The difference between “Otherlite” and Dynalite” is the difference between a lightning bug and lightning (with apologies to Mark Twain). I’ve been using Dynalites for 20 years, ever since my first days in NYC as an assistant.
The main reason I’ve stayed with them, other than their reliability and size, is those 2040 flash heads. Nothing I’ve found has come close to the evenness of light that comes out of the 2040s. It’s the even light, the lack of a hot spot, that makes them such great heads for light banks, or to use directly at the subject. It’s the closest I’ve experience to my perfect light source, the sun!
