FLASHPOINT R2 PRO-N / GODOX XPRO-N – TTL Transmitter Announced

 

Flashpoint have announced the R2 Pro-N / Godox XPro-N, TTL and HSS enabled radio transmitter for Nikon DSLR’s, and they are available now from Adorama for $69.00.

With a large clear dot matrix LCD screen displaying all 5 groups at simultaneously, and individual dedicated groups buttons, the Pro transmitter provides a big improvement over the previous R2 / X1 transmitter’s user interface.

And therefore a great improvement for the complete Flashpoint & Godox 2.4GHz flash system.

 

SIGNIFICANT NEW FEATURES INCLUDE –

  • Large Dot Matrix LCD Screen Displaying 5 Groups
  • 5 Individual Dedicated Group Buttons
  • Display Zoom – Displays One Group Larger with More Details
  • TCM Function – TTL – CONVERT – MANUAL
  • Flash Head Zoom Control Interface – by Group
  • Modelling Light Control – by Group (Currently On /Off Only)
  • Global Adjustment of Group Power Levels (ALL Button)
  • Large Graphic Menu System with Multiple Custom Functions

The Pro transmitter now provides the option of working with up to 5 groups of lights – A / B / C / D / E, in a mixed Group Mode style environment, where TTL and Manual groups can be mixed together, and individual groups can easily be switched On and Off.

Unlike the Canon version Xpro-C transmitter though, TTL mode can only be selected in groups A, B, & C. Groups D & E are manual only.

There is also the option of controlling up to 16 Groups in Manual mode (A-F & 0-9), corresponding with the older XTR-16/s style radio receivers.

With dedicated individual group buttons, adjusting each group is now very simple, fast and intuitive.

And if you prefer the XT-32 style single group display, at the press of a button the Pro transmitter provides the option of switching back and forth from multiple group display, to a larger single group display showing more details.

TCM FUNCTION

 

Another significant feature now provided with the Pro transmitter is the new TCM function.

TCM stands for TLL – CONVERT – MANUAL.

This is Godox and Flashpoint’s version of Hybrid or Fusion TTL, where its now possible to take a shot in TTL mode to attain a correct exposure very quickly, and then at the press of a button convert those TTL power levels to display on the transmitter as Manual power levels.

The manual power levels can then be further refined, and provide consistent exposures for further shots in the same set up and environment.

The TCM function is potentially a huge advantage for people operating in a fast paced environment, allowing a base setting to be gained very quickly without manually metering lights. Switching to manual the individual power levels can then be refined as needed, and exposures remain constant for subsequent images.

 

Other features include a flash Zoom control screen, and a large graphic menu with custom functions –

The Pro transmitter provides similar range and reliability to the original R2 and XT transmitters, and also currently use the same AF assist light, and regular screw locking foot.

    The bug mentioned above by Ulysse and Chester is persistent in firmware 1.4 of an XProN: You can’t fire in HSS an old Wistro AD360 through an XTR16. It communicates all right for the FEC settings (you hear the beeps) but you can’t get a flash. Very annoying indeed, as I do HSS all the time. It’s a major drawback from the X1N which performs flawlessly in that domain. Moreover, I have a gut feeling that TTL in HSS on an AD600 is slightly underexposed in comparison with the X1N. Am I dreaming? It’s a pity, because the ergonomy is definitely better on the latest transmitter.
