Introduction

The Godox TT600 is basically a Godox TT685 without the E-TTL II functionality. If you are in the market for a very reasonably priced manual speedlite with full radio X wireless communication (master and slave) and high speed sync (HSS) then you can’t go far wrong with the TT600. This is one of my favourite budget speedlites.

The Godox TT600 was released in January 2016.

Godox TT600 Price 

£56 / US$59 (guide price only, updated 17 Feb 2021)

Amazon (UK) / B&H Photo (US) / Adorama* (US) / Amazon (US)

Adorama have rebranded this model as the Flashpoint Zoom R2 Manual Flash

Compatibility

The Godox TT600 adopts the Godox radio wireless X system so is compatible with the Godox AD360II-C, TT685-C and X1T-C and XPro-C controllers. It can act as either master or slave unit. Since the flash power output is set manually and it doesn’t support E-TTL metering the metal foot only has 1 pin. This means that it can be used as an on-camera flash with most brands of camera not just Canon.
