| p.1 #2 · Old Norman studio set-up : anything I need to know before purchasing used kit? |
The three things that will be left after the interplanetary battles are Keith Richards, Hostess Twinkies and Norman strobes.
Yes all the heads will be different color temperature. Enough to make an impact on your pictures? Maybe, maybe not. It depends on the age of the flash tube, if it is a UV coated tube, the modifiers you use will have a minor effect but for the most part it won't make a huge difference in most situations, for most people.
When switching power output with the big black switch there are 2 schools of thought. The first is to turn off the main power and dump the flash. Wait 15 seconds and switch the power ratio/output, and turn it back on. The other way is to only switch power when the full recharged light is on. I forget which way Norman suggests. Either way at some time the pack will arc and make a SNAP! noise. usually not dangerous. And at another time you will blow up a capacitor, loud BANG! a few sparks and some smoke, hopefully not fire...
When you flip the power switch be quick about it, getting caught in the middle of the switch when the power is on is not good
