Recently we have expanded in to Photography and while we had a good set of Godox Flashes we wanted to get something with a bit more umpf for outdoor use. Since our main business is videography most of the gear budget is allocated to that division of Vivid Colour Films. The target was to get the best bang for buck for an outdoor strobe, we had set our eyes on three Godox Models the AD200 Pro, The Ad400 Pro and the Ad300 pro.
Our requirements where pretty specific, a portable light that was strong enough for daylight shooting that was light and easy to carry. It didnt take long to decide on the AD300 Pro. It had all the features we needed including HSS and a really good amount of flashes per battery. The added bicolour modeling light meant we could use it in videos, although its not a strong light so more a fill or effects light during shoots. Since we bought our set of AD300 Pro’s we have shot a few promos and using it was easy and without any fails or issues. Here is the full review of the Godox AD300 Pro High Speed Portable Strobe.
We ordered the AD300 Pro via Amazon. The price at the time of purchase was 520 USD excluding shipping. Included in the box was a free cleaning brush as some vendors on amazon always include small gifts to win the sale over competitors. Turns out it was a makeup brush 😀
We researched three online sellers and concluded that Amazon was the best option for us, although the prices where pretty similar Amazon delivered within 3 days (express shipping)
AD300 Pro Specs
Here are the detailed spec's as provided by Godox in the user manual.

On Paper you can already see that this flash offers outstanding performance for the price. The features as well as the output power and battery capacity outperform any flash in the same price range.
Whats in the Box?
Let's have a look at whats included with the AD300Pro
The AD300 Pro comes with pretty much everything you need to go out and shoot, the only thing you will need is diffusion and a stand and you are good to go.
