This has been an issue for a long time and reported many times so why do we need to contact you again about it? A fix in "3 weeks" was mentioned months ago. This reflects very poorly not only on Godox but with Adorama since after all, the product is been sold under your rebranded name.

Does the exposure comp or manually adjusting the power doesn't work when shooting Sony with wider apertures? I know I was able to replicate the issue with borrowed Sony A7rII but I see folks still produce excellent results shooting Sony and Godox at f1.4. Check out manny's work here and youtube.

Just saw someone shooting a wedding here in Taipei using Goodx gear (360).:) Wish I spoke some Chinese, very nice locations near my hotel for model shoots.

you can use FEC, but this is a hassle ... you have to keep in mind to remember to use variable FEC when you go below a certain aperture... what is insulting that Godox releases the new firmware and yet not fix the bug they are aware (if we believe Adorama) about for many month.... as for excellent results - people shoot excellent photos with cell phones too ... does it mean we shall all drop the other gear ? the solution is simple - just add some C.Fn option to include variable/proportional FEC when certain apertures detected and transmitter gets the aperture from the camera - it is communicated by camera to what sits on top of it and pretends to emulate the speedlite... using C.Fn option you can decide to use this or not and Sony transmitter still have unused C.Fn options...

There is nothing to be gained by contacting me, unfortunately. Only by speaking to the brands team directly.

I'm pretty sure they made an offer several months ago that anyone who wasn't happy with this situation could return the items. I don't know if that offer still stands but it might be worth checking out.

You can sell it and buy something that is better. Or maybe hack the firmware and provide a solution, even better. :-D

From my email exchange with the brands team basically all I am told is to keep emailing Godox directly asking for the fix..so I did but we shall see how far that goes.

I thought this issue was limited to TTL functionality. I assume those producing great flash images at wide apertures where the issue arises are shooting manual, which should be an option for many. It doesn't mean I'm not irritated at Godox for not fixing the issue though.

I admit, I've held off buying the AD600 because of the bug (I shoot the A7RII), but may end up picking it up in the next few months with the intent of using it in manual mode when shooting wider than f/4. I'm fortunate that my work (portrait/glamour) affords the ability to shoot in manual if necessary. Some may really need the TTL functionality, and as you suggest, might be better off picking up a ProFoto kit for example.

You can still use TTL as well, all you have to do is add on one stop of FEC for each stop you open the aperture beyond F4.

Its not great to have this issue, though its not the hardest bug to work around either.
