Hi all,

I've been eye-balling the Q-flash system but haven't made the leap yet. I really like the integrated design and the wireless concept. Does anyone use this system and what do you think of it? Any pros and cons you care to point out? I would be using them for weddings, on-site portraiture, as well as for outside modeling shoots and in my studio. I currently use Speedotron strobes but hate all the cords I have to string around to use them and without a generator I can't really use them for outdoor shoots that take me away from power unless I run three miles of extension cords. I also like the Freewire system by Quantum and would also appreciate thoughts on it as well.

Thanks for your time! Happy shooting and happy 4th of July!! Happy Birthday America!!

Good day!

Mike

They are a great flash.....I use mine with Norman 200B packs....I have the "old" QFlash X model ....they now have an X 2 one that is digital ready.....it is a good idea to look up that product on their website....and to ask a tech your questions...

Personally, I love it... I mount mine on a Strobo Frame....w/ my EOS 1n w/ E1 Boosters.......I never managed to use it for my RB 67's... It will weigh you down a bot....with the battery pack and all....+ I had to file away some metal on the bracket to get it to close down to the horizontal position with the rather tall TTL modual that mounts in the camera's hot shoe..

The exposures for an automatic flash are suprisingly good....and I have used it for fashion shows and night time sports where I was shooting slides... The modeling lamp is a super duper nice feature when shooting subjects ...like....couples dancing at a wedding reception where it is too dark to focus...let alone see.. It does use up a bit more power from the batteries when on but that's why you carry extra batteries in your bag.. Also, the audio beep to confirm exposure is a real + .......which you can quiet with an ear plug when in a wedding... the diffusion head is great as well the ease of shooting it off a ceiling....or a wall.. it is well worth the money IMO. So far, it hasn't broken on me....and I am not the nicest / most careful with my gear......it is built for guys like me who bang the crap out of their gear....bumping into walls,. people, tossing it into my trunk, ....setting it on my passenger seat and slamming on the breaks and having it smack into the dashboard......so far so good.............BTW, anyone interested in buying my used QFlash??

Brian,
What camera are you using it on? I usually love mine, but depends what I am shooting. When shooting in a gym it's been awful. Exposes for back wall and foreground is blown out. I had mine upgraded to a T2 Digital with the TTL adapter for the Fuji S2. It's better in most cases, but still problems when the back wall is far away. Even their sensor limit doesn't help much.
