The reason you were triggering the other flashes is that the other photographer is a rookie. She was probably using the flashes as optical slaves... bad decision. Even if she was using a radio signal she could easily set up a different radio frequency. It is a rookie mistake leaving the flashes as the frequency 1. Because most likely other nonprofessional ...

OSX-only options G3 / F3 Godox/Flashpoint has released an OSX version of the G3/F3 updater. However, at this time, it only supports updates for the following devices: V1 for Pentax TT350-P and Xpro-P AD400 Pro Flashpoint R2 Pro II For all other devices, or from Linux, however there are a few different ways you can do this, if you don't want to, say, ...

I wanted to know if I can use Godox AD 200 without the transmitter such as X1 T or Pro? Yes, there are several methods one may use to trigger a Godox AD200 without using a Godox 2.4Ghz transmitter. You could use a wired connection between your camera's PC terminal (or an adapter mounted on the hot shoe if your camera does not have a PC terminal) and the ...

Your question is poorly worded but I assume you are asking if you can use the Godox X1T wireless trigger with your Godox V860 without attaching an external receiver. The answer is no. The Godox v860 does not have a built-in 2.4GHz receiver needed to communicate with the Godox X1T transmitter. To use it with the X1T, you need an XTR16S receiver attached to ...

No, this setup won't work. You're close, but not quite right. The X1T is not a receiver (hence, the "T" suffix) or transceiver — it is a transmitter only. So one X1T cannot trigger another X1T. You still need all the pieces you mentioned, but you also need an X1R to trigger the camera shutter. With wireless remote shutter and flash, you have two events: ...

Here's a list of common things to check. Are you using the wrong slave mode? For your speedlight to be a radio slave, the antenna icon must be showing, and the backlight should be orange. Godox's TT685 and V860II speedlights for Canon, Nikon, and Sony have five different syncing modes that the horizontal lightning bolt button cycles you through: On-...

Profoto make a case with a shoulder strap for their A1 flash. I'm sure there are similar cheap knockoffs somewhere. Godox makes a similar type bag for their much larger AD600 Pro. Many lens cases come with shoulder straps, Some might be the right size for your flashes. I just use the cases that come with my Yongnuo and Canon speedlights. They have belt ...

why doesn't it come with the flashlight itself? This is in general for flash heads, not only the Godox brand. Imagine this scenario. You want a 3 light setup for a portrait... You would end with two triggers on the shelf and one in your camera. If you need to illuminate a big building... You got the idea. The remote trigger is not a required device. It is ...

The Godox XProC will work fine, but you will need a Godox X1R-C receiver to attach to the 580EXII hotshoe. This will give you full control (HSS, TTL, ...) over both the AD200 and the speedlite.


2

No. While the X1R-C and XPro-S are compatible in terms of firing and M power control, the Godox X1R receivers do not perform cross-brand TTL in the way the built-in radio transceivers in the Godox TTL full-sized speedlights (TT685, V860II, V1) do. If, say, you were to purchase a Godox TT685-C and checked its firmware version was v3.1 or later, you could ...

The SK400II doesn't suport TTL or HSS. In a monolight, you have to upgrade to something like the QT series, or one of the AD battery powered lights. The trigger supports all the Godox 2.4GHz lights, so it has controls for TTL and HSS. Not all lights support these features though.

Godox has several transmitters in their 2.4 GHz radio system that can trigger and/or control the AD200: Flashpoint R2 Pro II-C Godox Xpro-C Godox X2T-C Godox X1T-C Flashpoint SPT single-pin transceiver (manual trigger; no TTL/HSS/power control) XT32 (manual trigger with HSS/power control) XT16 (manual trigger with power control) The 580EXII, however, does ...

If you already have a regular flash for your Sony a7R III, you can use that to trigger the AD200 using it’s built in S1/S2 optical slave mode. Another basic method is using a Sync Cord with a 3.5mm plug. The older FT-16 transmitter/receiver system is also compatible with the AD200.

The simplest and cheapest way to accomplish off-camera light with remote shutter release using Godox is to get a Flashpoint SPT (single-pin transceiver). Sadly, this is only a good solution if you live in the USA, because the transceiver is an Adorama Flashpoint exclusive. It's basically a Godox analog to the Yongnuo RF-605. The SPT transceiver can do ...

I've never tried this, but I think the Frio Cold Shoe Adapter would do the trick. See Is there a simple flash bracket which holds a flash securely? — 8ts a plastic shoe which snaps securely to the flash"s foot. There's space near the front which you could fit a thin strap though, or you could get a threaded pin to attach to a wider strap.

Your XPro-C and X2T-C Godox triggers speak a different "language" than the radio receiver in the Canon 600EX-RT flash. You can't control the 600EX-RT directly via radio with a Godox trigger. To control the 600EX-RT with your Godox transmitters you need a compatible Godox receiver attached to the hot foot of the Canon flash. The only such receiver available ...

The flash needs to be set to use its hot foot for communication with the camera. If you set the flash to 'Slave', it will ignore anything attached to the hot foot and will monitor its optical sensor for optical pulses from an optical master flash (or ST-E2 flash controller). You should set the flash to 'Manual' power mode in the same way you would if the ...

Often, without Windows, it's impossible to update firmware on devices that don't support operating systems other than Windows, unless some kind open-source developers take it upon themselves to support the products. Some options to consider: Use an old computer that still runs Windows. This is what I did last time I needed to update firmware on my Godox ...

If you need TTL/HSS, then whatever goes on the hotshoe of the camera has to have a matching flash foot that has all the contacts required for electronic communication. So, the V860II-C or the X1T-C will not work with full function on the Sony multi-interface hotshoe of the α6500. Only the -S versions will. With the -C versions, you will get triggering, ...
