lol ;) Just pokin. Evidently the accessories must be next to nothing and Adorama is really only giving a $15 discount vs amazon and throwing in the barndoor for free.

Well I just bought 4 of these guys for $1140 and also preordered two of the flash brackets.

I don't think there is any point of me keeping any of my 360's at this point so I should be able to sell all 4 of my 360's to basically cover the expense of these 200's or get me close to it.

I don't use my 360s but maybe 4-5 times a year so mine are still mint. These are just going to be so much more convenient with the size and no cables needed.

The biggest selling point for me is the modeling lamps. Anyone know if it's dual 10W? I don't need alot of modeling light power but to have some enough to light up to focus is all I really need.

I just got the pelican 1510 also and wanted that to be my lighting case and these will fit much better in there than the 360's and the battery pack. I hadn't considered these but the twin bracket adapter sold me.

This is really good price. AmEx credit card had $30 of $250 so I got mine for $300. Waiting for that $40 coupon from Adorama.

There is a new Mini Reflector (AD-M) (external link) available for pre-order now as well.

What is different between this and one from Amazon:

Anyone used this folding beauty dish:

Or what modifier you folks using with AD200. Something portable for single person shots. Thanks.

Ricebowl is my portable solution. Good carrying case breaks down quickly sets up quickly. It's not a pop out design like the buff softboxes but I can assemble mine in less than a minute and it breaks down super small. I have the 36" just for single portraits.

Half the size...

I'm sure they will release color kits and honeycomb kits for these. Would make for a very nice smaller solution than the big 360 reflector.

I have SP systems foldable octa but takes lot of space. I should have clarified, I am looking for portable solution for carry on bags. That's why I picked AD200.

Let me know what u find out. I wanted the ad200 so it fits in my streetwalker roller bag. Be nice if I could find something that fits in it other than umbrella

I ordered this cheap umbrella box with my AD200, interested in max output for outdoors.

https://www.amazon.com …9&sr=1-3&keywords=softbox (external link)

It was metered F22 @ 4-5' without the front difussion, vs F11 with the standard umbrella, so it helps the relative low power of the AD200. It also controls the spread quite well. There's a 48" version that will give softer light, but this 36" one folds down to 24" long and very light weight.

It's not a coupon code, there is a coupon however for the evolv200 without the whole kit but it's only $6 cheaper than getting the whole thing
But the evolv should be showing up at $285 right now on Adorama isn't it?

I think the question was about the cash back reward coupon code...
