ND filters. But with the 1 series cameras you can easily push the Einsteins to 1/400 sec if you frame with a small band in mind. Though I rarely use them like that because I can gang the 7 600’s I have, not that I bought them to gang, but they work well like that.With Einsteins, what do you do when you need high speed sync? Love my White Lightning Ultra 1800s, but the Godox AD-600 with HSS led me to put the Ultras on the shelf. The Ultras were pretty revolutionary when they were introduced. The Cyber Commander was a valuable upgrade, but once you get a taste of HSS it is hard to go back.
In the tests I have done HSS loses far too much power compared to Hypersync so I’d be very reluctant to move to HSS ‘studio’ lights. Far rather go to a Hypersync solution if I had the need. Having said that PCB have been teasing the Link light for quite a while now and it sounds like after testing it went into a bit of a redesign but is due soon. Maybe I’ll pick up one of them when it comes out to see if I need the capability.
