I was reading the above posts this morning while hanging around a swim meet earlier. I think if you understand the limitations of HSS and work around them it's a nice feature....especially when used for fill.

In light of the (mini)discussion above I asked my wife to stop outside for a quick test shot using a6500 + TT350s in HSS mode.

Manual flash mode full 1/1 power, f2, 1/3200. Flash was off camera left, held by my son ~4-5ft away. I bumped overall exposure only 0.2. Previous experiences with HSS have left me underwhelmed given the massive power loss with the higher SS's. Maybe I should rethink as I actually think HSS works reasonably well in this case despite such a high SS.

Of course the shot looks much crisper on Flickr at full resolution. -? Can't wait for the change to max size here on POTN.

Got a flash question for you guys using OCF. I know it’s been discussed a lot before but I didn’t pay attention at the time and now can’t find it. For OFC on my a7rii am I best going the Godox route? Is there a trigger/controller that allows me to change the manual settings on the remote flashes? Does godox allow wireless TTL?

Thanks in advance

Edit - being doing a bit of reading online. It seems the x1t-s trigger allows remote adjustment of flash power which is what I was after. Just can’t decide between the 350 or the larger 685. Any advice on this is appreciated

I already use the 350 much more than the 685 due to size. The 350, you can easily fit in your pocket, where the 685, you'de have a big ol bulge.

the 685 is massive on the a7's, it feels like mounting the equivalent of a 24-70f2.8 in terms of flash, while the TT350 is a FE 55 f1.8 equivalent. Sure the 685 is stronger, but if you end up leaving it at home, then it doesnt mean much.

Godox all the way. Inexpensive gear, reliable, does everything. You are correct, x1t-s is the way to control off camera flashes. You can change any setting remotely with the x1t-s including flash power. Yes, off camera HSS/TLL works with the x1t-s. It's a great set up.

I have both TT350s and it's eldest sibling, V860IIs (got as part of a package deal...would never buy it new). I use the TT350 much more....mainly cause of it's size. It balances well on the small a6500 and can basically be put in my pocket when not in use. The only real downside is that it's not quite as powerful. It has plenty of power for around the house and some easy outdoor fill. That said, gotta remember both TLL and HSS zap power. So if you are going to get into too much TLL or outdoor/bright condition HSS, the bigger flashes are going to be better.

Godox for me too. and if you change a camera brand, just buy another X1t for that brand.

Thanks. For my sigs, I'm afraid I can't teach anything since I learn as I go. I just try to imagine where my sig might blend into the image somewhere and then it's mostly trial and error after that to figure out how to do it.

HSS with my daughter on Homecoming night with my A6500. I think I had the flash power a little too high as I see a chin shadow. Love the catch light in her eyes though.

I really like the details in the water when viewed large.

thanks Gene, when I got to the top of the falls I hated I didn't carry at least a small tripod but all worked out.
