FLASHPOINT EVOLV 200 – SILICON SKINS Released

EVOLV 200 Skins

 

Adorama Flashpoint have released clever new Silicon Skins for the eVOLV 200 and Godox AD200 Pocket Flashes.

If the eVOLV / AD200 were not already one of the most compact and convenient strobes to travel with, the new silicon rubber skins should make the flashes even easier to neatly stack together for transport etc.

As well as generally providing a nice buffer and good protection from scratches and light impact damage etc.

 

EVOLV 200 Skins

 

Available in 6 color options, you can personalize the strobes to your taste, or possibly even color code different strobe groups etc.

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY

 

Flashpoint Silicon Skins for the eVOLV 200 / AD200 are available from Adorama for $19.95.

    Hahahahaha I am rolling on the ground of laughing.

    It looks now like a poodle with a cover on.

    If your flash smacks the concrete and no longer works, the last thing you’ll do is laugh. 🙂
    I like it. Looks cool. Price is fair too. I don’t have an AD200, but if I did, I would defiantly buy one.

    LOL it should fit perfectly in an S-bracket. (Not)

      get an AD-B2 dual bracket instead… even with one AD200 in it, it gives you 1/3 stop more power, (as it’s not open to the back), as well as a modelling light… and you’ll have no mounting headaches

      Ok I checked with Flashpoint and they said if you remove the rubber from the to clamping plate the eVOLV /AD200 will fit nicely with the skin attached.

    I like the idea. I always colour coordinate my lights, it’s easy to tell which group its in but i guess they will be no using of an S-bracket with these sleeves.

    Great idea! With it’s shape and smooth surface, they can’t be the easiest things to get a grip on. I used to use a Galaxy S7 and I would regularly mis-handle it. I’d pay even a little more if I can get my logo imprinted on them too. Maybe the logo in a different color too.

    I love the idea. I currently use children’s ABC flash cards to hang on my light stands to identify which group my lights are in. I simply hang them from the light stands. But I will get three of these in different colors to help me identify groups.

      I use those urethane bracelets. #1 is orange, 2-3-4 are “RGB”, #5 is multicolored. #6 is nothing.

    Anyone else have issues with the power switch for the eVOLVE 200? Adorama isn’t responding to any of my emails, but basically I have to toggle it like over 100 times (no exaggeration) to finally come on. Quite frustrating!

    I like it..lol.
    I have one AD200 and will get one of these jacket 🙂 Looks cool on it

    Good idea, but pricey for what it is.

    UPDATE – I checked with Flashpoint regarding fitting the S-type bracket, and they said if you remove the rubber from the to clamping plate the eVOLV /AD200 will fit nicely with the skin attached.

    Great idea! My AD200 mounted on a stand falls. The battery got ejected and the case slightly opened. I put everything back in place and the unit continue to work ;-). Can you fit two AD200 in the AD-B2 with this protection?

  14. Scoob 4 months ago

    I have two of these awesome flashes.

    If I put one of these condoms on each one will they still fit in the B2 head?

    I had no idea there was a problem with these flashes mating. Should I keep them separated until I get them protected?

  15. Jonathon 4 months ago

    Kinda cool idea. At least you should be able to set it on a table standing up and it not press the buttons.

    However, I would much prefer a 800ws extension head using an extension head similar to the aD600 but this would be 800ws with a cord coming down that breaks into 4 connectors and a bag that holds 4 AD200s.

    Please read this and please push this idea.

    I can confirm that the skins do fit into an S Bracket once you remove the rubber bumper from the tightening platform on the S Bracket as was shown in Flashhavoc’s link. The fit is as tight as using an S Bracket without the skin, but with the modified rubber bumper on the tightening platform. And since it is tight it can slightly move the skin away from the head as you slide it into the S Bracket.

    My use for the skins may be different than some others. I don’t plan on using S Brackets any longer with the AD-B2 units. But the skins will be excellent with my assistants. I will personally set up each light on a channel/group and place different colored skins on those AD200s. I can then say on site, “Pass me two of the orange AD200s.” and I know what channel group they’re on. The added grip of the silicon will allow me to not stick grip tape all over my strobes like I have done in the past.

    I so appreciate the accuracy of the cut outs for battery/USB slot/etc. They are all perfectly aligned. If this seems like something ‘all things should have’ one of the BIG reasons I have not purchased a thing from LPA (Pocket Wizard) is because of the absolute crummy manufacturing they did for their original FlexTTL units for Canon flashes. Their band aid solutions and eventual charging for their ill made ‘fixes’ told me all I needed to know about poor customer service and lousy execution. Anyway everyone gets to vote with their money, but for me the advantages are worth the price for my workflow.

    @Mark, the design by LPA is better than Godox in my humble opinion. I would love Godox in LPA design and there is nothing easier to operate than an AC3 and you have to press several buttons with Godox what can be archieved easier and even if you are blindfolded.

    I would love it if they produced these for the PB960 batteries.

    Anyone knows how to order it to Europe? (Adorama would ship it for $70 haha).
