The PIXAPRO® GIO1 TTL (Godox's V1) is a powerful compact portable TTL compatible Speedlight flashgun which features a round flash head instead of the traditional rectangular-shape and is powered by a high capacity 2600mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery. Unlike traditional speedlites that use AA batteries, the GIO1 uses a lithium-ion battery which will give you an impressive 480 full-powered shots per charge and with an ultra-fast recycling time of up to 1.5 seconds and virtually no slowdown as the battery power diminishes. This removes the need for bulky external battery packs, or a bags of AA batteries and will keep you going throughout your shoot. With a built-in receiver and a variety of different modes from HSS to the multi-burst, it is perfect for people who shoot weddings, portraits, events, fashion, sports, fitness & advertising. It is especially good for shooting on location due to the flash being easily portable. The GIO1 Speedlite produces smooth-gradated lighting, for more pleasing results.

The PIXAPRO® GIO1 TTL Speedlite has a 9-stop power range (1/1 to 1/256 power) adjustable in either 1/3 or 1/10 stop increments, with flash durations between 1/300 second to 1/20,000 second for sharper images whilst maintaining colour accuracy throughout its power range which opens up a whole world of possibilities. It also features a variety of different flash modes. This includes a multi-flash mode, which can be set to between 2 and 100 flashes at a frequency between 1 and 199Hz (flashes per second), which allows you to create many different effects such as stroboscopic photography.

Great for times when you want to lower the exposure of the bright sky, and to fill your subject in with flash, or if you want to shoot with a wide-open aperture in the midday Sun.

As well as being powered by a Li-Ion battery, the PIXAPRO® GIO1 also features a built-in 2.4GHz flash transceiver, which allows it to be used as a master flash or alongside your existing flashes in conjunction with the PIXAPRO 2.4GHz flash Triggers and receivers. This allows you to control your flash heads remotely from the flash or trigger such as flash power settings, changing groups & channels and Triggering. It is part of The ONE System, which you can mix and match any PIXAPRO range flash.

With the high capacity rechargeable Li-ion battery and short flash duration, it is sure to keep you going throughout your shoot. The ultimate portable on-location flash strobe Speedlight, ideal for shooting weddings, portraits, events, fashion, sports, fitness & advertising.
In order to trigger the GIO1, we have included an ST-IV trigger in this kit. The PIXAPRO PRO ST-IV (equivalent to Godox's XPRO) a 2.4GHz TTL Radio flash trigger system capable of transmitting TTL information between your camera and compatible flashes. The PIXAPRO PRO ST-IV trigger has a transmission range of approximately 100m in an open area, and since the transmitter and receivers use radio waves as opposed to Infra-red, you don’t need a direct line of sight and is not affected by bright sunlight which can sometimes cause problems with optical flash trigger systems.
Also included in this kit is our 65cm Rice-Bowl Softbox. Featuring 16 durable heat-resistant rods, and comes with two layers of diffusion, which produces soft, even yet focused lighting. It also comes supplied with a removable deflector dish, enabling it to be used as a large parabolic beauty dish, for times when you want slightly more contrasty lighting. To use the GIO1 with this softbox, we have included our L-Bracket. The Pixapro hot-shoe adapter allows the GIO1 to be used with Bowens compatible accessories, such as beauty dishes, reflectors, snoots and softboxes etc. The included 190cm foldable light stand features a 5-tier extension making it possible to be extended to a full height of 190cm, which can then collapse to a height of 50cm which makes it easily compact and storable. An all-round excellent stand for use with lightweight lighting such as Speedlite.
