Went back to the Flash Havoc posting on the AD-B2, and in the comments, qliq notes that the LED will light with a single AD200 connected:no definitive response on that yet
To answer the question concerning the functionality of the modeling light with just ONE eVOLV:
Yes! The LED lights with just ONE eVOLV200/AD200 mounted on the TWIN Head.
I think I read there's a C.Fn setting that can change that for the AD200. Not finding that reference now.I used the AD200 in my new 38" Glow Parapop yesterday afternoon here in San Diego at 3:30pm in full sun (man is sun bright here in San Diego - sarcasm), I was quite impressed with the light - except the rear AV Panel. It was near impossible to verify the settings on the pocket flash. Will have to make some kind of hood for it.
I just added an AD-B2 to my preorder from Adorama. Also have an extra battery coming for the AD200.
- I upgraded the firmware and saw an improvement in the FEC with the TT350o as the master controller.
- The X1T-N can change power settings down to 1/256, but the AD200 only goes to 1/128.
I have been using the 28" ParaPop for about 2 years as my go to modifier for the AD360 and now the AD200. I put a Bowens ring on mine and mount via the S bracket. I shoot in full sun a lot and the 2nd inner white baffle of 70% area coverage helps get higher f stops in bright sun situations as it allows the light to spill around the silver perimeter and make the subject pop a bit more vs. using the full outer baffle.How are you finding the Parapop compared to your other modifiers?
Think it comes down to how much you want to use the AD600 with the AD-H600 extension head (boom or VALS use), whether or not Godox comes out with extension heads for the AD200 (ganged or not), and how much you need the versatility of 2 separate AD200s vs. the AD-B2+2xAD200. The AD-B2+2xAD200s combo is still going to be heavier and bulkier and less robust on the end of a stick than an AD-H600....Heck, give the cost of a TTL AD600 is > this + 2x ad200s... I'm debating my future plans to pick up an ad600.
