The Adorama XPLOR 600 Pro TTL is sort of an upgrade over the original version.
We rated the Adorama XPLOR 600 monolight very highly when we reviewed it; and now we’ve got sort of an upgrade. The new Adorama Flashpoint XPLOR 600 PRO TTL monolight is apparently not being billed as an upgrade; but instead it’s going to live alongside the original. Why? I’m sort of not sure.
What’s unique about the Adorama Flashpoint XPLOR 600 PRO TTL is the fact that it has the capabilities to use more TTL transmission types, has a more powerful modelling lamp, and according to FlashHavoc there’s more power. You can clearly sort of see this in the images along with a few cosmetic updates. For example, the new Umbrella reflector is more rounded to emulate the look of what Profoto does.
It also uses the R2 radio system on top of providing TTL support for Micro Four Thirds, Canon, Nikon, Sony and Fujifilm. It also claims recycle speed of under 1 second and HSS up to 1/8,000. No word specifically on flash duration though. What’s more, it’s balanced to what Adorama is claiming is a steady 5600K. I’ll be very happy to test that out.
More features are below. The new light is around $899. But the original light’s price has dropped down quite a bit.
