Brilliant! Pun intended.
I bought two of the CITI 600 ttl heads a year ago at The Photography Show. I knew they would be good as they were strongly recommended by two highly respected friends. How right they were. They are well made, easy to handle and have so many advantages over older style studio heads. Having been a Bowens user for decades, I was pleased that my Bowens modifiers would all fit but that was just the start. Older heads just bashed out a pulse of light. You could adjust how much but that was it. These are genuinely TTL and will synch for HSS Flash. With the ST-IV trigger you can 'freeze' the TTL setting before moving the camera, which can be very useful.
Best of all, they are battery powered and have an optional remote cable so you can power the head with the battery pack on the floor or in a handy little bag, also available.
It is worth taking a little time to get to grips with the ins and outs of the flash head menu and the trigger menu. There is stuff to learn. You CAN just take them out of the box and get some use out of them but you will be missing out on a lot of functionality.
I have been so pleased with my two that I have nought a third and am lusting after more!
Very highly recommended. They are brilliant. Don't look straight at them on full power. OUCH!

Stephen Perry's blog of France with Zara Watson – High Speed Sync with Pixapro’s CITI600.
With 600ws of flash on tap and a massive 8700mAh built in battery to power it, the PiXAPRO CITI600 sounds like a very capable flash head on paper. Throw in the potential for HSS and TTL if you’re a Canon or Nikon user and that unit is starting to sound very promising.
Jake Hicks explains everything you need to know about TTL as well as using it with the PIXAPRO CITI600 Flash Head, including images of some test shots.
In this blog, we will compare the specifications and attributes for the PIKA200, CITI400 PRO, CITI600 TTL and CITI600 PRO
Battery Powered Flash is possibly the most commonly used lighting, due to its versatility and the ability to be used on locations once believed too difficult for Photography. In this Blog, we take a look at three different battery powered flash unit, the PiXAPRO CITI600 TTL, PiXAPRO CITI600 PRO and Elinchrom ELB 500 TTL, to see how these three lights compare against each other and which would be the best option for you.
Whilst many people may think that Photography is a very simple and general subject, it actually divides into a wide range of different styles and subjects. One style, which possibly isn’t as widely known as others, is Equestrian Photography. Taking images of horses can be quite complicated due to the unique subject, so in this blog, we take a look at what equipment is recommended to achieve high-quality Equestrian Photography.
