p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Godox TT350S Mini Thinklite & a7rIII


I am looking for the smallest bounce radio-TTL flash that I can start with and grow it. I have read threads and it seems this may be be best for my needs. I may purchase two to begin so I can use one for fill flash. These seem almost too good to be true (price, value, function).

I am ready to order one or two and wanted to check with people way more experience than I.

Does anyone have any feedback on the Godox Flashes and specifically the TT350S Mini Thinklite? Any issues? Any alternatives?

p.s. I am switching from Nikon and know nothing about the Sony system (2 weeks of reading and looking at all the outstanding photos).

Thank you.

They work well, of course, limited power, but good recycle and great control features...I use one as on camera fill (bounced) and to control my off camera larger godox's like the ad200 and ad360...so I am getting lots of power off camera. Would not work in a large venue without off camera options.

I suggest a TT350S on camera and at least a TT865S or XIR-N (receiver to trigger Nikon) so you have 4 AA batteries off camera, rather than 2.

No reason not going for better flashes as echelonphoto suggested.

I find I usually get by by upping the ISO and IBIS. But use flash indoors.

Do you know if the TT350S or the TT865 provide a distance display. For example, Manual Mode, 1/1 power, 200 asa, 35mm f11 ---- 13 foot? Changing the power will change the distance display/calculation. I am having trouble finding this in any references.

No distance display. Iíve got a TT350Sand a TT350O that Iíve never actually used on an Olympus but figured why not as theyíre all cross compatible wirelessly. Also have two TT600Sí and have had the V860IIS and AD200 previously. None had distance measures.

After years of shooting with flashes and film cameras and using flash meters diligently, I find digital use amazingly simple. Occasionally automatic can work, but usually I take a couple of test shots on manual and adjust from there. It doesn't take much practice to get the hang of it and it can be pretty quick, and overall it's generally more reliable than automatic.

That is what I was thinking, a couple test shots in manual to zero in. I have always done TTL and adjusted but want to give manual a try. And I decided the distance calculation was not a show stopper and ordered a couple TT350Ss. I know long term I will need something stronger but these will get me started.

Thanks for posting as it helps.

If you're okay with AA batteries, look at the TT600's next. Their cheaper than the TT350's and integrate great. If you get into a lot of shooting, get the Li-On versions though. The batteries & recharge times are sweet.

Man, I was going for the TT685s or as you said the V860IIS. I actually prefer the AA's as I have rechargeable envelop pro which have been great as I do not need the extra short recharge time.

Why are the TT600's so low? vs. TT685s which are not really bad. I assume just older model. I can compare the specs when I am ready. I would have missed this so I really appreciate it. I want light, light, so I would have still gone for a couple TT350's.

B&H is so good, I received them today... menu is easy... I do not have a camera yet but everything worked... except, Question >>>> when I tested the Master and turned off its flash, it still flashed. The slave flashed as desired but the Master did flash also. I assume it was just because I was using the test button vs. on camera.

Honestly not really sure about 600 vs 685. Just that the 600ís have worked for me. Might be about TTL? I use manual almost exclusively anyway.

Probably a settings issue. You have to hit the Group button to cycle through the remote groups. I think it shouldnít flash but Iíll have to test and my flashes are currently on loan. When one is in master mode you hit Group to cycle through groups A, B, C and M(aster). Try cycling to Master, change Mode to off, the cycle to whatever group and try the power?
