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

Last few pages have also been showing some cool mount ideas for the regular bare bulb setups :)

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 :)
