Godox AD1200 Pro Overview

Featuring wireless control via the 2.4 GHz wireless X system with a range of up to 328' and 1200Ws of power, the AD1200Pro Battery Powered Flash Kit from Godox is an impressive lighting tool compatible with several TTL systems including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm, Olympus, and Panasonic. It offers up to nine steps of output power in Manual flash mode, ranging from 1/1 to 1/256 of a second.

The AD1200Pro recycles to full power in just two seconds and features a high-speed sync mode that works with shutter speeds up to 1/8000 second with action-stopping flash durations from 1/220 to 1/10,860 seconds. Another unique setting is its Stable Color Temperature mode, which tightly controls color to keep temperature changes within ±75K across the entire power range. Besides these impressive specs, in Stroboscopic Mode it's capable of 100 continuous pops at 1/16 power output. Finally, a 40W LED modeling lamp with three selectable modes draws negligible power and helps previsualize your captured image.

    it's not all Profoto, speedotron or Dynalite anymore

    I have beat up old studio Speedotrons, Dynalite and other brands and while they served well for over 20 years the Dynamites finally came to death too many times to keep running and sold off the monster Speedotrons. I have been very impressed with Godox strobes and at the price you can have several backups on hand incase of an accident. Flash duration and color consistency have been fantastic.

    500 full power? questionable

    Ok first use today on a fashion shoot, 1/4 power fully charged overnight. 95 shots and battery is at 2/3rds. So 1/3rd power used for 95 say 100 shots should mean about 160 shots at full power to use 1/3rd. I should have been able to shoot about 480 shots at 1/4th power. Anyone getting 500 full power? Are you using the model light or no?

    This is a great piece of equipment.Refined,easy to operate.And powered by a industry respected battery. Nothing worse the going on a shoot and having the electricity cut off in the middle of a shoot.Dependability insures my career.

    My AD1200 went down in a sudden wind gust on location even though it was weighted down. I broke the flash head, the flash tube and the protective glass dome that covers the tube. You can buy the flash tube, but you are out of luck with a broken or defective head and that protective glass dome.....

    Would you happen to know or ask Godox if they can start selling the flash heads separately? It would be ideal if have a head replacement for back up.

    I just got this unit and it does not fire above 250 using the GodOx Sony triggers. The wireless triggers fire with HSS on my AD600 Pro, AD200, and GodOx speed lights. Does anyone else have issues getting the AD1200 pro to fire with HSS on Sony?

    This unit is initially battery powered, but you can purchase the Godox AC Adapter for AD1200Pro Battery Powered Flash System, BH # GOAC1200 to make it an AC powered flash unit. https://bhpho.to/3khVknd

    If i get a X1 R transmitter to trigger the AD1200 ...

    If i get a X1 R transmitter to trigger the AD1200 and mount my Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter on top of the X1 R will it work to trigger my 600 EX-RT’s speedlites?
    Asked by: Arthur
    Yes this will in fact work in the set up you described. With the Godox transmitter, it will also change the mode (TTL or Manual) on the Canon ST-E3-RT as well. So if you have the Godox set to TTL, it will change the Canon to TTL as well, but for it to sync the same setting to the Canon flash as well, you need to first set the Canon transmitter to the desired mode (TTL or Manual) sync it with the Canon transmitter while it is detached from the Godox transmitter, then mount the Canon transmitter back on top of the Godox and then they will sync up settings properly. A very interesting approach but it will work. A better option I would recommend would be to sell the Canon transmitter and Speedlight that you have, purchase the Godox Pro Transmitter and either a Godox V860II or Godox V1, so that then you have all equipment being controlled by one transmitter which is a better functioning one overall.
