Godox announces AD400Pro strobe, due out in August
Godox Photo Equipment has announced a new addition to its growing lineup of wireless strobes, the Godox AD400Pro.
As its name suggests, the AD400Pro is a 400WS wireless strobe with a maximum high speed sync speed of 1/8000th of a second. It uses Godox's 2.4GHz Wireless X System that's compatible with Canon E-TTL II, Nikon i-TTL autoflash, Sony, Fujifilm, Olympus, and Panasonic TTL systems.
AD400 strobes fill the gap between the current AD200 and AD600Pro strobes, in terms of both size and power. A single AD400Pro weighs just 2.1kg/4.63lbs and measures in at 220x102x128mm/8.66x4.02x5.04in. It can be powered by an AC power source or an included 21.6 volt, 2600mAh battery capable of firing off 390 full-power flashes before needing a charge.
The AD400Pro comes with the new Godox adapter ring for mounting its lineup of accessories, as well as a Bowens adapter to install Bowens lighting accessories. Godox says other, third-party adapters will let you mount accessories from companies such as Broncolor, Prophoto, Elinchrom and others.
The AD400Pro can be updated with new firmware via the onboard USB Type-C port. It also features an onboard 3.5mm sync port for alternative triggering methods.
Included in the box will be one flash, one flash tube, a lithium battery back, a battery charger, a power cord, a reflector, a Bowens-mount adapter, a wrench, and an instruction manual.
