That's the nature of HSS. Instead of one full-power firing of the flash at a point when the entire sensor is exposed, it has to fire a series of very fast flashes at different points while different sections of the sensor are exposed between the slit caused by the first and second shutter blades. Otherwise, you'd get one band of well lit exposure through ...

As noted in another answer, High Speed Sync has limitations on available power, because of the way the flash has to be operated to light the full frame. There are a couple ways to get around this. Since you noted a dark band in the frame would be acceptable, because you really only need the window, one method would be to turn off the HSS. This will get ...

Those are just flash basics. Flashes simply cannot put out full power in HSS mode, which HSS will then not likely be enough power this use for your real estate distances. So for your use in this case, use camera S mode (Tv in Canon) so you can set shutter speed to 1/200 second so that HSS flash mode will not be enabled automatically. Limiting shutter ...

You have to attach an X1R-C receiver to the foot of the 430EX II to use it in the Godox 2.4 GHz radio system. The X2T is a dedicated transmitter unit and cannot be used as a receiver. Ideally, I would recommend that you consider getting a Godox TT685-C or V860II-C speedlight instead to use as your off-camera speedlight. It's more expensive than the ...

Yes, you need to attach a separate receiver to the foot of the 430EX II. The 430EX II has a built-in flash wireless slave system, but it will only operate with Canon's proprietary optical wireless system, and only when used with an compatible "Master" flash like a 580EX II, Canon ST-E2, or the built-in flash of some cameras like the T7i or 90D.

I just did the same, using my SB700 (and D850)with the Godox X pro N and the X 1 receivers. It worked great practicing in the house, either on Manual or TTL (on the flashes), but when I tried to set up a quick shot today, the flashes won't flash when on remote mode. I did not remember changing anything after intially finding that the set up was very simple ...
