I wonder if Godox will make an ETTL-version soon.

I do love my 360, but if they release a version with ETTL, I'll buy it instantly :)

600EX-RT compatible ETTL. That would be spectacular.

Godox, have ETTL capable speedlites in its product mix, so they have the firmware, just a matter of adapting it to the larger light. :-)

That is without flash tube and reflector. The link above is with tube and reflector, but without controller. The controllers can be had for $27.

Has anyone notice the CL-180 flash head getting loose? I noticed today that when in the 90 degree position, and all the way down resting on the body, the flash head is pretty loose. I use my umbrella bracket a lot, and I think its taking it's toll out on the head. My primary modifier is the 30" umbrella softbox.

When the flash is past 90 degrees it's fine, but under that, it seems to be getting loose... any one else have this issue?

No, mine's fine. This is a PRIME EXAMPLE of the reason to buy your equipment from someone like CheetahStand who offer such exemplary customer service should there be any issues. Nobody actually wants to have a warranty claim, but it's very reassuring to know that the warranty hasn't vanished for some reason.

Incidentally, that's also one reason why we see rebranded goods which are apparently identical (and are) - the vendor can then determine that the item in question was bought from them. What business needs the expense of repairing/replacing something which was bought elsewhere?

Other odd bits over the decades, simply to get the job done - not merely to polish and brag about cos I'm too mean to buy the polish!

I get what you're saying, and agree when prices are close..That said, the item a few posts back is significantly cheaper (if legit). For a hobbyist like myself it's a big difference. Heck, I can buy 2 complete kits at that price and keep one in a box as a backup.

That reseller is violating the terms of his agreement with Godox. Edward posted about this several days ago:

Calumet also ran afoul of the Godox pricing requirements and has since adjusted their pricing.

Please don't take this as me being flippant but....so what? As I posted in another thread, I've read the return policy, and purchased with my Amex, first sign of trouble I get my money back from them and they can go deal with it..

Again, I'm a hobbyist. If I were to go use this on a paid gig, and it crapped out on me in the middle, shame on me, but right now, I've done the math, weighed the risks (that I'm willing to take) and this works best for me...
