Yes, I have heard some of the limitations of CLS, e.g. infrared line-of-sight, and the one you stated. So I probaly still would like to keep an SC-29, an an eventual backup, since I just recently became aware of my lighting needs, and I definitely am excited about trying CLS.

On B&H online, I recently came across light stands at 9 feet. I once almost knocked down a light stand, by accident, that was about 13 feet. With a light stand this high, it may need a neon sign to ward off people like me, hehe. I can still see the nervous glare I got from that photographer!

Thanks, LuckyPhoto, for your comments.
