Godox AD200 “Pocket Flash” Video Review – By Lood Goosen


Godox AD200 Pocket Flash Video Review – By Lood Goosen

The impressive Godox AD200 is a battery-operated strobe that’s been designed to bridge the gap between large studio heads and speedlights. In other words, it’s an in-betweener model that has plenty of flash output but with a lightweight appeal.  So, if you ever thought that large 600w strobes are just too heavy to lug around and that speedlights aren’t nearly powerful enough, then the Godox AD200 is just the right thing for you!
