Godox has released a new ring flash head for its AD200 flash system. A ring flash is a popular light source for producing shadowless illumination ideal for flattering portraiture, or macro/close-up shots free from the harsh directional shadows typically produced by a regular speedlight-style flash.

The Godox R200 Ring Flash Head is unlike most ring flashes, in that it must be used in conjunction with Godox's AD200 or AD200 Pro flash body. Simply swap out one of the conventional speedlight head attachments for the ring flash head and the AD200 is converted from a directional speedlight to a ring flash. A simple clip and lock attaches the R200 Ring Flash cable into the head socket.
