A&P wow it's alienbees but not really......

Discussion in 'Lifestyle' started by LowLikeWhoaF150, Aug 16, 2006.

  1. I was messing around on google and I found this site..

    http://www.white-lightning.com/22r.html

    I was looking at a beauty dish and I saw the price/purchase box and I thought "wow this looks just like alienbees website now that I think about it" Then I go to alienbees site and the same beauty dish is the same cost and the page looks just the same with the same pics and everything.

    Then I looked and noticed that they are both Paul C Bluff, Inc. :dunno:

    And I thought the Alienbees speedring was alienbees exclusive... Aparently not so..

    So it's my belief that alienbees and white lighting goodies are cross compatible? :dunno: :x:

    :rofl: I bought my alienbees in person...same building as white lightning
     
  14. for real?

    I wonder if there are any more Bluff Inc. businesses besides alienbees and whitelightning.

    I'm looking at it and the only difference I can see is the actual light units and they're probably not all that much different. Why is the trend to go more with Alienbees than white lightning?

    they are more expensive. buff is an old hippy dude who decided to make lights one day for photography. sometimes he hangs out around the shop, but not the day i was there :wtc:

    if it wasn't for photo forums AB wouldn't exist. they offer no real strength, other than price point

    if you want monoblocks, go with teh Calumet series, much better design and way more powerful
