The Godox AD200 is an excellent flash system, and it is a photography flash I use for many different photography applications. Even though the AD200 is a versatile and very useful flash, it isn’t all sweetness and light and it does have its disadvantages and negatives.
Before buying the Godox Witstro AD200 I read several reviews, checked out loads of Youtube clips and asked plenty of questions on the photography forums I actively participate in. When I was thinking about buying a Godox AD200 I wanted to know about its negatives and the types of problems I am likely to experience, however I struggled. Finding a glowing Godox AD200 review was easy but finding a balanced Godox AD200 review, i.e. one that explores the advantages and the disadvantages as well as the positives and negatives, was like finding rocking horse poop.
Even though I struggled to find the negatives of the Godox AD200 I went ahead and ordered one, and boy am I glad I did – the AD200 is awesome.
Rather than creating a balanced review about the Godox AD200 I thought I would create a video clip identifying and exploring the negatives and disadvantages, i.e. the information I struggled to find, to help photographers thinking about buying the Godox AD200 make an informed decision.
My video footage “The disadvantage of the Godox Witstro AD200” has attracted quite a bit of attention on Youtube, which is good, but a lot of this has been negative, which is not so good. If people don’t agree with me, that’s fine and I have no problem with it. After all, we are all different. What I do have a problem with is the nasty, spiteful and downright rude comments some people have felt compelled to write.
From the comments made it is obvious the people writing them haven’t bothered to watch my clip all the way through, and by not doing this they have totally missed the points I am trying to make. If they want to leave a nasty comment they should at least make it relevant! Relevant or not, all nasty and spiteful comments are deleted as soon as I get to read them.

The Witstro AD200 isn't the only Godox flash I own. Oh no, since discovering the Godox brand a few years back I became an instant fan and have now amassed quite a collection of Godox branded flashes, strobes and accessories.
