It recycles really fast. It has a useful modeling light, which is unfortunately a little cool at 48K. Stable color mode. It's a little larger and heavier. Massive heat sink. It looks as though the handle has been upgraded. The bulb design if more traditional. The standard reflector apes Profoto, but looks too big to actually mount Profoto modifiers. We don't know how much it costs.

Also, someone at Godox didn't like the new product being announced just yet, and yanked the page.

Looks interesting! I knew this was on the horizon since Adorama has been dumping their Xplors.

your thoughts?
l

The flash tube / reflector design is very, very similar to Broncolor Siros monolights, only with a Bowens mount. That's interesting.

I'm wondering if there is a deeper partnership between Broncolor and Godox going on besides Broncolor working with Godox for their triggers.

EDIT : another photo that hasn't been posted here yet :

Handle Adjusting Way: Stepless.......YESSS!

Looks very good and going read the rest of the specs. ;-)a

Voltage up to 28.8V so faster recharge and also more power for the LED at 4800K so warmer then the flash light itself.

Less flashes from the battery and I don't know if this is due to the more powerful LED.

Smaller battery, but still probably more than sufficient...but still heavier. Oh well, I guess that's not that big of a deal if there's still a remote head option.

The question of less pops. Well if the flash is 0.7 stops better (using same modifier) then you actually have about 600 pops at the same power as with the standard AD600.

Now both versions are listed as GN87 with their respective standard reflector so time and testing will tell

You forget the increase in voltage and that lowers the mAh value but is does not mean that the capacity is lower.

update: I can now calculate the watt-hours of the two battery packs.

28.8 Volt and 2600 mAh = 74.9 watt-hour (8S which would be 29.6 Volt or 7S which would be 25.9 Volt)
11.1 Volt and 8700 mAh = 96.6 watt-hour (3S2P or 3S3P)

I think the stated voltage of the battery pack is a tat low and high power LED use often 36 Volt and that would be 37 volt from the battery pack.....and that is 96.2 watt-hour.

If it is 28.8 Volt then the LED is 24 Volt.

Yes, at DIYPhotography (external link) there is a picture of the remote head and also an accessory body handle.

This light makes me sad for my Buff stuff.
