Just hold down the sync/fn button and its will say 01 55 0.0
move the arrow keys right and left till you get the right sync.
0.0 - 2.0

I was doing that but could only get the timing to center the photo. If you look at my 2 pics on the previous page you will see what I mean. Will have to practice more this weekend. Is there any difference in putting the 360 on the shoe of the 622 or connect thru pc sync?


Way too much stuff:p

I'm waiting for the arrival of my first 360... I thought the 360 was HSS native. I just read the manual and it says that HSS can't be used on the 360 on the hot shoe. Does this mean that I need to use ss of the 622tx and not like just switching the HSS mode on as I do with my 580ex2?

H mode on the 360 uses the same rapid pulsing flash to provide a flat output for the duration of the shutter travel. Its not High Speed Sync because there is no communication between the flash and the camera. The light has to be set into H mode via a button sequence. The Cells IIc trigger, or YN-622 is required to get the camera to fire in FP sync mode. That setup works fine. Its different than SS mode which is like Pocket Wizard Hyper Sync and completely different than H mode.

That's what I wanna know also. I couldn't find it when I looked last week, but I'm also capable of being an intergoogle idiot.

Looks like Godox will soon be reducing the suggested retail price of the 360. Edward has temporarily suspended ordering of the Cheetah CL-360 until after a 7/24 price reduction is announced.

Any rumors will anything like that be happening for CL-180?

Could anyone help me out here?

If I had 1 battery, and two x CL-360 lights... both plugged into the same battery... Assuming both are on 1/1 power... what output would I be getting?

Would it be 360 x 2 or does it not work like that?

Thanks

The light output is controlled by each flash unit and not the power supply. Most flashes these days have an inhibitor circuit which prevents firing before recycling is complete (80% complete in a very few other makes) so the power input is irrelevant in this context. Hence you can use 1 x CL-360, 2 x CL--360, 3 x CL-360 or 4 x CL-360 (or any other compatible flash unit, including mix 'n match) and get the full output as set by you from each one. In your example, you'd get 360 #1 at 1/1 power plus 360 #2 at 1/1 power.

I sometimes use 1 x AD-180, 1 x AD-360, 1 x Ving v860 and 1 x YN-565EX off a single battery with the correct output from each unit. It's a bit like cable macramé and individual power packs are tidier (if I can be bothered getting them out of the bags). There is a tiny increase in recycle time when using multiple units, but most of the time it's barely worth even thinking about.

The number of batteries has nothing to o with the amount of light.

Each light is rated just over 300 watt seconds.


Edit: slow on the draw. Need more coffee.

The only differences here is that:

1) Two flashes going 1/1 from the same battery will consume twice as much juice. So you only get half as many pops from each flash.

2) Having two flashes recharge from the same battery will give a slower recycle speed than if you used a two-to-one cable and recharged a single flash from the combined output of both connectors on the battery pack. And it would be a slightly bit slower than if you recharged a single flash from a single connector on the battery pack - but I'm not sure if the difference would be noticeable or not.

But in the end - as already noted before, a fully charged flash will manage the same flash intensity without caring that it had to share the battery with other flash units. The battery pack isn't involved in the actual flash sequence - just in the recharge after a pop.

Prototype of what? Modeling light? Remote head? If it's remote head I like that design very much.
