I don't have this light, but I would think it would work as any other bare bulb light in this modifier. Biggest difference will be how far into the box the ligjt is mounted.

I just wasn't sure if the light would spread evenly from top to bottom. I guess it would get the best coverage with the reflector removed from the bare bulb the more I think about it.

You're gonna use something like this without the reflector.

I have Elinchrom, Photoflex and Ez-pro boxes and strips. The Elinchrom and Ez-pro have deflector along with inner diffusers that allow for light dispersion. Any reason you're looking at that particular box? You're paying a premium for heat resistance that you probably don't need. That heat resistance also makes the box heavier.

Sorry for not reading all 415 pages of this thread. :) But how are you bare bulb flash guys triggering your flash?

Will the 360 fill a large soft box just as effectively as the 7 ft umbrella or would it be subject to hot spots? How do you think it would perform with say this soft box?

. . . no Grid included?

There are a number of ways but I would say most are using the FT16 trigger and receiver. Other are using the yn622c, Odins, and the Cells IIc, all of which can help with HSS.

This is what I was wondering....is the 622 Tx/622 compatible with these flashes. Apparently they are, :) That would blend beautifully with me speed light setup.

I'm using a Pocket Wizard TT1 but only if I need HSS or am mixing with Canon speedlites (on TT5s). Otherwise I just use the FT16.

I just received the FP 360 version and my 622s are firing however not with HSS. My 580exii swapped out continues at >200 without blackout. Does the pic sync cord use require a different mode?

you are over thinking it, the 360 works as good or better than any other light as far as distribution in the softbox.

do you have the 2nd 622 plugged to the 360 via sync cord?
