    Hi,

    I'm in the process of buying some studio flash lights for use at home. I
    currently shoot an EOS30 and am torn between buying a 5600K system for use
    with film or a cheaper 3200K and using a 80a filter for film with the view
    to get a 20D when the price drops (and somewhere has them in stock!).

    How reliable is the colour rendition using 3200K lights and 80a filters?

    Also I want this kit for portrait/ glamour photos and was thinking of
    getting the Interfit CyberFlash heads to save space but am aware I need a
    unit for a hair light. If I were only to get 2 Cyberflash's would I be
    missing out not being able to attach a snoot?

    If I were to buy traditional flash units would the 150J or 300J Interfit
    lights be suitable for film cameras in a fairly small studio (large spare
    bedroom at home). All the courses I have been to used 500J+ units but the
    studios were a bit bigger. I understand for a Digital Camera one can use
    lower power units.

    Thanks for any help.

    Not sure what your budget is, but you might want to consider studio strobes.
    I have several and use them for everything. When I shoot glamour I will
    just use the modeling lights like "hotlights".

    Check out www.alienbees.com they have some great outfits. You can also
    check ebay for the bees and also whitelighting strobes. If you have any
    questions, let me know.

    My budget is less than £500 ideally around £400. The equipment must be
    avaliable in the UK and unfortunatly thoses Bees are US.
