Godox Speedlite Flash Comparison - What flash should you choose?

Published 14th August 2019

Godox produces a large range of flashes, but it can be hard to find out which one is right for you. This blog aims to make it easy to choose the Godox flash to suit you and your style of photography.

1. Godox TT350 and V350

Godox TT350 and Godox V350 Speedlite Flash Comparison

The Godox TT350 and V350 are smaller flashes and are great for beginners to flash photography.

The TT350 is powered by AA batteries, and the V350 is powered by the included lithium-ion rechargeable battery, which makes it slightly heavier than the TT350.

The extra bit of weight is offset by the faster recycle time of the V350, which goes from 0.1 seconds to 1.7 seconds at full power output.

The TT350 has a recycle time of between 0.1 seconds up to 2.2 seconds at full power output.

Both models have high-speed sync of up to 1/8000 of a second, and there is the TTL option, as well as manual and multi modes.

Also included are the standard Optical Sensor and AF Assist Beams on both flashes, and they both work with Godox’s new X-Wireless Triggering System. 

Because these are more compact flashes, the power output is slightly less than the larger models. These two flashes have a guide number of 60 at 100 ISO.

These are great little flashes that will cover all your needs while you are learning to use speedlites. They are available in all the major brands:

2. Godox TT600 and TT600S

Godox TT600 and Godox TT600S Speedlite Flash Comparison

The next step up the Godox range is the TT600, and it is a manual high-speed sync full-sized flash.

As it has no TTL function, you will need to know how to use manual flash, and the TT600 is a universal model that can be used on almost any brand of camera, except Sony.

The TT600S is exactly the same as the TT600, except that it is made to specifically fit the Sony hot shoe only. All the features are the same on both models.

Both flashes have Multi-Mode and Manual mode and are compatible with Godox’s X-Trigger System, so you can use the X-Pro or X-1 triggers.

The flashes have a DC input port for the Godox Propac range, and you can use external battery packs to operate the flash, but the flash unit still needs AA batteries. Using the Propac will decrease the recycle time, so it’s a great option for event or wedding photographers.

3. Godox TT685 and V860II

Godox TT685and Godox V860 Speedlite Flash Comparison

These two flashes are similar to the 350 range, but they are full-size speedlites.

They feature high-speed sync up to 1/8000 of a second, TTL, and they are full master speedlites.

They are compatible with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, and Olympus brands, and Godox flashes are great value for money compared with the flashes produced by these brands.

The V860II features a lithium-ion battery, whereas the TT685 takes 4 AA batteries. The V860II has a faster recycle time than the TT685 due to the Godox lithium-ion battery, and it goes from 0.1 seconds up to 1.5 seconds recycle time, compared to the TT685, which has a recycle time that ranges from 0.1 to 2.6 seconds. 

So, if recycle speed is important to you, choose the V860II, but if the lithium-ion battery is not essential, you may want to consider the TT685 and you can use it with the Propac and the DC port to increase the recycle speed.

You can find the TT685 range here and the V860II range here.

4. Godox V1

Godox V1 Speedlite Flash Comparison

The Godox V1 range is a different type of flash, featuring a rounded head rather than a  rectangular shaped flash head.

The round head has been developed to give a softer light pattern, and you can also buy light modifier accessories to further shape the light, so it has a big advantage over conventional speedlites.

Light output is rated at 76, so it gives off a fantastic amount of light for its size. The Godox V1 comes with a lithium-ion rechargeable battery, which you can charge using the included charger, but it also has the option of using a USB cable to recharge. You should be able to get around 480 full-power shots out of the battery before you have to recharge it. 

The moveable flash head gives you a wide range of motion for bouncing flash, and it goes back further than 90 degrees, to around 120 degrees. You can rotate it too, so you have lots of options for finding the perfect position for the flash. 

The Godox V1 is compatible with Godox’s X system wireless control.

Godox AK-R1 Kit

Godox AK-R1 Accessories Kit Speedlite Flash Comparision

The Godox AK-R1 Kit is a set of lighting modifiers that are compatible with the Godox V1 range, as well as the Godox AD200 and AD200 Pro.

The kit includes:

  • Soft White Diffuser Dome
  • Black Snoot
  • Colour Gel Kit
  • Black Honeycomb
  • Barndoor with 4 Flags
  • Soft White Diffuser Plate
  • Curved Bounce Card
  • Portable Zipper Carry Pouch

These accessories give you real versatility and allow you to shape the light any way you choose.

The Godox AK-R1 Kit can be found here.

Godox X2T Triggers

Godox X2T Triggers

The Godox X2T triggers are made to replace the Godox X1T, and they use a wireless radio system to control the Godox range of flashes.

The new Godox X2T triggers include additions of group buttons on top of the control unit. These allow you to quickly separate flash units into groups.

The group and function buttons are also all backlit, which makes using them in the dark so much easier.

Another modification is the repositioning of the control dial. It has been moved down to the lower-left corner to reduce the risk of it interfering with camera operation. The LCD display has also been enlarged.

There is also a new scan setting that can automatically detect the clearest channel, and the Godox X2T can now be controlled from a smartphone via bluetooth by the GodoxPhoto app, which is available for Android and iOS.

The transmission range of the Godox X2T is around 100 metres, and it has 32 channels, 5 groups, and up to 99 wireless ID settings.

The Godox X2T is compatible with Canon, Nikon, and Sony Speedlights, and can be used as a shutter release trigger for those camera brands too.

The Godox X2T range of triggers can be found here.
