Bobby, was it too bright outside for the RT to communicate with the flash/light?? Low battery possibly??

Just wondering what could have given you issues. Tap Rack and Go.....

No, it turned out I had changed some custom function on my triggers so that A, B. C groups get displayed on the main screen all the time unlike the default where moving the wheel will change position of A, B, C and then you select and change their power. I have no idea as to why I totally lost this. I hadn't used my strobes for almost 2 months so maybe that was the reason. Anyways when I come home, they all work fine. I just had to press the middle GR button to make appropriate group A, B, or C blink and then change power by adjusting the wheel. I need to make sure to carry the little manual with me next time.

That's the only gripe I have with the XT-1 controller/trigger. Since I shoot Sony I can't take advantage of the 32. That looks easier to use if shooting manual and HSS with Canon. Hopefully the Sony and Fuji variants will be available soon.

A little more flash. Modifier is SP Systems 37" Octa.
QUOTED IMAGE

A lot more flash as I was in the shade and no power control. Lowered hot bg here on the left side by using LR gradient. Maybe I should have gone 1/4000 shutter.

Was this with your 35 or 85? Looks like 85 but just checking......
