Godox AD200

Godox AD200 XPro-F UC-29

If I could choose a single product that has changed the images I can make over the last 5 years, it would be the Godox AD200 flash. This much power in a tiny package means I can take less gear and achieve more on location quickly and easily.

When I first started my Tattoos of Asia project (my first book, Hmäe Sün Näe Ti Cengkhü Nu), I was working with Nikon SB-800 speedlights. I needed two of these at full power inside a single softbox just to scrape by for the style I was working in. If one of those flashes had failed in the field, things would have turned out very differently.

When the AD200 was released, I jumped on it immediately – the power of 3 speedlights in a package that was almost the same size as one and high-speed sync support? It was like my prayers had been answered. Now, a single unit was enough to get the results I was after and a second one could be carried for backup. This, coupled with the easy-to-use XPro-F trigger makes this the perfect location light for me.

Not only that, but the batteries allow for 500 full-power pops and can be charged off a solar panel using the Godox USB-C charger. This makes them the perfect solution for trips into the mountains for Tattoos of Asia.
