Our local dealer is now selling the X-series lights. It would be a better option to purchase this series now that they are available in our area. I would recommend this light to anyone that wants to buy quality studio lights.
The first set of lights I purchased from the local stores had a lot of issues. There was a ton of color to the light that varied with the settings. In order to make sure that the light was producing a consistent white light I had to use a neutral density filter. I could not stand this type of light anymore. It was not a great light and I could not get the color to remain consistent. After reading up on what other photographers were saying about the same issue I decided to do a little research to see if I would have the same problems. It turns out that many people were having the same issues with the color fluctuating as I did. I really liked the look of the lights and I was afraid that I would not like the way they lit my photos. I decided to purchase the White-Lightning X series. It was a lot of money to spend but I wanted the best quality lights that were going to be usable for years to come. The best part is these lights are now 5 years old and still going strong. I have had no problems with the color or the power to this day. In fact, I have now purchased more lights for a recent wedding because these lights continue to be a great performer. I have recommended these lights to several other photographers and have also showed them to my students. Once they saw the quality and the results that I was getting I were very impressed. I would highly recommend purchasing these lights. I have recommended them to many other photographers and would definitely purchase more of them. I have purchased 5 for my studio and my lighting kit for my camera for the last 2 years.
The White-Lightning X series has led the market for all mono lights in the size I need. It is the brightest light I have ever used. I bought one for my 3200 and two for my 6400. While I was at it I also ordered a cord extender to give me more length for my long and heavy weights. A very worthwhile investment. 827ec27edc
