Cool run­ning

NPhoto - - Test Team -

For con­stant lights, the dif­fer­ence be­tween hot halo­gen heads and cooler-run­ning LED heads is re­mark­able – and this can have an ef­fect on what mod­i­fiers you’re able to use (see 6, be­low).

Re­cy­cle time

Un­like with con­stant lights, you have to wait for a flash head to re­cy­cle af­ter fir­ing be­fore it’s ready to fire again. How­ever, the wait­ing time is usu­ally less than a cou­ple of sec­onds, even af­ter a full-power flash.

Fire haz­ard!

You may not be able to use mod­i­fiers like um­brel­las, soft­boxes, snoots and hon­ey­combs with some halo­gen con­stant lights, as the heat can cause them to melt or catch fire.
