I'm trying to figure out if I can get HSS with my Fuji X-E3 and Godox flash gear, but my camera body doesn't appear on the much-repeated-about-the-interwebz compatibility charts:

Is there any easy way to tell if I can get HSS with either body with Godox's 2.4GHz gear?

Fuji HSS

There's an easy way to tell if your Fuji camera does HSS.

Unlike all the other camera brands supported by the Godox X system, Fuji's HSS setting is controlled by the camera, not by the transmitters. If you have a camera menu selection to set AUTO FP(HSS) on the flash, then you can do HSS. If you don't, you can't.

HSS was added as a feature to the Fuji X flash system in late 2016 with the arrival of the EF-X500 speedlight. So, generally, only the higher-end bodies made in 2016 or later can perform it (with the exception of the X-T1, which can have its firmware updated to v5.0 or later to include this menu command). However, post-2016 production is no guarantee, as the lower-end 2018 models, the X‑T100 and X‑A5, both lack HSS support.

So, the other easy way to check is to go to the Fuji website's flash X System compatibility chart and look at the EF-X500 column. If your camera model is footnoted with a 1, it cannot do HSS. If it's footnoted with a 2, it can, but with newer-than original firmware. And if it's footnoted with a 3, it can do HSS.

At the time of this posting, the Fuji bodies that can do HSS with Godox gear are:

  • GFX 50S
  • GFX 50R
  • X-Pro2
  • X100F
  • X-H1
  • X-T1 (firmware updated to v5.0 or later)
  • X-T2
  • X-T3
  • X-T20
  • X-T30
  • X-E3

Godox HSS with Fuji

If the Godox gear you're using has built-in 2.4 GHz radio triggers and performs TTL, and is for Fuji you can have HSS with an HSS-capable Fuji body.

If the light is not for Fuji, then it must also have up-to-date firmware that can understand the Fuji signalling (see: How do I tell if my Godox trigger or flash needs a firmware update?).

If it's a non-F version of the TT350/V350, it may or may not work in TTL/HSS fully or partially, depending on which "flavor" it is. And the X1R receivers don't do cross-brand TTL/HSS at all.

And, with the following gear, there are additional caveats:

  • AD180, AD360 (Mark I) + XTR16 receiver
  • Mark I V850 and V860 + XTR16s receiver
  • TT600 / TT600S
  • V850 II

These lights/triggers will not do HSS with the XPro-F transmitter, only with the X1T-F transmitter. And:

  • The X1T-F must have its firmware at v3 or later.
  • C.Fn-11 must be set to either 01 or 02 (reports vary on which one gets HSS to work with the XTR16/XTR16s). It must be set to 02 to work with the TT600/V850II.
  • With the add-on receivers, HSS must be set directly on the flash itself.
