Godox Wistro AD600
Godox Wistro AD600
Chinese manufacturer Godox has announced the Wistro AD600
This new flash is a 600 Ws lithium-ion powered TTL and HSS monobloc that can be triggered by the Godox X1 TTL remotes.
The Godox Wistro AD600 is a self-contained unit, meaning that the battery is attached to the body of the strobe, instead of having a separate battery pack.
The new Godox Wistro AD600 will have twice the power of the Witstro AD360-II and similar features, meaning that is able to do TTL, high-speed sync and remote manual power control via the Godox X1 radios.
These triggers are available for Nikon and Canon, but it is rumoured that a Sony version will be announced soon.
All this additional power means that the AD600 is significantly heavier than the AD360; the AD600 weighs 2.9 kg.
New with the Witstro AD600 is a 10-watt modeling light, a feature that is sought after by many Witstro bare-bulb flash users.
The AD600 will be released in two different versions: one with a Godox accessory mount and another with a Bowens S-fit mount (AD600B).
Both of them will have a lithium-ion battery pack enabling the strobe to fire up to 500 full power flashes. Godox is also planning to release a remote head which allows users to separate the head from the ballast, like a pack-and-head system. This remote head for either the Godox and Bowens version will be available as an accessory.

What is very notable is that with the release of the Wistro AD600 is that Godox is starting to develop a very strong lighting system. There are studio heads, speedlites and ringflashes, that Godox is able to offer and once the new 2.4 GHz FT-16 receiver is released they will all be able to be triggered with the use of the X1 triggers. Personally I think Godox is developing a very good system.
