After lots of rumors, it is finally here. The new Godox M600D daylight 600W COB light. This will be Godox’s most powerful LED to date and together with the new 8″ and 10″ Fresnels it will bring a more affordable high power focusable daylight to professional video shooters and filmmakers.
Godox has been on a roll recently with the introduction of several advanced products including its professional Bowens Spotlight Attachment, Parabolic Light Focusing System, and several new high power strobe systems (one of which we shall review early next year).

- Bowens S-mount compatible.
- Special effect modes (broken bulb, flash, lightning, and TV).

- Advanced low noise cooling system (mute mode for silent operation at reduced power).
- Support for AC and DC power supplies (100-240) and V-mount (26V battery) option on the controller.
- Clamp light stand holder for the controller.
- App control and support for the RC-A6 remote. DMX 512 support.

The two new 8″ and 10″ Fresnels released alongside the M600D are also interesting. According to Godox they amplify the light up to 19 times and can zoom the light from 10-40 degrees (FLS8) or 10-35 degrees (FLS10). They work with optional barn doors (LB-01/2), weight 2-3KG (depending on the model), and come in a case.
