      • similar to an Olympus FL36R in size and style but uses Godox 2.4Ghz system as master or a slave
      • the similar Olympus FL600R might have faster recycle time thanks to 4x AA batteries and has a built-in LED video light and sells for $US299 but lacks the inbuilt Godox X1 radio receiver
      • $US85 GN 36m at ISO 100 and 105mm zoom
      • bounce head, zoom 24-105mm

      • 2x AA batteries, 0.1-2.2sec recycle, 210 full flashes on 2x 2500mAh NiMH batteries

      • 410g w/o batteries
      • similar size and output as an Olympus FL50R
      • uses a 11.1V 2000mAh VB18 lithium ion battery and gives 1.5s recycle time and 650 full power shots

Godox Wistro AD360II bare bulb flash

    • not recommended to be mounted on cameras as too heavy
    • C and N versions for optical remote control (4 channels) but either are used as Godox radio slaves can now be used with any X1 system transmitter (requires firmware upgrade)

  • Godox AD-B2 remote twin head
    • a twin remote head with Bowens S mount and LED modelling lights which allows either:
      • one or two AD200 to connect to this remote head giving up to twice the output of a single AD200
      • one or two AD200 AD200 bulbs or one AD360 bulb (the AD360 bulb is 0.2EV less bright than two AD200 bulbs but almost 1 EV brighter than the AD360 unit itself without the AD-B2 or using just one AD200 bulb with the AD-B2)
      • the AD-B2 allows 1/3rd EV more power than expected

Godox Wistro AD600 / AD600B / AD600M / AD600BM

    • 600Ws powerful portable studio type LiIon flash giving GN 87m ISO 100 AD-R7 standard reflector
    • 11.1V 8700mAh LiIon battery pack attaches to rear of unit and takes 4hrs to re-charge but gives 500 full shots and recycle of 0.01-2.5sec (can attach an optional AC adapter after removing the battery)
    • 4 versions
      • Godox or Bowens S mount (B version) - can buy a Bowens S mount adapter to fit on the Godox version
      • TTL or non-TTL (M model which is much cheaper)
    • 10W LED modelling lamp with 3 output values
    • USB firmware upgradeable
    • optical TTL slave mode with Canon or Nikon
    • Godox radio remote TTL/HSS slave mode with any X1 transmitter (AD-600 requires firmware upgrade)
      • slave in one of 5 slave groups and 32 channels at up to 80m
    • flash duration 1/220th - 1/10,000th sec; strobe multi flash up to 100 times at up to 100Hz
    • NOT able to be mounted on camera - requires a light stand but does incorporate an umbrella holder (although need to buy the optional Godox reflector with umbrella slot in correct position)
    • can be hand held, preferably via the optional AD H-600 / H-600B remote flash head which is much lighter but does drop maximal power output by 1/3rd EV
    • optionally, if you own two AD600 units, you can combine the power output of each into one 1200Ws H-1200 head
    • optional PB-600 portable bag to help carry and operate the controls of the AD600 while using the H-600 head, and the bag helps to keep dust and rain from the unit
    • optional AC power adapter
    • 2.66kg w battery but excl. bulb and reflector

  • the AD600B uses the SAME BATTERY and SAME Bowens S mount as the Godox SLB60W LED light which being a continuous light has its own hand held remote control which works on 433MHz frequency at up to 30m

cross-platform NON-TTL portable flash units

    • similar to V850II but uses 4 x AA batteries
    • multi-system optical and radio remote systems
    • uses a 11.1V 2000mAh VB18 lithium ion battery and gives 1.5s recycle time and 650 full power shots
    • zoom 20-200mm in full frame terms
    • GN 60m at ISO 100 and 200mm zoom
    • can control 6 slave groups and 32 channels at up to 100m
    • as a Godox 2.4GHz slave, can only be controlled by a X1 type transmitter?
    • HSS triggering not available if mounted on camera
    • at $US149, it is a bargain if you only need remote HSS and don't need TTL!
