Cheetah Light v850

I want to brag about how how amazing the Godox lights are. They are branded under the names of Cheetah light, Newer,  Adorama Flashpoint  and several other manufactures. In theory, they are everything I could ask for in a portable lighting system: they are light weight, powerful and user friendly. I chose to  order from cheetah light as opposed to ordering from amazon or other online vendors. Edward Tang, the owner will give you a 1 year warranty and has the fastest customer service in this business should anything fail he also has employed a full time technician to specifically repair all of his lights. The cheetah light v850 kit includes a lithium battery, charger, usb receiver and a hotshoe transmitter.

I have tested this flash on the A6000, A7r and A7s and it simply will work on all three without fail. I am trying to get an video up to show you the recycle times on the A6000, incredible is the word I’ll use to describe!!

This is probably one of the cheapest solid solutions that you will find for the A7, A7II, A7r,s, and the A6000. The v850 paired with the cheetah light 180 and 360 is more power than you will probably ever use. The TX will operate and fire each light and you can set groups.

    Vincent - Do this flash capable of HSS and ETTL on Sony A7R? Does it overheat like the Sony HVLF60M Flash?

    Rob's Photography - Vincent, No the flash does not have any heat related issues. I had and use this flash for two years now both with Nikon and Sony. This flash is manual and has no TTL. It will have HSS with comparable triggers. Some have stated that the Youngnou 622’s will work but I have the Odin TX/RX and it will HSS only with the Sony A7 system and A6000.

    Vincent - Thanks for your reply.

    I’m ok with no TTL. So no HSS for A7R?

    Rob's Photography - Vinccent, Sorry for the confusion. It may have HSS with the Odin system though I have not experimented.. I do know that the Barebulb Cheetahlight/Godox 180 and 360 does have HSS on the 7r because I shot with that camera!, The Odin TX/RX must be used purchased to use….

    Vincent - I actually have used the Phottix Odin TX/RX with my Sony A7R and Sony HVLF60M combo. The HSS works but I cannot control the flash from the odin. it seems like compatibility issue. I returned the odin.

    I had a wedding last sat and I hated the Sony HVLF60M, it overheated on me for a gazillian times. That’s why I’m looking for alternatives.

    Rob's Photography - V, None of the current flash that I own, 850’s, Rovelights, or the Barebulb 360’s will allow me to control the power of those respected flash. What I have found, is that with the Odin RX on camera it will allow me to bypass the built is shutter speed of 160 when a flash is detected! SOOOO, if your light source has HSS and you place the Odin in HSS, you will have HSS, but you must control the power utilizing the device remote or on the strobe itself.
