The reason I use the S1 in my kit is they allow me to create versatile looks, The S1 is really compact which makes it great for on location shoots. In the type of work that I produce i'm quite often in situations where i'm working with less then ideal ambient light whether its artificial or natural, by introducing the S1 into those situations I am then taking charge of those scenarios and I am able to create a directional light that lets achieve the looks that I am aiming for.
