I certainly wouldn't say that. I never use TTL in controlled situations. And I don't know of any studio photographer that uses TTL. But that's me.

So why not just buy a lighting system capable of providing both?

Because they rob you on price/value. But there is no doubt that that is my opinion, not a fact.

Either you use TTL or you don't. You obviously do.

The thing with having it is that you can switch TTL off if you want to, making your lights Manual. If you don't have it - you can't switch it off and need another system to plug the gap.

I fail to see how a Godox might be suitable as a studio flash 'for controlled situations' without having a modelling light.

Theres only one sun. Why do I need more than one light to get a natural result?
