    Godox Extension heads question

    How many members use Godox extension heads? And if so, do you recommend them? Are they helpful? I believe extension heads might be available for other strobes besides the AD200. Just looking for any helpful info.

    I haven't used one, but it interesting. The cold shoe would mount to a stand, but if you mount it to the camera, you would lose your hot shoe capabilities for your remote trigger. (Thinking out loud) Ha!

    I wouldn't put the extension head on the camera. I'd use it with some type of modifier on a light stand. Supposedly the stand has less of a chance to tip over because of there being less weight at the top.

    There is a clamp people suggest to use to clamp the actual light to the stand but at a much lower position. This is the clamp:

    I had not thought about putting the extension on a stand. My plan was a grip stick and use the Magmod mount and modifiers. There is a holster for the AD200. I bought the round head as well and then COVID hit... But I do like the stand ideas.

    I use MagMod modifiers, too. Perhaps they'd work similarly as though mounting the modifiers on a flash - although I haven't seen any MagMod in use with the extension head. Here is a B&H image of the extension head on a light stand (might be a different clamp than the one I asked about to attach the AD200 to the light stand).

    @hark, The Magmod stuff works great on the head. I do need to go order that cable now. You can even use the Magmod handle to mount the cold shoe on the foot. I also got the round head and that will work with the extension as well. You have inspired me Cindy. I have to shoot some photos of my nephews shop and this setup will work well in some of the tight spaces that I was struggling to figure out.
