I NO LONGER RECOMMEND THIS LIGHT FOR ANY HAND HELD LIGHTING APPLICATIONS. Please see HERE for updated review info.
While the recent Flashpoint R2 system (including the XPLOR 600) has garnered much of the attention within the portable, powerful lighting realm, there is a new family of options that may prove to be just as valuable.
The new Orlit Rovelight family of units are ruled by an extremely powerful duo of transceivers (although not yet perfected); the TR-Q6 and the TR-612. The Orlit Rovelight RT 601 (non-TTL) and 610 (TTL) will no doubt prove to be major players in the field of powerful, portable, cordless lighting solutions one can hold in their hand.
Update: Response from the official folks from Flashpoint at Adorama: "Settings on the remote will always override. If you want to remotely control the remote you can use the app though." It seems like what is being said is the flash is actually supposed to work like this (i.e., it always fires at the power that is set on the remote no matter what you set it to on the flash unit).
