Godox is well known for producing affordable, high quality lights that a lot of photographers are quite fond of. The Godox V1 is their entry into the round head speedlight market, and it has captured the attention of a lot of photographers, particularly in the face of the much more expensive Profoto A1. Is it the right speedlight for you? This great review will answer that question.
Coming to you from Wes Perry, this excellent video review takes a look at the Godox V1 round head flash. Many photographers were intrigued by this when it first came out, particularly since it came out at a price about a quarter that of the premium Profoto A1. For the many photographers who are invested in Godox's monolights, it's also the logical addition for more portability and for events work. Along with the round head design, the V1 features a rotation range of 330 degrees, tilt range of -7 to 120 degrees, a magnetic modifier mount, 76 Ws of output, a removable battery that offers up to 480 full-power flashes, and a recycle time of 1.5 seconds. It also features High Speed Sync and a built-in wireless receiver, along with an LED modeling lamp and AF assist lamp, making it quite the enticing option. Check out the video above for Perry's full thoughts.
