Godox is quickly making a name for itself as a go-to lighting brand for photographers looking to save a buck without sacrificing quality or functionality. But the new AD200 is less about saving money than saving space: it’s a “pocket flash” with two different heads that is literally the size of a decent candy bar.
The so-called Witstro Pocket Flash AD200 is a lithium battery-powered … minilight? It’s not a speedlight and we probably couldn’t call it a monolight either. The pocket flash fits into its very own category. It comes with 2 different heads—one behind a fresnel lens, like a speedlight, and a bare bulb—built-in Godox 2.4GHz wireless X system, full support of TTL and HSS (assuming you’re using a Godox trigger, of course), and the capability to put out an impressive 200Ws of flash power.
You can get 500 full-power flashes out of the AD200 out of a full charge, and a full range of Godox modifiers will work with this pint-sized monolight:
Given its diminutive size in comparison to its impressive power output, we could see this little flash making its way into many a photographer’s travel bag.
