Although resembling the recent Godox V850 and V860 speedlites, the TT685 feature a larger Dot Matrix LCD display with on screen menu options. As well as fully back-lit function buttons, including extra Link and Mode buttons.
More significantly though, instead of Lithium-ion power, Godox have chosen to start with a more traditional 4 x AA battery powered unit. With the option of connecting an external High Voltage Battery Pack for faster recycle times etc.
The TT685 provide a 3.5mm Sync Port, and USB Port for firmware updates.
As well as a 4 pin communication port backward compatible with Godox’s existing 433MHz clip on FTR-16s Remote Manual radio receivers, also used with the current V850 and V860 speedlites.
The Godox FT-16 and Cells IIc can be used as transmitter units to the FTR-16s receivers.
The Remote Manual FT-16 radio system is also used with the current popular AD360 and AD180 Witstro bare bulb flash units, and many of Godox’s current portable and studio lights. So the new TT685 should also combine with those nicely.
A High Voltage External Battery Port is provided at the front of the flash, for connecting external battery packs like Godox’s popular PB960, or other Canon compatible packs.
Of most significance though, the TT685 also have their own 2.4GHz radio transceiver unit built inside, providing full ETTL and HSS enabled Radio Master and Slave modes. With a stated range of up to approximately 100 meters.
The Godox X1 TTL transceivers can also be used as a Master / Transmitter unit mounted on the camera to control the TT685’s off camera.
The X1 receivers will allow other third party ETTL compatible flashes, to be combined in the system as ETTL / HSS enables Slave flashes.
The X1 TTL provide a camera shutter release function, and will fire studio lights as well.
