I found the thread for diffuser for speedlights here but wanted to check out options available for bare-bulb flashes, specifically the Godox AD360ii.
I'll be traveling to Vietnam for 3 weeks in December 2016 - Jan 2017, and plan to backpack from the North to the South by motorbike/bus/train. I'd like to see what options are available for portable setups, but I'd be willing to sacrifice carrying additional weight if the diffuser is way better. I'll also have a nano-manfrotto light stand attached to the side of the pack.
This looks really promising, from the last thread, and I believe I can jimmy rig something to make the bare bulb flash fit in that mounting bracket.
Quality of light is very important to me, so ideally I'd want as soft light as I can produce.
In case you were asking, why bare bulb vs speedlights: I want the output to be able to overpower the sun, as well as easier HSS capabilities (I hate fiddling with ND filters, especially for travel). Currently my solution would be the Westcott collapsible umbrella but would love something with a bit more efficiency. A collapsible beauty dish looks promising as well, but wasn't sure if there were way better solutions.
Some uses for flash will be for editorial type portrait work in remote-areas I can get to by bike. I'll be using a 40L bag equivalent, or the Thule Covert for my main travels.
Wasn't sure if this was necessary, but for reference, I will be bringing the Sony A7RII, 24-70L II, 50L, 16-35L II, Ricoh GR.
I'd greatly appreciate any recommendations or insight from other experienced travel photographers. Thanks. (And yes I am aware my pack will be majority camera gear. Again, portrait and landscape work will be a priority)
