I have a shoot in Africa. Specifically Angola, Nigeria, and South Africa. I aware of the adapters I need. Does anyone have any recomendations on Voltage converters? My lighting is pretty light mostly 2 400 Divas and 2 650W fernels. I have looked at various voltage converters 240-110w, can anyone recomend a reliable brand? Can't have unexpected power problems on this shoot. Thanks for the help

You should be able to get 240V bulbs for the Fresnel. If memory serves that's the only major difference between the two. As for the Divas it's the ballast you have to worry about. They make the 400 as a "universal" ballast, e.g. 110/240, so try to get your hands on one of 'em if you aren't already using it. It should be of note that they also make specific 110 and 230 V only Divas... you should check on the ballast. Also, don't expect 240V. My shoot in Africa, Senegal/Gambia/Mauritania had voltages ranging all over the place. S Africa might be Ok though.
