I think I figured out at least part of my problems with the RT610 yesterday. The communication problems always begin last in a session, when the battery is at half power or less. I don't know why I never noticed that before, but that's when it started yesterday, and all of a sudden I rememered that is when it has always happened in the past.

It still operates with the lower battery level, but it loses communication frequently. More and more as the batter gets even lower.

Since I am happy with the system otherwise, for the most part, I guess I will get another battery.

Looking thru photos from yesterday, and the more I think back about previous experiences with the RT610, TTL also becomes less reliable when the battery begins to become depleted.

Just checking on another battery now. Wow - the battery is almost half the cost of the strobe with battery!

the replacement tube that I purchased for Adorama ORLIT RoveLight RT 800AC TTL Studio Monolight (Jinbei) arrived (to replace the one that came broken as installed fro Adorama) and upon testing it with ORLIT TR-Q6 trigger for Sony (with updated firmware) I found that TTL is totally not working, so it seems the praise of Jinbei was way premature... and it is much worse that it was with ORLIT RoveLight RT 610 TTL Monolight couple of month ago, much worse (it can't be called TTL at all - it failes at any aperture)... I probably will open a new topic tomorrow dedicated to TTL failures in Adorama ORLIT RoveLight RT 800AC TTL Studio Monolight (Jinbei) and supply raw files for public to see what we are being sold again and again... unbelievable

Not to take matters to far from the subjects being discussed. After I updated the firmware on my Orlit RT610, I saw a new addition called TTL_F in the Wireless Remote Control section. Could that be pending for Fujifillm? Is a TR-Q6 TTL Flash Trigger in the works?

why not - competition (for Jinbei that will be Godox at the price and may be quality level) did this - so it will be reasonable for Jinbei to add TTL support for Fuji and m43 too - still some money to be made ...

Used the 610 this evening with speedlights for fill. Never needed the second battery. Didn't have any problems with lost RF connection, but TTL exposure was off several times, and in about every 25-30 shots it completely blew out the exposure. Fortunately we snagged quite a few keepers...
