As far as I know it's also got optical slave that might not recognise the TTL pre flash. That will give you inconsistent results. Mount flash on foot and select wireless flash from camera menu. Dismount, raise camera flash and it should work.
It will work with other cameras as long as you have the foot adapter. Tried with my A580 and works perfect.
I have the v860 but should be the same.
Godox only certified those cameras because they have the new multi interface flash shoe.
Hope it helps.

I do have a question about the TT350S.

I just bought one - for 80€ - and it works perfect on the a77II, A7II, a6000 - but fires on the Minolta 5D (with the ADP-AMA) but the flash doesn't work well.

Sometimes it goes off - but only at minimal power (1/128 of power - though it's in TTL at 1/60"). That's not that bad (i still have 3 HS(D)5600's + 1 HS(D)3600 (minolta) flashes...

So the question is - will it function on other older Sony Minolta iISO flash-mount-camera (a55, a33, a900...)? Has anyone tried it out already?

I'm only trying to find out on what kind of Sony/Minolta camera's this flash can still be used. Godox only tested/certifies the flash on A6000/A77II/A99/A99II,A7/A58/RX10... (i'm running flash version 1.8 - the latest version).

Just to update that the flashguns are amazing.
Recycling time is blazing fast and build quality seems way better than low end Sony's but not to the level of my old Metz.
You can use one flash as a controller to the rest of them.
Can't wait for the Xpro controller to arrive next week to get a real feel of the system.
For the price the Neewer version is a steal, half price of the Godox. It's a shame they haven't rebranded the Xpro yet.

Godox/Neewer/Flashpoint are one and the same. Yes, it will work with that flash and all other Godox's that support their R2 2.4GHz protocol. They just now released the X-ProS today and mine is on it's way.

Unfortunately the didn't do the same with the AD200, but still cheaper than the original.


Does the Godox Trigger work with this, or do you have to get a Neewer one? (I note that 'Amazon customers' assert that it is compatible ... it would be great if someone here has personal experience.)

I don't think so.Only non ttl optical slave. They have radio control. You can fire other godox/neewer flashguns with the flash or the optional transmitter. If you do studio work it's amazing as you can change every parameter on the flashguns, group them and link any changes.
Have a look on Godox Xpro transmitter to see what this system is capable of.

Yes. I find small differences in size aren't of importance. They're either small enough to fit in a small pcoket in the gadget bag, like the Meike 320 or HVL-F20, or they need a full lens-size pocket inside.

I would get the bigger flash, faster cycle times and holds more battery's, if you ever decide to use off camera flash you would better off with the bigger flash.

I find the HVL-36 & 42 to have plenty of clout for bounce-flash at large parties in a big room with a high light-coloured ceiling, at f4 and a reasonable ISO like 640. If the ceiling is black and obstructed like some wedding reception venues, bounce may not to work at all and you're looking at reflectors/etc which is a different kettle of fish.

FWIW I've taken some quite effective pictures of dancers, out of doors, at night, using the pop-up flash on the A58, so huge flash power isn't that critical.   What it does effect is the ISO and the noise/detail tradeoff. You'll need to play around with that to see what you personally find acceptable in the likely situation.

You might want to check the specs carefully and do some calculations. The guide number of the 685 is rated at 200mm focal length, and may/will be less than that if you use the 100mm FL the 350 is rated at. Same with the Nissin i40/i60.
The 685 *may* be more powerful than the 350, but probably not as much more as you'd think from the GN.
It's an old game of specmanship to give a bit more FL zoom and claim a higher GN ...
