Thanks again for your helpful posts. I have wanted to learn how to better use lighting, and you're providing some excellent pointers.

For what it's worth, I see that Adorama has a Godox compatible controller with Bluetooth available under the Flashpoint brand ... http://flashhavoc.com/flashpoint-r2-pro-mark-ii-transmitter-released/

And here is the smartphone app . https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/flashpoint-r2/id1434289573?mt=8

Thanks Jeff, i missed that, its been a busy winter, so much to learn and so little time.

From reviews, the app seems to need more development, but it's a good start. When it's time for me to update my setup I am hopeful I will get what I want.

Godox seems to brand that is most active in developing their flash system. If my current flash setup were eaten by a crocodile I would replace it with a Godox system. However my current system does what I need it to do, so no need to visit the exotic pet store just yet.

I'm taking a hard look at the Flashpoint version of the gear. They offer various 2 flash kits that look well suited to my needs.  There's also a round head speedlite.  Very rich system with lots of options.
