Look what arrived today :) Just testing out the HSS ... one of the main reasons I went this route strobe wise. NO ND FILTER!!! YES!!! lol I have a few shoots lined up... this is going to be fun. I need to assemble the 48" Rice Bowl and give it a try. The 12ft cheetah stand is really nice. Solid, and I love how the legs lift up and go down... I have a big smile on my face LOL

Cool . Does anyone have the remote-head attachment yet? I'm eager to hear how it handles in real life...

Nope... it's my next order... should have just bought it when I placed my initial order. I'd like to hear some feedback about the remote head.

On another note... the 48" Rice Bowl wasn't horrible to assemble. The fabric is pretty tight where you close the seams but I'm sure over time and use, it will loosen up. Nice looking modifier. Now I just need some subjects to use it on :)
