What is the recycle time compared to a Profoto B1?
Flashpoint XPLOR 600PRO: 0.01-0.9s Recycle
Profoto B1 & B1X: 0.1 – 1.9 sec Recycle (plus Quick Burst Mode: 20 frames per sec)
What is the setup for my Sony a7r2 and a7r3 cameras, to configure them for HSS? Do I simply set WIRELESS FLASH to “On?”
I have not been able to set up my new XPLOR 600 Pro TTL light to shoot stroboscopically. I am trying to do the setup with my R2 Pro S TTL transmitter, since I can control the flash with it for TTL/TCM, and manual modes. For some reason now I cannot find the MULTI mode.
