    That takes me back... I remember having a Quantum Q-Flash connected to my Mamiya rangefinder... Good times.

    I use Quantum T5Dr Q-Flashes with my Olympus system. Using a Co-pilot I can control the other Quantum units power levels and with use of the Quantum D10W can use TTL.

    I can't imagine using mini-monolights like this with an TTL system anyway. So I'm not too jealous.

    Probably better for your billfold too.But, oh the quality of the light compared to speedlights/flashes.

    I've been using the manual versions of these for over two years, and I field tested the preproduction version (180ws) for six months prior to launch.
    They completely changed the way I do my bridal portrait session.
    In fact, they changed the way I do all of my location work.
    I used to use bigger 600ws battery powered systems, but these are far more compact and "luggable".
    The image below was shot using a mix of 360ws & 180ws units on the subject, plus a shedload of speedlights scattered through the forest.

    er, no............ this wasn't a bridal portrait session!
