The combo with the accessories kit makes this an amazing deal. Using disposable batteries with powerful flashes gets expensive and I hate proprietary battery packs.

At first glance, it appears to be of decent quality. To be absolutely honest it was only used once for testing, when I went to use it again for a project the switch went out and would not power on. The batteries were replaced thinking that was the problem and still nothing. The warranty period had recently passed a few months ago so looks like money wasn't very well spent. Not very reliable and would not recommend for purchase.

Full-featured flash, great value for money

The TT685 is a full-sized flash with all the features you'd expect of a premium camera-brand speed-light, including full TTL and manual modes, high-speed sync, tilting/rotating head, slide-out catchlight and diffuser... and a whole lot more. It can communicate remotely via 2.4 GHz radio for when I decide to get the X1T device. It looks and feels solid and comes in a neat pouch with a small stand for attaching to light stands. The size and weight balance are good on my Olympus EM1ii - I was concerned it would be too big and heavy. It's quite a handful on my EM5 and if that's your main body, you might also consider the TT350 if you don't need as much power. This model runs on 4xAA batteries and it's a good idea to get rechargeables rather than use alkalines but I like the idea of being able to use alkalines as backup. I got rechargeables separately with a recharger that plugs into power outlets in my country, but B&H sell good-value packages if you're in North America. Speaking of power, the alternative to consider is the Godox V860ii, virtually same size and spec as the TT685 but with a lithium ion battery, is slightly heavier, and about 50% more expensive, and I'm sure it's really great as well. For my money, the TT685 at US$119 is perfect for my occasional flash use and is fantastic value for money. Olympus EM1ii users (and possibly some other Oly models) might wonder why your white balance doesn't change, with this flash, irrespective of what you set it to in the camera. Go to Menu F, last setting is Flash+WB, and if it's set to WB(flash symbol), set it to OFF, and you'll have control again.

So far, mostly good

Hi - I like the flash fine - for all its flashy reasons - although I had to exchange it after yanking the little white bounce card out of it. Don't yank too hard.

Used once and it never worked again

There is a huge issue with the battery connectors not working and overheating. I used the flash once to test it, took the batteries out of it, didn't use it for a few months, tried to use it with fresh batteries and it didn't charge, didn't turn on and it got super hot.

Solid powerful flash but...

By Bill

Flash is solidly built, powerful, and has fairly intuitive menus. My only complaint is the TTL Auto zoom setting doesn't match my lens zoom (for example a 35mm is set for my 25mm lens). This causes some flash vignetting. Can be correcting by setting the zoom to the correct setting in Manual zoom. This takes care of the vignetting issue. Annoying, hence the 4 stars.

Works well and great price.

What external battery pack will work with this flash? The manual and specs don't give the answer.
Asked by: Stephen
The Godox TT685O Thinklite TTL Flash for Olympus/Panasonic Cameras uses a Canon EX-style external high voltage terminal on the front of the TT685O flash for external battery usage. As such, you may use either the Bolt P12 Compact Battery Pack for Canon Flashes, B&H # BOCBP12C, with 12 AA batteries to power your flash, or for a rechargeable battery option with higher output, you may use both the Godox PROPAC PB960 Lithium-Ion Flash Power Pack, B&H # GOPB960, and the Bolt CZ2 HV Locking Flash Power Cable for Select Canon Flash Units, B&H # BOCZ2, for your usage needs.

Is there a guide number chart? If not, what is the guide number at 100 mm?
Asked by: Alan
There is no chart made. And one manufacture to the other can be different on how they test. Standard is 100 ISO at f/5.6 but some do set the f/stop in the test wider and some set the iso higher as well. So this flash has been tested and rated a guide number of 197 feet. So that is at 197 feet, ISO 100 with a 200mm focal length. And as for stop most do not list that information.

The holy grail for a 3rd party flash is that it can work in TTL mode with your camera. This one does so all important functions do work.
