Godox Announces New AD400Pro

By Holly Roa on July 10th 2018

Fans of Godox’s lighting are in for a treat – the brand has just announced the new AD400Pro.

Over the past few years, Godox has shaken up the location lighting dynamic, beginning in earnest with the AD600 battery-powered monolight. By delivering features aligned with much more expensive brands’ offerings at an impossibly low price point, Godox has gained quite a following. Though the AD600 is an incredible value, it does still have some pitfalls that would cause professional photographers to pass it by – namely inconsistent color performance and a less-than-competitive recycle time at full power, which is rated at 2.5 seconds.

Godox has sought to correct these issues in their Pro line, which was released at the beginning of the year. The AD600Pro was first up, and though priced slightly higher than the original AD600, it offers a color mode for very consistent color results and can recycle faster than a Profoto B1X while providing more power.

For photographers who would rather carry something smaller and lighter and can make do with 200 fewer watt-seconds, there is a new and enticing option. Godox has announced a minuscule 400ws strobe with virtually the same feature set as the AD600Pro, the AD400Pro.

The main differences between the AD600Pro and AD400Pro are size and power.

Key Features

  • TTL compatibility with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, and Micro Four Thirds cameras
  • HSS up to 1/8000

  • Highly consistent “color mode”
  • 2.4Ghz radio trigger
  • 21.6V/2600mAh battery, rated for 390 full-power flashes

    ***Warning*** Godox this Chinese knock off crap, has no warranty at all. Go look at their site no warranty listed.

    I recently purchased a Godox sl 200 continuous light from the Amazon seller Cleari for over 400us dollars. It broke after 2 or 3 times of use and within three months. Their answer was I had to pay to ship it and pay to have it repaired.

    Save up, and buy professional equipment from reputable companies. You just throw your money away with this company.
