Ok, hope I have this posted correctly this time... this was a great deal posted in a photo group I'm apart of and its an excellent deal on excellent strobe. Available for Canon or Nikon (the new Pro transmitter hasn't come out for other brands yet).

FLASHPOINT EVOLV 200 DEAL!!!

Nikon - https://www.adorama.com/fplfev200...laid912974
Enter Coupon Code: FJHBF2017N

Canon - https://www.adorama.com/fplfev200...laid912974
Enter Coupon Code: FJHBF2017C

For $530 you get:
• 2 Evolv 200 kits
• The twin head adapter
• Black silicone case
• Blue silicone case
• New R2 Pro transmitter

This deal is exclusive! Definitely don't want to think twice about this deal if you have been wanting the eVOLV system. This combo would usually add up to about $800 so I couldn't pass it up for $530 Smilie.

So is this any good than this one?

It looks like it can pair to power a larger light output and can be used separately? I think it's better if it can be separated

Yes that is also an excellent light, but it is bigger and heavier. I actually own both of these and they're part of a great system. They can even be used together and be controlled by the same transmitter.

The Xplor is 600 ws which is enough to use in broad daylight in most cases -- its quite powerful especially for a battery powered strobe. You can use 2 of them combined for 1200 ws but consider the cost and weight to do this -- not many I know use this setup very much because the single strobe is usually enough. The Xplor is great, but it is substantially larger and heavier than a speedlight, for comparison (but its also 10x more powerful than a typical speedlight)

On the other hand the eVOLV is 200 ws - which makes it 1/3 as powerful as the Xplor -- this will be fine for overcast days or of course indoors. You could possibly use it in mid day sun and keep up with the daylight if you're very careful with how you use it. The cool thing with this kit is it allows you to combine 2 of these strobes for a total of 400 ws which is 2/3 as powerful as the Xplor. The other consideration is that the eVOLV is smaller and lighter.

There's no right or wrong -- theyr'e both great with a ton of features and really good pricing compared to what else is out there. This is by far the best value of whats available now, IMO.

So hopefully that helped, even though there's no 'best' -- its more of a 'best for what you want to use it for'

Also if you're just getting into these remember you'll want a solid light stand, a sandbag for it, and at least one lighting modifier (umbrella, softbox, octobox, or similar). The list of light accessories keeps going and going, if you want it to.

There are some great groups on FB with a lot of support on these if anyone wants to join after buying one of these strobes, just let me know.

Very well written note. I have the flashpoint 360 and shot couple engagement photo session and it barely fights bright daylight, so 400 probably still too weak, but it's nice to have 2 light source when wanted for some fun, and it comes with a transmitter. I met a photog that brought a 200 as a fill light on a mid day sun so I think it's enough if you're in a shade or overcast even with 200. Like you said, depend on the use, both were good deal... Tough choice...

Yes, the 360 is their other popular strobe -- I think if you have that already and shoot outdoors in daylight you will like the Xplor 600 very much.

I follow a wedding photographer (robhallphoto on ig and rob hall photography on youtube) who does a lot of lighting and a lot of technical reviews as well who now carries two eVOLV strobes to weddings and doesn't use his Xplor at all. I have a feeling he intentionally places his subjects in shaded areas which allows two eVOLV strobes combined for 400ws to do fine in that scenario. He also has the option to separate the two strobes indoors to use a 2 light system.

No matter how you go about it, the Godox / Flashpoint system is really pretty awesome right now.

Sorry I only landed here because I thought we were talking about Barry Allen's mistake in creating Flashpoint. Go Team Flash!

Too bad that the deal is not available for Olympus, Sony, and Fuji. This is understandable, however, because the Flashpoint R2 Pro has not been released for those brands.

If you want, you can order one without a transmitter using the coupon code FJHBF2017A which should bring it down to $500. You can then add a non-Pro version of the transmitter from here:
https://www.adorama.com/fprrr2tp.html

Although it may be cheaper just to buy either the Nikon or Canon variant and sell the transmitter as the price difference after coupon is only $30.

How did you guys get the coupon code? Didn't see it on their Black Friday marketing or emails.
