And possibly more efficient than then XPLOR 600 since the bulb looks like it's located in a better spot in relation to the Bowens mount

wouldn't the dual bulb situation help coverage anyway for a single?

The fact it has a LED modeling lamp for "some" assisted light in an all in one package is good. This blows. I just got my 2 360ttl back in nov and now I wanna ditch them and my 2 manuals for 4 of these 200s.

Not sure. I'd do it if I were you but that's just me :p

Dave, any nice wide umbrella reflector in case I need to use AD200 with photek softliter?

Bobby;
Here is what I use with softlighter: http://www.cheetahstan​d.com/product-p/cl-s6.htm (external link)

Mount light on S bracket, mount reflector pull soft lighter diffusion panel "sock" around the reflector and your good to go.

Wait, Whaaaaaat?!

This is an interesting development!

Oh man, what a cool device.

Also, notice that there are two LED modeling lights.

Can't wait to get my hands on one.

I use the 7" reflector from my 600 when I need one, and I got the umbrella reflector from Amazon but cheetah stands also sells it

I wasn't paying attention earlier. AD600 reflectors are totally different. Maybe you meant AD360 or AD180.

Bobby,
I tend to use the 600 7" reflector with the S bracket so I can use gels, grids and barn doors.
360 or 200 in the S bracket.

Indeed,..
Adorama seems to have made that page disappear in the mean time, (sorry I didn't think to get a screen grab, but I'm sure someone has it somewhere :) )


I've been putting off the AD200 for some time, but I am considering grabbing one asap to pack for Africa,. overpowering the strong sun in harsh light, and night shooting, all wirelessly,.. could be hand held/aimed at subjects by Liz,. or mounted on a flash bracket. Unlike the AD360, the fresnel head looks like it would easily work with a stock better beamer for long lens work.

I would not pack the bulky AD360 for this, so it would otherwise be a V860 lithium ion. But damn the ability to take on the African Sun has a lot of appeal, and the V860 would be hard pressed to do that. The fact that the AD200 will take up no more room than an 860...

hmmm...

I need to stop watching youtube photo shoots!

OMG this thing is amazing!

It's small, relatively light weight (though a good deal heavier than a speedlite I think) and the battery came 80% so I was able to take some immediate tst shots just to make sure it was talking to the X1-T

In my dark office with the lights out, (some sun coming through closed blinds) I put it on my 7D2 and shot the other side fo the office @ 400mm (SIGMA 100-400mm of course)

I forgot it was in burst mode,. 7 shots in a burst, all perfectly exposed! This thing recycles fast!
