I am looking at a Flashpoint 360 and wondered if any other readers use one for real estate? I will soon be shooting with a Sony A7 Mark III and continue to use my Nikon with the latest SB flash can I get the Nikon to function as a slave off the Flashpoint. If I am off camera how do I trigger the Flashpoint? Will my existing radio triggers work? Lastly do they work well in a real estate environment?
I don't have any direct experience with the Flashpoint 360 but a little research on the Flashpoint shows the following:
- The Flashpoint 360 is triggered at least with the Flashpoint triggers. Since radio triggers frequently work across different brands for these manual flashes it's likely that some other brands of radio triggers will trigger it too.
- Depending on what model Nikon flash you have if it has an optical triggering capability (many Nikon flashes do) you would be able to trigger your Nikon flash optically.
- Your existing radio triggers may well work the Flashpoint but it's impossible to even research without knowing specifically what triggers you have.
- Rich Baum did a nice little review a few months ago of his experiences using Flashpoint EVOLV 200 and 360 for real estate. So yes, Flashpoint flashes work well for real estate.
Here is a review of the Flashpoint 360 from several years ago. Is anyone using a Flashpoint 360?
