Nick also wrote me:

I had a ***** of a time doing the firmware update. All sorts of errors and issues with windows 10. Turns out it’s the micro-USB cable. Try different ones. The one o had wasn’t a cheap or low-end one. But at my wits end, when I tried a different one. It went like silk.

The Astonishing Efficiency of the Godox/Flashpoint AC Adapter – by Fujifilm GFX 50S Shooter Markus Klinko

guest post & all images by Markus Klinko

When I initially began to integrate Flashpoint XPLOR H1200 into my workflow, HSS, portability and the long lasting lithium batteries were key factors in my decision to switch from Broncolor to Flashpoint/Godox.

With the release of the 600 PRO earlier this year, I began to add more units, enough to be able to light for any conceivable studio or location requirements. I may use as many as 20 lights for a setup, or just one, but for sure I like to always have a good number of spares available.

On a recent shoot with singer/actress Becky G for the cover of GALORE magazine, and another shoot for VOGUE, I needed to have various set ups ready at once. I used only a single 600 PRO inside a modified BRONCOLOR FLOOTER S for a series of dramatic sky shots in HSS mode, and also a late afternoon pool shot, but I needed 20 units to light a series of colorful, 2000s pop inspired studio shots.

Godox AD600 PRO Review, Part 2: Ready for Prime Time

FUJIFILM GFX50S, 63mm lens, iso 100, 1/125, f11. The Pro set at 1/4 power in regular flash mode recycled almost immediately, a welcome and noticeable improvement from the older model.

Is the Godox Witstro AD600 Pro a substantially better flash than its predecessor, the AD600?

I have now had the Godox AD600 PRO in my hands for 48 hours, since posting my ‘first impressions’ review. What have I discovered since, and is it a substantially better flash than its predecessor, the AD600?

I used the brand-new Pro unit earlier today on a fashion shoot for Berlin-based fashion brand, Hadas Hinkis.

Since in my first round of clinical testing, I had already determined that one PRO has roughly the same output as the twin H1200, when paired with the legendary Broncolor Flooter S, I felt confident to bring only the PRO on set.

As expected, the PRO performed flawlessly during the entire shoot.

Godox AD600 PRO Review, Part 1: First Impressions

The Godox Witstro AD600 PRO has landed! Markus Klinko offers an early hands-on review, with comparisons to the original Godox H1200.

guest post by Markus Klinko

Today, as everything in Shenzhen is coming to a shrieking halt, for Chinese New Year’s celebration, a DHL box arrived from China at my studio, containing the first actual production model of the much anticipated AD600 PRO.

Ever since it was announced first, on October 25th of last year, that a PRO version was rumored to be in the works, speculations on the internet about this new model have run wild.

If you have read my previous article, you know by now that I have been quite enamored with the H1200, the previous Godox flagship portable flash, powered by two AD600 units.

Now, seeing the new PRO version in person, it is a stunning achievement by Godox, and perhaps another nail in the coffin of the established European flash brands and their ill-fated battery powered products.

Make no mistake, the guys in Switzerland and Sweden still make some of the best studio units and special light shaping tools.

But in terms of portable battery flash, Godox has just crowned themselves as the undisputed king of the business!

The Pro is an incredibly well designed and highly efficient light and will be for sure the market leader for some time to come.

New Creative Opportunities: Godox H1200 and Crossbrand Adaptations (on Fujifilm GFX 50S)

New Creative Opportunities: Godox H1200 and Crossbrand Adaptations

There are hundreds of modifiers out there with Bowens mounts…but which are any good?

gues post by Markus Klinko

With the emergence of the Fujifilm GFX medium format camera in January of 2017, I became very interested in high speed flash sync.

Until that time, for most of my work, I used medium format cameras with leaf shutters, that provided sufficiently fast flash sync, up to 1/1600, with certain configurations.
But flash duration really was always my main concern, and I simply did not worry about needing to sync at any faster shutter speeds.

As I started to explore how High Speed Sync (HSS) and/or Hyper or Hi Sync (HS) could open up new creative possibilities, in conjunction with a medium format mirrorless camera, I looked at all available options, offered by the established companies such as Broncolor, Profoto and Elinchrom.

It is important to be very clear that there are basically only 2 different ways to sync at high shutter speeds: With HS, as used by Broncolor and Elinchrom, a very long flash duration is needed to provide a flash long enough, where a portion of that flash can be efficiently synced up with the shutter at high speeds. With HSS on the other hand, (the brands that use this method, such as Profoto, Godox, Jinbei and many speedlites), a rapid sequence of pulsating flashes, creates a very even and reliable solution. While HSS provides a smoother and more even exposure, it can lack the power of a ‘normal’ flash.

For almost all of my career, I exclusively used Broncolor, and even collaborated with the brand for about 10 years, for many marketing and promotional campaigns, including their launch campaign for the original Para 330, in 1999.
