A7RIII; Nissin i60A vs Godox Ving V860II
« on: December 19, 2017, 10:38:24 PM »

Narowed down my on-camera flash for the A7RII to either the Nissin i60A or Godox Ving V860II.  Nissin is extremely easy to use, but the Godox has super fast .7(?) sec recycle to full power due to itís Li-Ion battery, vs 4, AAís for the Nissin. Would need the Nissin external pack to reduce recycle time, negating the smaller footprint of the Nissin.  Both have similar GNís. Donít have an information on the build quality of either.  Any opinions would be beneficial.

Godox system also includes bigger studio-grade strobes - that share remote protocol with their modern on camera speedlites... just in case if one might consider using bigger guns for whatever reason in future that person might go with Godox = http://flashhavoc.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/GODOX_SYSTEM_1e1400.jpg

Hello:  Just an update.  Took delivery of 2, Flashpoint (rebranded Godox) Zoom Li-on R2 TTL On-Camera Flash Speedlights for my Sony bodies. Also have on backorder the Flashpoint R2 Pro 2.4GHz Transmitter for Sony (XPro-S). At some point in the future I'll be interested in their 600ws mono-light.  Getting up to speed on everything but it looks like a great system to get into at a very reasonable investment! Can't wait for that Transmitter, allowing full control of all flash units from the camera hot shoe. 

Thanks for your reply to my initial posting!
