I have the Yongnuo 560iv with 2 slaves and one trigger. Looking to add HSS
I'd suggest looking at the Godox lineup, specifically the Godox TT685s / Flashpoint Zoom TTL R2 (the Flashpoint being the same flash but rebranded in-house by Adorama) and the Godox V860ii / Flashpoint Zoom Li-on TTL R2. The first pair are AA-battery powered and thus much less expensive, under US$90, and the latter pair are, as the Flashpoint name hints, powered by an included rechargeable Lithium ion battery pack. For off camera use, you'd also need the Godox X1-Ts / Flashpoint R2 on-camera transmitter.
I've been using the Flashpoint-branded AA-powered versions with generally good results so far. The AA versions do seem a little slow to recycle though, so no high speed burst shooting with them.
What Steve @Hawkman said
It's not super cheap, but I like the Cactus. They have a trigger specifically made for Sony, with flashes that have built-in receivers.
+1 for the Godox, maybe have a look at the AD200 if it's for ocf only.
+2 for the Godox
Godox is the way to go but buy them from Adorama. Adorama's are the EXACT same flashes for the same prices but you get good service and if you ever need it, repair. Many of the Godox sellers on Amazon won't even reply to an email if you ever need service. I'm sure there are some good sellers on Amazon but why take the risk?
I had a boo boo
^ That 860ii rocks!!
Congrats! You’ll love that V860iis - you’ll forget when you last charged the battery
so I knew I wanted the fast recycle.. but i had no idea it would be so instant... pretty much in love at first sight....
the only sad story is the A1 unit only works with iOS at the moment (was released august last year, and their site said the android app would be released at the end of the month) (that was nearly a year ago.. still no android app.....) that said. i'm patient. And from what i've seen of their other products may be worth waiting a bit more.
I'll hold onto the A1 until my 30 day return window is up if no android app by then.. i may return for in store credit. (yes.. i bought these at my local camera store b/c A) fuckin A they carry them and B) they are becoming a service center for godox products! sweeeet sauce
Too bad about that A1. Looks like a blast.
This was an interesting video. Came across it today when I was having basically the same issue. Maybe someone else will run into this and find it helpful. Ambient light override when flash is connected
