DynaLite is done

22 January 2020 - 08:35 PM

For years, DynaLight was the go-to strobe for arena shooting. I had the privilege of hooking up to a client's lights a couple of times. It was a long time ago when I was doing that sort of thing. They were wired and I had to get local engineer to flip a breaker. 

 They are closed now. I will paste the info.

 

DynaLite Inc.—a trusted professional lighting brand that has been around for over 50 years—has shut down. In a statement posted to the company’s website, CEO Peter Poremba announced that the company “has filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy and has closed it doors.”

The statement is short and anything-but-sweet.

“It is with sincere regret and a heavy heart that I announce that Dynalite Inc. has filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy and has closed it doors,” writes Poremba from Union, NJ. “For over 50 years, DynaLite has been providing lighting solutions for photographers […] Unfortunately, due to the current decline in the photography market, we have found it difficult to remain competitive.”

Though Poremba blames “the current decline in the photography market,” the reality might lie closer to “the current rise of affordable monolights” from companies like Godox/Flashpoint. The market is more crowded than ever, and DynaLite’s most successful and lucrative niche—arena sports photography—has been shrinking as the low-light capabilities of high-speed sports cameras has steadily improved.


Santa knew exactly what I wanted

I am over needing a micro lens from Nikon. But, Santa left a 1.4 TC for my use. That was nice of him.

There are so many HS basketball tournaments going on. I was told that there is a maximum number of games teams can play, but tournament games do not count. My boss owns eleven papers so I get to shoot a lot of those games. Then I get to process all the games, then post them to a couple of places. Happy New Year everyone. 


Things get tough down low

Basketball is a non-contact sport, right?
