This is my second speed lite - to go with my Sony HVL-F43M speed lite. The Strobepro unit is more powerful, and works every time. It also has a built in optical trigger (something the much more expensive Sony unit doesn't have), and I will use the Strobepro unit to light the background and have the Sony unit on camera to light the subject. If I am working with just one flash, it is this one! With the radio trigger, I can work much faster when I don't have to run around so much to adjust each flash. This unit is highly recommended!
Ten plus year professional photographer, I had no idea this place even existed. Have spent hundreds on branded speedlights during my career, all of which required radio slaves to work off camera, and aside from ttl, were just basic units in my kit. I shoot a lot of location portraiture, bringing out alienbees everywhere I go. Went in a couple weeks back to find their X60 manual unit on sale for $125...and I was impressed. But then when I started seeing it's abilities, from built in radio slave units to high speed sync up to 1/8000 of a second, I was sold. Bought two, shot an indoor rodeo and was able to make some super dramatically lit shots, so I was in the following week for two more. If you are looking for ease of use, professional units on a budget, this is exactly what you need.
I had to have this unit replaced where it would constantly lose radio signal connection with the controller and experienced a weird U-14 error while the zoom head kept going in and out repeatively. Strobepro seemed to not have seen this before. Strobepro sent me a replacement via courier and when I received it I sent the defective unit back prepaid by Strobepro. Can't complain about their support and customer service ! The speedlite itself seems well made and is now behaving the way it is supposed to. (my theory could be a bummed firmware with the defective unit). Otherwise so far ,so good, on this X60M HSS . If I did not experience my first one as defective I would give it 5 stars, unfortunately I did , thus the 3 stars
This speed light has been fantastic. Easy setup and I've already got some great shots. Definitely recommend
