Hi all. I picked up an old Neewer NW680, but can't find the manual for it online. (even their own site is of no help) Anyone here have one available, or perhaps a digital copy?

Thank you in advance!

I read that the Neewer NW680 is the same flash as the Godox TT680. Here is the manual (external link) from Godox. Hope this helps.

Hey there. Thanks for the reply! I actually stumbled across this fortunate little factoid last night myself. There are a few features that are different or non-existent between the two (no USB on the Neewer, slightly different display, etc) but the core of it seems to be identical. Definitely good enough to learn what the Neewer can do. I do like your version a bit better, as the one I found had an introduction in Chinese that was unfortunately lost on me. Thanks for sharing!

Hmm, looks like the search continues. There appear to be just enough differences between the Neewer and Godox that the original manual would still be best. For example, FEC on the Godox allegedly can only be changed in the TTL mode, yet this will not work at all on the Neewer. It needs to be in manual for FEC to be adjusted. Not a huge deal, but makes you wonder what settings there may be on the Neewer that may not be deduced intuitively.

There are two versions of the 680.
Here is the Godox page (external link) with manuals and firmware. My guess is that you have a V680.

Hi, thanks for the tip. You may be right, but unfortunately there is no entry on that page for a V680. They do have a V860, but that's definitely not it.

One other thing I noticed: although the flash works gangbusters on my old 550D, it won't work on much else. Wouldn't do anything on my 1Ds MkII, even though that is an ETTL-II camera (just like the flash). Also tried it on my 1V, and all the flash did was totally lock the camera up while the flash was on the hot shoe. I can understand that their software would be questionable on the older stuff, as they would not worry too much about backward compatibility like Canon itself. But I was surprised that it wouldn't work on an ETTL-II body. May be time to just break down and get a Canon 580ex (II, of course)
