Another vote for Godox, just a few months ago I picked up a set of Flashpoints, which is Adorama's brand of Godox flashes.

Does the GODOX support external battery packs? Same connector as the 600EXRT?

They do support external batteries. I think the connector is the same, but not 100% sure. It's under the sensor on the front on my Neewer (Rebadged Godox). Mine was cheap but not cheerful, it's a serious speedlite.

Adorama nor Cheetahstand (From what I could find) had GODOX flashes on their site. If you have links please post them.

I purchased a 550EX ($450-500) with my EOS 3 back in 2000, kept it when I got out of SLR's for 10 year. So, that helped lock me into Canon when I got into DSLR's around 5 years ago. i recently bought a couple more 550EX's for just $75 & $40 each. I plan to buy one or 2 more as that price/power/build quality works for me. I shoot manual with triggers, never used the Canon IR controls. Just another option for someone to consider. I'll have a small bag full of 550EX's and a 430EXII. Decent kit!

I have Canon's 600, 580 ex-II, Metz 58 and a few Yongnuo YN685's.
I did a quick write up of the YN685's and so far they are performing fine. At $100 a unit they are almost disposable. Still prefer my 600 but maybe good little backups.

After reading this thread I may have to check out the Godox.

They rebrand them - same gear, just a different brand name stamped on it. Adorama calls it Flashpoint and Cheetah calls it Cheetahlight I think.

For instance, the Godox V860II ETTL is the same as the Flashpoint Zoom R2 ETTL, is the same as the Cheetah V860X.

I should point out, for those who won't immediately consider this, is that a significant difference in the BRAND (although all three are same unit with different brand labels), is that only ONE of the three seems to offer any post-warranty support for their product, a place to fix it if it fails after the initial warranty period.

He offers after-warranty repair? I was thinking about Adorama when I previously posted.

Mike
Can you shoot a link to the light you are talking about? I've looked at Adorama and all I see for GODOX is the power pack so I am wondering which light you are mentioning.
Thanks.

I just bought this one from Adorama. It has a great solid feel to it. Easy to use so far.
