Godox S2 Speedlite Bracket for Bowens
The new S2 bracket feels quite sturdy and has a bit of weight to it compared to the original S-type bracket, and it seems as if the build quality has improved significantly. The mount that has the tilting head and the one that mounts to the stand are now made of metal, which gives it a more robust feel. Overall it appears to be very solidly built, especially the all metal stand mount.
There are a few differences between the Godox S2 Speedlite Flash Bracket and the original Godox S-Type Bracket:
- The handle that controls the tilting function has changed. It’s much easier to use, and you can pull that out and reposition the handle if you need to.
- The locking system is almost a crank-style, and there is also the improvement in build quality and sturdiness of the light stand mount which is made of metal instead of plastic.
- There is also a difference in the way you can mount the bracket to the light stand. You can do it the standard, vertical way, or horizontally. The S2 bracket has a larger opening on the mounting point that allows for it to be mounted horizontally. To do this, you will need to reposition the locking knob in the point provided for this purpose.
- The mounting point for the umbrella is now slide-in, and there is a tab inside that locks it with tension, as opposed to the locking knob on the S-type. This makes the umbrella mounting a lot more stable, which helps in both vertical and horizontal positions.
- The last big change is the method of mounting different flashes to the bracket. There’s the standard flat mounting point that lets you mount standard Godox speedlites and flashes like the TT350 and TT685. If you slide the first piece out, remove the top piece and slide it back in, you can see that it’s rounded at the bottom. This allows you to mount Godox V1 flashes and AD200/AD200 Pro flashes, unlike the previous S-type bracket. When you remove another piece of the bracket, the centre hole becomes much larger, which then allows you to use other lights like the AD400 Pro.
