Through-the-lens exposure metering (TTL) is no longer a feature exclusive to shoe-mount flash units or speedlights. A number of different manufacturers have introduced full-sized studio lights — either mains or battery powered — with support for automatic TTL metering, wireless power adjustment and even high-speed sync (HSS) letting you use flash at fast shutter speeds.

    Great! Nice list. Now someone should make an Exell sheet with the comparisons :). Or even better, review them all at once 🙂

  • Missing the Jinbei HD610.

  • The Flashpoint is a rebadged Godox Witstro AD600.

    you missing the triopo F1-400 for example, and worth to mention that there is a few more interesting options without TTL like the broncolor siros L or the priolite. TTL is useless anyway.

    Godox Quicker Series II

    Also I found out that you will be able to have an ac adapter for the AD600, best of both world

    Id love someone to take them all apart and compare the components.
    Ive spent weeks trying to decide which lamps to buy to light a huge white cove. I need colour consistency, fast flash duration 6000+ , fast recycle times even at high power, and reliability ! I am not too worried about TTL.
