860II-O Speedlight for Olympus now available

By admin

The popular line of Lithium Ion Battery powered Godox speed lights are now available for Olympus and they have full TTL and HSS compatibility! This is a very powerful Speedlight at half the cost of the competitor. All of the info about the 860ii-O after the break!

If you couldn’t tell from my previous articles about off camera flash, I am a huge fan of the Godox line of lights. Recently they announced the 860II-O is now available for Olympus cameras. This is a game changer for Olympus shooters who want to have a fully functioning TTL Speedlight that will work on camera or wirelessly by using the Godox radio transmitter system (X System).

This is a very powerful Speedlight that runs on lithium ion batteries. The closest competitor (the 900R) comes in at about triple the price for even more power. I can say after shooting with Godox for many years, this is a great Speedlight that is not only powerful but also very durable. These lights are by far the best on the market for Olympus shooters who are looking to have a flexible system that can grow as they grow.
