Sorry but that is a calculation of f11.7 and not f11 + 7/10 of a stop and f16 + 2/10 of a stop, so I am right and know how to use my meter ;-)a

Mike

Well maybe if you would send me your meter so I can learn what the heck your talking about ;)

Wow math!

If my head is on right this evening, 7/10 of a stop over f/11 would be in the neighborhood of f/14.5 ish? 2/10 over f/16 is about f/17.5 ish..

Plug those into Talleys link and boom .54 stop (about 1/2 to most of the world)

I've never held a light meter so had no clue how they readout.

For what it is worth, I recently bought my first light meter. It's been something of a revelation.

You have a camera with a builtin meter. Its a reflective meter but still a meter.
Better yet it also does flash metering on a per shot basis.

I've had and used hand held light meters starting with reflective meters because that's all that was available.
Then I got an incident meter for constant lighting.
When I started using strobes I did everything by trial and error because there weren't any useful flash meters.
Then I got one of the first available. the incident dome was about 3/8 inch in diameter.

The point is that meters, whether they measure flash light, constant light, diameter of a rod, or distance from the goal post to the point where the ball will be placed for the extra point, are just that, measuring devices. They provide a numeric representation that has to be converted to useful information by the metering person's experience, insights and knowledge.

How someone else measures something for their photography is really useless to me for my photography.

I just received an AD200. Will try to do some testing over the weekend.
A quick test in a Westcott Apollo strip box no diffusion with the front edge about 4 feet from Manny resulted in F22, 1/250, ISO200 full power.
F2.8 was at 1/64 power.
One nice feature, since its a slave by design, is that the only setting required is the Group. Then its controlled by the XT1 or whatever master is on the camera.
The insides must be packed tight because its heavy even though about the same size as a v860II with the head pointed up.

Yep that was a conclusion I came to during testing, I reckon it is a fantastic OCF unit

I am once again happy to see StrobePro offering up a fair option :-)

Available since yesterday also in Australia.

Maybe silly question but the manual is not clear if this can be triggered by a V860ii on camera without the x1t keeping HSS and ETTL

Yes.
The AD200 is a slave light in the X system. It can be set to A,B,C,D,E group and then controlled by a flash on camera or a controller trigger.

Interesting to see that Adorama now has many of the individual components from the "kit" listed along with prices that in many instances appear to include shipping.

Yes - it's reassuring to know we can get "spare parts". On that topic, it would be really nice if Godox made *empty* metal gel frames available for the AD200. I'd be more interested in having various CTO flavors than the red, green yellow and blue gels that come with the barndoors. But that's the biggest nit I have to pick about the flash. So far it seems pretty great. And, you can also just mash the barndoors over a regular speedlight gel. Ugly but it works....

Agreed.

I bought one from Adorama - the charge on my cc was C$451.05, but after the 15% PST/GST I paid to bring it back over the border, it came to C$518.71

I just ordered one from Strobepro (flash C$399 + barndoors/gels C$39, so the total was C$459.90 after 5% GST. It's definitely a weird feeling to buy something in Canada and NOT have it stupidly overpriced compared to US pricing. (And yes, I know the Europeans have it way, way, worse...)

Owen.

I do all my weddings with a Rogue Flashbender on a speedlight (off camera), by default it has to be on "bounce to the ceiling" position so it can push the light forward. Is it flexible enough to put the flash head vertically with an umbrella bracket/swivel?
