Hi, I didn't see this listed on the product pages - what are the flash duration specs for both lights at less than full power? I.e. does flash duration increase like the analog AlienBees (less action freezing ability) or decrease, like the Einstein? I didn't see anything mentioned about the units being IGBT controlled like the Einstein, so it has got me wondering.

The DigiBees are voltage controlled lights. Like all voltage controlled lights, they will have thier shortest flash duration at full, and longer flash durations at reduced settings. I am not sure if we have specific durations for various settings, but the behavior will be similar to the AlienBees and WhiteLightning line. Similarly, the color temperature will shift among various power levels (about 70-80K per stop), as with any voltage controlled light.

Color, output, and duration will all be consistent, shot to shot at a given power level, provided the light has had time to recycle.
