In theory just white balancing a reference target wouldn't fix the issue. In practice the issue doesn't seem to present notable problems.

I always have to chuckle at color accurate claims - unless it's super refined work there are so so many factors that kill color workflow, that a swing from one setting to another is a comparatively small issue.

The color of the subject's shirt kicking back into their face; the age of the diffusion material in front of one strobe versus another; incidental reflection; mixed sources like ambient and strobe. From my experience, there are smart things to do, like throwing down black fabric at the subject's feet, isolating them from tungsten or fluoro, book end them with black or white… provided all your light is in the same general ballpark, you work to minimize any overt cast, things look really clean.

And for any problems some Luminosity Mask, to Apply Image, to a Curve for shadows vs highs will bring everything in to spec.

I guess I did mix them up here, in fact I had 3 different kinds of flashes. The TT685s, AD200s and an AD360...

I didn't see any issues in this 2 week shoot either, so I don't think it is really a big deal. I also shoot a custom WB, so maybe that takes care of things.

I think that it's a good point. In what sort of scenario the heads would be mixed ?

...

I have not done it with the AD200,. (yet)
But I have been mixing AD360 bare bulb with V860 speedlights (and 580EXII) for some time, long before the AD200 existed. I would assume we are looking at the same kind of problem with color there.

As for Ad200, to date I have only used it with the fresnel! (I honestly forgot to swap it to the barebulb the one time I used a big octa box! :oops::oops::oops:

Hope you don't mind me posting again... Another outdoors shot from this weekend. Left my taller tripod in the car, so had to strap the AD to a fence post to get it higher.

First real test with it today and it worked like a charm.

I am about to purchase this flash and want to know the most practical softbox that's reasonably priced and stand to use? I was going to get the kit that includes the softbox but it appears it may not be the best. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I'm using Westcott RapidBoxes. They are awesome!
As far as stands just pick what you can afford.

I use manfrotto stands they last a long time even in harsh environments. As for soft boxes I'd recommend something like cheetah quick soupbowl or their Snub 38, but you'll need a twin head or Bowens adapter
