    I just returned a profoto acute ring flash because i heard alien bees are coming out with a ring flash. I have other equipment, but their stuff is really very well made, cheap, light, battery pack..all in all .. sweet.

    Is there anyway I can get you guys to have a look at our website, ftvstudio.com. Its a model community and auto flash website generator on upload..but most importantly..you can upload RAW!

    I had a lot of trouble making people cd's so they could pick their favorite photos… too many steps, so i made this.
