Godox V1 Overview

Offering a powerful 76Ws output along with a distinct design, the Godox V1 Flash is an advanced light source with features that clearly reflect the current state of the industry. Compatible with Sony ADI / P-TTL, this flexible on-camera light is distinguished by its round head, which provides soft, smooth light with gradual fall off that augments the flattering output. The head rotates 330 degrees, tilts -7 to 120°, and has a magnetic surface for lightning-fast attachment of Godox's accessory light modifiers.

The V1 is powered by a removable 2600mAh lithium-ion battery that will give you up to 480 full-power flashes on a charge, so you don't miss any of the action. Speaking of speed, the V1 recycles to full power in just 1.5 seconds, fast enough to keep up with your subject. It also supports High Speed Sync up to 1/8000 sec, for managing bright backgrounds and shooting with wide apertures, and the V1 supports front and rear-curtain sync.

The V1 has an optical slave but it's also got a built-in 2.4 GHz receiver, which accepts wireless signals from Godox X System transmitters. In fact, you can control up to four wireless groups in a master/slave configuration whereby settings made on the V1 are duplicated on the slave flashes. Other convenience features include an AF assist lamp, a 3200K LED modeling lamp, and a 2.5mm port for cabled triggering.

Godox V1 Reviews

Better than the V860III

By Greg
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-26

I initially purchased the Godox V860III because it was a little cheaper and I was not crazy about the round head as I thought it would be too big. I also wanted to be able to trigger my AD200 with the flash on the hot shoe. The V860III that I received was defective; I returned it for an exchange however, they were out of stock. B&H gave me a good discount on the V1 so I went with it for a replacement. After using it, I really like the V1. It is not that much bigger than a standard speedlight. With the exception of the wheel on the back, the build quality is very good, much better than I expected. My only (minor) complaint would be that the wheel on the back feels a little on the cheap side. It works fine but just does not have that quality feel to it like the rest of the flash. I wish they had made it a little more substantial. Overall it is very good shoe mount camera flash that I can also triggering my AD200 with. It also triggers my other speedlights with the Godox X1R-C triggers. I purchased the magnetized accessory kit, which simply pop onto the flash, a nice feature. Overall, I am satisfied with the V1 and am glad I ended up with it instead of the V860II.

I had been looking for a new flash for my Nikon D500, and was recommended the Godox brand by photographer friends. I couldn't be happier. From the initial moment using it, it's been perfect for my portraiture and event needs.

I own two ad200 and two v860ii. I just needed something more versatile and went for this one! I wasn't expecting much, but caught me by surprise when I had forgotten my ad200 at home and luckily I had this one on my camera bag! I also have the accessories that you can buy as a bundle or separately(which I recommend you getting). I set this bad boy up on my tripod onto my subject and I was impressed! If you want something slightly better than the v860ii, this will do the job!

I was able to use this camera with my Nikon z9 and d850 for 2 weddings. This flash did not disappoint. Easy to use and shot close to 1600 shots and did not have to replace the battery.

Unbelievable Flash

This flash is a perfect substitute for a manufacturer's flash. The controls are extremely similar. Also, having a modeling light is spectacular in a hot shoe flash. The modifiers and their magnetic attachment make this a very cool flash to use.

Great Light

I like this light a lot. It's a workhorse. I can shoot anywhere, with a modifier and love it!

Well built and great features

I wanted to start building a wireless flash system, but only had Canon EX flash. Made sense to go with the Godox system after numerous glowing reviews and YouTube videos. So far, I have been very happy with the ease of use, compatibility and large feature set. I have always been an OEM guy, but for flashes, I think Godox is the one to beat. The lower price is icing on the cake.
