It has not really been a secret that ever since the introduction of the Witstro AD360 that Godox was working on a TTL version of their popular barebulb flash. But exactly when they would introduce them was still a big mystery. Rumours about a TTL Witstro have been around for more than a year, but Godox has now finally announced the release of the Witstro AD360II-C.
Initially Godox will release the Canon version, which is called the AD360II-C. This flash features an integrated 2.4 GHz transceiver that can work with the recently released Godox X1-C TTL triggers. When compared to the older manual version we see that besides the addition of the TTL mode, the rear LCD screen has been replaced with dot-matrix one that can contain more information. Otherwise no significant changes can be found. Everything that photographers love about the AD360 have remained the same: power, recycle times and appearance are identical.
What is interesting about the AD360II-C is that though it is ostensibly a Canon version with an E-TTL hotshoe foot, it can still work with Nikon cameras. It can act as a radio TTL slave to the X1-N triggers for Nikon (which haven’t been released yet, but are planned). It is also possible to revert back to the older FT-16 receiver, which connects via a USB port.
The Godox Witstro AD360II-C should be available soon. Early listings have already appeared on eBay, starting at $500 for the Witstro and battery pack, or around $780 for a bundle including X1-C TTL triggers.
