From the thread in the Wedding forum.

http://flashhavoc.com/godox-ad200-witstro-cordless-strobe-coming/

"Godox have started releasing images of the soon to be announced Godox AD200 Witstro cordless strobe.

The AD200 are a 200Ws cordless Lithium-ion powered TTL and HSS enabled strobe with Godox 2.4GHz X-system radio receiver built inside (currently for Canon, Nikon, and Sony).

Being dedicated off camera flashes (they have no hotshoe) the AD200 provide similar compact size of a speedlite though with some added power.

While also featuring an interchangeable flash head which provides the option of either bare bulb or traditional speedlite fresnel head."

One feature that Elv confirmed is MASK function. That capability creates some interesting creative options with this light. It also means that these lights will be ideal in size and power output for small product photography. Especially when wanting to cut the subject out of the background. That's where the MASK function comes into play.

The Flashpoint version is up and ready for pre-order. Price was higher, but after a few days it came down to $329.00

Wow, definitely have my eyes on these. The size and power output fit right in line with what I am looking for...

Despite Godox smearing its copy book by blatantly copying other products and uncle Sam turning a blind eye wtf, this looks like a useful product which could find a place or be made useful as replacement unit for other flash+cable+battery products, although the 200 - like 180 - really being 150ws is another failed marketing fau-pas smothered in BS - which shouldn't be forgiven.. it probably will and it will find a useful place in many lighting bags.

360/400 WS is what I'm waiting for.

i've found the 360's power rating to be way overstated. Close to 180-200 IMO...So if the 200 is the same, wouldn't be very effective with a modifier.

What would be the advantage of this over Canon's 600EX-RT?

Apart from saving $170 per head, doubling the power, much faster recycle times, more full power pops using li-ion, not much

OTOH sticking a Canon speedlight into a Canon ecosystem will probably be better for events where you lean heavily on TTL and having lights talk to each other. I'm just guessing. I never work this way but from what I hear from others the Godox TTL system isn't everything, say, Nikon's system is. A speedlight is also going to have shorter flash duration, so if your work lives or dies by that, the only approach to offset it with the Godox is to hop into HSS mode.

Someone's been testing these and they're metering above expectations.

Actually jlafferty I have 3 Godox 600X and 1 Godox 360X and 2 smaller units by them and in TTL they are SO much better than CANON flash units as far as proper exposure. I've owned CANON units for over 15 years and not even the 600EX was accurate, always underexposed by 2/3 of a stop. Plus they are way overpriced.

In TTL or manual the Godox system is flawless with full and accurate communications between all the units; smallest units to the big studio units.

Well, Adorama finally has their Flashpoint version back in stock so mine is in route. Look for some of my Nikon speedlights on the B&S board soon.

Seems they have released a third head option for these: https://www.adorama.com/fplfxp0019.html

Makeshift video light?

Funny, I didn't see that announced on any of the usual websites…

That is one powerful little light. I love my FP Evolv 200.

This little light is seeming to become a useful all around light for multiple purposes. Seems to be the perfect light for wedding photographers.

Yup love it! Bought 2 and I haven't use my AD600 as much now. I find it adequate for most of my use and powerful enough even in HSS shooting at 1.4 during the day in the shade. I have the AD200 in my backpack along with my magsphere now because it's so portable.
