Flexible and easy to use, the Starflash 650 has a durable build. I've used this light, in conjunction with a Starflash 300, to light college basketball games. The 650 has a built-in fan and stays cool, even under intensive use. The modeling light is 250 watts, rather more powerful than the bulbs on many other lights. The flash is well-balanced and natural. The one fault I found was the relatively slow rate of recharge at full powerâ€”about 3-5 seconds. This probably won't be an issue in most cases, but it's something to be aware of.
