Nice! The 600 is a great light. I have nothing bad to say about it. If you are going to use it on a boom, I highly recommend getting the extension head. The 600 plus a modifier can get unruly on a boom.I was a little bummed that I missed that.
But I ordered an Xplor600 for $349.
I think you had just sold yours and went to 200s.
I'll have a 600, 200 and V850(speed light).
Hopefully I find my usage warrants the size difference.
It's a xmas present from my family so I'll have to wrap it up until 12/25.
The suspense will be killing me I'm sure. ( :

And yeah, I did just sell mine. Actually taking them to the buyer tonight. The portability and versatility of the 200 will work a lot better for me. I picked up two of the pros, and two of the standard.
Adorama had a Flashpoint boom on sale for $20 when I ordered the 200s. It’s probably still that price. The cool thing with the 600 extension head. Is that with the monolight body in the included bag. You can hang it at the end of the boom as a counter weight.Good to hear.
Thanks for the recommend on the ext. head. I used one with the 200 and really liked it. I figured with the 600 it's pretty much essential.
I really need to pick up a boom. Probably next on the long wish list.

Four 200s is an awesome plan.
Can't wait to see your shots.
Check this guy out...
Thanks for the heads up Brian. I thought prices were going up, but that was only the Leica lenses.I need to slow down... but prices for vintage Leica mount lenses are lower than I've seen in 20 years. With Ebay, and prices down in Japan- picked up some rare lenses. A Canon 50/2.2, beautiful condition- $100 with shipping. This lens was made for only 6 months, not sold outside of Japan. A Canon 50/2.8 "Zebra" (smaller 34mm filters) for $77 shipped. And within the US- a Black Canon 50/1.8 for $60, shipped. The latter is very difficult to find with clean glass, this one is close to perfect. This finishes my Canon 50 collection. Calling it quits with the 50/2.8, 50/2.2, 5cm/2, 50/1.9, 50/1.8 early, 50/1.8 late (different optics), 50/1.5, 50/1.4, and 50/0.95. I've had 3 different 50/1.2's in the past, have worked on 50/3.5's and shot with them. The latter- if I run across one cheap...
There is nothing wrong with continuous lighting. I used to shoot with that type of lighting for quite a while.
Thanks - I've never really thought there was, but seems a lot more people prefer strobes. Anyways, new stuff for me to learn and it might help me get a bit better with product photos. Will see about people at a later date.
I will share my impressions - but I have to gather some worthwhile ones firstAre you going to do an impressions thread? Inquiring minds and all...
