How I Built a DIY Gel Holder for the Godox AD300 Pro Flash

I purchased some of the new compact and foldable Godox softboxes (e.g. AD-S60S, AD-S65W, AD-S85S, etc) for my Godox AD300 Pros. They work just fine but I wanted to use the magnetic color gels from my AK-R1 kit with them, so I decided to design my own gel holder compatible with the AD300 Pro.

LA wedding photographer and educator Michael Anthony has released a detailed side-by-side comparison of the recently announced Godox AD300 Pro (Flashpoint XPLOR 300 Pro) and the much more expensive Profoto B10. The two lights share similar power output and a similar footprint, but vastly different price points. Is the Profoto simply overpriced, or does the Godox fall short?

My Broken Godox Flash: A Tale of Bad Customer Service

Back in July, my Godox TT350O flash went wrong. I simply got an E9 message on the LCD and it wouldn’t work at all. It was annoying as I had enjoyed using Godox flashes and wireless transmitter up until then and had even recommended them to others.
