Hey guys, Ive been enjoying using HSS lately with my Yongnuo yn-568ex on weddings and engagement sessions. However sometimes I need more power but a speedlight can only do so much. What other options you guys use for outdoors HSS. I dont know much about new lightning equipment. Are there other options (preferably lightweight) out there that I dont know about?

Thanks in advance

By lightweight do you mean comparable to a speedlite? If so, your options are limited. As suggested above, CL360/AD360 is a good option but it's limited to 10 consecutive full-power shots in HSS mode before overheating protection kicks in. If you are OK with some added weight and would like more power there are more options like Phottix Indra (pack and head), Profoto B1, Rovelight600, etc. AFAIK these lights do not do HSS in the sense of pulsing like a speedlite though. They do hypersync but the results seem to be very good.

Correct me if Im wrong but you cant control the cl-360 via the Cheetah transmitter when using HSS. I saw a video that you need a trigger that supports HSS (like the yn622). How do you do it? Because what I love about the yn-568 is that I can control it with the YN-622N-TX from my camera.

Yes, you need another trigger such as Yn622 or Godox /Cheetah Cells II-C. With YN you will need two units: one on camera and one on CL360 whereas with Cells II, the on-camera unit can directly trigger the CL (it's compatible with FT-16 reveiver). In either case you can use the cheetah remote in hand for power adjustments.

Ok well I think the Cheetah would be the best option for me. If only profoto had a cheaper non TTL b2 that would be the perfect match for me.
