Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our Exposed! listings (if available), usually marked with a green badge. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.

The Alien Bees B800 Flash Unit
The AlienBees B800 is a powerful, self-contained (monolight) studio flash unit, producing 320 true wattseconds of power that is adjustable over a stepless five f-stop range.Each unit contains a built-in cooling fan and a 150-watt modeling lamp that recycles to full power in just one second. The units can be triggered as optical slaves (firing when triggered by an on-camera flash) or by the included 15-foot PC Sync cord. They are individually AC powered from normal household current, so no central power source is needed, allowing maximum flexibility for set up. Each unit includes a built-in, 7-inch reflector.
The AlienBees B800 is a workhorse light unit that’s great when you want to rent more than 2 units or create your own lighting set up. A low cost light to rent and the most varied collection of modifiers available, the AlienBees B800 is my go-to light when I have a complicated lighting situation, but want a no nonsense lighting solution. The AlienBees lack the Einstein E640’s fancy LCD and action/color modes. However there’s something about the quick, simple analog controls that I appreciate when I don’t want to fool with methodical digital menus.
