Godox has released the Ving V860n, a Li-ion hotshoe flash with Nikon i-TTL, master/slave support and optional radio control.
The lithium-powered Nikon flash, or “Li-TTL Speedlight” (you’re welcome), is Godox’s third light in the Ving series, following the manual-only Ving V850 and the Canon E-TTL Ving V860c. Unlike regular AA-powered flashguns, the Vings run on removable proprietary Li-ion battery packs, which are so quick-recycling and long-lasting that there is no need for an external high-voltage power source.
With the possible exception of the Quantum Qflash, the Ving is the first-ever lithium-powered flash with Nikon TTL support.
As well as featuring full Nikon i-TTL, manual power control, Auto-FP Sync, master and slave modes, the V860n has a port for an optional Godox FT-16S wireless receiver, allowing radio power control from the camera position with the FT-16 433MHz system (compatible with the AD180, AD360 and other Vings).
