Godox has a new flash about to hit the shelves: the AD300 Pro. This short video goes hands-on with the new wireless, battery-powered strobe, running through the specifications and testing it at home under coronavirus lockdown shooting conditions.
This short video from Chris Ord should give you a clear idea of what to expect from this compact, 300-watt strobe. The size and weight — a mere 44 oz (1.25 kg) — are certainly impressive, and Godox promises 320 full-power flashes from a single battery.
You can read a full list of the specifications here, though one statistic is missing: the lumens offered by the 12-watt modeling lamp. It offers a color temperature range between 3,000 K and 6,000 K, and the brightness is variable in stops of 1 to 10, but the exact output is not mentioned. This lamp will be one of the main reasons to choose the AD300 over the AD200, and customers will be keen to know exactly how it performs.
The AD300 Pro is expected to retail at £465 in the UK, with a price of around $499 in the U.S.
Would you upgrade from an AD200? Does this look like an affordable alternative to the Profoto B10? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
