Was just about to buy into the current 600 system but am a little spooked about what might be coming in a few months.

i am accepting leaked compatibility details via PM if anyone wants to help a brother out. :D

I have the same unease, but I just decided to go for a second unit now. For one, the price is right and it's already a good enough unit for me, second, if the new unit is incompatible in some way, at least I'll have a backup to keep my first unit company.

Ultimately I need this to be capable of 1200w/s and don't have the cash, or immediate need to plop down the cash for the whole set up right now.

No PMs yet. ;)

That coffee-dispenser news is welcome, and it can only improve.....hoping Godox is tackling all the shortcomings in the AD600 without loosing backwards-compatible to the existing AD600 accessories.

Shortcomings:

- posing light
- in-mature s-fit (Bowens)
- rattling handle which is not very controllable

Move the umbrella shaft mount closer to center
Faster recycle time (would need new battery)
1200 w/s model

Lower price
Swarovski crystals on case
Unicorn on unicycle

What does "Wistro" mean, anyway?

I believe it means WITHOUT Swarovski crystals on case and WITHOUT Unicorn on unicycle.

Best explanation I've heard. Maybe there's a "WITHSTRO" in the works. I can dream.


Seriously, it's probably more along the lines of "Cool-sounding marketing names in one language just leave foreigners scratching their heads."

I have an almost brand new XPLOR600 that I haven't used (bought 2 of them). Maybe I should sell it and buy the new ones. But then I already spent enough money on gear this yr.

Regarding low light power and WB issues, I mostly shoot f2, outdoors and haven't noticed anything. Examples:

Most probably my 37' SP Systems octobox which is like Elinchrom deep octa. If not then must be medium photoflex softbox.
