Godox X 2.4GHz radio remote TTL flash and lighting



Image from

Godox smartphone app to control light settings remotely

  • The Godox smartphone app must be paired with a Godox A1 flash trigger via Bluetooth and then can be used to:
    • set the light outputs of each group of lights on each radio channel, including LED lights
    • provide control over multi-flash stroboscopic settings
    • use the smartphone's camera to take a shot and trigger the lights via the A1 transceiver
  • When used in conjunction with a camera with an X1T transmitter, the X1T will need the August 2017 firmware which presumably allows a mode whereby the X1T transmitter's power settings are not used, but it is only used to trigger the lights when the camera fires - the power settings instead are controlled via the smartphone via an A1 transmitter
    • “To add C.Fn custom settings. The transmitter’s parameters that set by Godox APP are not changed. And the transmitter is only for triggering”

  • battery level indicator
  • 2.5mm PC sync cord input
  • Type-C USB cord presumably to charge it

Godox Wistro AD600 / AD600B / AD600M / AD600BM / XPLOR 600

  • see Godox AD600 / AD600B / AD600BM for tests and more details
    • 600Ws powerful portable studio type Li Ion flash giving GN 87m ISO 100 AD-R7 standard reflector
      • Compared to the Profoto B1, the AD600B1):
        • gives 1EV more power when using 7“ reflector and same spread of light (although same output when tested with Godox vs Profoto softboxes)
        • has shorter flash durations and less shot-to-shot variation in output level (B1 had +/- 0.1EV)
        • is lighter, smaller, much more affordable and with much more affordable lighting accessories
        • HSS works at all power ranges not just at the higher ranges
        • gives 500 shots on a full battery compared to only 200 shots
        • transmitter has a hotshoe on it whereas the Profoto one doesn't
        • can use an AC adapter
        • can use one or two onto a remote head to give 600Ws/1200Ws remote head output
        • has a variety of other TTL controllable flash styles whereas Profoto only has studio type flashes
        • but the B1 recycles faster with more accurate color (the AD600 color changes by ~300K at different outputs) and has a better head for applying gels
    • 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)

    • 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 with a 1200W bulb to get an extra 0.7EV light compared to a straight AD600B or 1EV more compared to a H-600B
    • 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
  • my blog posts reviewing and testing the AD600B on Olympus and Sony cameras
  • 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

Godox AC powered studio flash units with 2.4GHz radio receivers but not transmitters

  • these can be used with the 6.2kg Godox LP800x inverter at around $AU995 which has a user replaceable 12Ah lithium ion battery with 3 AC outlets which can thus power 3 flash heads and can give 750W continuous power or 1400W peak power. Also has DC outlets 11-15.5V and 3 USB sockets for USB charging. Can give 500 full output flashes on a 600W/s flash (buy a 2nd battery to double this).
  • for comparison, a 100Ah lead acid battery will weigh around 38Kg and cost about $AU300, then add in a 1000W continuous power pure sine wave AC inverter with dual AC outlets but no USB and no DC outlets at around $AU500 and weigh a further 5kg (3.6kg for a 600W version), which are not easily transported on location for any distance by one person 2)
