Being more rugged build and with a handle and LED light that can be useful. I think it is a nice strobe for outdoor use. Indoor use Godox has the strobe with AC power and better modeling light already.

I need the more powerful modeling light and more consistent color for studio work, not so much for location. However...they haven't shown an AC adapter for the 600Pro. I may go to their current AC version that already has a 150 watt halogen modeling light and consistent color--which costs only half as much--to compliment my AD600s.

Which were you thinking of? Current flaghship models are the QT IIs and they're $600 and $800USD.

One thing to keep in mind is that the spec's on paper, does not always reflect the real world performance.

Considering the AD600E states a tolerance within +/-200K which is not true at all.

It's rather 800-1000k from low to high. The tolerance from pop to pop is however acceptable within 100k.

Now it's quite possible the color stability is improved, however, if their previous specs. is any indication i would take that with a grain of salt.

I'll need a little more time to put my results up but on initial tests I'm finding the 600 to actually perform equal to or better than the stated tolerances. Maybe you need to rerun your tests and share your methods. I'll do likewise.

I used a calibrated C-700, ran it several times. So I don't need to rerun my tests.

Impressive specs and will wait until the first reviews and updates are out. Before getting them! They are a broncolor/Profoto mutt for the masses ;)

Your turn around still needs improvement. I sent a StreakLight -- still under waranty -- for exchange and the whole deal took over three weeks. You should have a repair center in major cities for your brand -- like many big shops do.

I will be happy if a MASSIVE recycle time improvement like AD600 to AD600POR. From 2.5s to 0.9s :) Streaklight with Y connector its around 2.4s :)

So an other strange feature is the strage Kelvin of the LED of 4800.

It could be the case that the LED is bicolor and that 4800K is the maximum output of the two colours combined at this fixed setting.

If you have a 3200K and 5600K combined then the average Kelvin value would be 4400K at maximum power output. If you put less 3200K in then the color temperature will increase but you will loose power output at the same time.

This means that the design would be ready for more video support now you could balance the color of the led to the ambient light.

Is there some documentation that would suggest it is bicolor? Seems like a single COB LED from the photo

Each row of LED's or each LED has an different gel applied.

Depends on the loudness of the fan.

Not gels, but phosphors.

Indeed and the fan starts as soon as you hit the 30% intensity. A AD600 fan is not silent and only a few people know how loud the AD600Pro fan is.
