My wife helped teach a class for the world famous (if you're into heirloom sewing) Martha Pullen school in Huntsville, AL. She came back with a dress that fits our 5 year old, and needed some pictures ASAP. This was quick & dirty with no time to set up backdrops and not much space in which to work, so no flames () please for the candle holder sticking out of her head. (Note: Skin tones and colors look really weird with Internet Explorer)
I had a choice of TTL-capable speedlights, Einstein's and CL-360's. I could have used any of those, but chose to use a pair of Cheetah's due to their simplicity. Using a light meter, it took less than a minute to adjust the lights and start shooting. Yes, it's that fast.
Why not Einstein's? This would have been my 2nd choice. The CyberCommander has very useful features (that I never use), but the menu system is clumsy when compared to Cheetah's.
Why not TTL-capable speedlights? This would have been my last choice because TTL doesn't provide the consistency. Since this was a static subject, I would have put them in manual mode anyway. The choice of speedlight modifiers is also more restrictive. YMMV.
