What big modifiers are people using with their Rovelights? Last year I used 47" shoot through umbrellas but this year I was thinking about the 48" Buff foldable octabox.

Love the light from the CheetahStand RB-120, super soft. Will add the 90cm version soon, for location work. I feel like the 120cm with both diffusion screens and grid installed is at about the upper limit of what the RL-600 has the power for when shooting fashion style work at around f/8. I need to have the RL-600 at 1/2 or full power unless it's really close to the model. If I need to get more shots from the charge or faster recycle times, I need to shoot higher ISO than my usual 100. Removing the inner diffusion panel results in a significant center hotspot, so I don't use it like that.

A couple of questions on triggers. I just purchased the Rovelight, but what do I need to trigger it in HSS?

I use the pocket wizard Plus III which acts as both a receiver and transmitter, but they aren't HSS compatible.

So I am looking to buy the Yongnuo 622C

Do I need the YN-622-C-TX for my camera, and a YN-622C transceiver for my strobe, or is it just like the pocket wizards where I just need to buy the 2 pack of YN-622C Transceivers and both of them will work on both camera and strobe?

Lastly do these triggers come with the cable to hook up to the strobe?

A pair of those transceivers will do hss without the 622 TX controller. Every pair of triggers that I have bought does come with a cable, but it was for connecting to the camera to use as a remote shutter release.

If memory serves the Rovelight comes with a very long trigger cable, but I replaced it with an 18 inch version and mounted a cold shoe on top of the Rovelight.

All you need is a Godox X1-c transmitter ($45). Put the v2 RL600B transmitter in the hot shoe of the X1 transmitter then use CFn 00 (flash sync timing) to optimize the flash exposure form the RL600B in HSS. No cables, no receivers and you can gain about 1 more stop of flash exposure from using flash sync timing in HSS. Works like a charm.

This is an interesting choice, but what does this mean?

then use CFn 00 (flash sync timing)


Did you mean the Godox cells II?

The X1-c is a TTL radio trigger from Godox that is part of their new 2.4G TTL wireless system. http://www.amazon.com ...&s=merchant-items&sr=1-18 (external link)

The CFn 00 is a custom function in the X1 that allows you to delay the FP HSS signal to optimize the long flash duration, of a flash using Faux HSS. Like the Rovelight.

If you use the X1-c you do not need any cables or receivers you just put the transmitter, that comes with the Rovelight, in the hot shoe of the X1-c and your done.

With the X1-c you also have the whole inventory of flash products from Godox to choose from should you ever decide to expand your flash setup.

Thanks agv8or. I'm going to give this option a try.

I ordered the Rovelight, but it was backordered, so it will be a while before I'm up and going with it.

Thanks for your input.

Hi Rand.

Do you know whether setting an X1T's CFn 00 affects only the timing of the firing signal sent through its hotshoe? Or does it also affect timing of the firing signals it sends via radio to wirelessly-linked flashes?

Thanks,

Owen.

hmmm... is this the same feature as what the YN622TX have ? The YN622/YN622TX combo can give me HSS with my Profoto AcuteB 600R. With a little tweaking using the YN622TX, adjusting the timing when HSS is ON. It doesn't give me a clean image but it's very tweakable in PP. I wonder if this X1 system can work with other strobes like the Profoto, obviosuly the Rove, Canon speedlights, and YN600rt.
