In December, word of an upcoming Godox AD1200Pro got out. As usually happens, Adorama popped up a listing almost immediately afterwards. That listing didn’t really reveal much except for a few product photos, though. Now, the UK’s biggest Godox distributor, Pixapro, has also put up a listing for the Pixapro CITI1200Pro, showing off some of the specs for the new unit.

Although the specs are subject to change, as Adorama still shows the item as being “in development“, the Pixapro listing does offer some clues as to what we can expect. The currently listed specs and features look a little something like this (this list will be updated as more is confirmed)…

Although the power options do indicate that there will be an AC power module, the “What’s in the box” section only lists the pack, the head and the battery module. So, presumably, as with Godox’s other lights, the AC module is a separate purchase addon.

It’s funny how things seem to come full circle. Everybody complained about having separate head and pack systems, and it was the biggest complaint against the Godox AD360II when the AD200 was released. Then the remote heads came along for the AD200, AD600, and AD400Pro and now suddenly everybody wants their light separate from the bulk of their light’s hardware.

No price has been listed for either the Pixapro CITI1200Pro or the Flashpoint XPLOR1200Pro yet, and there’s still no mention on the official Godox website. We’ll keep you updated as we find out more.

    Thanks UDI. We are excited to get this into the UK and on sale, samples for The Photography Show ( NEC Birmingham ) in March are hopefully going to get flown out to us, but we do have a slight delay due to the ongoing issues in China with Coronavirus

    I remember when lots of people were upset about a separate head and pack. I never understood any complaint about it. I’m happy with compact strobes and my packs. maybe its easier to just move the stand with the compact strobe on location. It’s photography, you shouldn’t be in a rush for taking good images. And If you are, you have probably an assistant. As I do when something important is commoing up.

      I’ve shot images with lots of setup and wedding images that are total run and gun, I see the value of the all in one lights as well as these larger lights, I think it all depends on what you’re shooting. Now we have more tool options, overall a good thing!

    I think it’s a smart move and, reading past the 1200W sun overpowering blurb, a good one for studio photographers. Profoto’s pack and head systems are now are upwards of £10k and quite often 600w isn’t powerful enough in the studio. The long reach cable means it can be boomed easily. Also it’s handy being able to see power levels and controls on the ground – the AD600 Pros are great but if they’re up high and you’re trying to check settings it can be a hassle.

    For me though the biggest plus is the modelling light which, finally, has the power to be useful. As much as I rate the AD600 Pros the modelling light is next to useless in the studio once it’s in a modifier and through diffusion.
