Anyone else want to chime in on their favorite modifier for their AD200's?

I also really want to know what the best reflectors are to use with the Bowens S-Type bracket. Right now I'm looking into getting a standard 7" reflector, and possibly a Colt 45 or some other "long throw" style reflector. I shoot a lot on location outdoors, so I'm thinking the long throw reflector may be best so I have the option to place my last stand farther back to keep it out of frame on wider shots.

I'm also hoping the reflector will help with brighter conditions using HSS. Any issues using the twin head with both bulbs with a reflector?

Sorry for all the questions, I'm just getting started with my dual AD200's and Godox trigger system.


I probably need to post some of my test shots, but I've discovered significant difference in the quality of light thrown by various 7-inch reflectors.

Without a doubt, the straight-sided polished reflectors cast the harshest, ugliest light. It not only has a glaring hot spot, but the falloff is uneven and "ringed." Brushing the surface makes it somewhat better.

The reflectors sold with Adorama--polished but pebbled surface--are nicer.

But I've found the Haoge brand reflectors which
h seem nearly identical to the Adorama reflectors--cast an even significantly smoother light. The design of the pebbling seems to matter a good deal.

Dang it, I bought another... I figure I can sell off some of the accessories and only keep what I want from the package. That is the price I paid for just the flash and barndoor, and you get 5 other things in addition to that original package.

I would have bought one if Fuji pro trigger was available. But agree, very good deal.

I was waiting for that ;-)a

Though I think you saw all the commotion when they discounted the XPLOR a month of so ago.

What does that normally retail at? It is TTL it seems. Seems like a great deal?! I need to pull the trigger. What is the best transmitter to select?

I wish they would put just the head up on sale. Or the same package without the remote since I just bought this same thing for Black Friday. Oh well, guess I’ll have two remotes and two dual heads.

I wasn't going to get the XPro either (at least for quite some time), and already have the Bowens dual head, so I will have the dual head to sell, the reflector kit, the barndoor (don't need 3), maybe the X1C transmitter, and probably the LED head. This leaves me the AD200 kit and XPro for a final great deal.
