I ended up purchasing from this one as they claimed the fastest delivery. Transmitter and 2 receivers for legacy 360s. shipped last night according to them
The native 360 modifier mount is the same as the Quantum. i.e. the tube type mount that slides around the bare bulb and is clamped between the bulb and the head.Question, do the Godox/Cheetah/Flashpoint 360 lights use the Bowens S mount too or a different one? What are people using for light modifiers?
Guy,I ordered the AD360II-C TTL unit today. Should be all set now. One little niggle the TT685s could use a little more power. I'm sure the 860 is the same. It's me I have to get used too shooting higher ISO too. Old school
Or you can get adapters to fit the speed rings. :grin:I'll get excited when Profoto releases a TTL Air Remote for the Sony Alfa. I have too much invested in Profoto gear to switch. Hopefully they will see the potential market soon.
Adapters for Profoto mounts don't allow the modifier to slide on the strobe body for different light focus which is a major feature of Profoto, and in some cases adapters do not allow the light to project into the modifier far enough.Or you can get adapters to fit the speed rings. :grin:
It doesn't surprise me that many of the main stream lighting suppliers have just been gliding along, presuming that their customer base is a complacent as are they.
The 360II, should work the same way the 600TTL and 685 work when going to HSS. Automatically. The only reason one has to set the H mode on the old light is because if doesn't have the TTL firmware.very cool. Just got the AD360II in canon and no problem with my Sony transmitter . Now I want to replace my other AD360 or sell both kits and get the 600 watt unit. I have a job next week shooting environmental portraits. I'm taking this and the 2 685s. Now have to say I'm not the biggest TTL fan but here is the thing. I can put my main on let's say full , hair light unit at half and fill at half. Okay you can do that I in manual mode anyway but here is the bonus I can leave my setting like that all day long shooting in TTL I can change apertures without going to the packs and making power changes. This is huge. Your shooting a portrait at f8 let's say than you decide I'll shoot one at F2 well with TTL you have to do nothing your totally on the fly and can change all you want. You only have to stop for a different lighting change if say now you want full power on hair. The other thing you can mix and match different units without problems as long as you don't ask it to go beyond its max power.
David HSS is auto on the 685s but this it looks like I have to do it at the head I think. Have not tried it yet with camera
