I notice I'm super late to this thread but kind of new to the site and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Francisco Hernandez. Basically posting because I saw talks about the XPLOR 600 by adorama. I recently wrote a blog post about it. This is it;

Attaching an image I used with it. Key is the XPLOR 600 on TTL with a 5 ft octabox camera right with a rovelight 600B camera left and behind the subject up high.

I was wondering when you were going to make your way onto here. Welcome! Great blog post, great live vid on Facebook and awesome first few shoots with the xplor.

Does anyone know if the AD600B with X1S work with Sony as it does with Canon/Nikon at this stage (in terms of all the features TTL etc)

I'm organising a group buy in Australia for this light and having some difficulty finding info on the Sony TTL

edit: Also, if all the features are not yet active, would it be as simple as a firmware update or will the AD600 be physically different

I'm sure David will be able to answer this but I think everything works as it should based on other reports.

Go to my website HERE (external link) it is the first of several pages I've written evaluating the Godox X system when used with the Sony Alpha series. I've also posted here with illustrations of how I've used the system for shoots.

Bottomline, this is a real solution that works.

The only flash I have not tested personally is the 360II which is TTL. There is no reason I can imagine to expect that it won't work. I'm sure it will.

Do you guys use them out doors?

edit: also, I noticed that the C12/10 stands have the folding leg feature when you pick it up - thats really cool. Do you guys use them on grass/sand?

Yep, I use my C12 stands on grass and sand.

The way they're designed, you need to initially touch the center post of the stand to the ground to initiate the swing of the legs outward so they can then provide the support and stability for the stand. At that point, if the ground underneath is uneven and touching the central post, then the system becomes unstable because it wants to either close the legs again or otherwise tip over.

So the real key to using this stand on uneven ground is to make sure there's nothing underneath the central post, so that the legs are the only thing in contact with the ground. I've dug or kicked small depressions in the ground underneath the C12 central post to help ensure the system is more stable in that situation, and it works reasonably well. I've steadied one of the legs on a rock or a bean bag. I've done other things to balance it. With care, you can take it most places that you'd bring a traditional stand. You may need a set of assistants' hands to help or keep an eye on it. But you can do a lot more with it than might at first be thought.

Hoping to get my own C-stand at some point, too.

The difficulty with any light stand, even a C stand, is vector geometry. The center of gravity vector has to be inside the base of the stand falls over. Naturally, the more weight one has low the better.
Cheetah Stands are inherently no more or less stable than other stands. The self opening aspect is complicated by the uneven terrain. I've found that grabbing and pulling up on the sleeve that actuates the leg opening will get the legs open, then carefully place it just as one would any other stand.
