Now I would like to bring with me a more powerful flash unit since my little sb-700 can't do much outside in sunlight.
What is the most "portable" bigger flash unit?
"Portable" meaning NO external battery to put on the ground next to the unit aka cordless.
(Phottix Indra 500 is not an option as it seems to be using a battery on the side.)
I want to be able to fit a flash + camera and everything in 1 backpack, that's it. It should be able to bring everything while riding i scooter.
My only requirement for this strobe is to be at least 500 w since that seems to be necessary in sunshine but more is better because you want to add big soft boxes, umbrellas or other modifiers. I want to be able to shoot photographs like "Joey L" did in Ethiopia or similar to "Moshe Zusman" so you get an understanding.
On BH there are plenty of reviews and almost all say Profoto B1 it's "THE" flash to buy at the moment. The battery is built in and very user friendly, HSS compatible and 500 watts of power + it's from Sweden like myself.
There are a few videos of the Profoto B1 on youtube and it seems to perform flawlessly.
But where are all the competitors? Is there anything else out there to match or exceed this product?
I will probably buy the flash in April/May.
Hope there are people who have used the products I'm interested in.
