The PIXAPRO® GIO1 TTL (Godox's V1) is a powerful compact portable TTL 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 (NOT INCLUDED) 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 with virtually no slowdown as the battery power diminishes. This removes the need for bulky external battery packs, or 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. This gives you a more of a natural-looking round light fall-off in comparison to the traditional rectangular Speedlite.
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. It features a user-friendly interface, with a large LCD screen with easy to access buttons and a control dial, which allows you to quickly and easily adjust your flash settings.
The GIO1 gives you access to TTL automatic exposure which will quickly provide you with perfect exposure without the need for manual metering, which could sometimes cause you to miss key moments. It also has other features like High-Speed Sync up to 1/8000 sec as well as a front and rear curtain sync mode. High-Speed Sync Mode allows your flash to sync at higher shutter-speeds than normal. 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.
The GIO1 also has a zoom range of 28-105mm, this helps you to focus the beam of light, acting as a spotlight or expand the focus of the beam of light for even widespread coverage, allowing you to add more creativity to your photography.
The GIO1 has a magnetic modular mount, this means you can quickly and easily alternate between different modifiers with little to no fuss, the fastest way to modify your light.
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, or 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’s part of The ONE System, which you can mix and match any PIXAPRO range flash. The flash is available with popular camera brands from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, Fuji and Pentax with full control, and even high-end cameras from Hasselblad, Leica, and PhaseOne with basic control. You also have a choice of 16 different channels, and 3x groups giving you maximum flexibility for your photographic projects. With a new scan for the best channel feature, this will help to reduce the chances of misfires due to interference from other devices making the flash more reliable on your shoot and making sure you don’t miss those important shots.
The GIO1 Speedlite also has an Overheat Protection Mode, to protect the flash if it runs at high temperatures when shooting frequently in a short period of time, this will help to increase the longevity of the flash and battery life.
Due to the compact design of this flash, it is also perfect for using in small spaces out of the way, great for interior photography.
This is the Speedlite that both amateur and professional photographers have been waiting for a long time. 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.
