Thanks!!! I could not find that for some reason.


So 6 months electronics and year old the plastic stuff that is probably the weak point.


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

Six months for flash tubes and batteries, all the rest one year.

.... please make clear what is so special about these flashes. Is it something special that other flashes can't do?


  1. Crystal clear, ultra-simple instructions & subsequent use. Not that these are needed though, almost impossible to go wrong.
  2. Don't weigh a ton - multiple units very easily portable even for folks with walking difficulties.
  3. Don't break the Bank buying them.
  4. Expanding range of useful accessories at a sensible price - e.g. not mega-$$$$$ for a bit of ordinary cable with 1 bog standard £1 (retail) DIN plug and 1 proprietary one.
  5. Ongoing product development based on feedback from actual users
    viz:
    • Godox 'Mushroom/Chinese Lantern' colour corrected after feedback from beta testers, prior to US launch.
    • Beauty dish sock material colour corrected after feedback - a fabric failure rather than a manufacturer defect.
    • Multi-purpose reflector diffuser attachment modified & improved for speedier placement.

  6. Exemplary customer support if needed - well .... in USA anyway ;)
  7. They come in a pretty velvety bag with nice stringy things that are relaxing to pull. :p

Phil ǁ Kershaw Soho Reflex: 4¼" Ross Xpres, 6½" Aldis, Super XX/ABC Pyro in 24 DDS, HP3/Meritol Metol in RFH, Johnson 'Scales' brand flash powder. Kodak Duo Six-20/Verichrome Pan. 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!

are these breaking a lot? What do you think about the product, not the service? Were you rough with it? Come pre broken? Did you drop it?

I'm the first one I can find that has had an issue with it. I have not dropped it, nor was I hard on it. I really like the flash unit, in fact, I'm thinking about selling my e640 to purchase a CL-360. I'd actually like to have a 2-3 of them, but currently I'm in between jobs :( .

Jesus, you are one of the few photographers here whose work always inspires me. I could not agree more with what you say ( and more importantly do) with your Cheetah lights.

I'm currently in Cancun getting ready to shoot a wedding tomorrow. I brought three of my Cheetah lights with me and they will get quite a workout as I have a very difficult lighting situation to deal with.

I've placed an order.

Good for you. Let us know once it arrives.

adammazza wrote in post #16362743 (external link)
Which vendor is giving you a replacement order overnight if you need one?

Vendor that has them in stock in US.

adammazza wrote in post #16362743 (external link)
Look, I'm sure if I paid for something and saw it potentially cheaper by 50% somewhere else I'd want to point out every potential pitfall as well.

That's you, not me. Me, I am just trying to give balanced perspective to a lot of talk about frying of the fish that is still somewhere across the ocean, maybe.

adammazza wrote in post #16362743 (external link)
If you're happy with your purchase, not sure why you'd even spend the time arguing about it online.

Who is arguing? I post few very brief posts a day at max. That can be seen as arguing only if person has very vivid imagination.
