I use a the Sony HVL-LBP light which looks similar to the Comer and the Sony uses the NP-F970 battery which I hope is compatible with the Comer. Can anyone confirm that the NP-F970 battery will work with the Comer.

Cheers

This is a strange behaviour...
Could someone confirm or deny, please?!!

This full power flash at switching on worries me (not to mention it's not welcome when I decide to add light without interrupting the shoot)...

Piotr,

My Comer 1800 also starts brighter for half a second then dims down when you turn it on.

Certainly wouldn't say it starts at full strength though, more like 25% of power hits in before it dims down.

As you say, it is for about half a second, and to be honest, even after about 100 weddings I've never noticed that before I checked it out for you.

Cheers,

Vaughan
