About this deal

Offering 100Ws of power in a compact body (sizing in at just 120x76x76 mm, of the size of a can for scale!), as well as 390 full-power flashes from a single charge of its rechargeable battery! This makes the AD100 Pro perfect for traveling photographers, event photographers, as well as any on-location shoots, due to its wireless, portable and lightweight nature. Now, as a commercial photographer, I tended to stay away from IGBT lights for the more colour sensitive work, basically because the colour temperature would drift towards blue as the power was turned down. Some heads are worse than others, and if you mix IGBT heads with voltage-controlled (full flash curve) heads, you can see the colour difference, sometimes quite dramatically. With this in mind, the colour accuracy mode that featured quite heavily in the AD600 Pro launch was something that piqued my interest. It is true that stereo equipment sold in pieces (radio, amp, cassette player etc.) was always better than an all-in-one set (I am 56 so I remember that). However, I must disagree when it comes to lights. My idea would be to have 1 Pro as the main light where even in a box at 12 feet you could get f8 to f11 on full and still keep 1 sec recycle. Then a couple of the less expensive versions for the other bits where at lower power outputs they will keep up easily. The AD400 Pro has a 30-watt LED light that is crippled by a loud fan. It's great as a modeling light, but too loud for video. The FJ400 has a 20-watt LED light that is slightly less bright but still has an audible fan. Even though it's not as loud, the modeling light still isn't very usable for video. Common Features

Possibly the most controversial change (at least for current XPLOR / AD600 strobe owners) has been the change from a 14.4 volt, to a 28.8 volt battery system.

And that supplied 5″ reflector, providing a broader even light pattern, is nice,thoughover a stop lessbright than the original 600 with supplied 7″ reflector.

First real-world use

The design and construction of the carry bag itself is sturdy, and the componentry fits snugly and securely into the pre-cut foam inserts. The unmatched R2 Radio System links Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm and Olympus/Panasonic seamlessly for the ultimate to remote solutions. The sun is no match to this exceptional performer with superior HSS up to 1/8000s. The new integrated reflector makes the flash ready to serve up some dazzling imagery without add-ons, speeding the way to the finish line. And the broad spectrum of Bowens mount light modifiers available, contours every possible lighting occurrence from studio to peak.

I would like to see this ability added to both the AD400 Pro and AD600 Pro strobes, too, for when dialling in power on the strobe itself. Not having this ability isn’t a dealbreaker, but it’s a handy time-saving option to have in certain circumstances. TT685 and V860II: Full-size speedlights with TTL and HSS (on camera and off). AA batteries on the TT685, proprietary lithium-ion battery on the V860II.UPDATE 2022 – When released in early 2018 the XPLOR 600 PRO / Godox AD600 PRO TTL were another game changing light for Godox and Flashpoint, and set a new standard and direction for the lights to come. And they still remain at the top of their class today. I see these as fixes, rather than new features. As a model incorporating the fixes, it should have been priced the same as the old model (IMO). The colour appeared consistent throughout the power levels – at least, certainly more consistent than the AD200 and AD360II – and the recycle times were very short, even when shooting high speed sync. InNormalmode (not Freeze mode) theORLITRT 610 ranged from 5408K at1/16 power, to 5790K at 1/128power.
