I am moving over to the Godox lighting system, at the recommendation of many of the photographers here, as well as the interweb's generally awesome feedback on Godox products.
Currently, I have 2x V860II-N flashes and a Xpro-N remote. I am going to expand my event/wedding lighting kit to about 4x V860II-N flashes, probably a Flashpoint XPLOR 600PRO or two, and maybe some AD200/AD360s.
My question to all here is whether it is necessary for me to hold on to my Xpro-N remote, if I plan to use so many V860II-N flashes. I guess this would better be described with a few "sub-questions":
1. Does the Xpro-N offer the exact same capabilities as a V860II-N in master mode?
2. Am I losing any features by using a V860II-N to control other flashes, versus the Xpro-N?
3. Are there any convenience factors I'm missing that you have experienced with the Xpro-N that are superior to just using a V860II-N to control the other lights?
4. I'm guessing the battery life would be better using the V860II-N as the remote, considering the Li-ion battery pack. Anybody have any opinions on this?
Obviously, the remote is cheaper than another V860II-N, but I'm thinking by the time my light kit is complete, I'll have a couple of V860II-Ns to throw on my cameras for use solely as extra on-camera flash/remote combos. So not a huge concern... especially considering Black Friday deals are probably going to be pretty great this year on Godox/Flashpoint.
Thank you all in advance for any feedback you have to offer! I know I could spend hours combing forums for some of these answers, but I'd rather hear it straight from seasoned pros!
