p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Godox AD200 switching flash heads


Just bought AD200 and I really like it. Here is my question.
Does anyone know if one needs to turn off the flash when switching flash heads? I know it shouldn't be a big deal, but sometimes I forget to turn it on after the switch and I feel like it keeps slowing me down.
If it is safe to switch the heads without turning it off, it would be great. I couldn't find the answer in the manual or elsewhere, but someone might know.

The contacts for the flash head should only energized when the flash is fired. With that in mind, it shouldn't (technically) make any difference whether or not the flash is powered off. Even if all that is true, why take the chance?
