    I have spent a lot of time with the Cheetah Barebulb Flash and Speedlights during the last couple of months and I must say they are the perfect on-location lights. They are powerful and portable. If there is one thing I find missing about these lights, I would say is the modeling light. What I love most about EVFs is that they give a live preview of what your shot will look like before you fire away. Because of my preferred style of shooting and the settings I like, all I see is black which makes composing through the evf difficult. I decided to try out these monolights because it integrates with my existing lights perfectly. Just thought I would share my review of these affordable lights with the m43 community, since it has worked so well with my E-M1 and E-P5

    Ed has a new unit coming out cl-600
    Led modeling lamp and use same triggers etc..
    Battery like a quadra ! Can't wait to get one of these !
    Will convert my elinchrom to new mount keep my deep octa fireball and might pick up some beauty dishes again !
    I have some converters I use with my cheetah but hate the bulk etc... So don't bother to much
    But this will be awesome for me and the led modeling lamp !
    Keeping the 360 and 850 for when less power portability is needed but will be a nice main light with modeling light when I need it

    Nice to have a plugin option though if you have a studio :) 

    When I work with lighting turn my evf setting so it's not what I see but steady ? Forgot the name :) 


    Basically will be like this in the link Ed has a couple things to test on his first

    I saw that article, Happyfish. I am super excited to see Lencarta (well, godox really) coming out with really cool and highly useable products. I would be the first to buy from Ed when he has finished his Quality control testing

    Glad to see a modeling light coming :)  was going to get a small basic led video setup to mount inside my softboxes :) 
    Hate at a wedding not having enough light excited about going broke :)
