The bulb looks like a Quatum, I need to look at these. Thanks.
Are there a ttl adapter for them ? I have been using the Quantums for stage events (graduations) for reliablilty. I guess I don't need ttl, just a way to fire them from the hotshoe.
I see there is a High-Temperature Protection function and make the recycling time about 10 to 15 seconds. This is what I don't like. I can fire the Quantums all night at full if need be. I am supirsed because with this type of bulb I didn't think it would be an issue.
No TTL for them. These are manual flash only, which is exactly what I want in an off-camera type light. You can fire them from your hot shoe using the transmitter that comes with the unit. You can also use pocketwizards or other radio triggers as well. You could use a pocketwizard to fire the light and the Cheetah lights transmitter, in your pocket, to make power adjustments to any Cheetah light.
As for the thermal protection, here is what another tester wrote about his experience with the light.
"Regarding thermal protection: Yes, the CL-180 has it. Originally it was fairly agressive kicking in after 50 full power flashes in rapid succession (meaning at 3-5 second intervals). This was felt to be a potential problem and was raised as an issue during beta testing with the manufacturer. In response, the limit was increased to 75 full power flashes in rapid succession before thermal protection kicks in. There's a thermometer icon on the flash LCD to indicate protection has been triggered. The flash can still be fired at that point but recycling is slowed to 10 seconds or so."
