Forget Overpowering the Sun, The Flashpoint AD1200 Pro Will Replace it

Godox AD1200 Pro
If you need to illuminate half of your neighborhood, the Godox AD1200 Pro might be the go-anywhere flash you need.

Godox has been making quite a name for themselves over the last few years by releasing strobes and monolights that offer incredible features at prices that are far less than other manufacturers out there. Thanks to a recent listing, it looks Godox/Flashpoint might continue the trend of offering quality gear in the shape of a monster called the Godox/Flashpoint AD1200 Pro. This beastly boasts 1200ws of power, and your current R2 transmitters can trigger it. We have more specs and info after the break.

The news about the Godox AD1200 Pro initially broke on Fomitio’s Facebook page. They shared an image of the towering 13lb light and its massive fan-cooled battery pack, and they quickly stated that the light is still in the testing and development (debugging) phase. There is, however, a listing for the Flashpoint variant of the light listed on Adorama’s website too, and it is from here that we can see the alleged specs of their version, which will be known as the XPLOR Power 1200 Pro.

The Godox AD1200 Pro / Flashpoint XPLOR Power 1200 Pro will feature:

  • Real 1200ws flash head dedicated output
  • Three active Modes: Manual, TTL and Multiflash
  • High Speed Sync and Custom Function for Masking, Delay and Sequence
  • The brilliant COB LED modeling lamp provides a clear preview of the lighting
  • Lightweight pack and head goes anywhere at less than 13 pounds
  • Rechargeable lithium battery pack or AC powered
  • Bowens mount compatibility for hundreds of modifiers
  • Flashpoint R2 wireless control for Canon, Sony, Nikon, Fujifilm, Panasonic. Olympus. And Pentax TTL camera systems
  • Fan cooled head and pack keeps it going under the gun
  • Custom functions only a photographer would appreciate

The “go anywhere’ light also features a 12-foot cable, which means you can place the light source in an optimal position. This feature would make it an excellent light for photographers who need to light large venues. The battery pack should provide enough power for 480 full-power flashes, but if you need to, you can connect the light to an AC outlet for continuous power. There’s no information about pricing or potential release dates yet, but we will let you know when we hear something.
