MORE DETAILS

 

The AD600B / XPLOR have been very popular since their release in early 2016, in many ways shaking up the strobe lighting industry.

At this stage their popularity is as much about the large ecosystem of compatible strobes which surround them, from speedlites to large AC strobes. As well as the wide range of Canon, Nikon, Sony, M4/3, & Fuji, TTL and HSS compatibility available all in the one strobe, and system.

And the radio slave modes are auto sensing, so different camera systems can be used at the same time with the same set of slave strobes.

Another major practical advantage of the AD600B is the Remote Head options available, which effectively provide a cordless strobe, and pack and head system in the one convenient strobe. Used outdoors with an unmanned light stand, or mounted on a boom arm etc, the remote head can provide a lot more stability.

TTL exposures and FEC adjustments have been quite solid and consistent since release, as well as even HSS exposures (which are available across the power range). And the strobes have proven themselves reliable over time. Battery capacity is very good, and an AC adapter is available for studio type use.

A slightly weaker side of the strobe is currently towards studio style use though. Mainly due to a relatively weak LED modelling light, some color shift across the power range (relatively small), and the physical design of the strobe incorporating plastic swivel handle which locks into set tilting positions.

So the AD600B are currently slightly more oriented to outdoor use than the Jinbei HD 610 below. Though many people are really wanting to use the same strobes outdoors, as well as in a studio like environment. So they are often asking for more of a cross between the HD 610 body style, while incorporating the advantages of the AD600B (like the remote head option).

Another weak point to the Godox system, if you’re a wedding or event photographer, can be combining a master speedlite on camera. Its a good idea to try the Godox V860IITT685, or TT350, to see if you’re going to be content with those first, as they are not yet as refined as the Canon and Nikon etc speedlites.

MORE DETAILS

 

Jinbei are another major strobe manufacturer in China. And although fairly new to TTL and advanced radio systems, Jinbei are now fast putting together their own comprehensive radio strobe ecosystem, incorporating speedlites, portable, and AC powered, strobes.

The HD 610 / ORLIT RT 610 are becoming another popular option in the cordless TTL strobe market, and compared with to the Godox AD600B above, have their advantages slightly more in studio style use (though still very capable outdoors).

This is becasue the HD 610 provide a decent 20 watt LED modelling light, good color consistency, and more of a studio strobe like design, with a smooth metal swivel mount, and rear handle. As well as an AC power adapter for extended use.

For outdoor use there is no remote head option available, so it can take more work to keep the HD 610 stable on light stands or boom arms etc. And HSS is limited down to 1/32 minimum power level. There is also some gradient in HSS exposures (though not generally noticeable in regular images).

As some conciliation for the lack of remote head option, Jinbei will have pack and head version of the strobe available in 300Ws, 600Ws, and 1200Ws versions. So although not as convenient as having one strobe which can do both, you can at least have a mixture of both, and use the most appropriate one where needed.

The HD 610 are currently Canon, Nikon, and Sony TTL and HSS compatible. Though you can only select one radio slave mode at a time. Its not auto sensing like the Godox system, which allows you to use different camera systems with the same strobes at the same time.

The major advantage of the Adorama ORLIT RT, system for Canon users at least, is added direct Canon RT compatibility. And that is on top of the regular Canon, Nikon, & Sony radio slave modes. For wedding and event Photographers using Canon, this provides a large advantage over many other systems available, as you can use the well refined original Canon RT speedlites on the camera as master. And simply expand on your current Canon RT flash gear.

Nikon and Sony users will be relying on Jinbei / ORLIT transmitter units and master flashes, which are quite new and will likely be refined over time. Though TTL exposures etc appear to be quite good and consistent already. As they are with the Canon RT transmitters and ORLIT strobes.

      Hi Kristian,

      Thanks, yes I’m working on a separate page on Portable TTL Strobes, these are just cordless options.

      (And this page is a work in progress as well).

    It’s been reported that Bowens has gone into liquidation https://petapixel.com/2017/07/15/rip-bowens-liquidated-report-says/

    This was first reported 5 days ago. Nobody from Bowens or their owner AURELIUS seems to have commented on this. It is reported that the contact form on their web site no longer works.

    Sony TTL (firmware in transmitter) for Godox / Adorama FlashPoint has a bug they Godox can’t fix for ~8 month by now … buyers be aware

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 2 months ago

      Hi deejjaaaa,

      Thanks, as you know though that’s only a bug with the Sony A7rII, and when using TTL with lens apertures F4 and wider. Also reasonably easy to adjust for with FEC.

      Godox have been busy pushing out M4/3 and Fuji compatibility, so they likely haven’t had time to resolve that Sony bug as yet. No doubt there will be issues to work through with M4/3 and Fuji yet as well.

      Godox are far from perfect, though all systems will have issues like this to work, its constantly ongoing with new cameras etc being released.

      • deejjjaaaa 2 months ago

        > Thanks, as you know though that’s only a bug with the Sony A7rII

        if you believe the statement from Adorama 🙂 … just because the only public test that with data available for everybody to see was done only with A7R2

        > and when using TTL with lens apertures F4 and wider

        but of course as it was me who put the first actual test out to prove the bug with raw files and measurements after reports from vett93 on dpreview forums

        > so they likely haven’t had time to resolve that Sony bug as yet.

        we shall check in 12mo time again then 🙂 …

          I actually ran through the testing with the guys from Flashpoint because they couldn’t replicate the issue at first. They tried other cameras as well and it was only the A7rII.

          No offence, but as a number of people tried to tell you already, you need to keep the explanation as simple as possible. All of your insistence on raw files etc only made it more difficult for Godox and Flashpoint etc to understand the main basic issue. You have to remember this is all being translated to Chinese for the Godox engineers.

          They confirmed issue already though, so all we can do is wait for a solution.

          • deejjjaaaa 1 month ago

            > They tried other cameras as well and it was only the A7rII.

            they ? they (Adorama’s flashpoint brands support) are not to be trusted because I explained the procedure how to replicate the test to them in details, even to the point of screenshots of camera’s settings …

            as for other cameras = https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4172476
            “My Sony A7II has the same problem as well.”
            “Exact same problem here with my A77 II (A-mount body, with latest firmware released in 2014…)”

            > e. All of your insistence on raw files

            indeed, Shua from Adorama tried to argue first based on his “visual evaluation” of OOC JPG files… “visual”, my …read end.

      Hi Sergio,

      Yes, I’m a bit wary of listing strobes like the Trioppo F1-400 & F3-500, because they have mostly disappeared from Ebay, and Neewer don’t appear to be selling them anymore either.

      You want to at the very least know you’re going to be able to get a battery for the strobe in a couple of years, otherwise they are completely useless.

      That may be fine for an $89 cordless drill, though these strobes are not that cheap.

    So looking at the weak points of the godox 600 they seem like simple fixes to me, do you think we will be seeing a new 600 this year?

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 2 months ago

      Hi Jeffrey,

      No unfortunately I think a new model any time soon is pretty unlikely.

      That’s one problem with Godox, they need some strong competition to push them to make the refinements they should be doing anyway. Otherwise they will let it run they way it is as long as they can.

      That would be fair enough if we didn’t know they were spending time and money developing other things that should be far less of a priority.

      With any luck they may read this and try to prove me wrong 🙂

      • John Wilson 2 months ago

        A 400 W/s version of the AD200 would pretty much kill off the AD600 (with a twin head bracket) and the AD360.

        If I was Godox that’s what I would plan to do. Simplifying the offering increases sales and margins.

        • Author
          Flash Havoc 2 months ago

          I don’t think anything is going to kill off the AD600B, though even the AD200 with twin bracket are likely to create a nice dent (provided the bracket is reliable). The power of those shouldn’t be far off the AD600, and they already offer a better LED modelling light.

          That’s just another reason Godox should be updating the AD600B though.

          I think once the majority of people realise the AD200 are actually a reasonable replacement for the AD360II in terms of power, and far more practical, the current AD360II will be history.

          We know a cordless AD360 is the sweet spot though, so its actually a bit frustrating everyone is looking to follow Godox with the 200ws strobes now, instead of a compact cordless 300-400Ws strobe. Its just unfortunate that the AD360II was still fairly new in its lifecycle, otherwise I’m sure Godox are well aware of this as well.

          I was just looking back a the Paul C Buff forum (before it possibly disappears), and he was spot on when looking to develop a cordless 320Ws strobe, with a “very bright LED modelling lamp”. Whether that will ever materialize still I don’t know.

          In any case I think the AD200 are going to shake things up as much as the AD600 did, so at least that’s going to encourages a lot more development in compact cordless strobes of one form or another.

  8. John Wilson 2 months ago

    You, of course, have a lot more experience of and insight into Godox’s likely intentions than I do.

    However indulge me a moment…

    Let us assume that in a year’s time battery technology has moved on enough to make it possible to produce a 5800mAh battery with the same form factor as the AD200’s and that the engineers can upgrade the AD200’s electronics to produce 400Ws. Let’s also assume that there’s already the smarts in the AD200 physical interface with its heads (those 16 or so pins) that let it discover the power consumption limits of the head attached (so if I accidently put an AD200 head on an AD400 it will automatically limit the power delivered).

    Given those big and optimistic assumptions: This time next year Godox launches the AD400 and a bracket that can take two AD200s, two AD400s, or one AD200 and one AD400. By this time most existing Godox users who have are are considering buying an AD600 will have at least one AD200, probably two. Let’s say the AD400 is priced around the cost of the non TTL AD600.

    If you were. say, a wedding photographer would you buy an AD600 rather than adding an AD400 you your bag? If you already had an AD600 would you eBay it and buy an AD400?

    I think I would in both cases, but then I’m not a wedding photographer:)

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 2 months ago

      I understand what you’re saying, though I still don’t think the combination unit is going to completely replace a single larger strobe for all the people that mainly want the larger / more powerful strobe to start with.

      If anything Godox need to be making 1200Ws and larger battery strobe options as well (obviously not completely cordless). Because combining a couple of AD600 is not as practical as one larger strobe for people that want a 1200Ws+ strobe to start with.

      And in the same way, I don’t think even the dual AD200 would completely replace a good cordless AD360 either. I think the dual AD200 is a great option to have (it was originally my concept) though one simple strobe is still going to suit some people better.

      What are wedding photographers going to buy?, well we have seen over the last few years probably 10 to 1 the 360 unit is around the sweet spot that is reasonable power, vs size and weight. So Single/Dual AD200, and a stand alone cordless AD360 are going to be very popular options.

      I don’t know if battery technology is going to increase that rapidly now, though hopefully LED technology keeps improving and evolving as fast as it is now, and they will draw less power still. A lot of enthusiasts, and professional event photographers etc want to use the same set of lights for as much as possible, so incorporating efficient bright LED modeling, and even video light, is the next big step needed.

      • Jeffrey 2 months ago

        I agree with you, for a. Portrait & wedding photographer i think a portable 1200w would be great.

      Hi Jonas,

      If its any help I tried to list the lights somewhat in order of general popularity, which tends to indicate the level of refinement, value for money, and availability etc.

      The Godox AD600B / XPLOR 600, Jinbei HD610 / ORLIT RT 610, and Interfit S1, are generally leading the way currently in the Chinese strobes. Even the B1 have their advantages and disadvantages though.

      If you click on the “More Detail” link at the base of the AD600B and HD 610 sections I tried to provide a bit of an overview of some differences between those.

    Just a quick heads up for anyone in the UK thinking of investing in this kind of photo lighting tech. The NICEFOTO portable strobes as sold in the US coming under the iLUX brand here in the UK and are sold by the dudes at Photomart (Waltehamstow, North East London). They sell both the fully manual and ETTL/ITTL versions for both Canon and Nikon. Here is the link to the manual version: https://shop.photomart.co.uk/lighting-studio/flash-heads-kits/ilux-summit-series.html

      Thanks for that Christopher.

      They do currently appear to be the old versions though which are not compatible with the current radio system for the n6 and K8 etc.

      Its frustrating that Nicefoto keep selling the old strobes like this, I have said to them they should either update them to the new radio system or stop selling them. (The n6 TTL.m is basically the updated version of the TTL-680).
