2 different units RF60 Flash
I have bought one unit from a store here in Ireland and one from Gadget Infinty.
This morning I was putting velcro on one of the units to attach gels and noticed that one unit lowers its flash head more than the other.
Did anyone see that there would be an update to the RF60 units for this feature?
I didn't read about it on any forums and can't find any reference to it anywhere online!
I have asked for an exchange as its still under warranty and am waiting on a reply.

Do you not like the additional downward angle?
I think it is a feature, rather than something that would prompt replacement.
On-camera, or with a light modifier, it can often be useful to have this extra downward angle.
I always thought the limited range of the original RF60 was a small downside, not a biggie, but nevertheless a small and somewhat avoidable limitation.
The flash head indeed can be tilted lower. We made this change, amongst few others, as running change to improve the user experience of the RF60.
Unfortunately, we can't replace your existing unit with the one that tilts lower since it's only a minor running change. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
I have arranged to swap it with someone who has the older models so all is good.
Thanks again and feel free to share your works with us on Flickr / Facebook
Thanks to the RF60 users who feedbacked us, we simply do what we can and try to improve the overall user experience of this product.
Does the flash head have a wider swivel range now?
Whilst the tilt lowers approx 7 degrees.
