Who manufactures the MoLights?

All of my MoLight speedlights and flashes are manufactured by Godox Ltd, a large and well-respected manufacturer of photographic gear based out of Shenzhen, China.  You will see the lights under different brand names, including Godox, Neewer, Flashpoint, Strobies, Bolt, Cheetah, and others.  Yes, these are the same flashes and they should all work together perfectly.  All of the MoLight modifiers are proprietary and manufactured specifically for us.


So what’s different about MoLight?

Excellent question.  There are actually several very important benefits to purchasing from MoLight over other brands.

  1. I am a well-known working master photographer and this is the gear that I use.  I know it very well and if I can stand up the abuse of a full-time professional like myself, I am confident that will meet the requirements that virtually any pro can dish out.
  2. You have someone you can contact and talk to.  I’m not a faceless website based who-knows-where. My email is
  3. I am based right here in the good old USA. Place your order today and you will have your gear quickly.  No more waiting weeks for gear to arrive from sketchy overseas retailers. I stock the gear here in Wisconsin and ship using your preferred shipping service: USPS Priority Mail, FedEx Ground and Air.
  4. I go above and beyond offering products.  I also show you how to use these products via educational videos and tutorials.
  5. I personally test each battery and flash after they arrive from the manufacturer. This double-check on quality ensures that only the best gear arrives on your doorstep.
  6. I offer a 2-year replacement guarantee on flashes 200ws and higher, and one year on all speedlights.

  1. Hi Micheal. My names Colin as you can see…. I know that Godox makes a VN860II for Sony, and a X1 also for Sony. Trouble is no one reputable seems to want to sell them. Do you sell them by any chance? I am based in NZ. Cheers Col

  2. Hi Colin. Yes, I will be carrying these soon. I just placed my order with the factory and should have them in stock in 3-4 weeks. Shipping to NZ might be pricey, but I’ll be happy to check into it for you.

  3. Hi Michael, I know you do not yet stock them but are you able to tell me the difference between the VN860S and the TT685S ? I shoot a Sony A7ii and wish to get some reasonably priced flashes. In other words, why would I buy a VN860 and not a TT685 . Hope this makes sense and think you. Gene

  4. Hi Gene
    The only difference is the V860II-S has an internal 11.1v lithium ion battery pack, which means much faster recycle times and no need for an external battery pack. The TT685 runs on AAs. The V860II is higher priced because of the battery — $189 vs $129 for the TT685.

  5. R2 receiver won’t work when not connected to 600rt hot shoe when conected buy a cable only is that normal, like with pocket wizard attached to flash.

  6. I guess I’m having a hard time understanding what you are trying to do and why you would want to try to use the cable with a Canon 600EX-RT when you can more easily slide that flash into the hotshoe of the receiver. I think you are making this too complicated.
