I get really lucky when "browsing/ lurking" around Adorama's used section. Found a like new V860II for a steal!

Now i need to figure out a snoot/grid situation for my speed light, i will poke around in the flash sub-forum as well.


Lucky you :-P

Have a look at the Magmod stuff, it's super overpriced but the quality is good and the ease of use in the filed it where the value is. It's very quick to change out modifiers like grids and gels.

Very lucky lol.

I probably end up with mag mod, even though it’s expensive.

Magmod is worth it.

This is an option but the magnets may be weak.

I love their used section, a lot of my gear comes from them and its indistinguishable from brand new. I picked up an Xplor 600 with an E- rating and it still had the plastic on the LCD and it looked brand new. I was hesitant because it was four ratings down from brand new but Adorama really does have a strict rating system and of course their support rocks.


Good to hear - Thanks!

I broke down and picked up the R2 Pro transmitter:lol:

This thing is superior to the last transmitter in every way possible, it has a huge display so working with multiple lights are a dream.
No accidentally changing the groups with the scroll wheel thanks to the dedicated group buttons. :p
Ability to change all group power levels at the same time is a nifty feature.

Even though it seems small these little nuances are time savers when working.

The X-Pro trigger really is a nice trigger. Looks a little big on a Fuji but it's function is great. The tiny screen and little scroll wheel were a big turn off on the x1t triggers for me. Glad I waited for the x-pro (while using the tt-350 as a trigger while waiting).

Not just need to use it and my AD200's more!!!!

One thing I noticed when using the X1 trigger w/ two or more lights the operation gets a little quirky.
I always end up changing the wrong light power, or think I am changing the power but I'm scrolling to a different group.-? I have a shoot coming up and I plan to use two lights and I know I will be adjusting power on the fly because of the poses that are planned out. Now I can focus more on composition. :-P

Recently I've gone back to my X32c as a controller on the camera, just much easier to use than the awful X1t. Only if I really need HSS or TTL remotely (almost never) would I switch back. I've been a bit put off by the size of the X-Pro-f on the Fuji camera so haven't bought one yet. That would be the fourth controller from Godox I'd have bought to control the one light :rolleyes:

Probably will cave in a some point soon, say Fu © it then press the buy now button on amazon

I was the same way, I really did not want to buy another controller but trust me it’s so good and I am a happy camper now.

The X-Pro actually isn't that much larger then the x32

Thanks for that. When I saw the original images I just though it look too big. Oh well here we go again.

I'm kinda stuck with Cactus triggers with my Canon gear. Fuji x-t2 doesn't work the greatest with the V6mk2.

The only major disappointment in the R2pro is that it does not have a hotshoe on top. I often either turn off my flash on top of trigger or use the flash on top of trigger for fill.

The R2Pro is fine if your doing more studio stuff but for run and gun you have no alternative in having fill flash from a speedlight on shoe. Of course you can hope 1 out of your remote flash will give you nice fill but not consistently. This of course all depends on your style and if you want dramatic lighting. I'll do both consistently (fill or no fill) doing exactly what I want with flash on camera shoe (trigger with hotshoe) with Cactus (my useless unreliable pocket wizard flex had that option with my canon gear).

Alan look into any of the Godox flashes that have the commander built in. This way you don't need the commander+flash combo on top of your camera.

The TT350F, TT600, and V860II(li-on) can send and receive the R2 signal to other Godox lights and they can act as fill when needed.
