Starting this thread to get recommendations on off camera lighting for outdoor portrait shoots. I shoot the Sony A7r II. Looking for a two light setup. Battery powered as I may not have access to power source in the places I shoot. Please also suggest umbrella, softbox options and stands for the lights.

I just bought two of these flashes with transmitter, they are fantastic value. Good for 650 shots, at full power on one charge with 1.5 sec interval. Here is a link to an article about them. You can get good deals on ebay.

I use the larger ones, AB600 TTL HSS flashes. They recycle extremely fast and are 600 watts. For outdoor shooting they're the best bang for your buck

The V860ii-S are also amazing, and I don't think they would overheat from normal usage. Though to overpower the sun in broad daylight you'll need a few of them compared to the studio strobes

I second the Godox flashes. Pair with a photek softlighter or a beauty dish. High speed synch is a breeze with these flashes paired with the Sony a series bodies too.

Get a Godox AD360II for canon and buy a Sony transmitter. This is not a shoe mount even though one is there it's too heavy

Manu,
When I was in the market for a few flash units with remote firing capabilities, Godox wasn't around. I used to use 3 Sony units first but didn't like the optical only triggering and I ended up with 3 Phottix Mitrox+ and their radio trigger system. I took two flash units and the wireless trigger to Venice, Mexico and to Costa Rica, among others; I fired flashes remotely on more than just a few occasions and so far, the system has performed just fine.
