Still live deal: Flashpoint Zoom Li-ion X R2 TTL On-Camera Flash Speedlight $159
Posted by: pRICE cUBE

This can be used off camera in radio transmission mode up to 150 feet. The transmitter is sold separately for $58. This is more reliable than infrared which required line of sight transmission. The flash unit and radio transmitter allow TTL for more accurate results.

I believe I listed the Nikon transmitter. Make sure you get the one for your system in case the deal is still going.

Deal still looks like it is going. Make sure you get the transmitter and flashes for your specific platform.
[www.adorama.com]

The R2 system is the transmitter, I listed the above one for Nikon. Once you order a flash unit, look at the accessories that allow you to mount sift boxes such as the Bowen mount soft box. The adapter is 25 or so. The soft box is on sale for $30 or so. Then you mount it on a stand and are ready to go.

Deal is still live as of this morning.

The flashes come with a lithium ion battery and charger. He

It can be used on the camera hot show or on a stand.

The round shape causes round reflections on people’s eyes for portraits instead of rectangular with standard flash heads.

You can buy this attachment that allows you to use soft boxes and other light modifiers [www.adorama.com]

Softbox for that mount is $23 [www.adorama.com]

2 year warranty is nice also.

Based upon Adorama's countdown clock, this ends at 10AM EST.
[www.adorama.com]

But I digress... gee, thanks, pRICE. Your $159 "deal" cost me over $300.






(by the time I got done adding transmitters, stands, mounts, softboxes, modifiers) jest smiley

Now to learn how to use off-camera lighting.

R2 Is the remote transmitting system and TTL allows you to set the amount of light more precisely. Nikon and Canon charge for 400-500 for just one unit and Nikon only works with a few high end models. This Flashpoint system is much more affordable. The link above also has the rectangular units for $125 I believe.

The flash is now Adorama's "Deal of the Day".
The countdown clock reset to 23hours 58mins.. In case someone is still researching and doesn't want to rush.

This dome light modifier is only $11 [www.adorama.com]

The softbox i mentioned is a great deal but you will need that Bowen’s adapter. The dome modifier is a quick and easy and cheaper modification.

Wait, the dome modifier attaches with magnets on the rim? THAT'S HOT
Grrrr.... ok ok. One last purchase!

Bought the flash last night.
[www.adorama.com]

Bought the R2 Pro transmitter (old Mk1 version) for $30 this morning.
[www.adorama.com]

And now this dome modifier for $12. (on backorder at Adorama, Amazon has it in stock for same price)

That's it. NO MORE!

I almost bit on the higher end units but I don’t use these light setups too often. This price point and level of power and light weight are ideal for me. When I take portraits I like to be on the go and the higher end units weigh more. I need the portability over the power and I am using these mainly as fill lights.

What a deal. I finally pulled the trigger on a Nikon D750. Adorama had it as a deal/bundle for 996. Only $100 more for a new as opposed to the refurb deal pRICE posted a week ago. Now I will go for this flash and diffuser. Done! I am by no means a pro, but I got kids and indoor pics are inevitable. This camera and light will have me set for the next many years. Oh, and the sports - basketball, baseball, dance - this is gonna be good. hamster dance

That’s not for me. I am giving out advice that doesn’t apply to me.

A day later and the price is still $159.

The price of the Olympus Pen E-PL8 is $279, which is a lot lower than Amazon, making me think that it also was the Deal of the Day price. Not that I need it, but $279 for a M43 camera seems like an awesome deal. This may replace my Canon G5X as a pocketable walk-around, though I'd have to spring another $200 for the 14-42 EZ pancake lens to do that.
