GODOX AD200 WITSTRO – Cordless TTL Strobe Released

GODOX AD200

 

Godox have released the ground breaking AD200 Witstro cordless strobe, also available as the Flashpoint eVOLV 200 TTL .

The AD200 / eVOLV are 200Ws cordless Lithium-ion powered TTL and HSS enabled strobes with Godox 2.4GHz X-system radio receiver built inside, compatible with, Canon, Nikon, Sony, M4/3, and Fuji camera systems.

Don’t be fooled by the name or Ws rating though, the AD200 are only around 03 to 0.5 stops less powerful than the well proven AD360II, and come in a remarkably more compact and convenient all in one package.

Being dedicated off camera flashes having no hotshoe, the AD200 provide similar compact size of a speedlite, though with considerable added power.

Another ground breaking feature of the AD200 is a modular interchangeable flash head system, which provides the option of either bare bulb or traditional speedlite fresnel head (fixed at 35mm, no zoom).

With various other head options becoming available, including an LED head, and Ring Light adapters in flash and LED versions.

And to take the AD200 to another level again, there is now also an EVOVL Twin Head Bracket / Godox AD-B2, which will combine two EVOLV 200 / Godox AD200 strobes into a single 400Ws light source!

The twin bracket providing a Bowens S-type mount, and dual unobstructed LED modelling lights.

The bracket can be used with dual flashes for extra power, or with a single flash to add a very useful LED modelling light.

The original AD200 flash bulbs can be used, or a single AD360 bulb centered in the bracket.

    Does anyone try 3 AD200/Evolv 200 in the wedding reception yet? I just got one and tried in the church today (yes, the priest allows us to use flash). The light is awesome. So I was thinking of getting 2 more for wedding reception. Or I may get a few V860 II instead.
    thanks.

    UPDATE – There is a new Mini Reflector (AD-M) for the EVOLV / AD200, now available for pre-order.

    I want to buy some flashes for wedding photography the canon 600ex-rt or the AD200, but Does the AD200 have a short flash duration that helps freze movent as the speedlights (flashguns)? I want to buy the AD200, but would it be able to freze the wedding couple with no problem when they are dancing or when there is a lot of movement?..I have heard that a medium strobe does not freze moving subjects as a speedlight because it does not have short flash duration…I hope to hear from you thank you.

      Hi Yesnia,

      Yes the AD200 are IGBT flashes like a speedlite, which means they have very short flash durations at power levels below full power.

      The lower the power level the faster the flash duration. So with the extra power they have you will likely be running them at lower power levels than a regular speedlite, and therefore durations should be as short or better.

    I will be using the eVOLVs in a commercial shoot over the next few days and decided to test the umbrella mount to see just how durable it is. You can see my results here:

    I thought the Godox stuff auto-switched to HSS when shutter speed goes over the X-Sync speed?? Could have sworn I read that and have had it work before. But this weekend I was shooting outside with the Evolv 200 and I couldn’t shoot above 1/200 on the 5D3. Unless I shut the master off. How does one get auto HSS to work?
