Coming Soon: Flashpoint Zoom Li-on X R2 TTL On-Camera Round Flash Speedlight for Sony

Flashpoint Zoom Li-on X R2 TTL On-Camera Round Flash Speedlight For Sony ($259) has been listed for pre-order on the Adorama website – but availability date is not yet listed. The same flash will be available elsewhere as Godox V1.

If you’re thinking this looks suspiciously like a Profoto A1-knockoff, you’re not alone. If price is your main objective, Godox and Flashpoint offer great value. The main complaint I receive about Godox/Flashpoint is they lack the consistent output and durability of Profoto or Sony flashes.
