About Flashpoint CS600

• A new case design from Adorama that is light in weight for the strength it provides. Carry your heavy power packs with all their cables or remove the dividers to carry anything from SCUBA equipment to glasswear. This new case starts with a strong & rigid but lightweight interior core of lexan plastic. The lexan is then covered with dense, shock absorbent closed cell foam that can protect even the most delicate equipment. The internal side of this "package" is covered with velcro compatible cloth, while the exterior is protected with a shell of puncture and abrasion resistant SOFTEX, a ballistic nylon material.
• This "bomb proof" case comes with moveable dividers for great interior versatility. 2" webbing is mounted to the long sides of the case and meet in the middle where the Velcro wrap forms a comfortable and strong handle. Use the attached "D" rings or half of the hand strap to attach this case to a hand cart. A strong YBS zipper secures the cover to the main case, and together with the large weather flap, protects anything inside. This is the case you've been wishing someone would make. Guess what, Your wishing is over!

One reason why the Flashpoint CS600 is popular is because of its Lightweight

Great case

This is a great bag that will hold beauty dishes, portable batteries, lights, strobes and other gear. It's tall and can be compartmentalized with the foam inserts and that is a plus. I brought this to carry larger beauty dishes, collapsed soft boxes and light gear. It's tall versus wide and very unique for a lighting bag. The bag will hold a lot of lighting equipment or just about any camera equipment. It doesn't disappoint. The only thing that is needed is an adjustable strap. Don't get me w...

Don't get me wrong, the fixed straps on the case work, but it would be easier to manage if it had an added adjustable strap you could use whenever you felt a shoulder strap would make it easier to carry. This bag is highly recommended.

This seemed to fit the bill well.Let's start with the pros:(Per Adorama)It fit all three lights, reflectors, and cables without a hitch! Awesome!It fit into the back seat of the car I was driving at the time without an issue! Sweet!It provided more than enough protection for how much I baby my gear! YES!It had carrying straps AND it had a shoulder strap for throwing it over the shoulder! Good deal!It has moveable dividers so I can make sure my gear will be snug! Oh man this just keeps getting better!So, at this point, I'm pumped! I'm ready to roll right? Right!I noticed something that I didn't remember reading on the site - it has a "foot" that runs the length of the case to keep it from sitting flat on the floor! NO WATER/ATMOSPHERE DAMAGE! YES!So I'm really ready to roll now!!! RIGHT?! YES!Not so much...I received the case and I immediately unboxed it and took it back to my gear.I opened the case and was let down immediately. The fabric covering the foam padding was so thin I could see through it. Bummer. I can live with that though. Then I got really down. The dividers have NO connection material at all. I mean none. They just fall all over the place. No securing velcro or anything.So I figured a way around this right? I would figure out the space I need and put velcro on the dividers (you know, like that really nice camera bag that you bought came with) and that would hold them in place. Then I thought about that thin fabric on the side. It's not sewn in well so it would probably tear and fray if I did that. Not cool. So I decided to not go the velcro route and just live with the case.I put the lights into the case (cables first, lights, and then reflectors on top) and they all fit well! Good job! My only gripe at this point was that they moved a little as the dividers moved. That's fine. I'll live with it. It's enough protection for what I want to do. So I'll roll. Now, the OTHER cons...Terrible shoulder strap. Bummer.Terrible carrying handles. Uhhh...how am I supposed to carry this again?Moving dividers!!!! OMG really? Stay in place!Fabric inside too thinI've had this sucker for a few months...at least since April I believe. I've taken it to almost every shoot that I've had. It held up great for two weeks. Remember, I BABY my equipment (I mean it all - aside from my camera - looks brand spankin' new).After two weeks, the shoulder strap was shot. Couldn't use it at all. I'll clip it on and after I sit it down on location, it falls off. I couldn't figure out why till I got to looking at the handles and where they connect to the case. This is also where they connect to the shoulder strap. It was coming loose! The "D" ring would not hold the strap anymore because it was only being held on by one side. The strap was slipping off through the split in the D-ring that is hidden by the strap connection. Bummer.So, switch to handles. After a month of carrying by the handles I notice that the connections are beginning to fray. What the...?! My handles look like they're coming off the side of the case! NO! NO! NO! Now I'm mad...I just spent [$] on a case that don't do what it says it will...Then...the dividers that I thought I could live with? Screw that. When I pull a light out? The divider falls over. When I put a light in? The divider falls over. It's not till you have all 3 lights and/or cables inside that the dividers stay straight and do their job. This takes TIME and when you're on a shoot for a client paying by the hour, time is NOT something that you have a lot of.The fabric inside has also begun to really fray and snag as I or my assistant place or remove the lights. So it's getting down to the padding now. No rough spots on my lights at all. It's just that the fabric is so thin that you cannot keep from tearing it.I would NOT recommend this case if you are a serious shooter that is looking for a durable case that will stand the test of a SHORT time and moderate use. If you plan to store the lights for a while and not use them or take them out often, then this is the case for you. It is small, can hold 2 lights (3 Einstein from Paul C Buff) and it has a nice shape to it and is aesthetically pleasing for the most part.

Great case for the $$$

Great size, excellent protection. Plenty of room for 2 or 3 heads plus other acessories. I just wish the fabric interior was a little more robust.

Large, but...

By

from Haslett, Michigan  -  Pro Photographer

The overall dimension of this case puts it on the large side. However because it has hard panels on all sides for protection, the actual interior space is much smaller. I intended to use this to transport strobes for location assignments. I want to carry two lights, at least one extension cord, power cords, reflectors, one softbox adapter, two barndoors, small carry case for radio transmitters, a gellyroll and some clamps. These all fit into a different softside case. But admittedly that case is way overpacked and bulging at the seams, which is also not good. This CS600 case forced me to remove one barndoor, clamps and the gellyroll. However, I'm also using the Flashpoint 1820A monolights, which are very large and that does make a significant difference. Two Flashpoint 1820A lights just fit in to the case stacked sideways, the two lights take up half the available space. I really like the protection this case offers, but it does force me to haul a second case most of the time. I would recommend this case for it's protection but with the caveat that it doesn't have as much storage space as you'd think given it's overall footprint.

Great case, but one downside

By

from New York, NY  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is a great lightweight case for holding monolights and other gear, but one complaint I have is that it does not come with a shoulder strap, nor does it even have clips on the side to put one on. It has D rings on the front/back, but not on the sides!
