I've been thinking the exact same thing...

I'm in the process of doing that very same thing. Ordered one to check it out, arrives today with a 622TX. If ok I will be ordering 2-3 more.

I saw that and have it added to my amazon wish list, thanks for the reminder!

I am pretty interested in the YN685 flash that has the 622C built right in. I am considering selling one or both of my 580EXII, and then getting 2 of those flashes. This would simplify all the setup each time. One 580EXII sold would buy 2 of these flashes, and I would have had spare YN units then. Darn it....!

I've managed to amass quite an array of the 580EXIIs and still have two 580EX 1 (sometimes I still prefer the old 580 because of it's dead simple on board controls which require no "refresher" on how to use!)

I've yet to put my hands on an Yongnuo flash unit,. I guess I'll have to give them a try before making any moves. Something tells me that the Market forum is about to have a glut of used 580EXII and the price is going to drop again. Some poor bastard was trying to get close $300.00 the other day... That's like trying to get $500.00 for a 17-40mm ;)

Usually I don't like integrated components like that because what would happen if the radio transceiver dies in the flash? However $110 for what seems like a good ETTL flash, even without the transceiver, is a pretty good deal.

If you get the Godox clamp that was referenced earlier in the thread, you can actually attach flashes to that bracket. So get 2 clamps, one for the battery pack and one for a flash, and you can have floor level fill flash with the 360 powering the rest of the scene. Run a YN622C on the 360, use the YN685 flash on the clamp, and power both from your camera!

Bought the bag, tough to pass up at $15 bucks and can fit all of my speedlites as well as the streaklight plus accessories in one location. I have a larger bag for my alienbee's but needed something smaller and padded for this. This was perfect. Thanks for the recommendation!

Also, I bought the cheetah battery hook and it works great. Received shipment in 3 business days.

Hey Guys,

Are any of you mounting the 360 with the S-Type bracket for Bowens modifiers? I'm a little concerned having the weight of the 360 body hanging loose - could this place stress on the connecting point over time?

Got my second kit today. Excited to get serious with some experimenting and really learning how to use a kit this powerful vs. the old speedlites.

Given the size of some of the modifiers shown for this light and how they're mounted directly to the flash head, I have no concerns with dangling the body off a S-type bracket.

Yes, I use the bracket for Bowens modifiers and it's no problem at all. It's very secure and I have a couple of heavy modifiers (octabox and rectangular softbox) which I position fairly high and pointing downwards. The whole structure is very stable BUT be sure to get a good hefty light stand.

So I'm looking to get a deal like this. I go to :

http://www.adorama.com …ting-holidayspecials-2015 (external link)

See a 360 bundle for $319 when I click through it is this bundle but it's for $349. Anyone know what's up?

ETA: if you click Add to Cart ti's $349, if you just click on the image of the flash it's the same bundle for $399. But I can't figure where to click for $319.

Don't know what to tell you Travis, the original $319,.00 deal we were getting was with a coupon code that is now expired. Without the code it was (a still good) $399.00.

The $349.00 is good but I'd call Adorama about getting the $319.00 deal. And/or, when i clicked your link I also got the pop up from "jenny" who is here to help with questions :)

They appear to have fixed it, and the price now is showing $319.00

So this deal is still on (minus the free reflector and transmitters) However, the deals now may be even more betterer!

Forget the umbrella reflector or transmitter, bundle with any of a number of impressive modifiers, soft boxes etc, and save LOTS. Up to $119.00 off per modifier, and you can get more than one.

Suddenly wish I had not bought the second 360, as Now I;d much rather capitalize on the modifier bundle price!

I think I've decided to wait until friday and make sure I get the best deal I can. Bit of a risk perhaps.
