I really liked the tip I got from Prophotolife.com that basically said the 200s will serve most, if not all of your needs for portrait and small group photos. Then, if you need to expand, you can always add a 400 and use the 200s as backup.

i ordered 3-200w/s and think that will be enough light from my 30x20 studio. I'm excited to see if there if will be enough power to overpower the sun outside.

I have two Calumet Genesis 200ws lights. I have a small indoor studio 12'x12' with 10' high ceilings. I felt that was all I needed is the two 200ws. However due to the demand of High Key studio images I think I could have stepped up to the 400ws or higher.

Prophotolife is actually one of the reason's I bought mine...didn't see the recommendation about the wattage, but I saw him using them a lot, even when he had a studio full of other gear, so that was definitely a deciding factor.

I went with the 400's initially because of the price. If I needed more power, it was there, else just turn them down. I liked the option of having the power there just in case it was needed. However, up until this point, have not needed the extra power ;)

I have a couple of 200's and they're more than adequate for most shoots.
