Godox TT350C Review

Introduction

The Godox TT350C speedlite is the smallest addition to the ever-expanding Godox speedlite family. This pocket-sized flash unit weighs almost half that of a regular speedlite and takes just 2 AA batteries. Flash output at full power is less by about 1.5 stops when compared to its larger siblings but that is to be expected. However, the Godox TT350C still maintains many of the features found on more expensive models such as TTL and manual flash modes, high speed sync, a respectable 24-105mm zoom head, and full integration into the Godox X radio wireless system. It can act as both master and slave unit for other lights in the system and that includes the powerful Godox Witstro flashes and many Godox studio lights.

Due to its compact size and light weight the TT350C is ideal for one of the smaller mirrorless camera systems and seems to be marketed as such. It still works fine with a DSLR though.

Overall this is a speedlite for casual use. Its small size means that you are more likely to throw it in your bag and take with you making it ideal for travel photography and for fill-lighting or indoor use. It’s never going to be powerful enough to overpower the sun. At half the weight of a standard speedlite you could always buy two of them and use them together to double the flash output. With the addition of a radio trigger this would give you a very flexible flash system at a reasonable cost.

The Godox TT350C was released in 2017

Compatibility

The Godox TT350C is compatible with the Canon ETTL II flash system and can therefore be used with most Canon EOS cameras. The TT350C uses the Godox X radio system and can act as either a master or slave flash. When using it in radio slave mode it’s recommended to use a dedicated radio controller/master such as the Godox XPro-C (highly recommended and quick to use), the XT32C (still a good option) or the X2T-C controller. Using a speedlite on-camera as a master is generally a waste of a speedlite and adds unnecessary weight.

The Godox TT350 is the smallest of the Godox flash family and small enough to fit in the hand.
The Godox TT350C is almost half the size of a standard speedlite and weighs just 200g (excluding batteries). It really is pocket-sized.

Godox TT350 Specification

Power

Maximum Guide Number 36m @ 105mm & ISO 100
Comparative Guide Number 18m* @ 35mm & ISO 100 (*estimated)
Speedlite power is given as a Guide Number (GN) and can be shown as a distance either in metres (m) or feet (ft or ‘). Manufacturers typically give the Guide Number when the flash is zoomed at it’s maximum focal length (mm), in the case of the Godox TT350 this is 105mm. If you plan to compare the power of various speedlites then it is standard practice to compare the GN when measured at ISO 100 and using a focal length of 35mm. For comparison purposes the Canon 600EX ii-RT has a GN of 54m@105mm & ISO 100 making it around 1.5 stops more powerful.
