    I currently have 2 YN-568 EX speedlights that I use with YN-622N receivers and a YN-622N TX on camera, but would like to add a bare bulb flash such as this AD360II-N.
    My question is if I used another YN-622 to triger the Witstro, would I be able to control the settings with the TX, or if I went with the X1 system, would I be able to control settings on the Yongnuos?

  2. Adri 2 years ago

    Hi, I have a silly question concerning the MF/C.Fn button (function button 1 on the top left).

    Long press is clear (-> custom functions).

    But what’s the MF (short press) good for?
    What does the “MF” refer to? AF versus MF? What does this mean?
    Didn’t find this in the manual.

    Any help? ^^

    • phodelity 2 years ago

      Auto focus versus manual focus.

  3. Gudi 2 years ago

    Just a quick question; we’re to photographers, one being Nikon user and me on Canon.
    I’ve got a few AD360II with the X1 trigger, but it’s for Canon. Can I mount the Nikon X1 with the Canon X1 on top, to share my Godox with my friend?
    Or are there other ways for us to share my flashes?

  4. Gudi 2 years ago

    Just wanted to add something to my question;
    Or are there other ways for us to share my flashes?… so we preserve TTL and remote power adjustments
    Until now we’ve just used pocket wizards, but then we’re back in manual.

      Hi Gudi,

      All your friend needs to do is mount an X1T-N transmitter on their Nikon camera, and you can share either Canon or Nikon version AD360II (and AD600B).

      These flashes will automatically change from Canon to Nikon radio slave mode as needed (when you half press the camera shutter). So you can share lights with full TTL and HSS etc, as long as you are both not trying to shoot at exactly the same time.

  5. CK 2 years ago

    Is there a Sony version in the pipeline?

  6. Mike 2 years ago

    I do not know if a Sony version is on the way but there is now a sony X1 trigger and the firmware update came out today for Sony so unless you need to use on camera either the Nikon or Canon version will be fully synced off camera

    • CK 2 years ago

      But no ETTL?

    Hi
    Could you please help. I currently using two Yongnuo RT-600 with my 5Diii and I use yongnuo 622 triggers. I want to know if I buy the Godox AD360 will the radio systems talk to each other, if not how can I use all of these together off camera?
    Thanks Gary

  9. Gary 2 years ago

    Ps do Yongnuo have anything similar to the Godox ad360?
    Thanks

  10. nixland 2 years ago

    YNE3-RT is not working to control AD360II via YNE3-RX.
    But some said Phottix Laso receiver is working as E3RX replacement.
    Can anybody confirm this?
    I use 5DII, pre 2012 Canon camera.

    • D 2 years ago

      Can confirm. I am using the Laso and the real Canon ST E3 RT, the YONGNUO one will NOT WORK! Unless you have a Canon 600 EXRT to activate the Laso signal you need the actual Canon transmitter to use the AD360II with Laso. 5D3.

  11. Dami 2 years ago

    Hello,

    I just got the AD360II-C with X1-T. There’s this symbol on the top right of the AD360II-C LCD that looks like a speaker/volume icon. Mine has a slash across it, kind of denoting no audio. What’s the icon please? Also, the only I seem to be able to trigger the AD360II-C is when it’s in SLAVE mode and the LCD screen is orange. The firmware on the X1-T is V. 8. How can I trigger the flash in other modes? Thanks a lot.

  12. Gudi 2 years ago

    In the same boat. Can’t seem to get other trigger modes to work.
    There’s a group setting, that I would like to use, as I can turn the flashes off. Think I keeps GR pushed for some time, and I’m able to control power adjustments, but, my flashes doesn’t fire.

  13. PeterA 2 years ago

    First thing to check if things don’t work is the firmware. Update both flash & triggers and see if it works for you then. 🙂 The Godox page is in Chinese but the names of the items are in English. X1-N items seem to work OK after extracted without renaming files (as was needed in earlier versions). Check the firmware update page here on Flashhavoc. Good Luck! 🙂

    • Dami 2 years ago

      Thanks PeterA. It’s in Chinese and I use a Mac. It seems there’s no compatibility yet. The latest firmware for the X1C-T is ver.14. Mine is ver.8. Does anyone have a way around this please? Also, the speaker-like icon at the top right of the LCD of the AD356ii has a slash across. What’s the icon called and how can I adjust it?

  14. Tim Kamppinen 2 years ago

    Is anyone successfully using one of these on-camera? It would be amazing to have the freedom of on-camera TTL bounce flash (being able to move around the room and control your direction of light at will) with enough power to make it viable even in venues with very high/dark ceilings where it often doesn’t work well using a normal speedlight. I’m just wondering what kind of stress that will put on the hotshoe of my camera. A bracket with a ttl cord would work but then it’s just getting more and more awkward and unwieldly.

    • Ulysses 2 years ago

      Tim, are you really considering mounting a CL-360X into your camera’s hot shoe? That’s a lot of weight to carry around all night. Our CL-360Xs are going to live on stands. 🙂

      • Tim Kamppinen 2 years ago

        If I was confident that it wasn’t going to break anything, I would do it, in the venues where it would give me greater control over my lighting. I can handle the extra weight if it will help me make better photos. Thinking about it more I believe the AD360’s have an option to replace the hotshoe with a plate that has 1/4″ threads. Sticking that on top of a small bracket and controlling all the flashes with an X1 transmitter on the hotshoe would probably be the best way to go. Wouldn’t have to be a big awkward bracket with handles and whatnot, just something to hold the flash securely.

        • Ulysses 2 years ago

          You lost me at “bracket”. But I do admire your resolve. 🙂

          Yes, the AD360 comes with a plate to replace the one with the 1/4″ threads. It’s an easy operation.

        • phodelity 2 years ago

          I have done alot of experimenting with this very same idea using my Canon EX580 flash and my Phottix Odin radio transmitter. With plans of getting a Godox 360 and mounting on my Custom Brackets QRS-35-EV bracket that has a cresent moon type track. This allows instant switching between portrait / vertical and horizontal / landscape orientation. With this the speed light stays stationary and only the camera moves when switching orentation. What’s really slick about this is that the flash mounts high enough above the camera that there is plenty of room for a radio transmitter and if you use the new phottix odin ii transmitter it has a autofocus assist light on it. Also I added an extra diy mounting bracket on the Custom Brackets so I can use 2 speed lights at once. Than the next issue to deal with was the weight. I handeld this buy mounting the whole rig on my monopod. This works amazingly well because even in crowded situations the small footprint of the monopod between your feet dosent interfear with anyone. The weight is a non issue and you have all the power for thost high ceilings or wall bouncing. You could even mount modifiers such as a soft box. I personally preferred the beauty dish all though it produces a harsher effect than bouncing.

    • Tim Kamppinen 2 years ago

      My 360II arrived today. First thing I noticed taking it out of the box is how light it felt. I weighed it, as well as an SB910 with batteries. The SB910 was 19oz, the 360II was 31oz. So only a 12oz difference. It does have a locking pin (that works!) and it feels solid on my D750’s hotshoe. I think I may have been overthinking this. I think I will just use it directly on-camera in those venues where I need the extra power, without a flash bracket.

      I don’t think the 12 extra ounces are going to break anything… for comparison, I weighed my large rogue flashbender and it was 7oz, and extends about a foot beyond the top of the flash head, so that setup probably puts as much if not more stress on the hotshoe than just the AD360II by itself… and gives much lower quality of light than bouncing with the 360 will.

      • Ulysses 2 years ago

        I wish you well on that one, Tim. I have less than zero desire to use this light in my hot shoe. But I did test it out a few days ago to see how it felt. I’m not a big fan of that approach, but it can be done. I do have some concern over that sort of stress being placed on the hot shoe; some Nikon users have experience with legacy camera models having issues with their hot shoe when too much stress was placed on them. But never say never, right? 🙂

        • Tim Kamppinen 2 years ago

          Well as I said it will be occasional use. Most venues I can get away with just a regular speedlight and raising the ISO as needed. I have been in a few however where it was just impossible to get anything decent with bounce flash. One that I can recall, for instance, had a matte black ceiling. That in itself is not insurmountable, as later in the night once the dancing started I was able to raise my ISO to 6400 and get great light just by bouncing my 685. However, during cocktail hour there were strong overhead tungsten lights, pointed straight down and creating raccoon eyes on everyone. If I raised my ISO enough to bounce off the black ceiling, the ambient light would have been blown out. I was forced to use my bounce card to overpower the ambient light (praying that at least a little bit of bounce would make it’s way to the background and fill in shadows to make it marginally better than direct flash). The photos looked pretty much like direct on-camera flash. With the 360 I would have had enough power to bounce off the ceiling/walls and still get nice light on people’s faces. Once the overhead lights were turned off for dancing I would have put it away and cranked my ISO with the 685.

          The only thing I’m concerned with is the wide angle reflector of the 360. I wish there was a deep long throw reflector that fit on the 360 head directly. Something like the Colt 45 that cheetah sells but in miniature, that would mimic the way I use a regular speedlight (usually zoomed out to 200mm, flagged with a foamie snoot, often bouncing the light off a wall on the opposite side of my subject to give short light on the face). With the wide reflector I won’t have as much control over the direction of light.

  15. PeterA 2 years ago

    Tim Kamppinen — Totally agree that the 1/4″ holder should attach quite firmly to something like a Flip-Flash bracket for on-camera like use. Biggest problem I’ve seen with brackets is that there isn’t enough distance on top of the camera to put the trigger without the bracket interfering. A TTL cord may still work in that case. Good Luck! 🙂

    • nixland 2 years ago

      But it will put lot of stress on ttl cord hotshoe 🙂

      • Tim Kamppinen 2 years ago

        Nixland, my idea was to bolt the flash directly to the metal bracket and control it with the X1 transmitter… no TTL cord needed in that setup.

        Peter, as for not having enough room for the trigger, I don’t see why this couldn’t work with a simple side-mount bracket, like the kind people used to use to mount the Metz “potato-masher” flashes. Only issue is that it would change the balance of the camera, but I’d have to try it to see if it was that big a deal. I’m not concerned about sideways shadows or anything because if I do this I don’t plan to ever take a photo using the flash direct on my subject, it’s just to have a more powerful bounce flash, which doesn’t have to be centered on top of the camera to work well.

        Something like this, although I’m not sure if this particular model is big enough: http://www.custombrackets.com/products/camera-flash-brackets/cb-mini.html

        • Hung 1 year ago

          Tim, I’m using flash mount on bracket as well, but one problem is flash won’t trigger when too close range. It does trigger when put flash far away from X1 transmitter. Too bad it doesn’t work for close range. I don’t want to use TTL cord which can break due heavy flash head and also doesn’t work FEL when put on hotshoe. That’s disappointed. I’m still using Quantum X5DR on bracket anyway (without HSS).

            Hi Hung,

            From firmware version V15 for X1T-C transmitter, Godox have added a close range mode (0 – 30 meters).

            To enter the mode – hold the TEST Button while switching the transmitter ON, holding on until the STATUS indicator lamp blinks twice.

            • Hung 1 year ago

              I found out my firmware v13 which is old. I upgraded new firmware v17. Now it is working. If power cable near or touch on X1T-C transmitter, it won’t fire. So I put power cable away from transmitter should be no problem. Thanks for help.

            • Niels Gram 1 year ago

              A close range mode ? That really sucks 🙁

    • JZ 2 years ago

      I have used the 360 on a flash bracket before. Its not that bad but it does get tiring. I only used it for events
      This is the one I use http://amzn.to/1rwROtx Btw i seen it with some so profoto b2 mounted on it.

  16. Nicolas 2 years ago

    Hi,
    Do you know if the replacement flash tube is the same for AD380 and AD380II ? Can’t find the info on godox website.

    Also, can I have an X1-C handheld to change V850 and AD380II power remotely, but fire them with phottix strato receiver (and transmitter on camera) on V850 hotshoe and cable connected on the AD380II ?

    • Nicolas 2 years ago

      Hi,

      sorry was talking about AD360II (not 380 of course)

  17. Tim Kamppinen 2 years ago

    Has anyone tested the HSS on the AD360II to see if there’s a gradient? I had the original 360 and the bottom of the frame was significantly brighter than the top. With the AD600 there is no gradient at all, which is awesome. Here are my test shots (f/5.6 to eliminate lens vignetting, light bounced to make sure the wall was evenly lit, and iso adjusted with shutter speed to keep exposure constant): http://www.timkphotography.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/AD600-HSS-Gradient-Test.jpg

    If someone has done a similar test with the 360II I’d love to see it. I’m debating between getting a 360II or another AD600, and if the gradient issue has been eliminated on the 360II that’s probably what I’ll go with.

    • Ulysses 2 years ago

      Tim, I know we’ve had other discussions elsewhere about this question, but I thought I’d post my answer here in case it might benefit others. 🙂

      Here are my comparison images shot with the CheetahStand CL-600X and the CheetahStand CL-360X.
      Note that my shutter speeds actually range from 1/60 thru 1/8000.

      Camera: Nikon D4S with aperture of f/8
      Lens: Nikkor 85mm f/1.4
      Trigger: X1T-N for Nikon

      Both flashes were bounced into a wall corner, not perfectly white — there are elements of a warm grey on the wall, but it’s the best I could do in the room. The actual warmth in these tests comes mostly from my camera setting with a WB of 5560 K to maintain a constant white balance rather than auto WB. Also note that the CL-360X was shot with its stock 5” reflector with the stock diffusion discs. These discs to MY eyes are a bit cool, perhaps because they’re brand new. Therefore, I believe this accounts for the slightly cooler row of CL-360X tests.

      As you mentioned for your own tests, with each 1-stop increase in shutter speed, I also increased the ISO. As you can see, the point at 1/250 sec is the threshold at which I experience a very noticeable gradient — the D4S has a single Auto FP point at 1/250 sec. I’ve always dealt with this. Once you cross that threshold, things look nice and pretty again, with very little to no gradient from either light all the way up to 1/8000 sec.

      Click on the URL/photo below, and zoom in to read exposure details.

      TOP ROW: The CL-600X set at 1/4 power.
      BOTTOM ROW: The CL-360X set at 1/2 power.

      • Tim Kamppinen 2 years ago

        Thanks again! I just placed an order for the AD360II. It was between that and a manual AD600… I figured that it’s unlikely I would ever absolutely NEED two AD600’s at full power, and having the smaller/lighter option would be nice for weddings or whenever I want to stay more mobile in portrait sessions. And of course I’m still eager to try it out as a bounce flash… 🙂

        • Tim Kamppinen 2 years ago

          I also picked up the AD-S7, godox’s 18 collapsible softbox that mounts right on the 360. It comes with a grid and I’m thinking that the 360 equipped with this will make an amazing soft rim light when using the 600 as the main.

    POCKET WIZARD FLEX TT5 AND GODOX WISTRO AD360

    I know people hate pw triggers especially the flex units but I was really interested in the function called speedcycle that allows sequential flash bursts first zone A then zone B the C.

    This allows you to fire a burst of three frames using 3 different flash units for fast recycle.

    For a single flash outdoors I was happy using the Yongnuo trigger with the godox trigger on top to HSS up to 1/8000 although I only wanted to use 1/2000th
    (I know the X1N can now do this on it’s own).

    I thought HSS was the way to go as I could only seem to get 1/1000th flash out of HYPERSYNC using Flex tt5 and pocket wizards on the flash.

    The set up for my HSS with Pocket wizard was three AD360 each fitted with a flex tt5 and a mini tt1 on the camera body with a AC3 zone controller on top that allowed Sequential speedcycle capability.

    The HSS on the PW units was very hit and miss and over heated the flash units a little as I needed to fire them at full power for full length shots of a runner. They do work at various power levels though for closer portrait work.
    The HSS was so hit and miss it would often misfire or I would have to reset my camera.
    This wasn’t a godox issue as it never happened with the Yongnuo triggers.

    I then tried HYPERSYNC settings through the pocket wizard utility software and selected Hypersync only.

    I set the Hypersync speed to (fast 1) in the menu as I know the flash duration of the wistro ad360 is super short.

    I then set my flash to full power as Hypersync will not work below full power.

    My maximum flash sync?……….1/8000th sec HYPERSYNC

    So my outdoor flash set up for freezing movement with a burst of 3 frames and using strobes is now three godox AD360 strobes each with a PW flex tt5 conected with a mini jack for a 3 flash sequential bursts using the AC3 zone controller in speed cycle mode.

    Has anyone else tried this speedcycle set up?

    It would be great if sequential zone speed cycle was adopted by other flash triggers as the PW flex units are pricey.

      Hi Andy,

      Thanks for that.

      The AD600B, and coming QT600IIM actually have a delay and Mask feature, which uses sequencing to fire different lights in a sequence, so only the background lights fire in one shot to create a silhouette and clipping mask.

      So I’m not sure yet, though this sequencing may possibly be able to be used in the same way as the speed cycle. (I’ve only just got more AD600B strobes now to be able to try this feature).

      Either way I’ll make a note of this and see if it can possibly be implemented through the lights or transmitter otherwise.

      • Andy 2 years ago

        That’s interesting.

        I don’t really want to buy new flashes as I really love my AD360’s as they are super light to taking on trips.

        The new XT32 transmitter looks interesting as it seems to have the delay feature you mentioned.

        I don’t know whether this allows the function to work with normal AD360’s with the new usb transmitters or whether you also need this function on your strobe. Fingers cross it will as I’ve started to use the sequence firing so much in my sports work and I would love a simpler trigger system.

        I must say though that the Hypersync at full power uses less juice than the HSS at full power.

        Unless the new XT32 does hypersync too!

        Cheers,

        Andy

    Hello everyone. I’ve been searching online for tutorial and photo shoot videos using the Godox AD360ii, but can’t seem to find more than about 3 that are not “unboxing” videos. Anyone know of any links I could watch?
    Thanks.

    • Tim Kamppinen 2 years ago

      Try searching for CL-360X (the cheetahstand name for it) and you’ll find some videos.

      It’s a playlist of YouTube videos compiled for the CheetahStand brand of Godox products. But the essential instructions would be the same regardless of which branded version you choose to buy and use. Enjoy!

  20. Frederic 2 years ago

    Hi
    I have spent some time with my AD360II, and I also bought a flash meter. I have a issue with the power output. I trigger the AD360 with the test X1 button to measure my flash, and then put the X1 on my nikon, and shoot. But if I measure the flash output when triggered by the camera, it’s actually 1.3 stop less !

  21. Frederic 2 years ago

    Yes, manual mode.

  22. Frederic 2 years ago

    More tests : if I trigger the AD360 with optic sensor, it works perfectly. So, there is a problem with my X1. If someone could do the same test, to see if it’s a firmware issue ?

  23. Frederic 2 years ago

    Some test again. I found something interesting ! If I put a Yongnuo RF603 between my D800 and the X1, it is actually working as expected. But by doing that, I loose the HSS and TTL capabilities.
    So there is something wrong in the little pins of the X1 ?

  24. Glenn Nakamichi 2 years ago

    I want to get the AD360ii to use on-camera using a bracket. I use a rotating model from Custom Brackets with a Quantim T5d. Balance is great for both horizontals and verticals since the camera rotates and not the flash. The design clears the Quantum TTL sensor on the hotshoe.
    My question is regarding the auto focus assist beam of the AD360ii. I see one listed in the specs. Does it emit a pattern or just illumination? Is is powerful enough? How effective is it?

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 2 years ago

      Hi Glenn,

      The AD360II have just the same AF beam as the original AD360 as far as can see. Which is basically just a round blob of red light. I don’t think its intending to project any contrast pattern, though if you get close enough it looks like a circle in the middle with a single ring surrounding that.

      So its basically just like a small red LED torch light. And if the subject does not have any good contrasting pattern / lines of its own AF will still be difficult.

      I’m a bit surprised Godox did not at least add the lazer style AF light used in the speedlites etc. Though they likely realise the flash is too heavy that most people would not use it on camera anyway. I would think that’s why this question has not come up yet previously.

      If you’re using Nikon by any chance, their TTL cord with AF light built-in should do the trick. For Canon I guess you could possibly mount the cord on top of an YN-622C transmitter on the camera hotshoe.

      I’m not sure using the Godox X1 transmitter would work too well, because it seems the Godox 2.4GHz systems is developing some quirks if used at close range between transmitter and receiver. It may be worth a try though.

    Hi, can I please get some clarification as I don’t own any of these Godox flash heads and I have several questions. Thank you in advance for your time.

    I watched this video and the presenter purchase an X1 transmitter/receiver kit for this 360II flash. Isn’t the receiver already built into the unit? It would seem only the transmitter is needed:

    https://youtu.be/pM8ImtpRoU4

    I am thinking to later add the QT600II mono light. Would an XT32 be the better transmitter to purchase seeing as TTL is not supported on the QT?

    I noticed Adorama’s version of the transmitter which looks like the X1 is called an R2. Is this the *same* transmitter as the X1 or are they different?

    If I purchase the S-style speed light bracket for Bowens, what would be the most suitable size/diameter for an octa style softbox the for the 360II?

    Thank you again.

    Nice video. But I can see why you were confused and needed some clarification.

    The AD360 II bare bulb flash has a 2.4 GHz receiver built into the unit. You do NOT need to buy another receiver for it if you are also using a transmitter such as the X1T, the XT16, or the XT32 dedicated transmitters (or another AD360 II or a V860 II or similar flash likewise operating on the 2.4 GHz frequency).

    As for your transmitter purchase, the choice is wide open in your case. You may want to standardize on the X1T, which could easily control the QT600II if you operate the transmitter in manual mode. Alternately, the XT16 or XT32 would be just fine.

    Adorama sells the X1T transmitter, but they call it the R2 transmitter. You need to be careful when buying the correct R2 for your brand of camera.

    As for the most suitable octa style of modifier, again the choice is up to you. But often the more common sizes range between 16″ and 33″. Take a look, experiment, and see which size works best for your workflow and tolerance level.

      Hi Rafa,

      I assume you are mean using an Odin receiver attached to the AD360II foot? (Because there is no direct radio compatibility between them otherwise).

      I gave it a quick run using the Odin 1.5 transmitter for Canon, and Odin receiver attached to the AD360II-C, and from what I can see so far they appear to work well together. TTL, HSS and remote manual all appear to work.

        Have you also tried this with a yn622c-tx? I would like to be able to control power and ettl ratio with this flash.

    Hello, if you put the Godox AD360II in the shoe of the Canon 5DM3 shooting in TTL ?
    Gracias

    After digging the whole thing up, im still wondered what to get, between this AD or other “pack and head” biggies like: The RS 600P or Jinbei Discovery 600. I’m no-monoblock type, too heavy head.
    So my question is: This AD 360 with this type of HSS, will the power will be dropped? (i heard that with its HD 600, HSS wont drop the power of the flash – which is very technical to understand)

    Thanks guys

    I posted a message yesterday but not sure if it submitted.

    Can someone please tell me if I attach my Yongnuo YN622C receiver on the shoe of the AD360II-C – can I control the power output, etc. just like my Canon speedlites?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the great overview. I did have one question. Is it possible to add more groups like on the AD600? I would love to have the 5 Group option A,B,C,D,E

    I am trying to decide what I will gain getting the nikon ttl version of the AD360II-N versus the standard AD360.

    I use the PocketWizard FlexTT5 units for Nikon with the AC3 Zone controller. If I add the AD360II-N with its own flexTT5, will it do the following:
    1. Operate in iTTL mode, and get measured as an ittl light?
    2. Will I be able to adjust the output of the AD360II-N from the AC/3 controller on my camera in either auto or manual modes?
    3. Operate in HSS or HYPERSYNC mode via the PW? ( It sounds like this is good based on a previous comment.)
    TIA for you response.

    Hello there,

    I just bought a Ad360ii, I noticed a slight play of the head in locked position (rotative sideway), I was wondering, if some had noticed the same? I am just hoping this is normal, and is not going to get worst as time goes by.
    Cheers

    Mains adapter.

    Do you think we will ever see an ac mains adaptor for the wistro 360.

    I mostly shoot with battery but an ac option would be so cool.

    I had an ac unit with the Quantum qflash and it never blew a bulb

      Hi Andy,

      Stranger things have happened, though I doubt it.

      I went to buy an AC adapter for the Phottix Indra500 last week and they are not even available anymore either.

      So there’s likely not a big demand, and its in Godox’s interest to turn over more batteries anyway.

      I think the current AD360 / II will be a think of the past once there are cordless version like the AD200 available. Godox are just trying to squeeze the most out of the current AD360II first.
