I would definitely want one & sell one of my AD200 and/or AD600. 400 watts is a good compromise on portability and power.

Available for pre-order $650 on Adorama

This might be of interest to me as in my small "studio" area an AD-600Pro has way more power than I need plus it's a lot larger in size and weight I assume. Plus in studio it would be faster and more convenient to use than setting up two AD-200s on the double bracket.

Like!

But it makes me think the 360 might be going away.

If this thing can use the same remote heads as the 600 that would really make for an amazing product line.

Thanks for the link. The image of the hand next to the unit make it really portable. I would probably sell my AD200 & AD600 and pick one of these up plus an extra battery for wedding/engagement.

If it's ~$500, it's an instant buy for me.

The AD600 has a remote head, the AD200 has a remote head, and most likely, the AD400Pro will have a remote head.

Yes but the salient point being that it hopefully shares the same remote head/flash tube/accessories as the AD600 Pro so we don't have to buy a new set for every different version they release.

Yes exactly.

And, did I miss news about AD200 remote head? The 2 to 1 thing doesn't count.

Oh, duh. I was thinking about the other bowens mount design and forgot about that thing.

the Bowens adapter looks like it may permit keeping the flash tube well into the modifier with the special bowens adapter ring that Cheetah sells.

Godox mount with bowens adapter?

Sounds like a pain in the neck waste of time and again pushing the bulb back into the modifier opening.

Looks like a different bulb = different remote head accessories

Looking at the pictures I think it'll be OK, looks like there's enough clearance so much closer to the AD600 Pro design rather than the AD600B.

Different voltage battery too, I was lamenting elsewhere that the accessories can't be shared between models. Would make life a lot easier (and cheaper) to buy one set of replacement batteries, tubes, extensions etc.
