Everywhere use. I doubt it will suffice in every case, but the majority of cases would be OK.
Setting up and breaking down lighting is a chore. I used to have a kit of Balcar 1200Ws packs with monopods and heads all connected.. brilliant concept.. carry in, plug in, shoot. Profoto had a similar arrangement. With this I want to carry to location, turn on, shoot. If the single head and modifier are not sufficient then I can easily carry a couple more of either the T5d-R's or X5d-R's in their shoulder bag or cases as well, or if this works out OK, I'll create a kit all ready-built and ready to go.
In the last week I've been on Windfarms, in Engineering works, Prisons and shooting corporate portraits.. the process of open the stand, attach the clamp, fit the pack, connect the head and fit the cable can become really monotonous several times over and time consuming.
I have a gazillion stands already, but whilst considering these options I'm also considering how to do a DIY job on a stand using a pole spring from the poles of a frame tent. There only needs to be a closing pressure and a bottom stop on the stand to make it work..
S&H to the UK for these stands is almost as much as the stands themselves..
