That's a normal PLM, with a new screw (the one that comes with it is a PITA). He has just made the shaft extend out the back (which you probably wouldn't normally do).

I just tested, reviewed and shot with the Cheetah CL-180, CL-360 and Lithium battery L-4500.

It all happens HERE (external link).

Thanks, I didn't know the shaft could move.

Man, those freebies clearly took long enough to arrive. The thread is six months old.

Huh?

dont have PLM use the softlighters but this has me curious kinda like a GIANT apollo this way :)
could you post a pic how you have it attached to the grip head :)
...

This is the mounting arrangement:

It's a 64" PLM but with the positioning shaft from an 86" PLM. The longer positioning shaft is required so that it extends past the tip of the umbrella and into the grip head.

Great Idea did you notice any difference when using it, is it more comfortable?

Silly question. One of my CL-Tx transmitters somehow reverted to "EV" value (5.0-5.3-5.6 etc) on the display instead of percentage ratios, which I prefer. I can't figure out to reset it and I can't find my manuals. Anyone help out a hapless bro?

From the manual:

The trigger set has two modes to display a flash’s power ratio.
1. 1/128~1/1: widely adopted in most shoe mount flashes.
2. 5.0~10: widely adopted in most studio flashes.
The two display modes can be switched over by pressing the Set Button and holding for 2s.

When you get to be my age one realizes that two old minds are almost as good as one young one. :-)

We have all the knowledge and experience stored, just can't get the file draws open sometimes. :-)

David, which camera are you using with the hypersync mode for the CL180? Have you found any difference if the native sync speed is faster or slower?

The reason I ask is because I've heard that a camera with a faster native sync speed is easier to use with hypersync.

I'd appreciate any input that you can offer.
