Jason Vaughan reviews the NEW CITI300 PRO (AD300 PRO)
Twin On-The-Go CITI300 PRO (Godox AD300 PRO) Kit with Backpack and Triggerhas been put together to make life easier for photographers who are looking for a small, yet powerful battery-powered monolight strobe that is very lightweight and small enough to throw into their camera bag for use on location. The Compact 300Ws battery powered flash gives plenty power for the small size and a 60x60cm Square softbox to diffuse the light. It also comes with foldable stands to easily mount the lights too and a trigger to make using them wirelessly on your camera simple. This is the perfect kit for those photographers that travel from Wedding, Portrait, Fashion, Lifestyle, and events photographers
300Ws of Power Small enough to throw into your Camera bag.
The CITI300 Pro is a compact 300Ws strobe, measuring a mere 190 x 100 x 90mm, which is smaller than some camera lenses meaning it can be easily carried around in your camera bag along with your other camera gear. Whilst the CITI300 Pro is compact, it has a lot of power for its size, powerful enough to rival some studio strobes, enabling you to take stunning photographs, in virtually any location.
TTL and High-speed Sync Compatibility
The CITI300 Pro features TTL Auto-exposure, which works with your camera’s metering system to determine the best flash-exposure. It also features High-Speed Sync (HSS) support making it possible to shoot at a shutter speed that is faster than your camera’s Sync speed, enabling you to kill the ambient exposure and use the flash to illuminate your subject so the sky doesn’t get blown out. (Compatible Flash Trigger Required).
Battery Powered for your Convenience.
The CITI300 Pro features a rechargeable 14.4v/2600mAh Lithium-ion Battery, which can produce approximately 320 Full Powered Flashes Per Charge, with fast recycle times of between 0.01 – 1.5 Seconds. This is typically enough to get you through most shooting sessions, however, the batteries are interchangeable, which enables you to swap out the battery for a fully charged one if shooting for extended periods of time. Each battery has an approximate charge time of 2.5 hours.
Advanced Flash Features
The CITI300 Pro’s 300Ws 5600K ± 200k daylight-balanced flash tube can produce flash durations of between 1,220s - 1/10,200s, which is perfect for Freezing motion. It also had a 9-stop power-range, enabling it to be turned down to a little as 1/256 of its full-power.
Bi-Colour LED Modelling Lamp
The CITI300 Pro features a 12W Bi-Colour COB LED modelling light, which can be adjusted in colour-temperature between 3000-6000K, which can enable you to get an idea of how the light will fall onto your subject before taking your shot.
Built-In 2.4GHz ONE System Receiver
The CITI300 PRO features a Built-in 2.4GHz flash receiver, which enables it to be used with the included ST-IV trigger, along with any of the other flash triggers available in the PIXAPRO 2.4GHz ONE System flash trigger range. This enables you to control the power of your flashes remotely as well as allowing you to take advantage of the TTL and HSS capabilities of the CITI300 Pro. The CITI300 PRO supports Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, Fuji film and Pentax cameras, with full TTL control. It can also be used with other brands, such as Hasselblad, Leica, and PhaseOne in manual mode.
Ideal for the Mobile Photographer
This kit includes two portable 60x60cm pop-up softboxes that produce soft and flattering lighting, perfect for portraits, weddings, and lifestyle shoots. The softboxes fold down to a super compact size, meaning they take up very little space making them super convenient to carry around and store. This kit also comes with two -heavy-duty foldable light stands, and a convenient backpack, to enable you to easily carry everything around in.
This kit has been put together for those shooting on location who would like a powerful flash option and professional setup, in a compact size easy to transport. The 300Ws battery flash will keep going throughout the most challenging of shoots and can be used with the square softboxes to diffuse and soften the light. The foldable small but strong stands will easily support the load and can be moved around with little to no fuss. All of this packs away into the backpack for the ultimate portable flash kit. This makes it the ideal option for those photographers shooting on location, from Wedding, Portrait, Fashion, Lifestyle, and events photographers
