4. Why has the Godox KNOWLED MG1200Bi LED Video changed to G-mount?

The Godox MG1200Bi has made a significant shift from using Bowens S-Type mounts to G-mounts for some reason. One of the primary reasons for switching to the G-mount is its durability. The G-mount is much bigger and stronger, allowing it to be safer when used, especially in professional movie production.

Because of its larger size, it provides a more efficient transfer of light from the MG1200Bi to its modifier, improving light output and giving better control over the quality of light. Moreover, the development of a new mount system allows the light to identify specific accessorries and modifiers are attached. It is possible for the light to automatically correct for any minor colour shifts brought on by the modifier, creating in uniform illumination regardless of the modifier being used.


5. What modifiers are compatible with the Godox KNOWLED MG1200Bi?

The MG1200Bi is designed with the newest G-Mount system, which means it is compatible with the new Godox G-mount modifiers. Here is a list of its lighting modifiers and accessories.
