Godox, the China based lighting brand is about to launch a one of its kind product for mobile photographers. The soon-to-be-launched Godox A1 would be one of the best mobile photography accessories in the market. It would allow you to use it as an off-camera flash as well as a transmitter.
As seen in the teaser photos, the Godox A1 features three LED lights and a flash unit placed just above it which can be triggered using your smartphone camera. Another feature of this brilliant device is that it can also work as a transmitter to control Godox flash which has 2.4GHz system.
Here are some of the photos shared on Godox Facebook Page which will help us analyse how exactly the Godox A1 can be used. It also looks like that the product will work using a dedicated Godox app only, and might not be compatible with the default camera app.
The shared below shows how the Godox A1 can be used to click photos using a smartphone, especially in low-light conditions.
The A1 in-built LED light can also be used off-camera, placing it as per the requirement.
Using the Godox app, you would be able to trigger the A1 in-built flash as well.
And one of the best features of Godox A1, you can use it to trigger a Godox flash which has 2.4GHz system.
As per the photos, it looks like it would definitely be compatible with iOS smartphones, not sure about the Android compatibility though. But I am sure they will be compatible with both iOS as well as Android phones. We might have to wait till mid-August or August end to know the official price and details related to availability.
