Godox, the Chinese lighting manufacturer, is working on a “Pro” version of its Witstro AD600 monolight, according to a reliable industry source.
There are four different variants of the Godox Witstro AD600, including the AD600, AD600M, AD600B and AD600BM. The “B” suffix indicates a Bowens S-mount (as opposed to Godox’s own, non-standard mount) and the “M” denotes a manual-only version. All are 600Ws self-contained studio flashes with removable lithium-ion batteries and integrated 2.4 GHz radio receivers. Probably the most popular option is the Witstro AD600B, which offers TTL, manual control and high-speed sync.
An AC adapter, the Godox AD-AC, can turn the battery light into a mains-powered one. The AD-H600B extends the flash into a pack-and-head system, and the AD-H1200B even lets you join two AD600 packs together to make a 1200Ws lamp.
So far there are no details on exactly what new features will be added to the Godox Wistro AD600 Pro (or Pro-AD600). We understand that this new device is under development, set for release some time next year. The existing version retails for around $500–600.
