Best strobe for getting started in product photography?

3 months 1 week ago #684333 by Paulina K
Just trying to make a buck with things as they are.  I'm going to try my luck at product photography.  Can you suggest a good strobe for under $600?  Best for the money please?  

Thank you!

You're going to need modifiers, too. And triggers.

I'm a Paul C Buff fan, and you could get two DigiBee 400s for $600, ro one DigiBee 800 and the triggers, and have money left over for a softbox or whatnot.

A powerful light that is worth your investment is flashpoint 320M 150 Watt AC/DC Monolight Strobe. It has Less than 1-second full power recycles, 5 stop range, proportional or full Power Modeling Lamp gives you the option to run off battery power or DC cable so you can use it wherever you shoot.
