The Godox AD600 WITSRO is the same unit as the Xplor600

Thanks. Now why would I choose the Witstro over the AD200.....my the noob in overall flash knowledge. I'd
assume portability?
I'd like to find something that is portable but can keep up with 10fps shutter.

Mainly for the power difference if you need it. The Wistro 600 is 3 times more powerful than the AD200

For 10fps, I would consider the Rotolight NEO II LED unit. It's compact and light but won't throw light very far. It's the only light that I know of that will keep up with 10fps

It depends on how much power you need. If you're trying to overpower midday sun, the ad600 is what you'll need. Also recycle times and battery life are better on the AD600.

That said, I think a single AD200 is powerful enough for most uses. I only pull the ad600 out these days for very specific needs.

Petting farm with the kids. Kicked myself for being lazy and only bringing the 135 . . . and not having a zoom.

You certainly made it work for you though! I'm looking forward to my RX1RII rental coming in for specifically this purpose, to carry something with outstanding IQ in a small package but not get in the way while watching the kids. No matter what anyone says, any camera with a 135 lens on it is going to have a bigger footprint.

Thank you very much for the kind words :)

After seeing what Carlo did with his RX1Rii, it is clear that body is a real champ. I'm sure you create some nice magic with it.

And yeah, a fast 135 is still a brick. What we do for bokeh! :)

What new glass would you like to see come out for a-mount? An 85ZA and 135ZA refresh with SSM probably for me, along with a redesigned 35 1.4G. The 400 2.8 or f4 prime is long overdue. Maybe a 200 f2G?

Well I'm not as interested in new glass as I once was due to deciding to go with E mount instead of A. But I would still like to see Sony come out with a few new lenses if not to simply show that they still have some sort of dedication to the A mount. It is in fact what got them to the point they're at now. It would be as if when Chevrolet brought back the camaro, they suddenly and mysteriously stopped making Corvettes without telling anyone why.

But I would like to see an 85mm refresh. I think a 200 f2 may be bold with the state that A mount is in right now, but it would certainly make a statement on their dedication to the A mount! Even if it was small lenses like a cheap 50 with updated AF or some pancake lenses would be nice simply to let their consumers know they still are vested in the A mount system.

It keeps up because it's strobe power is very limited. For serious strobe lighting I would not recommend it unless you have multiple units, can get them close to your subject, and it's quite dark in your shooting area. I don't know any situation where you would need to shoot 10 fps where this would be possible, except maybe a bouquet toss at a wedding.

Profoto B1 and B2s should be able to keep up at a pretty high output just fine at 10fps if you need that on strobes, but they are pricey.

I have reverse GAS with the rx1rII. I told myself I'd sell it so many times, but I can't part with it. Its such a fun camera and the optical quality is great. It's gone back to filling backup camera duties since I only have one body and its worked well other than the piss-poor battery life.

A fast 135 is always worth keeping. They aren't small, but they're not as bulky as 70-200 zooms. I'm really impressed with the Sigma 135 and am tempted to snag one...thinking of getting rid of the 70-200GM to fund that and an UWA, but will wait and see how well it works on the a7rIII.

the rotolight is a continuous light so there's no recycle time if i'm not wrong so shooting continuous burst is not a problem. i love it because what you see is what you get like natural light shooting. I just don't like how it blinds the subject though.

The problem with the rotolights based on Jason Lanier's videos is that they aren't nearly as bright as even a speedlight....so he's pushing the ISO really hard, which I prefer not to do.

The modelling lights on the xplor600 and ad200 help you preview the lighting as well. Kind of dim on the ad200, but the dual head seems to be brighter. The advantage here of course is that you get the full power of the strobes for the actual exposure, and have the LED's to preview the lighting.

A few shots from yesterdays sunset at La Jolla. Amazingly I managed to get through the whole shoot without getting any of my filters covered in water. BTW, the surfer in the third shot was completely unplanned. He just walked out and stood there. Blocking the shots of about a half dozen photographers, whose copse of tripods he had to navigate through to get to the end of the reef. Fortunately I didn't have an ND in and was able to catch him in a shot while the other togs were quietly cursing him for ruining their exposures.
