 Thanks Mayank for your question . 

 Godox 200 is definitely a good light as it comes with all the recent technologies, such as HSS, TTL and much more. But when  you are shooting outdoor, you normally need more powerful light sources. Specially with the harsh sunlight you need light which is powerful enough to balance the light with available lights. I use profoto b1x 400 watt units for my work and sometimes for some shots i had to use two of them together from one point of light 

 So my answer for your question is, if you can buy more powerful lights then you should go for that as they will definitely help you with harsh light situations. But for shade or cloudy day Godox 200 Ad pro is a good choice. So i hope this answers your query and you will be able to take your decision for buying the right light for you

Hey sir!

We just talked via Insta so i am writing all my light related doubts here.

Sir i am a budding Fashion Photographer and an AD film maker. I use Nikon D3400 (i may upgrade soon) with18-55cm and 50mm 1.8, till now i was working with natural light but now i am willing to take one step up in fashion.

Hence please suggest me an affordable light set up for outdoor fashion photography.

Sir i am not someone with loads of money so i am trying to buy something that may be used for multipurpose like a flash used with softbox can be used for fashion it can also be used as on camera flash in events. My first priority is fashion only). Or is there any light which i can use in fashion and ad films as well. Also elaborate do i need to buy magmod ? If yes, is Digitech Magmod good enough ?

I may also upgrade my camera so also guide me how many things i have to change in my this set up to make the set up compatible with my new camera.

Hey thanks for your question

Well first of all you are asking me to give you some superpowers, lolz i mean see there is no flash which will work for everything. I mean you need to priorities according to your budget and your use. If you want to use on camera flash which is good for events and at the same time for some outdoor fashion shoots then you should buy Godox860. Now with that flash you get very less power which i think can be a problem to you shooting outdoor full body shots. So for outdoor my preference is to go for Godox400ADPRO. But as AD400 is a big studio kind of unit you can not use it for bouncing on camera.

So solution for your query is, for on camera flash you can buy a simple Godox 520 kind of flash which will cost very less. And for your outdoor usage buy a flash which gives you good power, such as Godox Ad400. And about your new camera well my preference is always canon. But if you wanna stick to your nikon then you need to go for any good full frame body. But make sure that you need to select the brand first then buy gears as the triggers are gonna be as per the brands.

No problem sir. Ill drop the plan of on-camera flash. Will Ad200 be good enough as Ad400 is out of my budget sir. Also my Nikon D3400 doesn’t have HSS, will D3400 be able to utilize the flash light fully due to this drawback. Please elaborate this shortcoming. If i buy Ad200 can i use it later as a studio light as well ?

 Well i would suggest AD 200 any day it is amazing light in budget and you can buy a good body later on which supports your all functions.

 Hey thanks for your question and sure we have the answer for you. So as you said you are shooting weddings and fashion both now the flash for that does not go different at all. You have given us two options AD 200 and V1 well my preference is to go with AD 200 because of the extra power you are getting there. And about using your flash on camera, well ya with AD 200 you can not do that but that should not change your decision because for that purpose you can buy a cheaper manual flash like Godox 520 which is very cheap and works perfectly for bouncing purposes. I hope this solves your question.
