Has any one used the Godox TT685S or the AD200 with a 99ii? The AD200 looks interesting, but?. Will order couple of the 685S and transmitter and one AD200 to try and see.


Going this way because of price, godex is almost 1/2 of phottix.

All the stuff that i have used from Phottix as worked very well, and I haven't used anything from godex before.

I have a Sony F60 flash to use on camera, just need to get stuff that works good off camera for the a99ii.

If any one has a better idea for portable off camera flash that's ttl compatible please speak up.

I have the V860IIs (the Lithium flashes) and tried them on my new a99ii and they seem to work OK. I've only extensively used them with the original a99 and they seem to work just as well as Sony flashes in terms of exposure. I have them as the Adorama Flashpoint branded flashes. Adorama provides support/warranty in the US so if you're interested in Godox flashes it's probably best to get them via Adorama.

One drawback is that the wireless receiver adapters for Sony flashes (the X1R-S) never seem to come out, they're on perpetual preorder, so adapting any existing Sony flashes to the radio wireless is not possible. However, the Godox flashes do Sony optical TTL just fine.

Switched to Godox, both the Tt685S and the Tt350S as well as a controller. They work. Simple as that. Very very happy. Will probably pick up an AD200 at some point. For remote use, these are so much better and easier to use than Nissin Air.

Only issue is, as has been mentioned above, the X1R-s is not out yet. Supposedly this summer. Will probably get a couple when they do come out, for my old flashes.
