Godox's beloved V860 flashes just keep getting better! Built around a rechargeable lithium battery, these flashes have been outperforming speedlites from the big camera brands since 2015. This third iteration brings a suite of performance and quality of life upgrades. Once you use one, you'll never look back!
Strobepro is the largest distributor of Godox products in Canada. Give yourself peace of mind with Strobepro's helpful staff, in-house 2-year warranty, and Calgary-based service centre.
Compared to a conventional flash that uses four AA batteries, you'll see a huge improvement to both recycle times and shots per charge. We're talking a full power recycle of just 1.5 seconds, and 480 full power shots before you'll need to reach for your charger. Don't risk missing a shot!
The built-in 2.4GHz radio receiver offers full power control and triggering without the need for an attached receiver. Just a single radio transmitter is all you’ll need to have full control over all your V860iiN flash units. Use your flash on-camera, off-camera, or as a radio master!
The menu system has received an overhaul to be quicker and more intuitive. Particularly improved is the radio master interface, allowing you to easily control other Godox flashes and strobes from the V860iii's rear display.
A minor complaint with previous iterations of the V860 was its somewhat fiddly wheel-lock for its hot-shoe. The V860iii has a simplified button and lever style lock that will speed things up for you.
A small but bright LED has been added to the front of the flash body, and can be used as a focusing aid or as a rough preview of where your bare flash will land.
TTL mode allows your Sony camera to automatically set the power and zoom of the flash.
High Speed Sync allows you to shoot shutter speeds up to 1/8000s. Perfect for freezing action and giving you full control of the ambient light, even in the bright midday sun.
The huge 20-200mm zoom range allows the flash to push light as far or wide as you'd reasonably want to. Flip out the wide-angle diffuser, and your 20mm zoom will spread to 14mm.
The V860iii brings added flexibility to the tilt and swivel mechanisms. Swivel from 0 to 330 degrees horizontally, and tilt from -7 to 120 degrees vertically.
A small switch on the front of the flash-body can quickly switch you between TTL and Manual modes. When using the V860iii on camera, it provides a quick and tactile way to cycle between modes without entering internal menus.

I’m new to lighting in photography and this is very versatile for on top of the camera and fir bouncing light off an umbrella with a bracket ! The fellas at strobepro have helped me immensely. Even assisted while I encountered a problem at a shoot and had to call them
Upgraded from the Godox V860ii and so far loving it. Functions very similarly, faster recycle time and ease of use with the change of controls/buttons has been what I've noticed so far. Great service from the gentleman at the store when I stopped in. They were the only place in Calgary that had it in stock which really saved my butt because I was on a time crunch to get another after my previous one broke. Thanks guys, I'll definitely be back!
