Not sure what you are asking but if it is will the Canon flash units work in HSS with the 622 on a Sony then the answer is no.

yes, thanks.

been looking at the flash forums.... wow, between all the options, I'm definitely confused. A simple 622 will probably work for me, but the flashpoint 360 deal is highly appealing.

I have a 360 and an older 180. Fantastic products that recycle very fast (an overlooked issue when dealing with regular flash units) and have lots of power. You really can't go wrong with one of these.

is the Nissin i40 still the best option?

haven't bought anything yet, will Nissin i40 work well wirelessly? to trigger other flash? or two be triggered?

For an on camera flash, the Nissin i40 is a great choice- very nice little flash. For off camera flash, I'm currently trying the Nissin i700A and Air 1 commander system as I would prefer HSS and TTL. I'm also interested in the recently announced i60 flash for this system.

Received the Nissin Di700A and Air Commander 1 today. All working well, but the only issue is that the flash is very wobbly in the included mini stand. What does everyone use as a cold shoe to get the flash off camera?

For my setup I was going to go with the Godox v860ii, but I will be buying the one from Cheetahstand, I think it was named the v860x. Wireless is built in and they have the X1 transmitter to control it from the camera.
