizard mini tt1 I got cheap with my current strobes.

I think one of these at half power with a short burst at 320 ws would still outperform any HSS., especially with a narrow focus reflector.


This IGBT CONTROL only applies to their Einstein units, not the others.

Ok I got my problem fixed I picked up a Pocket Wizard mini TT1 to fire my pocket wizards Plus X. Reprogramed the Hyper sync to fit my 1D I can now fire at 1/1000 sec with no darkness top or bottom of photo. Thank you all that have commented on my post.
