About the Godox V1

The Godox V1 TTL Li-ion flash boasts a circular head that delivers soft and uniform illumination akin to that of a studio unit.

In addition to providing even light from center to edge, the V1's round flash head produces a gentle and uniform light effect. The flash is also equipped with an LED modeling lamp that can be adjusted from 01 to 10 steps, making it easier to visualize the effects.

The V1 is powered by a detachable 2600mAh lithium-ion battery that provides up to 480 full-power flashes per charge, ensuring you never miss a moment. With a recharge time of just 1.5 seconds, the V1 is quick enough to keep pace with your subject.

The flash features a built-in Godox 2.4G wireless X system that offers all-in-one functionality and is highly compatible with other devices that operate within the same system, such as lamps and transmitters. The V1 can control up to four wireless groups in a master/slave configuration, allowing you to duplicate the settings on the slave lamps.

The V1 is designed for ease of use, with a magnetic accessory port that makes it simple to attach various accessories, including the AK-R1 accessory kit. Additionally, the flash features a quick lock hot-shoe that is both fast and reliable.

With a wide angle adjustment range of 0° to 330° horizontally and -7° to 120° vertically, the V1 enhances shooting efficiency in bounce flash scenarios. The flash can also be updated via USB.

The Godox V1 is packed with advanced features, including full TTL automation, manual mode, HSS and FEC mode, and second curtain synchronization, among others.
