Godox V1 Flash for Nikon
Offering a powerful 76Ws output along with a distinct design, the Godox V1 Flash is an advanced light source with features that clearly reflect the current state of the industry. Compatible with Nikon i-TTL, this flexible on-camera light is distinguished by its round head, which provides soft, smooth light with gradual fall off that augments the flattering output. The head rotates 330 degrees, tilts -7 to 120°, and has a magnetic surface for lightning-fast attachment of Godox’s accessory light modifiers.
The V1 is powered by a removable 2600mAh lithium-ion battery that will give you up to 480 full-power flashes on a charge, so you don’t miss any of the action. Speaking of speed, the V1 recycles to full power in just 1.5 seconds, fast enough to keep up with your subject. It also supports High Speed Sync up to 1/8000 sec, for managing bright backgrounds and shooting with wide apertures, and the V1 supports front and rear-curtain sync.
The V1 has an optical slave but it’s also got a built-in 2.4 GHz receiver, which accepts wireless signals from Godox X System transmitters. In fact, you can control up to four wireless groups in a master/slave configuration whereby settings made on the V1 are duplicated on the slave flashes. Other convenience features include an AF assist lamp, a 3200K LED modeling lamp, and a 2.5mm port for cabled triggering.

Godox Introduces Round-Head V1 On-Camera Flash
Studio-quality flash in the palm of your hand, or more appropriately, on top of your camera. That’s the promise of Godox’s latest release: the V1 TTL Flash. Immediately, you can see the round head separates it from the rest of the speedlight/on-camera flash pack. This matches what you’ll find on classic monolights and studio strobes, except now the shoe-mounted flash delivers that quality in a much more portable form factor. Also, the light has TTL support, meaning you can find versions that will work with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm, Olympus and Panasonic, and Pentax cameras and their automatic metering systems, including high-speed sync, making the V1 a very capable unit.
Plenty of power can be had with the V1, boasting a 76Ws power rating and a zoom range of 28-105mm. Users can bounce the light as they need with -7 to 120° of vertical tilt and 0 to 330° of horizontal movement. It runs on a rechargeable Li-ion battery pack, delivering 480 full-power flashes and recycle times of up to just 1.5 seconds for fast operation. Additionally, a built-in LED modeling lamp is available that has 10 steps of adjustable power.
Built directly into the V1 is the Godox 2.4GHz X Wireless System. This allows it to work brilliantly with plenty of the existing Godox lights as a single system, as well as enabling wireless triggering and control from the company’s many X Series transmitters—if you decide you would like to use the V1 off camera. The flash head also has a magnetic accessory mount, making it incredibly easy and simple to attach and remove whatever accessories you want for a specific shot.
The V1 could be your next on-camera flash, and with its feature set and relative affordability it is well worth the consideration.
