Thanks,

The reason I ask is the YongNuo YN-622C – CANON part of this article:

http://flashhavoc.com …dio-trigger-alternatives/ (external link)

The author is connecting the FT-16 to YN622 and then he says:

"And a second FT-16 can then be hand held to remotely change the power levels of the Godox flashes"

Why is he connecting the FT-16 and YN622 in the first place if you can simply remote control hand held?

As I understand him he is connecting the FT-16 to the YN622 via the PC sync connection to allow the FT-16 to take advantage of the early fire signal provided by the 622 when it is operating above X-sync speed. The FT-16 is firing the flash but it is getting its high speed fire signal from the HSS enabled 622. Since this 622/FT16 pair is just setting somewhere off camera within radio range the second handheld FT16 merely provides a handy way to set remote power levels from the camera position. This setup allows multiple remote Godox units to be fired from the single 622/FT16 pair with high speed sync available. If you are only firing a single Godox/Cheetah unit you can get the same result by firing that unit from a 622 connected to the flash directly by a sync cable. In that case as well, the handheld FT-16 provides remote power level control but the flash is triggered by the 622.

The advantage of this setup over a Cells II is that the 622 system allows you to mix Canon or 3rd party EX compatible flash units with Godox/Cheetah units by linking the 622 to the FT-16. It is true that a Cells II is a simple way to obtain HSS for Godox/Cheetah flash equipment but it won't fire a Canon or Canon compatible flash. And if you want to have for example a flash mounted on camera for ETTL fill the 622 will provide that capability with its pass through hotshoe. You can't do that with a Cells II. I use this method to mix my 600EX-RT units with my AD-360. With HSS available if I need it.

I carry mine in a Pelican 1540. This picture is a little old, I've since replaced the Speed Pro bracket with the S brackets.

Nice Jason
Love seeing how people carry and store their gear

How the remote modeling light looks mounted inside a cheetah QS43 octa on low power

Long time lurker of this thread. Just awesome advice given out here and I built my kit mostly from it. Thanks to the special contributors here, especially Scott, Elv and Dave (tetrode)!

Bought a CL360 and V850 from Cheetah back in February. After using for a month I really liked these lights, but most of all the transmitters/receiver combination, so quick and easy to use, the best I have ever seen. (And I had 4 AB and still have 4 Nikon speedlights and PW TTL5 units) Then I bought 2 Wistro AD180 from HK, as Cheetah was out of them for such a long time. All the parts are inter-changeable between the Godox AD180 and CL360, (except the bulbs of course.)

At first I used a rolling Pelican 1510 case with dividers, but find that it is too bulky because I shoot a lot out in the boonies from my motor home or back of my Jeep. I had a Kata OC-82 attache case the speedlights were in and it is working out just fine, it is only 11” tall, 15" wide and 10" deep. No longer made, as Kata has been bought out, but you can find online at some stores, like Tri State Camera. It is a great case and holds 4 lights, batteries, all cables and some accessories. The reflectors, light modifiers and light stands are in a medium Hakauba tripod case.

Can’t say enough good things about these lights, they are just terrific, as was the advice I found here.

Thanks Scott,

It was you who got me interested in the Maxilite, even though I never used Elinchrom modifiers before. I shoot a lot in the high desert and the CL360 and fold up Godox 18" BD is pretty good for that setting, but seeing your Maxilite photos made me seek one out.

Below is my first attempts at using the Maxilite with the CL360 up at JT. Lots more to learn and fine tune, but I like the initial results this combo gives.

Didn't think the lighting section folks would mind, much better than looking at lighting case photos ;) but I changed the one photo out to be more SFW.

Shooting together would be great.

LOL I wore mine out and it now sags between the rollers do to much weight of all the stuff, but it still works great as a optional backpack.
