    I don't see any other reason why someone would get so much camera gear for midlife crisis.

    My midlife crisis was my Shelby Cobra replica. This is a money making venture.

    I used to have a pair of those Powerlights. They don't suck. I suspect that Alien Bees were reverse engineered from them. :rofl:

    I've only taken one "real" shot with my new gear. This shot was taken with my small sunpack 383 strobes.

    Didn't use them much, had other uses for the money, wanted something more portable, etc.

    I'm still trying to decide on lights to use on location. I'm leaning toward Elinchrom Ranger RX battery powered pack/head though.

    I use to shoot in a commercial studio 35 years ago but I haven't shot stills for a living since then. I shoot video for a living now. I'm having to re-learn strobe work.

    I've owned an old Minolta film camera for many years but I haven't used it much in the last 20 years. I was never all that pleased with the quality of the lenses.

    Judging from all these "which lens" posts, I don't think a n00b with deep pockets could have even figured out how to buy all this jealousy inducing gear.
