I was looking for a self contained strobe with Hi speed sync, TTL and manual. I have used studio strobes for outside photography having owned an Paul C Buff Alien Bees or Einstein strobe with a lithium battery pack. I was also looking for a simple controller that could control my Nikon flashes. My experience was great, having used this unit on a wedding in an outdoor garden setting. The ability to control the X600II and the Nikon flashes was great. I was able to use both the TTL functions when having to work quickly and the Manual settings. I like having the battery part of the flash unit and I did not experience issues with it not firing. The controller allows you to control 5 groups with 3 of them in TTL and the other two in manual. This is much better than some of my other wireless gear that only allow you to control 3 groups. For Key, Fill, Background, Hair and other this is great. For the price it is definitely worth it. I will probably add another flash unit and a smaller flash unit for when I set up my studio. I expect that I will get faster with the units as I use them more. I am glad they work like advertised.
Great portability, relatively lightweight and solid construction. Provides all the power that I need for outdoor shots, even shooting in mid-day sun. Body and battery had a few scuffs when I opened the box. The Strobepro/Bowens mount seems a little sloppy with any modifier that I purchased as well. But, still sits sturdy. Not sure if that is normal or not. I do love the product, the 4 star rating is just because of the mount and scuffs.
This light is known under many different names as the manufacturer sells it under different names in different countries. However one thing that is consistent is the reviews of it - it's awesome! I bought the TTL version and also bought the extension head to make outdoor work on lightstands safer. The system works like a charm. Am super impressed with the radio control system. It's 1/4 the price of my Pocket wizards and does the same thing....and works with this light. StrobePro has been great to work with and so far I'm thrilled.
There's no question about this product. It works great, easy to use and built quality is also great. I chose this instead of other brands because the Customer Service is awesome. Jesse answered my questions almost instantly before and after sale.
