Re: rading my Hedlers for Kino Flo by michele princigalli 15 years ago Thanks for the reply, I will definitely give them a try. I hope I can find some Kino Flo for rent. Hedler are excellent for what they do, at least the new ones I have, but I haven't tried many others.

Why upgrade? by Jim Lawrence 15 years ago I have a 17" G4 laptop running OSX 3.8. Everything works great (inculding Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, etc.) Is there any real reason to upgrade to the new OSX operating system and risk all the glit
