I have an idea for a 3D-printed umbrella holder to go along with the screw-in umbrella slot. It'd basically go on the back, lining up with the screw-in umbrella hole to give a second point of contact with an umbrella shaft for stability. Has something like that already been made? I checked Shapeways but didn't see anything.

There is already a reflector/umbrella holder from Godox, Google ad-s6 for more info.

I am aware of that, I have a couple of them. The thing I'm thinking of would work in tandem with the AD-S6 to add an additional point of contact with the umbrella shaft.

The 2 points work now for me, I guess I don't know what a 3rd point will provide, but go for it!

I think this was mentioned a few pages back but I missed it.

Anyone notice their battery indicator shows it's fully charged after multiple uses?

I ran my ad200 for a reception and three separate hour and a half headshot sessions and the battery still shows it's full. When I charged it the charger showed 75% full. Maybe the battery is really that strong?

500 full power pops. Chances are your popping at 1/4ish means you should bet 1500+

I've read this thread from about page 40 onward. A lot of good information here! One thing I haven't seen mentioned in the dual AD200 vs one AD600 debate is the ability of the AD600 to be plugged in (with the $100 accessory) if need be. Is that not considered by most users because of the long lasting batteries of both devices? Are most working outdoors vs inside?

The AD200 batteries are small, and you can get them for around $50. Much like cameras, you always keep a few spare with you.

I think it's down to the fact that the AD600 is a full sized studio light that happens to be battery powered,. where as the AD200 is the most compact strobe one can get (short of going to a speedlite) who's key feature is lightweight/portabilit​y. Godox aren't considering any thing that makes them less portable.

It's the same reason they won't let me plug my Godox PB960 battery packs into the damn thing! :(

I kinda feel the same.

add me to the list of owners. Got my 3 lights tonight along with S holders and an X1T. What I like best about the X1T is that I can add another trigger on top for my older stuff just in case I need more lights. Doing some larger product photography in not so ideal conditions at times. Cant wait to put them to work.

airbutchie - Joe was definitely right about adding contrast...

As someone who used to work as an assistant, I hate dealing with wires!

I do agree it is a nice option, but one I likely wouldn't use. The 600 to 1200 and remote heads for the 600 are the biggest difference makers to me.

And that one fact is one that keeps making me wonder if I need the Xpro that was just announced, or whether I should continue to live with the less friendly X1 module. I used to have a farm of YN622 units, and have sold them all off except for 2. I thought that there might be a time I would need to incorporate something else that wasn't Godox R2, and having the shoe on the X1 would allow me that luxury.

Perhaps I could just go with the Xpro and use this splitter when needing to fire the YN units? :D
