Godox V1 Pro With Active Cooling Might Be Coming Soon


A patent for a new Godox V1 Pro with active cooling was found by lightingrumours that adds a fan to the Godox V1 that should solve its overheating “issues.” When the Godoxo V1 first launched it had aggressive anti-overheating protection that shut the flash down during demanding shoots.

This was somewhat remedied by firmware 1.4 that just slowed the flash cycle time instead to protect the flash from overheating. The new AD100Pro that was just released already implemented a cooling fan if you do not want to wait and think that your shooting style might be too demanding for the Godox V1.

First NiSi 15mm f/4 Review

Phillipreeve posted the first review of the Nisi 15mm f/4, which you can read here. Below is a brief summary of his findings:

“I found the NiSi 15mm 4.0 to be a useful lens that did not disappoint in the field. I especially like that it was fully usable at f/4.0 (very little field curvature) and that vignetting at this aperture is comparably moderate.”

good

  • across frame sharpness and contrast
  • coma correction
  • vignetting (f/4.0)
  • sunstars
  • handling/build quality
  • minimum focus distance
average

  • vignetting (stopped down)
  • CA correction
  • distortion
  • size/weight
not good

  • flare resistance
  • no exif data
  • slight color cast in the corners
