Godox Witstro AD360 II-C Review (released Oct 2015)
Powerful bare-bulb flash head, guide number of 80m at ISO 100 using standard reflector, E-TTL II, HSS, Godox X radio wireless (master and slave). External lithium-ion battery. Great for shooting outdoors in bright light.
Godox Witstro AD360 Review (released 2013, no longer in production))
Powerful bare-bulb flash head, guide number of 80m at ISO 100 using standard reflector. External lithium-ion battery. No E-TTL or HSS. Requires optional radio receiver for wireless control. Replaced by the AD360 II-C.
Godox AD300 Pro Review (released Apr 2020)
This flash looks more like a mini studio strobe than a regular speedlite but is does run off batteries and is still compact and lightweight enough to fit in a camera bag. It also delivers a very powerful 300Ws flash as well as having E-TTL and HSS. It is compatible with the Godox X-series of radio triggers.
Godox AD200 Review (released Apr 2017)
Powerful portable flash with interchangeable flash head (bare bulb or speedlite head). Guide number of 60m at ISO 100 using bare bulb with standard reflector, E-TTL II, HSS, Godox X radio wireless (slave only). Powered by a lithium-ion battery.
Godox AD200 Pro Review (released Apr 2019)
Pro-version of the popular Godox AD200 (reviewed above) which now includes a Colour Consistency Mode offering a variation of only +/- 100K across all flash power outputs making it particularly suitable for product/commercial photographers. There are also a couple of other improvements such as a slight increase in recycle time but generally very similar look and spec to the cheaper AD200.
Godox AD100 Pro Review (to be released soon)
Looking like a scaled down Godox AD300 Pro body but with a round Fresnel flash head similar to the Godox V1 this new addition to the Godox family is aimed at the highly portable off-camera flash market particularly suited to wedding / event photographers requiring a little extra power. Similar spec to the Godox V1 (reviewed below) but a tad more powerful and with a cooling fan to prevent overheating.
Godox V1 Review (released Apr 2019)
This is the new round-head flash from Godox which appears very similar in design and specification to the much more expensive Profoto A1 flash. It is power by a lithium ion battery for excellent recycle time. 28-105mm zoom head, E-TTL II and HSS. Uses the Godox X radio wireless communication system. Excellent build quality.
Godox V860 II Review (released 2016)
Similar to Canon’s 600EX II-RT but with Godox X radio wireless and uses a lithium ion battery for faster recycle time. Guide number of 60m at ISO 100 and 200mm, zoom range 20-200mm, E-TTL II and HSS.
Godox TT685C Review (released 2016)
Similar to Canon’s 600EX II-RT but with Godox X radio wireless. Guide number of 60m at ISO 100 and 200mm, zoom range 20-200mm, E-TTL II and HSS. It’s pretty much a V860 II that runs off 4x AA batteries rather than the lithium-ion battery making it a bit slower to recharge between full power flashes..
Godox TT600 Review (released 2016)
Basically a TT685C without the E-TTL functionality. It’s just a manual flash but still has HSS. Godox X radio wireless (master/slave). Guide number of 60m at ISO 100 and 200mm, zoom range 20-200mm. One of my favourite budget speedlites.
Godox TT350 Review (released 2017)
The Godox TT350 is the baby of the family and the smallest in the Godox speedlite range. It really is a pocketable flash requiring just two AA batteries. Guide number of 36m at ISO 100 at 105mm (compared to the typical 52m of most larger flashes). Features include a 24-105 zoom, E-TTL, HSS and built-in 2.4Ghz Godox X radio wireless (master/slave). Ideal for smaller mirrorless cameras.
AmazonBasics Electronic Flash
No frills manual speedlite at an unbeatable price. Excellent option for budget home studio. Easy to use but you’ll need to invest in a basic wireless trigger set and get it off camera. Guide number of 33m at ISO 100 and 35mm places only just below the Canon 600EX II-RT and more powerful than the 430EX III-RT. Sold by Amazon but more than likely built by Godox.
