The Paul C Buff AlienBees 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.

Corey's Take

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.
