FLASHPOINT XP600 PRO – 600Ws Extension Head Announced

XP600 PRO

 

Flashpoint have announced the XP600 PRO 600Ws Extension Head for the XPLOR 600 PRO and Godox AD600 PRO TTL strobes.

And the XP600 Extension Heads are available for pre-order now from Adorama for $129.00.

The all important remote extension head allows the otherwise cordless 600 PRO TTL strobes to be converted into a pack and lightweight head system, for when that configuration is more practical.

Ideal for mounting the flash on a boom arm, or using the flash body as ballast at the base of a light stand for greater stability when using outdoors etc.

 

 

XP600 PRO

 

The XP600 Extension Heads feature the same nicely refined smooth action metal swivel mount, and S-type modifier mount as the 600 PRO strobes themselves.

The same flash tube from the strobe is used to plug into the Extension Head. And an LED modelling light is also provided in the extension head.

The connection at the flash end has been refined into a one piece unit, with the cord now attached at one side.

And there is now a hole in the center of the cap, so the LED modelling light should no longer melt the cap if that accidentally came on (although that shouldn’t be happening).

    This would be REALLY great if Godox introduced a modified AD600 Pro that allowed the use of an extension head while retaining use use of the on-board flash and modeling light. Then you’d have a fantastically compact and versatile two-head system. I know this is easier said than done. They’d have to find room for a socket (or maybe a pigtail connector) and modify the software and capacitor arrangement to allow for symmetrical and asymmetrical power distribution.

    Looks a nice design. I’ve got a couple on pre order from Pixapro so hope to try them out soon.

    All I can say is: Keep up the great work Godox/Flashpoint!

    I hope the cable is in the 6′ to 10′ range. Which should be sufficient for the majority of applications. At this price range, I think Godox/Flashpoint did the right thing by making the cable connection on the flash side permanent. Eliminating a lot of potential reliability issues. It looks like the battery-end is detachable which would be great for portability/packing.

    At this price range, Godox/Flashpoint could come out with a 12′ – 25′ version for $149 – $159. Or if the cable is truly detachable at the battery-end, they could price units individually. You can buy 1 strobe piece and a couple of differently-sized cable ends.

    I would say that the only thing left now is to have a dual-cable connector like they did with the AD200s… But that may be impractical as if you were using a two-light setup, you would need long cables and that could put a lot of strain on the battery-end.

    There are three things I would like to see Godox/Flashpoint do for their products and company:

    * Improve marketing programs.
    – They have really great products and they need to get the word out more! Especially to the higher-profile professionals. You need to see “Godox” or “Flashpoint” in images where big and expensive shoots are being shown on places like Instagram and Youtube.
    – Godox seriously needs to modernize and spiffy-up their website. Yes, they put out the details just fine. But how about great and professionally produced videos on real professionals using their equipment during shoots? How about a banner that pops up when you visit their site asking if you want to be on their mailing list to receive updates? Even better, that you get a certain percentage off your first order when you join? Make the website more modern and prettier. It matters.

    * Accessories.
    – As it’s becoming harder and harder for me to think of things they can invent on the ‘main-gear’ side of things, they should start making more serious inroads into the accessory side of things. Bags, cases and easily removable light-color modifiers. So many options. Just keep the quality high.
    – I would also say light modifiers but that’s an especially tough nut to crack. I’m seriously devoted to who I currently use. I can tell you which modifier I used on the shoot just by looking at the image. There would be so much R&D necessary to have something so special to get people to switch.

    * Support. I haven’t heard too much noise about quality issues on Godox/Flashpoint products. My V860II speedlites have been absolutely fantastic. For the current products, just keep improving firmware for performance/reliability/functionality in that order. At these price points, I’m not sure how great technical support should be or how a pro-support program should be structured. A certain amount should be available though with good response times. But considering the cost of units and to keep costs down, support should be paid by the caller unless there is a known defect. It would also keep the people away who are too lazy to go through documentation or haven’t practiced enough with the gear and wants hand-holding.

    The Design Team and testers/influencers have been doing a fantastic job over at Godox/Flashpoint. Lots of great gear at both the amateur and professional levels. Again, keep up the great work!

    Do they have repair centers yet? Other than limited waranty some resellers offer to get them replaced once they break, instead of just fixing them.

  5. dave 1 week ago

    Godox do allow dealers to order replacement parts. And from having spoken with a few repairers their lights are not overly complex to repair.
    I can not speak for every importer/retailer/dealer but i know of some that offer warranty support.

    Nice! I can’t wait for the XP1200 PROs to come out. Maybe I’ll make an excuse to upgrade.

    I’d love to see them evolving their COB LED lights!

    Well let’s see if this is going to take s long as the EC200. I am still waiting for the AB-12 friendly version.

    I hate when a product is announced and its not ready for the market yet. Thats just me personally.

  9. vishnuprasad 1 week ago

    I will not buy anymore. Suddenly stopped working no service center to fix.

    The Flashpoint versions of Godox products have been very reliable for me.
    I chose Flashpoint specifically because it is a brand offered by Adorama and as such needs to be supported by them if only to preserve their reputation.
    Godox has no service in America that I am aware of and thus even though the products may be great I know that sooner or later I will need service.
    All my Buff, Hensel and Bowens flashes have needed service at one time or another and even the need for a spare bulb can knock you out of business.
    So far Flashpoint have been actually more reliable for me than the better known brands.
