  • 1Description

With full support for Olympus/Panasonic TTL, including high-speed sync, and a built-in 2.4GHz radio system, the Godox TT685O Thinklite TTL Flash will make it easy to create both simple and elaborate lighting setups. When mounted on camera, it is an effective lighting tool with a powerful guide number of 197' at ISO 100 and 200mm, a zoom range of 20-200mm, and the ability to tilt from -7 to 90° and rotate 360°. As a TTL-capable unit, the TT685O can also operate as a full wireless master or slave unit with TTL functionality.

Operation is intuitive with a rear LCD panel that shows settings. Also, the flash is equipped with a Wireless Control Port for attaching an optional remote control set and it has a 3.5mm sync port for basic wired connectivity. It runs on four AA batteries, which help provide a recycle time of 0.1-2.6 seconds.

An integrated 2.4GHz X radio system is incorporated into the TT685O for wireless triggering. Able to be set up as a master or slave, this flash will help you create a versatile lighting setup with a range of 328' and support for 32 channels and three groups. It can also work with an optional X series transmitter for creating more elaborate setups.
Being compatible with Olympus/Panasonic's TTL system, users will enjoy numerous automated flash settings and the ability to use functions such as high-speed sync.
With a guide number of 197' at ISO 100 and 200mm the TT685O will easily illuminate most subjects. It also features a zoom head with a range of 20-200mm and a 14mm wide-angle panel for using a variety of different lenses.
Manual power control from 1/1 to 1/128 in 1/3 EV steps.
The flash head can be tilted from -7 to 90° and rotated a total of 360° for controlling bounce and where the light falls on the scene.
Optical master/slave transmission is available for working with other standard flashes.
Using an optional FT series remote control set, users can connect to the wireless control port to gain wireless control over the flash's power settings.
A 3.5mm sync port is available for setting up a wired connection to a camera or trigger.

    Godox TT685O reviews

    TT685O Thinklite TTL Flash for Olympus/Panasonic Cameras is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reasonable price for full function flash I bought for use with my Lumix DMC FZ300.� It does the job for this non-professional photographer. Build and design is a lot like my Nikon SB900 and SB800 flashes. However, there are a few drawbacks to the unit: 1) The shoe attachment plate is hard to properly position on camera; 2) The locking device for the attachment is a screw down rather than a quick lever as with most other flashes; 3) The function buttons are poorly labeled; and most importantly, 4) The instructions are poorly written, hard to follow, and downright unintelligible. I am not sorry that I bought the flash as it will be used only occasionally. If I were to have it as my primary flash for my Nikons it would have been a bad choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All I wanted and more I am a retired news photographer trying to keep a hand in the profession I still love. I keep things simple when I can. My new GODOX TT685 is doing all I ask of it, as a primary camera-mounted flash in TTL mode. I purchased this flash on the basis of price and capability - the unit can be used as a master or remote slave with electronic capabilities far beyond my needs at this stage of my career. The unit is well built and more than fulfills my expectations.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good bargain with you can accept its limitations I bought the Godox TT685o for use with my Olympus E-M1 Mark II camera.� I had tried using several models of Olympus optically triggered remote flashes with sporadic success.� Too often the remote flash would not see the light from the triggering flash and would not fire.� So I decided to try the Godox radio triggered flash instead. ���� I have now used the Godox flash for several months in a variety of situations and can now comment on what I think are its strengths and weaknesses.� First, the strengths.� The Godox unit appears to be of sufficiently rugged construction for normal use.� It recycles reasonably quickly and gets a good number of flashes per charge.� The LCD panel is easy to read and the buttons and dial easy to use.� The flash head tilts and swivels to various positions without the need to press a release button but takes considerable effort to do so yet it always stays in place.� The flash's radio trigger works well with the the Godox X1To transmitter mounted to the camera (with one exception which will be noted) and was able to receive a signal at a distance of about 80 yards.� ��� Now to the weaknesses.� My main objection to the Godox TT685o is that it does not cover the field of view and rather severely vignettes the corners of the photo, especially for wide angle shots.� I did tests with the flash on the camera hot shoe and photographed a blank white wall at various lens focal lengths with the flash on auto zoom.� With the lens at a particular focal length I would note the flash zoom setting on the flash LCD.� Here are� samplings of various lens focal lengths and the accompanying flash zoom settings: lens @ 12mm, flash reading 14mm; lens @ 14mm, flash reading 17mm; lens @18mm, flash reading 25mm; lens @25mm, flash reading 35mm; lens @ 35mm, flash reading 42mm.� One will note that in every case the flash head is zoomed to longer focal lengths than the actual lens focal length which would explain the vignetting effect.� The Godox manual states that the flash auto zoom covers focal lengths from 10mm to 100mm.� I have attached two photos, one at 12mm and the other at 100mm of focal length.� As one can see the 12m shot shows severe vignetting and the 100mm shot very little.� My intermediate shots show the vignetting effect to be acceptable to me at about 35mm. ���� I wrote an email to Godox to ask about the vignetting issue and never received a reply.� I decided I might have have a uniquely flawed unit and returned it to B&H and ordered a replacement.� The replacement unit had the identical problem.� So I think either Godox has a design flaw or a manufacturing calibration flaw with this model.� Incidentally, I also have a Godox TT350o flash and it does not have a vignetting problem nor do my Olympus flashes. ���� So what can you do to work around the vignetting problem?� You can use the manual zoom feature with the flash instead of the auto zoom.� This option may work if you don't need to work quickly.� Secondly, you can use the flash with a softbox or reflective umbrella to spread your light.� Or, thirdly, you may bounce the light off of a low white ceiling to spread the light for wide angle shots. ���� My other complaints about the Godox TT685o are relatively minor.� The instruction manual is only fair and if you are not already familiar with setting off-camera remote flashes it may prove difficult to understand.� The flash case could use a belt loop to make it easier to carry with you.� If the flash refuses to fire, check the batteries which may be low.� The manual says the battery icon will blink when the power is low but I never saw it blinking when the flash refused to fire and I finally changed the batteries.� Lastly, the Godox TT685o will not fire if it is too close to the Godox X1To transmitter.� The flash seem to need to be at least 6 to 8 inches away from the trigger to operate.� Strange but true.� This was only a problem when I wanted to take macro photos and hold the flash right next to the camera lens to illuminate the subject.� In this case one can use a cord between the camera hot shoe and flash and dispense with the radio triggering. ���� I have down graded the Godox flash one star rating for the vignetting issue and another star for the Godox company's lack of response to my inquiry. ��� So there you have my review.� The Godox TT685o is certainly a bargain price compared to other radio triggered flashes.� If you decide to get a unit, check it out and decide if you can live with the vignetting issue.� If you can't,� B&H will gladly issue a refund.� Who knows, maybe by now Godox has fixed the vignetting issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works. This was "a pig in a poke" since the only flashes I've ever used were Canon.� I wanted one for my E-M1 Mk II, but didn't feel like paying the price for an Olympus one.� I've only tested with it so far, but it seems to be doing the job nicely.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent Unit But With Caveats Pros: Well made. Cons: No external (Panasonic) connection without X1 trigger. No firmware support for Mac users. Instruction manual is sketchy. No US support (phone, email, chat). Email for Chinese tech support bounces back.
    Date published: 2018-03-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought three Works good with my Panasonic cameras. I like the fact that you can use them as master or slave with the wireless radio transmitters. But I went ahead and bought the Godox X-Pro flash trigger to control the power settings on all of my Godox flashes. No complaints. TTL works.
