Quick question.....the ad200 is standard across different platforms (ie. canon, Sony, etc). It’s the trigger that need to be camera maker specific....right?

This may be a silly question that's very easy to answer or perhaps a very difficult question that cannot be definitively answered but.......Which would generate more light and do better for outdoor portraits...

1) 2 good speedlites (V860II & TT685s)
or
2) one AD200

Thanks

One ad200, and the recycle time will be faster if using HSS

1 AD600 and 1 360 at the moment, but considering buying a pair of 200's after testing out my friend's set. I still have one Sony flash for those rare occasions I am limited to a single on camera flash. Now my only conundrum is whether to sell of my Einsteins.

I love these things. So fast to setup and everything is much easier to control than either my Buff stuff with Cyber Commander OR my old Canon RT setup.

A couple of AD200s plus the dual head is a great kit to have, and if you add a couple of the baby TT350 flashes, you have enough versatility to do rim lighting, backdrop lighting with portraiture, etc. All in a very compact amount of space, it all can fit in a very small electronics bag.

It all depends on how you shoot and if/what modifiers you use. I have taken tens of thousands of outdoor portraits in bright sunny conditions over the last few months using a single Flashpoint Zoom Li-on mounted on camera for fill. Of course, that was while shooting on snow in the mountains, which adds lots of nice fill lighting itself.

If you are shooting in the shade, or are using the speedlight for fill with the subject facing away from the sun, you can take some beautiful outdoor portraits. If you want to do the currently trendy thing and underexpose ambient, and/or use modifiers, you will need (possibly much) more power.

My R2Pro trigger and Zoom Li-on R2 (V860II-F) showed up today. Together with my 2 x AD200's and Zoom Mini I now have 4 lights to control.
Totally stoked!!!

I am enjoying Godox gear as well with one exception......maybe people here can help.

Has anyone figured out a workaround for the goofy Godox hotshoe? It doesn't mount in the standard cold shoe mount on my softbox brackets. I've already broken one and had to replace it. I'm sure others have had this issue.

I've got one of these. Anyone know if there's a replacement cold shoe out there that plays well with the Godox hot shoe?

It's the Sony hot shoe that is the problem. They are fragile. I found that trying to use them in cold shoe mounts was risky.

Best to find a way to mount flash without using the shoe or, as you discovered use a flash (AD200) that is intended for bracket mounting rather than camera mounting.

Nothing to do with Godox.

It's exciting for sure. I haven't been able to use my stuff much but having 4 ad200, 4 v860ii and two tt350 all mixed from canon, fuji, sony but they can all work together using any one of them as a master is pretty nuts.


My entire hobby of gear lust has temporarily been shifted into overload. Please be patient while my mind tries to get back onto the road to recovery. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause....
