The most obvious difference is the power output between the Godox AD200 and the Godox V1. The Godox AD200 boasts a power output of 200Ws, while the Godox V1 offers a lower production of 76Ws. However, the typical output power for speed lights ranges from 60 to 100 watt seconds, and the Godox V1's output power is sufficient for most users.

Furthermore, the Godox AD200 is priced at $349, whereas the Godox V1 starts at $259.

Those mentioned above are just a few of the minor differences, though. When you delve deeper into factors such as recycle time, flash duration, sync speed, battery life, and color temperature, the distinctions between the Godox camera flashes become even more pronounced. To facilitate the decision-making process and make choosing between these camera flashes easier, we have compiled some of the most relevant features to demonstrate how they compare on paper.

Design and Size

Firstly, there is a significant difference in dimensions and weight between the Godox AD200 and the Godox V1. The Godox AD200 measures 6.6 x 3.0 x 2.0 inches and weighs 19.7 ounces, while the Godox V1 measures 3 x 7.8 x 3.7 inches and weighs 1.17 pounds. The Godox AD200 is slightly larger than the standard speedlight.

Recycle Time

The recycle time is another differentiating factor between the Godox AD200 and Godox V1 camera flashes. While both flashes have relatively fast recycle times, the Godox AD200 stands out with a recycle time ranging from 0.01 to 2.1 seconds. That enables shorter consecutive shots and reduces the waiting time between flashes. On the other hand, the Godox V1 has an approximate recycle time of 1.5 seconds. It's worth noting that the Godox AD200pro, another camera flash model, also offers a recycle time of 0.01 to 2.1 seconds.

Both camera flashes share features, such as a High-Speed Sync of up to 1/8000s and a color temperature of 5600K (+/-200K). While there may be some minor differences between the two, these are the key points to consider when comparing the wireless operation of the Godox AD200 and the Godox V1.
