I need to know if I could place it at about 10 ft from the model and get good results at f11 1/250th @ISO 100 with a softbox. Have you tried it this way? Thanks in advance

About 18 months ago I tested my AD 360 and AD180 with 14 of the different light modifiers I own. At 10' and Full power with the AD360, the following will give you f/11 or greater at ISO 100 and 1/250ss:
-5" stock reflector bare* or with 1* or 2 slip in diffusers
-Godox AD-S7 18" fold up BD, bare and with standard metal inner plate
-Cheetah Q Box/Lastolite Ezy Box 24" square pop up soft box, bare and with inner diffuser only
-Elinchrom Maxilite*
-Fotodiox 48" Octabox, bare and with inner diffuser only
-Paul Buff 54" PLM silver, bare*
-Wescott 43" Orb sliver, bare*

*These will give you f/18, which means they will give you f/11 at 1/2 power and thus reduce the recycle time.

I have a 36" Rice Bowl and Glow 28" Parapop and I believe both of those would be close due to the silver lining and the inner diffuser allows light to pass around the perimeter of it. But I haven't tested them yet.

Similar to Specfoto test results, with my AD360, iso 100, 1/125, the PLM silver 64" with on-axis speedring, gives f/18 at 11 to 12 feet.

Nice one Scott.
I had no idea a 190 could cover a full length at 4 feet.
I presume you had it feathered toward her tummy to get the full length coverage.

190 cm, about 6' 3"

Finally I got to purchase the AD 360 (the TTL version) and I´m more than satisfied with the results. Here is an axample covering a music festival. Flash on camera. Heavy but...

I had be at full power with a 360x in a RB190 at about 4 feet from the model to light in full sun.

I realize it's been a while, but this looks like it was with at least one layer of diffusion, an idea what your set up was?

Glad you're enjoying the new unit.

Standard reflector? Have you tried just a bare speed light? In that range it might be a more manageable light.

Using a 43" Phottix Luna folding octabox, and shooting ISO 100 and f/4 (no HSS) - this was around 1/4 power if I recall correctly. The light was about 5 feet away I think?
