I'd be interested in knowing if that compact Pro reflector works well on an AD600

Just tried something that I may need to use and that is shooting at 10 frames a second it does not miss a beat at 1/16 power, at 5fps i lost one or 2 at 1/8 power but hit everything at 1/16 + 0.7, HSS it just about keeps pace at 5fps at 1/64 but no luck at 10fps

Can Godox hurry up and make a 400-watt compact version of this.

I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

I can get 2 Einsteins for this price. And the profotos go on sale for not much more.

I can't argue with you on the Einsteins price comparison, but as for the profotos, yes, the heads themselves may go on sale for not much more, but then you still need their trigger, which is another $400, and their modifiers are quite pricey. That's if you're getting into any of the systems new and assuming you need all the starter gear (trigger, mods, etc.). I own several Einsteins, and I love them, but after buying the first version AD600 and learning the system, for me, the Godox/Flashpoint trigger system is infinitely easier to use than the Buff cyber commander and my Canon wireless flash commander. Yes, you read that correctly. I prefer the sometimes-maligned X1T/R2 trigger to those. And now I have the R2Pro and love it.

Profotos OK but Godox expensive? Bees/Einstein don't do HSS. You buy Godox also when Adorama has a sale.:)

A rapid question for owners of both the new AD600 pro default umbrella reflector, and Godox's AD-B2 bracket for the AD200 : Is it possible to slide an umbrella shaft in the umbrella hole of the AD-B2 when the latter is fitted with the AD600 pro umbrella reflector ?

One thing that I find really annoying is this :

Why, Godox, why ? Why making so much progress with the flash tube / umbrella reflector, and then not bothering properly designing the umbrella hole ? Damnit !

A glimmer of hope is, as the article's author mentions, that this is a removable part. In fact I guess now that the whole mount can be taken appart. So perhaps a mod could solve that problem.

Even better would be to put the umbrella hole above the light, but that's another problem.
