A Comprehensive Master Guide to Godox Lights and Accessories

Published 4th June 2020

Godox complete guide to lights and accessories

What is Godox?

Godox is a photographic lighting and accessories brand producing a wide range of products for almost every conceivable photographic genre and style. The company is based in Shenzhen, China, but their products are now in use in every corner of the globe, and by every kind of photographer; from budding enthusiast to the hardworking professional. If your idea of Chinese-made photographic equipment is one of cheap components, shoddy materials, and poor performance, it’s likely you’re not acquainted with the fantastic range of Godox lights or their line of cleverly-designed and well-built accessories.

What Does Godox Specialise In?

The range of Godox lighting equipment covers everything from pocketable LEDs, through camera-mounted speedlites and portable studio strobes, to mains-powered flashes and high-output video lights. This impressive line-up is supported by a comprehensive range of accessories, including advanced wireless transmitters, stands, carry-cases, softboxes, and numerous other light modifiers. In short, Godox offers a complete system. 

One of the primary advantages of the Godox lighting system is that most products within the different categories will work together seamlessly. This means that once you’ve bought into the system, you should have no problem sharing and combining accessories between one product and another; even when switching between continuous lighting and portable flashguns, for instance.

As an example, a single wireless transmitter will allow you to remotely trigger and control the settings of everything from the brand’s mini-flash units to its top-of-the-range, high-powered studio strobes. Similarly, Godox makes extensive use of the Bowen’s mounting system; in many cases also supplementing this with adapters for Profoto, Elinchrom, and Broncolor accessories. This makes it possible to use the same modifiers across a wide range of products; from speedlites and studio strobes to LED video lights.

Who Are Godox Lights and Accessories For?

In a few words, Godox offers exceptional quality and usability for just a fraction of the price of the top-end European photographic lighting manufacturers. This makes the brand’s products the ideal solution for hard-working photographers on a budget who nonetheless do not wish to compromise on quality and features. 

How Do Godox Lights Compare With Competitors’ Products?

Even just a few years ago there was a degree of risk involved in going with certain Chinese lighting companies. Is that still the case? How do Godox’s products measure up against those of market leaders such as Elinchrom, Profoto, and Broncolor?

Things move fast in the world of lighting technology, and Godox has been doing this longer than most  - since the early ‘90s to be more precise. Any teething problems there might have been early on had been well and truly ironed out. A fact reflected by the widespread popularity of Godox lights today.

True, given a totally unlimited budget, most pro-photographers would likely choose to own Profoto or Broncolor gear. Realistically though, few but the very highest-paid professionals have that kind of budget to throw around these days. Meanwhile, an excellent Godox lighting kit can be purchased for little more than the price of renting a couple of Profoto studio lights for a single day. That’s a significant difference in cost.

There’s no denying that Profoto and Broncolor gear is exceptionally sturdy and well-built; hence why it can withstand the rigors of pro-rental. However, the upgrade in construction quality is not so huge as to justify the enormous disparity in purchase price when compared with Godox lights.

What’s more, if we leave aside the matter of build, the performance of Godox’s products is clearly comparable to that of its pricier competitors. Indeed, on some fronts it even outdoes them. If Profoto and Broncolor products can be considered our benchmark of 100% (and if we’re honest, that’s not always the case), then Godox is likely around 90%. Yet invariably their products cost one-third of the price.

Let’s put it this way; a tank may be the most secure form of off-road travel, but for most people, a regular 4WD will do just fine; it will also come at a far more accessible price point. If you’ve just landed a commission to shoot the next Gucci campaign (or you’re thinking of shooting fashion in a war zone), then, sure, you might want to go with Profoto. But anyone else will be good with the Godox.

Godox Lighting Products Explained

The Godox lighting range has expanded rapidly in recent years, meaning that there is now a confusing array of product names and numbers that new users must navigate before identifying the best Godox lights for their godox needs. To help you work out which Godox lighting products will be most suitable for your photography, we’ve put together a comprehensive, up-to-date list of all the Godox flash, continuous, and hybrid lighting products currently available.

Godox Speedlite Flashes


Until recently the market for affordable third-party speedlites had largely been dominated by other Chinese brands such as Yongnuo. That’s all changed; now Godox has made this terrain well and truly their own. The brand has achieved this rapid turnaround by offering a strong range of powerful little flash guns packed with advanced features of the kind normally only found on much more expensive products. 

Godox offers a wide range of speedlites for use both on and off camera. These are compatible with camera models from all the major manufacturers, such as Canon, Nikon, Sony etc. To help you choose the model that’s right for you, here’s a rundown of all the Godox speedlites currently available; a summary of their main features and advantages; and comparison tables to help you to decide between them. You can also check out our video below where we compare the Godox Speedlite Range, more specifically the TT350, V350, TT600, TT685, and V860II.

Godox A1 Hybrid Flash/LED Smartphone Flash & Trigger

Godox A1 Hybrid Flash LED Trigger Device

The Godox A1 is a hybrid flash-LED-trigger device that fills a gap in the market for off-camera flash photography using smartphones. Fitting easily into the palm of the hand, and stylishly designed, the A1 makes an excellent companion to the latest generation of high-resolution smartphone cameras. Now you can achieve professional photographic results on your phone with very little extra equipment or investment. 

In practice, this could simply mean taking much more stylish and better-exposed selfies. Yet the A1 is every bit as suitable for shooting product photography too; making it a great option for those running a home e-commerce business.

The unit is controlled via Godox’s dedicated smartphone app. This allows you to remotely alter the A1’s setting - for example, change the power output, or turn on the modelling lamp - while also adjusting the settings of your phone’s camera for better manual results. There are also physical controls on the A1 itself - a handy top-dial and an easy-to-read LED display - making it simple to perfect your lighting setup on the fly. 

Being so small, the A1 can easily be hand-held while simultaneously shooting with your phone, or placed discretely just out of shot on a tripod, table, or another available surface. The unit could even be hidden in the shot itself for creative effect. 

Additionally, the A1 offers a high degree of integration with other products in the Godox lighting system, allowing it to become part of more sophisticated setups via wireless triggering - either as a master or a slave. So for those who already own other Godox lights, the A1 could be used in tandem with one or more other flash units; acting as a small front fill-light, for example.

A1 Mini

Godox A1 Mini Ami Smartphone LED Flash

The Godox A1 Mini, or the “Ami” as it’s affectionately called, is a stripped-down and smaller version of Godox’s A1 smartphone strobe (above) that does away with some of the pro-level features of the original. Although the idea and design of the unit remain the same, the Mini lacks the wider compatibility offered by its predecessor. And without 2.4 GHz wireless functionality, all communication between the Mini and your phone is done over Bluetooth. In practice, this means that the A1 functions merely as a simple smartphone strobe light, and cannot be integrated into Godox’s broader flash trigger system in the same way that the A1 can. 

However, the fact that Godox has released a more minimal version of this flash actually makes a lot of sense. Most users will be interested in a product of this kind simply for shooting better selfies or quick product photos that they can upload to e-commerce sites such as Depop and eBay. And for that, they’ll have no need for either the A1’s more sophisticated specifications nor its higher price tag.

TT350

Godox TT350 Speedlite Flash

The TT350 is a Godox flash for Sony, Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, and Fuji cameras that can be used in TTL, manual, optical slave, and multi-flash modes. The TT350 is very compact in size; reflected by the fact that it takes just 2 AA batteries rather than the standard 4 of a full-size speedlite. 

Naturally, fewer batteries and a smaller head translate into reduced output when compared with a full-size unit. Nonetheless, the aggressive “spank” of a high powered strobe on full-power will be overkill for anyone who largely just uses flash for filling in shadows or balancing with ambient light. Similarly, a full-size speedlite will make many smaller Mirrorless cameras a little too top-heavy for comfort.

Consequently, with its highly accessible price, the Godox TT350 will make a very appealing option for many more casual users or those with smaller cameras. Alternatively, for serious strobists looking to put together a more advanced off-camera flash setup, this would also make an excellent second or third flash unit when combined with one or two bigger guns. 

Having said this, despite its miniature size, the TT350 actually holds its own pretty well in the power department; offering a very noticeable step up in output when compared with the built-in flash of your average DLSR or Mirrorless camera. On paper, the unit offers a guide number of 36, and in practice, illumination is surprisingly powerful for such a small flashgun. Although recycling times are rated by the manufacturer at about 2.2 seconds, in practice they seem to be more like 2.5 seconds at full power; still pretty impressive for such a small gadget. 

The TT350 can also be used as both a master and slave radio controller, allowing you to fire other Godox flash guns at a distance. And when in wireless mode, the unit offers 3 groups, 16 channels, and a 30 metre sync range. 

The TT350’s UI is fairly minimal, featuring a simple layout under the LCD consisting of easy to press buttons and a selection dial. To anyone who has ever used a speedlite before, all controls will be fairly intuitive and self-explanatory. Finally, the build of this unit is extremely durable, and articulation of the head is very smooth with just the right degree of resistance.

To summarize, the TT350 does pretty much anything you could ever want from a speedlite, only in a somewhat smaller and less powerful format.

V350

Godox TT350 Speedlite Flash Kit

Like the look of the Godox TT350 (above)? But aren’t willing to forego power in pursuit of a more compact design? Then the V350 could be just for you. 

This unit is essentially the same as the TT350, but with a built-in recyclable Lithium-ion battery providing more flashes and faster recycling times. Indeed, the boost from the Li-ion effectively halves the amount of time you’ll need to wait before you can fire again.

True, the V350 is very marginally longer in the head and bulkier in the body than the TT350; but if you crave more power, this minor compromise in size and weight is well worth the trade-off. Other than this though, there’s essentially no difference between the two models, so only go for the more costly V350 if you think you’ll need the extra power and speed.

TT600

Godox TT600 Speedlite Flash

The TT600 is a manual-only speedlite for i.e. it doesn’t offer TTL operation. This makes it more useful as part of an off-camera multi-strobe setup than as a primary on-camera flash unit. However, one thing that you do get here - and this is something of a game-changer considering the price of this light - is high-speed sync (HSS). And via wireless to boot!

Additionally, as with most other Godox flash products, the TT600 can be used as either a wireless master or a slave. This means that it’s ideal for use as an off-camera flash at a distance, controlled via one of the Godox wireless transmitters (see below), or just as equally it can be used to remotely trigger any other Godox flash unit(s) you may own.

The TT600  features an easy-to-use interface; chunky, robust buttons; and a nice smooth selection dial. The rotating flash-head provides satisfying action, with good resistance and clear stops when adjusting the angle. Finally, as with all these little Godox flash units, the construction quality of the TT600 is very sturdy. And while the battery door is inevitably the weakest part of any speedlite, here it fits very snugly and feels solidly built. The unit takes 4 AA batteries.

Got a Sony camera and want the TT600? This is the wrong model; you need the TT600s (below).

TT685

godox tt685s speedlite flash

Providing a higher output than the other units we’ve covered here so far, the TT685 is quite a serious Godox flash gun that’s available for Panasonic, Nikon, Canon, Sony, Fuji, and Olympus cameras. Whereas the TT350 and 600 models (above) are great little speedlites for using with a smaller Mirrorless camera, or as secondary flash units in a multi-strobe setup, the TT685 offers TTL operation and a range of other specifications more comparable with high-end flash units from household-name manufacturers. This makes it a great choice as a primary flash gun - even on larger cameras such as DSLRs.


In addition to the increased power output, the TT685 is also capable of covering a much wider zoom range, with settings available from 20mm through to 200mm. As ever, build is very solid and reassuring, and there’s a custom lock button to stop you from accidentally changing flash parameters mid-shoot.

godox tt685s speedlite flash with softboxes


Once again the TT685 can be used as either a master or slave over 2.4 GHz wireless, with the LCD changing colour depending upon which mode you select; a green light means master, while orange indicates that the flash is functioning as a slave. This makes it quick and easy to tell which unit you’re dealing with when working with multiple strobes placed at a distance.

All in all, if you’re looking for a single workhorse TTL speedlite for use with your Mirrorless or DSLR camera, you could do a lot worse than the Godox TT685.

V850II

Godox V850II Speedlite Flash

The Godox V850II is a full-sized speedlite with a built-in Lithium-ion battery. With its high-power output and fast recycling times, the V850II is well suited for use with a DSLR or larger Mirrorless camera. However, as the unit doesn’t offer TTL operation, for most photographers it’s likely to be most attractive as a powerful off-camera flash. Similarly, HSS is only available when the unit is used via wireless, making the V850II a more obvious choice for use as part of a multi-flash or studio setup.

If you consider the lack of TTL and full-HSS capabilities to be a deal-breaker, you may want to consider the otherwise identical V860II (below) as an alternative.

V1


The Godox V1 is the brand’s flagship speedlite, for use both on and off camera; effectively bridging the gap between regular speedlites and more advanced studio strobes. The first thing you’ll notice about the V1 is that it features a rounded head, rather than the standard rectangular one of most speedlites. In theory, this unusual shape leads to a much softer and more pleasing quality of light than the rectangular fresnel head of a standard portable flashgun.

While clearly a small head without modifiers will never achieve the softness of a big studio unit with a softbox, in practice the effect produced by the V1 is very attractive indeed. In fact, the V1 even outdoes speedlites from very popular and respected brands such as Metz, both in terms of the quality of light and accuracy of TTL performance. 

godox v1 round head speedlite

In any case, if the softness of light is what you seek, the V1 is compatible with Godox’s impressive range of magnetic accessories (below), allowing for the quick and easy changing of light modifiers. The unit features an impressively powerful modeling light and runs on a built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that’s good for about 480 full-power flashes. If you think that you’ll need even more juice than this, spare batteries are available at a very reasonable price, and will charge quickly via USB.

The build of the V1 is very rugged, and the head can be positioned at a broader range of vertical angles than usual, allowing you to bounce light from above and behind if necessary. Meanwhile, as with most of the Godox flash units we’ve looked at here, the head swivels 330 degrees horizontally.

Godox’s Witstro flashes are designed to provide professional-level lighting solutions on the move. The range includes many of the brand’s most innovative and stand-out strobe designs and incorporates state-of-the-art features to rival the top end manufacturers. The Witstro line includes everything from potent pocket-sized flashes that make a more powerful and versatile alternative to speedlites, through to high-Watt Lithium-ion-powered portable studio strobes that permit compromise-free shooting even when working on locations lacking mains power.

AD360II

The Godox AD360II is an updated version of the brand’s popular AD360; a highly powerful bare-bulb flash unit that comes cheaper than most top-end Nikon or Canon speedlites, yet far outperforms them in terms of output. What’s more, with the latest iteration, users gain integrated long-range wireless control and full HSS, making this a very highly specced unit indeed. 

As with other Godox flash products, the AD360II will work over wireless as either master or slave. It is also compatible with the X1 transmitter (below), or can just as easily control - or be controlled by - other Godox flash units, such as the TT685.

The AD360II boasts great TTL functionality, full manual mode, and highly effective high-speed sync up to 1/8000. The UI consists of a decent-sized LCD, chunky buttons, and an easy-to-use dial on the back. For anyone who has used a regular speedlite before, menus will be a breeze to navigate.

The flash runs on slimline external Lithium-ion battery packs that are rated for a staggering 1,800 flashes. While these packs feature 2 outputs so as to permit running a pair of lights simultaneously, by using Godox’s “Y” cable adapter you can plug the AD360II into both outputs, thus halving recycle times.

AD200

Godox AD200 Flash Strobe

Bigger than a speedlite, but much shorter and slimmer than your average studio strobe, the Godox AD200 is a very lightweight and solidly-built flash that is ideal for high-powered location photography on-the-fly. The AD200 features a sleek design, with sturdy controls and a battery that doesn’t stick out of the unit - unlike comparable products from competitor brands. This makes it much easier to stow and carry.

The AD200 allows for full manual, TTL, and HSS shooting. Beyond this, though, one of the major attractions of the unit is the fact that you can quickly switch between a fresnel and bare-bulb head. With the speedlite-style fresnel head providing concentrated output and greater protection for the bulb when on the move, but the bare-bulb offering a wider arc and more attractive quality of light when used with a softbox or other large modifier.

Speaking of modifiers, another clear advantage of these lights is simply the wide range of accessories they are compatible with. For example, there’s the AD-S2 standard reflector for general use. Alternatively, those in need of softer light can reach for the highly compact AD-S17 wide-angle diffuser, which provides a much more travel-friendly alternative to carrying a softbox. And for more directional lighting, there’s the AD-S9 honeycomb-snoot or the BD-07 honeycomb-barn doors

Meanwhile, the EC200 head-extension cable effectively transforms your AD200 into a small flash head with a separate battery pack; rather like a miniature studio light. And anyone who also needs to shoot with continuous lighting from time to time will likely be interested in the AD-L head, as this will transform your AD200 into a portable LED video light. Finally, want to double your output power by combining two AD200 units and just one head? The AD-B2 dual-power flash bracket is for you.

Compact yet highly versatile, these little units are a total blessing for any frequent air-travelers who have become fatigued by the ever more stringent controls on checked baggage. They are small and discrete enough that they are unlikely to cause you any arguments with airport security, yet still pack a huge amount of power once you get to your destination.

Indeed, the AD200 is much more powerful than a speedlite and only marginally less so than something like the Godox AD600 (below). It recycles to full power in just over 2 seconds, and the battery is rated for 500 shots from a full charge. That’s a lot of punch from so small a unit. Purchase a couple of these and an AD600Pro, and you’ve got a highly potent studio lighting setup that you can take virtually anywhere

AD200Pro

Godox witstro AD200Pro Flash Strobe

The AD200Pro keeps the winning design of its predecessor (the AD200, above), but adds better colour stability via a dedicated “Stable Colour Temperature Mode.” Other changes include an improved, and now recessed, rear display; an increased power range; and output that is changeable in 1/10 increments. Godox also claims slightly faster recycle times.

All the accessories that go with the AD200 will also work on the Pro version, including the round head. However, if you want to make use of this latter item you’ll need to purchase it separately, as by default only the fresnel head is included in the box with the AD200Pro. As with the AD200, the AD200Pro will also work with the EC200 extension head.

AD300Pro


A new addition to the Godox stable, the AD300Pro is a beautifully-designed little barrel of a light that packs a lot of power into its sleek and lightweight body. In appearance, the AD300Pro is perhaps the closest any Godox product gets to Profoto’s offerings; with a fully modern silhouette that makes most traditional studio lights look like the relic from the last century that they are. But beyond superficial resemblance, the AD300Pro also offers a level of performance that is comparable to models such as Profoto’s B10 units - but for less than a third of the cost. 

The AD300Pro runs on a Lithium battery pack that slots in easily from the back; making it simple to switch-out while shooting. Rated to provide 320 full-power flashes on the move, the battery will recharge to full in less than two and half hours. 

Godox AD300Pro Flash Strobe

The AD300Pro is controlled by an easy-to-use combination of buttons surrounding a good-sized LCD on the rear of the unit. Meanwhile, built-in 2.4 GHz radio triggering makes the light TTL-compatible with a wide array of camera models from Canon, Nikon, Fuji, and Olympus, through to Pentax, Panasonic, and Sony.

The AD300Pro comes with a slim integrated reflector, for a highly attractive quality of light right off the bat. Alternatively, those looking to sculpt their light further will find a wide range of compatible modifiers to choose from. These include the AD-65/85 softboxes, the SN04 snoot, the AD-R12 long-focus reflector, and the BD-08 barndoor kit. And with its 12W output, the AD300Pro’s bi-color (3000K -6000K) LED modelling light could also double as a video light in a pinch.

AD400Pro


You could be forgiven for imagining that the AD400Pro would essentially just be the AD200Pro with 200Ws of extra juice. Or an AD300Pro with 100W more. In actual fact, though, while still very mobile and easy to use, the AD400Pro is an altogether different unit. Indeed it’s more like a regular studio strobe in appearance and has little in common with the minimalist brick design of the two AD200 models or the self-contained tube of the AD300. 

Looks aren’t everything, though, and the AD400Pro is an impressive performer; offering TTL, manual, and multimode operation, and featuring a very bright LED 30W modeling lamp. It’s rated for 390 full-power flashes and boasts a recycling time of just one second; highly impressive for a portable light of this kind. The unit can be set to power-off automatically when left inactive for long periods of time, helping to save the battery.

godox ad400pro flash strobe

The AD400Pro comes with the Godox mount as standard, making it compatible with the AD-S65/85 softboxes right out of the box. Additionally, there are interchangeable adapter rings available for Bowen’s, Profoto, and Elinchrom light modifiers - something that’s lacking from even the higher-powered AD600Pro (below). The whole kit arrives neatly packed in its own carrying case, allowing snug and secure storage of the unit once a job’s done. 

Finally, one clear advantage of the AD400Pro over most competing portable lighting units is the fact that it can also run on mains power. Keep the battery in the pack while shooting indoors using the AC400 power adapter and it will recharge for when you’re ready to move to the next outdoor location. There’s also the H400P head-to-pack extension cable for when using the AD400Pro on particularly tall lighting stands; allowing you to keep the power pack low down as ballast, ensuring that the head remains safely balanced high up on the stand.

AD600BM

godox ad600bm flash strobe

The AD600BM is a manual-only flash unit that packs an impressive blast of power (guide 87) from its rechargeable Lithium battery pack. However, lacking TTL capabilities, it’s a light that will be less suited to run-and-gun shooting situations such as weddings and other events, instead of finding its place in the studio or on location for portraiture, fashion, product shots, etc. And with full HSS capabilities on offer, it’s also well equipped for working outside in bright sunshine.

The unit boasts a bright 10 W modeling light, and both output and colour consistency is excellent. While recycling times are not the fastest compared to some other Godox flash models, they are nonetheless pretty impressive. 

As with many other Godox flash units, the AD600BM can be used with an extension head (in this case the AD-H600), and powered by an AC adapter (the AD-AC) for when shooting close to mains power.

If the lack of TTL makes the AD600BM a no-go as far as you’re concerned, you may want to check out the AD600B (below).

As with other top-of-the-range Godox lights, the unit will automatically switch off after a period of prolonged inactivity. 

As with the AD600BM, the AD600B can also be used with the AD-H600 extension head and the AD-AC mains adapter.

AD600Pro


The Godox AD600Pro is a very serious portable strobe that will satisfy the needs of almost any photographer - from the casual enthusiast through to the seasoned professional. In many ways very similar to Profoto’s B1 and B10 models, the AD600pro is well suited to top-end commercial photography, events, fashion, portraiture, product, and still-life photography; essentially any scenario in which a high output, fast recycling times, and total ease of use are of the essence.

However, it’s worth remembering that although this is pretty much the top of the range for Godox in terms of specifications, it’s more or less the bottom of the range for brands like Profoto and Broncolor. Which is not to say that the Godox product is inferior. Quite the opposite; what you’re getting here is a premium quality studio light that is comparable to products offered by the very best manufacturers - even outperforming them on several fronts - but for a fraction of the price. In fact, little more than a third of the price; depending on precisely which Broncolor or Profoto product we’re talking about.

As we’ve just seen though, the AD600’s B and BM models (above) are already very powerfully specced. So what makes this one worthy of the “Pro” tag and accompanying price-hike? Well, for a start, although the AD600Pro’s output remains the same (guide number 87), recycling times are significantly faster on this unit than the previous two models. Indeed, they are actually faster than with comparable Profoto products. Wireless sync range, too, has been extended, and there’s a much more powerful modeling light on offer here as well.

As with the AD600B, there’s also TTL operation. And, in common with a few other top of the range Godox flash units, there’s a consistent colour temperature mode for when precision in this department is essential. 

Godox ad600pro flash strobe

Admittedly the unit is a touch heavier than the B and BM models, but not enough to cause concern. Less positively, however, at 360 full-power flashes per charge, the Pro will actually keep you shooting for less time than the cheaper B and BM versions. So if you are a heavy shooter, you will likely want to invest in a second battery (they take just a couple of hours to charge). Handily, the AD600Pro can also be powered by the AC26 mains adapter. And for those times when you need to position the light high up on a tall stand, there’s the H600P extension head.

Whereas Profoto units typically allow for adjustments of 1/10, power on the AD600Pro can be increased only in increments of 1/3 stop. But just how precise any brand really is on this front is open to some considerable doubt, so in practice the difference may not matter a great deal anyway.

The Godox AD600Pro is a fantastic bit of kit that is truly unbeatable on features at this price point. You’ll want to be absolutely certain that you really need the extra specs it offers though, as it comes in at almost twice the cost of the manual-only AD600BM.

Hinted at in late 2019, and officially announced just at the start of this year, the latest addition to the professional Godox flash range, the AD1200Pro, is a super high-powered portable studio light that places the brand firmly in the major league of lighting manufacturers. These lights promise to be a game-changer for photographers seeking a mobile solution for high-output flash at a price well below that of any similar products from Broncolor, Profoto, and Elinchrom etc.

But it’s not just the combination of high flash potency and a bargain price that is generating so much excitement around the AD1200Pro. Coming in a sturdy outer shell, with rubberized protection on all corners, and boasting chunky and solid-looking controls, by any standards these are exceptionally durable and well-built lights. Clearly more than capable of withstanding the rigors of daily use on location.

And while 10 years ago we might have had some reservations about the slightly fragile-looking connections between pack and head that Godox used on some of their portable lighting kits, the AD1200Pro sees the brand opting for a very reassuring looking Elinchrom-style socket for the power cable; no more fussy pin-formations or flimsy connections here.

godox ad1200pro flash strobe

Even putting build quality aside, though, these simply look to be extremely impressive kits. Not to mention powerful; partly in terms of their 1200 Watt output, but also in the impressive array of features they pack under the hood. For a start, the AD1200Pro is compatible with the TTL systems of several camera manufacturers, including Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, and Sony. Then of course there is Godox’s fantastic 2.4 GHz wireless trigger system, offering five controllable slave groups and 32 channels, and rated to work over distances of up to 100 meters/328 feet.

Featuring bright 40 Watt LED modeling lights, High-Speed Sync with shutter speeds of up to 1/8000, and Godox’s Stable Colour Temperature mode, these lights are set to become the default portable studio system for professionals and serious enthusiasts alike. There’s also a Stroboscopic Mode that permits firing off 100 consecutive high-speed flashes at 1/16 power; great for capturing fast action sequences. 

The units run on portable Lithium-Ion batteries, or can be powered directly from the mains while charging. A full battery will provide you with a highly impressive 500 full-power flashes, with recycling times of two seconds at maximum output. Finally, the AD1200Pro is compatible with an enormous range of light modifiers via the popular Bowen’s type mount.

Studio Flash Strobes

godox flash strobe range

Although one of Godox’s most notable innovations has been to bring high-quality battery-powered strobes to the market at affordable prices, the brand also has a long history of producing great quality mains-powered studio lighting. True, many of Godox’s portable strobe units will also run off the mains, meaning that they can easily double up as studio lights if required. However, for anyone who shoots exclusively indoors and close to a mains power supply, there would be nothing to gain by buying portable lights. On the contrary, as battery-powered lights invariably come at a higher purchase price, and typically offer slower recycling times, to those who do not value mobility they offer only disadvantages. 

In this case, it would clearly make much more sense to buy dedicated studio strobes and be done with it. Thankfully Godox offers a truly impressive range in this department, too. Here we provide a thorough run-down of the various types of studio flash that Godox currently manufactures.

GS200II / GS300II / GS400II

godox studio flash strobe gs300ii

The Godox GS, or “Gemini”, series of lights share many of the outstanding features of the brand’s portable lighting units, but in a package that is better suited to studio work - and usually cheaper than its battery-powered equivalent too. This means that you get the convenience of Godox’s excellent built-in 2.4GHz wireless triggering capabilities; 50 steps of flash output (from 1/32 to 1/1); an adjustable 150W modeling lamp;  and a recycling time of 1.2 seconds when used at full power (dropping right down to 0.3 seconds when working at the lowest output setting). The GS series also benefits from compatibility with an enormous range of light-shaping accessories via a Bowen’s mount.

DS300II
/ DS400II

godox ds300ii studio flash strobe

A small and lightweight pair of studio strobes from Godox, the DSII series will suit those working in smaller home-studio spaces on a variety of photographic genres; from still life, product, and jewellery photography, to intimate portraiture, headshots, commercial, and e-commerce work. Alternatively, when combined with other more powerful units in the Godox studio strobe range, the DS models become excellent fill or kicker lights.

Although the first DS lights lacked built-in wireless receivers, the most recent MK II versions of these strobes come with full 2.4GHz capability. A stepless adjustable 150W modeling lamp makes the lights easy to set up, and once again you gain full control over the end results via the extensive range of light modifiers made available by the inclusion of a Bowen’s mount.

SK300II / SK400II


Similar to the DS series (above) the SK lights are a small and lightweight solution for those shooting portraits, e-commerce, and product photography in a relatively small space.

godox sk400ii and godox sk300ii studio flash strobe

What the SK300II and SK400II offer in the way of advantage over the DS lights is largely in terms of output stability, with Godox claiming consistency of within 2% when used on the same power source. Again, the MK II iteration of these lights offers 2.4 GHz wireless triggering.

MS200 / MS300

godox ms300 studio strobe

Highly compact and portable, the MS series of studio flashes are well suited to use as primary lights in a small roving e-commerce lighting setup, or as fill-flashes in a larger pro-studio scenario. Featuring onboard 2.4 GHz wireless, the MS studio strobes are designed to either work as a standalone lighting solution or integrate seamlessly into your existing Godox lighting system and will work with the XT-16, X1, X2, and XPro triggers.

Both the MS 200 and MS 300 feature a built-in, adjustable 150W modeling light and are compatible with Bowen’s mount accessories. Output stability is excellent, making them a strong choice for use when consistency between images (say for e-commerce listings) is a priority.

DP400III / DP600III / DP800III / DP1000III 

godox dp400III studio flash strobe

The DPIII series of studio flashes from Godox is clearly made with the hardworking professional in mind. Robust, stylishly designed, and boasting a clear and easy to use UI, these are fantastic strobe lights that deserve a place in any studio. Accurate daylight-balanced output and a consistent output seal their pro-credentials.

Featuring built-in 2.4 GHz wireless that is compatible with Godox’s excellent X-series of radio transmitters, the professionally-focused DPIII series of lights comes with 99 wireless ID settings so as to reduce the risk of interference from other triggers. This makes these lights the ideal choice to use in a multi-studio complex, as it eliminates the possibility that photographers working in adjacent studios may cause cross-firing of lights.

At just 1 second between flashes on full power, recycling times are plenty fast enough for all but the most high-speed of photography jobs. The 150W modeling light is adjustable in percentages, and flash output in 61 steps; from 1/64 to 1/1. A Bowen’s mount adapter completes the package.

QS400II / QS600II / QS800II / QS1200II 


Godox pride themselves on the high build quality and reliability of the QS flash system. And while the QS units lack the hi-speed flash capabilities of the top-of-the-range QT series (below), they aren’t far behind; either in terms of quality or features.

As with many of the other Godox studio flash units we’ve looked at here, The QS series of lights come with built-in 2.4 GHz for remote TTL shooting using Godox’s powerful range of triggers and wireless-equipped flashguns. Naturally, for those who prefer to keep things simple, the units also feature optical slave capabilities. 

QS lights are well designed and easy to use, featuring a clear LCD and a bank of intuitive buttons, knobs, and switches. Multi-function buttons add to the depth of user control. 

godox qs400II studio flash strobe

The QS series includes four different models, ranging from 400 watts through to an impressive 1200W unit for when a much bigger “pop” is required. Power on all the QS models is adjustable by 50 steps (1/32 to 1/1) in 0.1 increments, and recycling times range between 0.3 and 1.5 seconds at the minimum and maximum output settings respectively. 

The 150W modeling lamp can either be set to increase or decrease in power to the same degree as the flash - giving you a fairly accurate indication of the results you can expect when the strobes fire - or can be adjusted independently of flash output, from 5% through to 100%.

QT400II
/ QT600II / QT1200II 


Building on the impressive specs of the QS line, Godox’s QT series currently represents the pinnacle of the brand’s mains-powered studio lighting system. Not least of which because they now bring added high-speed sync capabilities to the game. Indeed, the models in the QT range boast the fastest recycling times (0.05 - 0.09s) and shortest flash durations of all the Godox studio lights, making them ideal for freezing action. There’s also a “masking mode” that will be of particular interest to still life and product photographers, as it fires multiple strobes one by one over a succession of shots, making it easier to comp certain elements out of (or into) an image at the post-production stage.

godox qt400ii studio flash strobe

However, beyond the advantages offered to those interested in high-speed photography, the QT series is otherwise largely comparable to the already very good QS system. Indeed, you’ll find all the regular Godox flash features here, from built-in 2.4 GHz wireless to a fully adjustable 150-watt modeling lamp. Finally, the controls on the rear panel are logically laid out in a manner similar to the QS units.

Hybrid Lighting

Hybrid lighting is a relatively new concept combining the advantages of both continuous LED and flash lighting in a single unit. Instead of employing traditional flash technology, these lights use LED panels for both continuous and flash operation, “overcharging” the LEDs to provide a brief burst of higher-powered output for flash-style stills photography.

Why would you want such a thing? Well, imagine that you’re shooting video but also need to produce a few stills or vice versa. Just a couple of years ago, this would either have meant making-do and shooting your stills using the continuous lights - with all the technical compromises and risks that entails - or wasting a lot of time setting up 2 sets of lights for a single shot. Not anymore; now you light the scene once, and can seamlessly switch back and forth between flash and continuous shooting without needing to make any changes to the lighting.

Hybrid lights come with both advantages and disadvantages. Where they win out over traditional flash units is when it comes to recycling times and HSS. However, here improved speed comes with a compromise in terms of output power, so don’t expect to be shooting at f/22 on 100 ISO as you might with a regular studio strobe.

FV150 / FV200


The Godox FV150 and FV200 are the brand’s first forays into producing hybrid LED flash systems. Daylight-balanced, offering amazing colour stability, and delivering a very accurate output range, these units function like regular mains-powered studio lights for both videos and stills photography; actually outperforming much more powerful LEDs from competing brands. But now switch over to flash operation, and these units perform almost as equally well, with the 400% overcharge providing a flash output that is almost 2 stops brighter than the continuous LED. In most cases, this will be just enough to freeze action.

godox fv150 hybrid led hss flash strobe

Given that LED flashes are always lower-powered than traditional strobe systems, it makes sense to go for the highest-powered unit you can find. That being the case, clearly, the FV200 will be the most useful of the 2 models here.

Continuous Lighting

Powerful, flicker-free, daylight-balanced movie lighting used to cost a small fortune; forcing amateurs everywhere to raid garden centers and DIY stores in search of more affordable options. Not anymore. 

As with flash gear, the options available for photographers and videographers working with continuous lighting have evolved massively in recent years, largely due to the increasing sophistication and affordability of LED technology. Now brands such as Godox have brought a range of bright and versatile continuous lighting to the market, making it easier and cheaper than ever to put together a comprehensive continuous lighting rig for either filmmaking or stills work.

Godox R1

Godox R1 is a round, palm-sized portable LED light that can be set to any colour on the RGB scale you wish. The unit itself is magnetic, allowing you to attach it to metal surfaces without the need for a lighting stand (although it has a thread for this too). The R1 can also be used with the brand’s range of magnetic modifiers, further adding to the light’s versatility.

The R1’s built-in rechargeable lithium battery will keep it shining on full power for about 90 minutes of continuous use. The controls are super easy to use; a combination of button and dial operation allowing quick changes to output, colour temperature, and other features.

godox r1 rgb led compact light

Speaking of “other features”, photographic equipment that comes with a range of built-in “effects” usually rings alarm bells; invariably promising a bunch of tacky and unusable gimmicks. But surprisingly, many of the effects built into the R1 are actually pretty good, and will likely be of genuine interest to filmmakers and videographers; from the flickering glow of candlelight to a TV screen, cop car, fireworks, or a faulty neon tube. You can even set the R1 to pulsate in time with the rhythm of music (or, more annoyingly, your voice).

Creative photographers and filmmakers will no doubt come up with a million uses for a small and flexible LED light such as this. Indeed everyone should keep a couple of R1s in their camera bag just for throwing a little light into the background or foreground of a shot. On bigger productions, however, where more complicated and luxurious lighting setups may be required, a dozen or so R1s would be a fantastic way of building up subtle, atmospheric lighting across an entire set.

S30
godox s30 focusing led light

The Godox S30 is a sturdily-built daylight-balanced LED video light. Running off the mains, the S30 gives out 30 Watts of attractive lighting. However, the S30 can also be used as a portable lighting unit, either via a USB power-bank or coupled with a separate Lithium-ion battery. At which point it will provide a reduced output of 10 Watts.

godox s30 focusing led light

Simple to use and featuring minimal controls - essentially just for altering power and focus - the S30 really comes into its own when combined with Godox’s wide range of compatible light modifiers and accessories (below). Encompassing everything from the SA-08 barndoor set and SA-P Projection Attachment, through to colour gels and a Gobo set, it’s these accessories that will permit talented photographers and DoPs to get the stunning and sophisticated lighting results they need.

godox fl150r led light

Godox’s FL range of lights is essentially lightweight, flexible, LED-covered mats. Fold them, roll them, sculpt them, slide them into tight spaces; these pliable light-banks are capable of bringing illumination to even the most gloomy and forgotten nooks and crannies. Combine with a softbox and grid-set for an extremely slim soft-lighting solution, and then control output and colour temperature via one of Godox’s wireless triggers, or from the Godox app on your phone via Bluetooth.

godox fl150s led panel

Multiple units can be attached together, allowing you to build up an entire wall of light if necessary. Power comes either via a mains adapter or a portable Lithium battery; so the FlexLight range is as good for photography and video on location as it is for studio work.

SLB60

godox sl60b continuous led light

The SLB60 is a daylight-balanced, battery-powered LED that produces a very bright light and is super simple to use. Although the SLB60 is essentially a lightweight, portable version of the mains-powered SL60 (above), it actually comes in the same housing as the AD600 flash unit, and even uses the same Lithium battery and charger. This means that if you have already bought into the Godox flash system, you’ll be able to swap over your accessories. Better still, if any of your modifiers are Bowens-mount, then you’ll be pleased to learn that you will be able to use these with the SLB60 too. 

The SLB60  has its own extension head, in the form of the AD-H600, and can use the same AC adapter as the AD600BM/AD600B, the AD-AC.

LC500 


The Godox LC500 is a powerful dual-colour light-stick that falls somewhere between Kino Flo’s classic range of tubular cinema lights and, well, a lightsaber. In practice, this means that it combines the ease of use of a Kino Flo LED bank - and its handy adjustable blinker system - with portable-power and a handle. 

The unit offers a daylight-balanced bank on one side, and tungsten on the other, making it effectively a two-in-one portable lighting solution without the need to pack cumbersome correction gels. However, keep in mind that although the output power of the LC500 is entirely adjustable, the Kelvin levels of the two sides are not. So you either get full daylight or full tungsten; but nothing in between.

godox lc500 continuous light ice stick light wand

Bright, lightweight, and very sturdy, the LC500 gives off twice the light of the similarly specced Westcott Icelight 2 at full power. The built-in battery takes under two and a half hours to reach full charge, and will then be good for powering the light at full output for nearly as long again.

The LC500’s barn doors are removable; either so you can place them on the other side of the unit, or simply use the light without them (when doing battle with “The Dark Side”, for example). As we’ve come to expect from Godox products, the LC500’s limited controls are adjustable via wireless remote. Meaning that once you’ve grown tired of playing Luke Skywalker, you can place the light on a stand and control it from a distance.

Transmitters

For older photographers who still remember the days of tripping over PC-Sync cords, just the fact that wireless trigger technology exists already looks like a minor miracle. For anyone else, remote triggering might be a given, but the speed with which this technology has evolved in the last few years will likely impress anyone.

With a range of highly sophisticated 2.4 GHz transmitters and receivers, Godox are clearly at the forefront of this revolution. The fact that their products not only cost a mere fraction of those offered by market-leaders such as PocketWizard and Profoto, but in many cases also outperform them, is undoubtedly one of the biggest draws of the Godox lighting range.

FC-16

godox fc16 trigger

The FC range of radio triggers are Godox’s simple, no-nonsense manual wireless transceivers for use with basic speedlites and studio strobes, or with older cameras that don’t offer TTL flash operation. In other words, beyond simply firing a strobe, or your camera’s shutter, the only other degree of control on offer here is simply the ability to decide which channel the units should operate on. 

Such a unit may seem very basic by today’s standards. Particularly when compared with Godox’s more sophisticated wireless transmitters. But the FC-16s actually present the best option for photographers who do not intend to make use of relatively recent technological innovations such as high speed sync or TTL flash control. Indeed, for anyone using basic studio lights that do not offer the ability to remotely change power settings, or which lack TTL compatibility, investing in more advanced radio triggers would be a waste of money. Similarly, if you are an analog photography enthusiast who shoots with a mechanical film camera, anything more advanced than an FC-16 would be entirely superfluous. 

Need a simple, dependable trigger to fire a flash from a distance? The FC range of transmitters and receivers is for you. If you’re using a camera from either Canon, Nikon or Sony, be sure to purchase the appropriate version of the FC-16, as the connector cables vary for each of these brands.

X1T/X1R

godox x1t wireless flash trigger

The X1T/R series of wireless units are designed to enable TTL, high-speed sync, and manual flash photography over long distances via 2.4 GHz radio; with the T of course indicating a transmitter unit, and the R a receiver. Although the X1s also function perfectly well when used with manual studio flash, it’s when working with TTL-enabled units such as Godox’s modern strobes and speedlites that this multi-channel trigger really shines.


The X1T offers users 5 groups and supports sync speeds of up to 1/8000. Select a group and you can independently alter parameters such as power (in manual mode) or adjust output compensation. Hold the channel button down for 2 seconds to access the unit’s custom functions, allowing you to create delays of between 0-100ms for rear curtain sync or sync speeds in excess of 1/1000 via HSS. The unit will also permit you to change the zoom settings of your flash, set up multiple flashes, and turn modeling lights on or off, etc, all from a single handy device located on top of your camera.

In addition to controlling off-camera flash, the X1T can also be used to fire your camera’s shutter from a distance. This makes it an essential tool for many wildlife photographers - who may not be able to get close to their subjects. Meanwhile, the X1T will be of interest to photographers shooting long-exposures of any kind; avoiding the risk of camera shake that would be caused by triggering the shutter manually. 

godox x1t wireless flash trigger

Highly user-friendly, the X1T features a rear LCD and numerous button controls, with a small vertical dial for scrolling through parameters. Down one side of the unit you’ll find on/off switches for the LCD and autofocus assist beam; on the other, PC-Sync and Micro-USB ports. 

The unit attaches securely to your camera via a cold foot on the bottom. Perhaps more importantly, a hot shoe on top means that the X1T can conveniently be used in tandem with other gear and gadgets; such as an on-camera flash or external LED focus-assist light.

Well-made, reliable, and effective even over long ranges, the X1T lacks none of the features of its top-end competitors but comes in at a mere fraction of the price. 

Note that users specifically interested in Godox flash for Canon should go for the X1T-C, which is designed to work seamlessly with Canon’s products.

X2T

godox x2t wireless flash trigger

The X2 continues the excellent work achieved by Godox with the X1, while also adding a number of advantages of its own. Now the LCD and all controls except the dial are housed on top of the unit. Meanwhile, if you make extensive use of groups and tend to change their parameters fairly often, you will undoubtedly find the X2T much quicker and simpler to operate due to the addition of dedicated buttons, allowing for quick and direct control. 

What’s more, the X2’s LCD and AF assist beam are brighter than those of the X1, making the transmitter ideal for use outdoors in strong sunshine. Perhaps the greatest upgrade here though is the addition of Bluetooth, allowing communication between the X2T, your smartphone, and strobes, via the Godox app.

XT32

godox xt32 wireless flash trigger

The XT32 is a fantastic 2.4 GHz wireless trigger for manual and high-speed sync flash photography.  As an evolution from the X1 and X2, you now get a full selector dial on the top - rather than just the edge of a wheel peeking out the back. This makes cycling through menus a whole lot easier. There are also several more buttons, which again speeds up access to menu options.

Like the X1T, the XT32 has 4 custom functions. What changes here is that each now has its own dedicated button for easier access. What’s more, all buttons now have dual uses; for example, while the first button is a dedicated modeling light on/off switch, hold it down for 2 seconds and it locks all the controls so that you can’t accidentally change settings.  

Power is now adjustable at 1/10 power increments, making it much more fine-tunable than the X1 and X2 transmitters (they offer only 1/3 increments). For those using older camera technology, PC Sync and Micro-USB ports are available on the side. All in all, the XT32 is a feature-packed and highly reliable remote transmitter, and yet costs way less than Profoto’s hugely popular Air wireless controllers.

XPro

godox xpro wireless flash trigger

XPro is Godox’s flagship wireless trigger for professionals and enthusiasts alike. Despite being very slightly bigger than the XT32, and offering a much larger screen, the XPro is actually considerably lighter. And whereas the XT32 is good for manual shooting and highspeed sync only, the XPro offers many additional functions while keeping just you equally covered for these features as well. 

Perhaps the main advantage of the Xpro, though, is simply how easy it is to navigate. Indeed it features drastically improved menus when compared with both the XT32 and X1T. You also get a lot more group buttons, plus clear labelling of all the buttons and their secondary functions. As with the XT32, the XPro can be used with older flash units via PC-Sync or USB connections.

Comparison Between the X1 vs. XPro vs. X2


Accessories

No lighting setup is complete without a range of interchangeable accessories. And this is undeniably one of the strongest points of the Godox flash and continuous lighting systems; not only does the brand offer a wide choice of accessories and lighting modifiers, but there is a high degree of compatibility between all the different products in the range. This means that once you’ve bought into the system with one kind of product - continuous lighting, for example -  there’s a strong chance that you will still be able to use many of your accessories even when expanding to another product area: e.g. speedlite or studio flash.

Lighting Modifiers

Reliable high-output lighting units lie at the heart of the Godox system. Yet the art of creative lighting hinges on much more than rugged power alone. In the hands of a skilled photographer, lighting modifiers are like a scalpel to a surgeon. The wider the range of modifiers available, the more nuanced and powerful the photographer’s control over the final results.

But as anyone who has ever battled to assemble a cheap softbox will know all too well, in order for lighting modifiers to be effective, they need to be easy and convenient to use. This is a fact that Godox clearly appreciates, as they offer a broad range of highly usable and easy to assemble lighting modifiers, covering almost every conceivable lighting scenario.

P90/P120

Godox’s P90 and P120 parabolic softboxes are notable for their relatively deep shape. This makes for a quality of light that is both soft and highly directional, with a much narrower spread.

Quick to set up, and extremely sturdy, the P90 and P120 will appeal to photographers shooting fashion, weddings, portraits, still-lifes, and product photography. Particularly those looking to add a harder and more atmospheric edge to their images while retaining the flattering diffused light that only a softbox can produce. The P/90 and P/120 are compatible with any Bowen’s-mount head and are available in both heat-resistant and lightweight versions.

Barn Doors / Gels

godox bd-07 barndoors and gels

A basic element of any photographic lighting kit, barn doors are essential for controlling the direction and spill of light. Four folding black panels attach to the front of the head; open them wide for full illumination of the scene, or shut them down for a much narrower beam. Alternatively, closing a single flap will allow you to flag unwanted spill from just a particular area of the subject.

Meanwhile, whether used for matching a location’s ambient colour temperature or as a way of adding creative spice to your lighting setups, a set of colour gels is an important weapon in any photographer’s arsenal.

Snoot

The Godox SA-P snoot is a light modifier that is compatible with the brand’s S30 continuous LED unit. This is a narrow optical snoot; meaning that it contains a lens allowing precise focusing and shaping of the light source. Lenses can be switched out for other focal lengths, producing either a wider or narrower beam as required.

Alternatively, slide in aperture control, and you can snoot the beam down to almost a pinprick of light for truly precision lighting work. Or add cookies and gobos for more elaborate effects and light-shaping possibilities. Great for dramatic cinematic lighting or for still-life, product, and jewelry photography where a high degree of detail and accuracy is required.

Bags

Godox offers a wide choice of carrying cases and bags in which to transport their products. These range from simple carrying bags for light stands to sturdy wheeled suitcases capable of containing an entire studio’s worth of lighting; stands, heads, battery packs, and accessories. Sturdily built, with padded sides and inner dividers, Godox’s lighting bags will help keep your precious lighting equipment safely stored yet easily accessible as you move from location to location.

CB-01

godox cb01 carry bag

The CB-01 is a huge wheeled carrying case that is as appropriate for transporting light stands and tripods as it is for storing several larger flash heads. Measuring 114 cm long, there’s plenty of room for even the tallest of stands to sit alongside sundry other items, such as umbrellas, color gels, frost, cinefoil etc. Alternatively, use internal dividers to keep several AD-series flash heads safe and secure while on the road. Strongly built, with semi-rigid sides, a padded top, and durable nylon carrying straps, the CB-01 guarantees that your valuable lighting kit will arrive on location in tip-top shape every time.

Stands and Other Accessories

While undoubtedly not the most exciting bit of photographic equipment, nor one with specs that anyone is ever likely to geek-out on, lighting stands and mounting clamps are nonetheless an essential consideration for anyone putting together a photographic lighting system for either studio or location work. And although most stands may superficially look the same, small variations in design and manufacturing can make a big difference to their performance in the field.

Unfortunately, with inferior stands, these are often the kinds of differences you only find out about once it’s too late, and your expensive lights lie broken on the floor. Thankfully though, Godox offer a broad selection of sturdy, well-made stands that are up to the punishment of daily professional use and will keep your valuable equipment positioned firmly on its feet.

C-Stand

C-Stands offer an extra degree of stability when compared to regular lighting stands. For this reason they are the default stands in most professional photography studios the world over. C-Stands are not only for studio work though; despite their extra weight, they can be highly advantageous to use even on location.

Planning on using a big softbox? With a boom arm? Outdoors? In high wind? The only safe solution would be a C-Stand and a couple of sandbags for ballast.

S-Type Bracket

godox s-type bracket

The S-Type Bracket is a patented bit of Godox innovation that allows speedlite users access to all the advantages of a Bowen’s mount; namely the kind of pro-level modifiers and accessories that are normally only available to owners of larger studio lights. Just clamp the head of your speedlite into the bracket, and you can now make use of any Bowen’s-compatible modifier such as an umbrella or softbox.


Aside from permitting the use of a greater range of accessories, though, the S-Bracket is simply a much more secure way of mounting a speedlite on a stand, bypassing as it does the weakest point of any speedlite; the hot shoe.

S2 Bracket


An updated version of the S-Type Bracket (above), the S2 is weightier and sturdier than the first iteration and features an improved mounting grip that will now also accept round flash heads such as the V1.

What’s more, the S2 comes with a more convenient handle for adjusting the angle of the bracket on a light stand, and the mount itself is now made of metal and will permit horizontal positioning on the stand. There’s an improvement to the umbrella-mount too, as this now features a slide-in auto-locking mechanism that makes the umbrella much more stable when in use.

Final Thoughts

Godox gear is for photographers who care about the quality of their lighting equipment but who either cannot afford to or simply don’t want to, pay the higher prices commanded by the big-name lighting brands. Whereas once “made in China” might have signified cheap prices but did little to reassure in terms of either longevity or quality, times have well and truly changed. This is particularly the case when it comes to photographic lighting equipment.

In many ways, the situation is similar to that of postwar Japan. Initially, Japan was seen as a source of affordable electronics of questionable quality. But this was largely because cheap knock-offs were precisely what Western markets wanted from them. Yet Japanese manufacturers quickly proved themselves capable of producing products that were not only every bit as good as their European or N. American counterparts but often better than them. Today nearly all the leading camera manufacturers are Japanese.

China is currently undergoing a similar transition; in the early stages of a shift from being merely a source of cheap consumer electronics to establishing itself as an innovative producer of world-class products. Within the realm of photographic lighting, Godox is undoubtedly at the forefront of this evolution. The brand has repeatedly shown itself capable of coming up with new and exciting products that not only rival those of the big-name photographic lighting companies but in many cases actually improve upon them. And at a considerably lower price. 

Clearly, then, by buying into the Godox lighting system today you will be able to enjoy an ever greater number of benefits as the brand continues to innovate in the future. As official Godox Australia distributors, here at Hypop, we’re uniquely placed to offer firsthand knowledge and advice regarding the brand’s products.
