    I just purchased three of these. I hope the infamous battery problems have been sorted out.

    Hi Luke,

    You should be fine, I haven’t heard of any battery issues from stock this year (except for one Neewer branded unit that was likely old stock).

    You have 12 months warranty anyway, and Adorama are good with replacing anything faulty.

    They are really an excellent deal at this price. You pay $130 on ebay etc for the manual only Godox V850.

  3. Luke 2 years ago

    Actually, I just noticed that the guide number is significantly weaker on the Flashpoint unit (34 meters vs 58 meters).

    Are you sure these are technically identical to the V860 speedlites? I’m going to be really disappointed if they aren’t, because I’m upgrading from three V850s due to the poor overheat limits. If these aren’t 50% better like the V860 units claim to be, I’ve literally wasted my money.

      Woh!..

      The guide number has been misquoted, as they are exactly the same as the Godox V860, though I don’t know what you’re referring to with the overheat limits! I’d say they are just the same as the V850 there.

      You should be able to cancel your order though if you need to by giving Adorama a call.

    From your review…

    Other updates from the V850: 30 consecutive full power pops (up from 20) before overheat protection cuts in.

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 2 years ago

      Ok thanks sorry, that should be correct then if your V850 are at 20 pops.

      I’m not sure if later V850 may also be the same as the V860 by now as well though then.

    • alberto 2 years ago

      Luke, if you have three. You should never have to use full power. Well depends on how you use them I guess. I use 3 v850 on a hotshoe tri bracket. Best portable solution back when they came out. Now that the AD360 set is about the same price point. I left that setup.

  5. Luke 2 years ago

    If only there was a website that could test for such an improvement.

    Hmm…

      I’ve already got 8 of them, so I don’t really want to buy more at the moment unfortunately.

      If someone who has purchased a V850 or manual StreakLight lately could try this for us it would be very helpful.

  6. Jonathan 2 years ago

    So those is 100% the same flash as the godox v860? I was debating between the godox and yongnuo 568 ex ii but If this is the same as the godox I might grab one

    • Author

      Hi Jonathan,

      Yes they are exactly the same flash apart from the screen printing. Fully compatible with the Godox branded radio gear.

    Elvis,
    Quick question on the 860 units. In remote controlled manual mode, using the FT16s or whichever unit controls them (for power and to fire), I assume that they are light meter friendly, and that they only become light meter unfriendly when set to TTL. Is that accurate? I also assume that for them to be TTL off camera, that you would either have to use optical CLS triggering or a Nikon compatible trigger like the Yongnuo 622Ns (however, less interested in this answer and more interested in the answer to the first question about being light meter friendly). Thanks.

    – David C.

  8. David C 2 years ago

    Elvis,
    I just read your overview of the 860N, and it answered the second question of mine above (I should have read that first 🙂 ). However, it did bring up another question. Did they ever fix the odd behavior that was being seen in remote manual, where there was a 1.2 stop difference at each 1 stop setting? I was about to pull the trigger on buying one to play with, but after reading the review, I might just wait for the Nikon version of their newest flash when the FT16 receiver replacements come out for the Wistro to support the new X1 triggers.

      Hi David,

      Thanks, yes that is correct, no pre flash with the FT-16 triggers.

      I’ll check the firmware on my V860N and see how the manual power levels look.

      Regarding the X1 triggers, these “should” be compatible with an X1 receiver attached to the foot when they become available. Though the X1 have not been tested at all yet, so nothing is exactly guaranteed there as yet.

        Ok V2.1 still appears to be the latest firmware available for the V860N, and from what I can see that is still 1.2 stops instead of 1.0 between each full power level.

        Godox should be able to fix this eventually though, considering the V850 and V860C appear to be correct.

        • Simon 3 weeks ago

          hi i want to know if this flash is the same as the godox 850 or the 860 flash same exact features??? which one would u buy between this and the godox 860 or 850 if they are the same flash with just different brand names?? thanks…

          • John Wilson 3 weeks ago

            Hi Simon!

            This is identical to the Godox V860. However has been superseded by the V860 II.

            The V850 II supports HSS but only if it is fired remotely by a wireless trigger or a master flash on the camera. The V860 II supports HSS and TTL when mounted on the camera or fired via a wireless trigger. If you don’t need TTL and are happy to have HSS only off camera the 850 is cheaper.

            Both the V850 II and the V860 II have been reviewed in this site – I strongly advise you to read both reviews before deciding what to buy.

            I’d also advise you to read this article in the Godox system as a whole http://flashhavoc.com/godox-flash-system-overview/ It allows you to understand how the various elements of the system relate to each other.

            Hope this helps

    The coupon code is only working with one quantity of the flash. If you select to order more than one online, it only discounts $50.00. Been on live chat with Adorama rep and she doesn’t know why the code isn’t working for multiple orders. Also tried to do a separate order and it won’t allow the code to be reused. Kinda lame and annoying!

    • David C 2 years ago

      Eric,
      I saw the same thing. What I did is I added the promo code, deleted the flash that didn’t get it, and then changed the quantity of the one that did, and it gave me the $100 in the cart (I didn’t end up checking out so can’t say 100% that it would have gone all the way through, but it looked like it was working). Hope that helps,
      – David C.

      Thanks Eric, I’ll let Adorama know.

      Did you try David’s method below yet by any chance?

  10. Eric 2 years ago

    Elvis,
    I didn’t try David’s method. What I did was place two orders from different devices…desktop and tablet. I ordered two so that was my workaround. Pain in the ass but worked.

      Ok thanks Eric.

      The promotion was set up currently just for this site, so its not been uncommon to have a few glitches.

      I don’t think you can find a price close to this anywhere else at the moment so its likely worth the workaround if needed. Adorama may be able to update it yet though.

  11. flash 2 years ago

    Does it included a Lithium-Ion charger for the battery? or does it charge via the flash itself. Too bad it doesnt include the wireless radio.

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 2 years ago

      Hi flash,

      Yes the kit includes a Lithium-ion battery charger dock designed specifically for these batteries.

      So you could have a second battery charging while another is being used in the flash. One battery lasts quite a long time though, especially if the flash is used at 1/2 power or less.

  12. flash 2 years ago

    just checked online. Can Adorama match a deal? other online is offering the wireless trigger too for $10 more.

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 2 years ago

      You would need to check with Adorama about price matching, sorry I’m not sure about that.

      Where did you find the V860 with any radio gear for $140 though? That almost sounds like too good to be true price.

      Also keep in mind Adorama provide good warranty and back up for the price as well.

    Hi Flash, how can Canadians save on shipping at Adorama?

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 2 years ago

      Hi Donald,

      Again I think you will need to contact Adorama on that one.

  14. Luke 2 years ago

    How do we go about updating the firmware on these Flashpoint units?

    Do we just load up the Godox firmware?

  15. Peter A 2 years ago

    Got one! Don’t really need it, but the convenience of not having to worry about changing batteries is so nice. I’ve got a V850 (one died, I think I overheated it) but iTTL should be available if needed. I’m expecting that is a VERY short time they’ll bring out the V2 models with the TTL triggers. But, hopefully, I’ll be using Odin IIs by then.

    Since one of my V850s died I wouldn’t buy the V860 from anyone else but Adorama, because of their excellent customer service. 🙂

    Radio quirk.

    After some quick testing it seems that the manual mode on the Flashpoint Zoom Li-on TTL will not hold when using the 622c’s with a Canon 6D. As soon as the shutter is pressed it switches back to ettl mode. Maybe i’m missing something, but it will hold the manual flash mode when the flash is mounted on the hotshoe.

    • Yuppa 2 years ago

      In it’s most basic setup, the remote 622 should mirror the master 622 (upon shutter half-press)…that is whatever flash mode the camera is in.

      • sabawa 2 years ago

        yup, that fixed it! thanks 🙂

  17. Miles 2 years ago

    I just received mine after seeing the deal here. Thanks! My immediate reaction is that it’s well built and pretty sizable. Similar to my sb-900. Are any of the off brand companies making smaller profile flashed? I generally use my sb-800 when just casually shooting, since it’s smaller.

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 2 years ago

      Hi Miles,

      The YongNuo YN-500EX are one smaller flash, though YN still have not made a Nikon version as yet.

      The Pixel X800C, and soon to be available X800N are a little smaller, possibly close to the SB-800 size.

      There is not much in the SB-700 / 430EX size range otherwise though. That may change as the new 430EX III-RT become more popular.

      The Nissin Di700 may be another option.

  18. alberto 2 years ago

    code doesnt work anymore

    • Author

      Thanks Alberto, yes the deal has now expired.

  19. Markdoxie 2 years ago

    I have bought several of these and can attest to their general excellence. The only fly in the ointment for me is their seeming fragility. I have lost three after small falls. No battery issues at all.

    They have differing behaviors but the constant is they no longer fire. I opened one up hoping to find the broken bits but could not see anything obvious. The internals are well assembled and seem to be of high quality parts ( I am not an engineer) but they still failed after small falls (~60cm).

    Great units but I switched completely to the Wistro (Adorama Streaklight) and could not be happier. I shoot mostly manual so the lack of ETTL was not an issue.

  20. andy 2 years ago

    Does this compatible with YN622C? I’m thinking of getting several if they are compatible with yn622C
    thanks.

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 2 years ago

      Hi Andy,

      Yes they are currently compatible with the YN-622C. There could possibly be some small quirks, though I can’t recall any significant issues off the top of my head.

      The special price deal has expired now though unfortunately.

  21. Zoltan 2 years ago

    OK, I’m happy, but the world isn’t Nikon and Canon merely. There are some other brands too: for me Olympus. Can I purchase a Li-Ion powered TTL flash for Oly at all? Is there anything or shall I change for Nikon?
