Digital Camera World Verdict

The Godox AD300Pro is one of the best off-camera flashes for most people, balancing high-quality light, easy wireless control, and an affordable price. In the studio, the power is enough to light up full-length portraits, and its battery power avoids any hazardous wires tripping people up. You can also take the flash outside it can help combat bright sunshine or add an extra pop to your nighttime shoots. Godox’s wireless control system is one of the soundest – easy to use, and versatile enough for complex setups with multiple groups. The best thing about the AD300Pro is its affordability, putting high-quality studio results within reach of a lot of photographers.

The cost of flash lighting used to be significant enough of an investment to keep it as the reserve of only the most affluent of photographers or large studios, but we are thankfully now in an era where photography has become more accessible than ever, with new brands driving the cost of equipment down, without also lowering the quality. The Godox AD-Pro stands as a testament to this philosophy, offering photographers a blend of power, portability, and adaptability that's within reach of anyone hoping to improve their craft.

Profoto A2

If you want the premium option, then there are few flashes out there with the build quality and handling of the Profoto A2. However, this option is over twice the price of the AD300Pro with only a third of the power.

Elinchrom Five

The Elinchrom Five delivers exactly what you want from a monolight – speed, and consistency, and works with hundreds of Elinchrom light-shaping tools. However, it comes at a much steeper price than the Godox AD300Pro
