GODOX – 2.4GHz Flash System Overview

GODOX FLASH SYSTEM

 

With the release of the recent 2.4GHz built-in radio strobes, Godox have been putting together one of the most comprehensive and popular radio flash systems currently available.

What’s attractive about the Godox ecosystem is not only the large range of well priced and innovative lights on offer, but also the complete compatibility throughout the system, from the cheapest remote manual speedlites, to the larger TTL cordless and AC powered studio strobes.

Another major feature is the intercompatibility between Canon, Nikon, Sony, M4/3 and Fuji systems. So all of the speedlites and strobes in the Godox 2.4GHz system now provide Auto Sensing radio slave modes for Canon, Nikon, Sony, M4/3, and Fuji .

This means you can use Canon, Nikon, Sony, M4/3, and Fuji version transmitter units, or master speedlites, with the same set of slave strobes and speedlites, and they will automatically switch to the corresponding slave mode as required. And this includes full TTL functionality where available.

This also means a photographer (or photographers) using Canon, Nikon, Sony, M4/3, and Fuji cameras can effectively share the same set of strobes at the same time.

 

GODOX FLASH SYSTEM

 

So Godox have been developing a very versatile and practical radio flash system, now attracting a large user base worldwide.

Its not all perfect though, and still a work in progress in areas. With a system of this scale already having so many components, there are a number of (generally minor) quirks and details needing refinement over time, through firmware updates etc.

Although having the innovative advantage of built-in Lithium-ion batteries, the current Godox master speedlites have been the main weak point in the system for many wedding and event photographers, who would really like to see an on-camera master speedlite with refined features more closely matching the performance of the original Canon and Nikon speedlites.

Off camera TTL performance with strobes like game changing AD600 / XPLOR have been solid and consistent since their first release. And the previous remote manual speedlites and bare bulb flashes have proven themselves to be solid workhorses over the last few years. The Godox radio system has also shown to be generally reliable with good range.

Note – The Godox 2.4GHz radio system is not directly compatible with Canon or Nikon’s radio systems.

 

GODOX 2.4GHz FLASH SYSTEM OVERVIEW

 

Godox now provide a broad range of strobes with 2.4GHz radio built inside, this provides numerous transmitter, master, and slave flash options.

All the current hotshoe flashes function as both radio master, and slave units in the Godox system –

 

 

GODOX SYSTEM OVERVIEW

 

 

And with the addition of clip on XTR-16/s radio receivers, a number of the popular legacy remote manual strobes can be combined as slave flash units in the 2.4GHz flash system (using the transmitter and master flash units shown above).

These include the –

And of course your original Canon, Nikon, and eventually Sony, TTL Speedlites can be combined in the system as well by mounting those on Godox X1R TTL receiver units.

 

ADORAMA FLASHPOINT R2 SYSTEM

 

In the USA Adorama also sell the Godox System under their Flashpoint branding, providing great support and helping to refine the system.

Adorama also have exclusive rights in the USA to sell the TTL version of the Godox AD600 cordless strobes, sold under the Flashpoint brand as the XPLOR 600 TTL.

The Flashpoint equipment is fully compatible with the original Godox branded gear, and Flashpoint provide up to 2 year full USA warranty.

UPDATE – Adorama now also sell Godox branded products not listed under the Flashpoint branding.

CURRENT 2.4GHz TRANSMITTER UNITS

 

Godox currently produce 4 transmitter units for their 2.4GHz radio flash system.

  • XPro – TTL / HSS / Remote Manual
  • X1T – TTL / HSS / Remote Manual
  • XT32 – HSS / Remote Manual
  • XT16 – Remote Manual

GODOX FLASH SYSTEMThe XPro, XT32, and XT16, transmitters also provide control for 16 Groups in Manual mode, where the X1T currently provide up to 5 Groups at most.

So you can choose the transmitter units which best suit your needs and budget.

 

MASTER FLASH UNITS

 

Currently all of the Godox hotshoe flashes with 2.4GHz X radio system built-in, also provide both radio master and slave modes.

So they can all act as a master / transmitter unit on-camera to the rest of the 2.4GHz flash system as well.

 

There are some differences between the Canon, Nikon, and Sony master units functionality, due to the way their various native TTL systems operate.

For example the Nikon Master interface only provides for 3 TTL or remote manual groups, so Godox have allowed 2 more groups to at least be used in remote manual.

The Canon Master interface provides a GR Group style interface with 5 TTL or remote manual groups, though pre 2012 cameras can still only access 3 groups.

The Sony Master interface currently only provides the 3 TTL or remote manual slave groups. (Which should really be expanded with 2 more remote manual groups).

 

CANON – NIKON –  SONY – M4/3 – FUJI – INTERCOMPATIBILITY

 

Unlike the hotshoe mountable flashes above, larger strobes like the TTL enabled AD600B, and AD200 do not provide any radio master mode (as they can not be mounted on the camera hotshoe anyway).

Where this becomes interesting though, is that the AD600B and AD200 etc, provide auto switching TTL radio slave modes for Canon, Nikon, Sony, M4/3, and Fuji.

So the strobe automatically detects the signal and settings provided from an X1T-C, X1T-N, X1T-S, or X1T-O transmitter, mounted on a respective Canon, Nikon, or Sony camera’s hotshoe (as soon as you release the cameras shutter).

This means a photographer, or photographers, using Canon, Nikon, Sony, M4/3, and Fuji cameras can effectively share the same set of strobes at the same time.

And Godox 2.4GHz TTL enabled master hotshoe flashes can be used in the same way as the transmitter unit on camera as well.

 

GODOX FLASH SYSTEM

 

And all of the Godox TTL speedlites / hotshoe flashes now provide the same auto switching TTL radio slave modes for Canon, Nikon, Sony, M4/3, and Fuji.

 

 

NOTE – X1T transmitters units may not currently provide TTL with alternate version X1R receivers (with TTL speedlite mounted on receiver hotshoe).

 

SYSTEM SCALABILITY

 

Particularity for people starting out in off camera lighting, the scalability of Godox system offers a very practical option to get started with.

This is because the Godox remote manual flashes are compatible (in remote manual, and HSS use) with Godox’s more advanced TTL gear, as well as their broad range of larger TTL and manual strobes.

This means you can start with some inexpensive remote manual speedlites like the Godox TT600, (which are basically the Godox equivalent of the popular YongNuo YN560 IV), and easily expand your kit with numerous other compatible Godox flash options later.

With YongNuo their remote manual and TTL systems have limited intercompatibility. And a lot of people get caught out with that after a short time when they want to start experimenting with HSS and TTL, and try to expand their kit.

With a HSS enabled Godox transmitter like the XT32, the TT600 speedlites (and many of the other Godox remote manual strobes) already include a HSS mode as well. (Where HSS is only available with the TTL gear from YongNuo).

(Note – Remote flash head zoom is currently limited in the Godox system though, compared to YongNuo’s functions).

 

 

PREVIOUS 433MHz RADIO SYSTEM

 

A quick history for people unfamiliar with the Godox system. A few years ago Godox released their first 433MHz frequency FT-16 remote manual radio system, to be used with the various remote manual strobes mentioned above.

Godox knew this system would need to evolve quite a bit in a relatively short time. And fortunately for many previous customers Godox designed the radio receivers as small external clip on units, which could then be easily upgraded to a new radio system later on.

So Godox now provide 2.4GHz XT16 versions of the original 433MHz FT-16 transmitter and receivers.

And its these XTR16 and XTR16s receivers which link the legacy remote manual flashes to the new Godox 2.4GHz X radio flash system as detailed above.

(The original 433MHz FT-16 transmitter and receivers are still available, though you can imagine they will probably be phased out eventually as demand diminishes).

 

GODOX FLASH SYSTEM

 

As well as remote manual power control, a number of the legacy Godox strobes like the popular AD360 also provide a HSS mode.

The FT-16 transmitter being a universal single firing pin unit though, cannot provide the early fire signal needed for HSS to function.

So with the 433MHz radio system a second Cells II transmitter was also needed to be mounted on the camera, while the FT-16 transmitter could be held in hand just for remote power control with the strobes.

With the current 2.4GHz system, the XT32 (and now also Xpro) transmitters, basically combine the XT-16 and Cells II into one more convenient transmitter unit.

QT600/II-M are Remote Manual, AC powered studio lights, with IGBT power control providing short flash durations suitable for freezing motion.

The QT600IIM don not provide TTL, though they do proivde HSS (High Speed Sync) when used with a suitably enabled transmitter or master flash.

A dual mode can prioritize between short flash durations for freezing motion, or higher color consistency across the power range.

In radio slave mode the QT600IIM can function with the various manual power scales available through the XT-32 transmitter. So they can be used alongside legacy Godox studio strobes which use a number of different power scales.

The QT600IIM also provide the full 16 radio slave groups provided by the XT-32 and XT-16 transmitter units.

Basic S1 and S2 Optic slave modes are also provided.

The QTIIM strobes are available in 110V and 220V versions.

    Is the Godox gear the best overall solution for Fuji (once released) for off camera flash? I have Yongnuo (622Tx/Rx and 685s) for my Canon 5d3 setup and can use the 622Tx as long as 622Rx units are under the YN-685s, without the 622 under the 685 the 685 will lockup.

    Could I get a X1TC for my Canon and a X1TF for Fuji and fire one common set of lights?

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 7 months ago

      Hi Jamesy,

      At this stage yes, the Godox system would be the main option, and once all available and functioning you could use a Canon and Fuji version Godox transmitter to control the one common set of lights (and lots of lights to choose from).

      I would expect the Fuji X1 (or very possibly X2 at this stage) transmitter will come last though, so you will likely have to make do with the TT350F speedlite as master instead for some time yet.

      In the mean time other manufacturers may well be working on Fuji compatibility as well, and if you’re mainly only after speedlites at this stage, then Nissin are likely going to be the main alternative, with their Air 10s transmitter expected in July.

      There will be more companies on board with Fuji by the end of the year, though Godox have the largest range of lights available if that’s of interest. Who actually performs the best with compatibility etc we will have to wait and see.

      Regarding your YN685, I’m not sure what’s happening there, I assume you mean that’s locking up when using the YN-622C-TX on the Fuji camera?

      • Neil 4 months ago

        I have the TT350F and an AD200. The TT350F does not work in TTL mode when controlled by my X1T-C. Only the AD200 seems to have working TTL with both the Fuji and Canon cameras. I have upgraded the firmware of the AD200, X1T-C, but cannot find any later firmware for the TT350 series.

  2. Jamesy 6 months ago

    Elvis, Thanks for the reply.

    The Godox system seems very interesting indeed and I have been looking at the Nissin kit as well but they are pretty pricey units, although they sound very reliable from what I have read.

    Side note, I just bought the Phottix 28″ Multi-boom you designed – I already own the 16″. The 28″ is outstanding.

    The YN-685 locks up when triggered with the 622-Tx, yes. I bought my son a similar setup for his Fuji X-T1 this past Christmas and while his does not lockup, he can’t get channels to shut-off. I updated my firmware on the trigger to the latest version to no avail and will do his this week when we get together.

    He shoots weddings and the Godox or Nissin are starting to look very compelling – leaning towards the Godox system.

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 6 months ago

      Thanks Jamesy.

      Yes the pricing is obviously why Godox has been so successful. The problem with that is they are just picking off the low hanging fruit when it comes to the on-camera / master flash side of things, or refining details, which can be a problem at this stage for wedding photographers (trying to have one integrated system at least).

      Nissin are bound to be moving into larger strobes eventually, and that’s where their pricing may not be as far off (as we have seen with strobes like the SMDV BRiHT-360). Its going to take some time to see how this all plays out though, and others will likely join in with Fuji compatibility by then as well.

  3. Brian 6 months ago

    I have just ordered a Godox TT360o for micro four thirds (finally). I mainly do studio work and obviously the little TT360 has it’s limitations. I was also reviewing the Cactus system and I’m intrigued with their claim of interoperability. In some reviews of the Godox system they suggest that the same is true with the Godox system as long as you use the appropriate receiver for the secondary flashes. i.e. using my Olympus with an X1 (or X2) on Camera I can control my off camera TT360 directly and with the appropriate X1 attached to a Canon flash (600EX-RT) all would work including TTL and HSS. Am I reading this wrong or is this the case?

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 6 months ago

      Hi Brian,

      I would think that is the eventual intention. Though having said that I’m not sure if Godox has officially stated that, and from what we have seen the receivers have been the lowest priority at this stage as they are still busy getting their own lights all linked up and working correctly across systems.

      And when you can buy flashes like the TT685 so inexpensively with receiver already built in, the separate receivers haven’t been a big issue.

      Cactus don’t have much in the way of their own lights at this stage so they have been more focused on making original flashes work with their receivers. Built in radio is where the biggest demand is at this stage though.

      • Brian 6 months ago

        Okay, so presumably Godox will introduce the TT685 for the Olympus standard, which would make a separate receiver redundant,
        Does their interoperability mean that you could add an X1-Ro for Olympus to a TT685 or other strobe meant for Canon or Nikon and it would work from an X1-To on the camera?
        Of course, having Olympus versions of all their strobes would be the ultimate. I suppose I should include Fuji to the list to placate my son’s system preference!

        • Author
          Flash Havoc 6 months ago

          You wouldn’t need to add an external receiver the flash. I’m not sure how long it will take, though Godox will add Olympus and Fuji radio receiver modes to all their TTL flashes via firmware update. So they will all have auto switching Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, and Fuji radio slave modes built-into the one flash. (They already have Canon, Nikon, and Sony installed).

          There has been some talk of the updates to come at the end of July, though I don’t know how accurate that is.

          So you can imagine down the track once they have had time to resolve their own lights, they will work on receivers and cross compatibility between those as well. At this stage though they haven’t even released a receiver for Sony at all yet.

          At the least though, remote manual power control should work across X1 receivers from different camera systems from the time of release.

          • Brian 6 months ago

            Thank you, that clears things up considerably. I feel confident that I can invest in their product line. My assumption was that you had to buy the specific strobe model to match the camera manufacturer you were using.

            • Author
              Flash Havoc 6 months ago

              No worries, you only need the strobe to match the camera manufacturer for on-camera use in TTL or HSS etc.

    Hi Flash,

    Is it true that the new Godox X2 transmitter is coming this July?

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 6 months ago

      Hi Zoltan,

      Anything is possible, though I would think that’s unlikely. We haven’t seen the first working sample of the Flashpoint version yet, so unless Godox have pushed ahead with the Godox version I wouldn’t think its likely to be available in the next month.

  5. Kathy 6 months ago

    Dunno if you feel like updating just for this, but Adorama’s listing the X1T-O, TT685-O, TT685-F, V860II-O, and V860II-F up for pre-order. And they just posted AD200 v2.0 firmware which should make it compatible with the -O and -F transmitters (as well as the LED head). They also updated the G1 software to G2.

    • Kathy 6 months ago

      p.s. they also listed the X1R-O as “in development”, and updated the X1R-S listing to say it’s coming “mid-2017”. And Godox also issued a v20 update for the X1T-N and v18 update to the X1R-N to fix SB-910/SB-5000 compatibility.

      Flash Havoc 6 months ago

      Hi Regis,

      I updated all the firmware and checked this again, and remote manual power control and HSS appear to be working fine.

      TTL is not working with the Canon transmitter, and not really with Sony either. With Sony there does appear to be some TTL happening, though not correct exposures, or FEC adjustments etc.

      So I would say at this stage Godox were still just aiming at remote manual and HSS compatibility.

      • Régis Corbet 6 months ago

        Thank you very much for that very detailed reply. TTL is not particularly important for me, so I can go for Godox X1 system!

    Hi, if I use a x1r-c with a yn600ex-rt on it, can I get iTTL and HSS with a x1r-n on a nikon camera?

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 5 months ago

      Hi Benson,

      With the YN600EX-RT, remote manual appears to be working, though no TTL or HSS.

      I tried the Canon 600EX-RT at the same time and remote manual and TTL appears to work with that, though no HSS in manual or TTL.

      I’m not sure if the YN600EX-RT II may be any more compatible or not.

      And all the firmware keeps changing so this is likely a fluid situation.

      As long as you have a transmitter like the X1 which provides Mulit mode, then you should be right to use Multi mode off camera.

      Hi Regis,

      That’s an interesting thought. And I guess there’s a lot of things you could do in the future, though I would hope they would do some other things as a priority first.

      We had been harassing YongNuo years ago just to do a bare bulb speedlite at least. And that whole area never really eventuated, though hopefully the AD200 will have a lot of companies exploring different possibilities now.

    UPDATE – HSS with FUJI / M4/3 and Manual Godox Strobes Not Working

    There appears to be an issue emerging, where HSS will not work using the Fuji or Olympus / Panasonic TT350F / TT350O master flashes with MANUAL strobes like the TT685, V850II, and original AD180 / AD360 using the XTR-16 clip in receivers (and likely the original V850 then as well).

    The flashes simply won’t fire once the camera shutter is set over X-sync.

    None of these flashes have USB ports for firmware updates, so this is a bit of a concern. I don’t know if Godox are able (or have intention of) fixing this from the transmitter end.

    • Alex 3 months ago

      I just ordered a set of the XTR-16’s and the X1t transmitter, the idea being to upgrade my V850 to finally be able to provide HSS. I guess I’ll find out for sure in the morning regardless but has there been any development about this? I emailed “Gwen” a contact I had about batteries at Godox but apparently she is no longer with the company, emails to the tech support account have gone unanswered.

      • Alex 3 months ago

        Just an Update.

        The Ving 850 (gen 1), xtr-16 receiver, and X1T-O will provide HSS functionality on the GX8 as well as the EM-5 mkI. the Ving 850 has to be put in HSS mode by pressing the MF/H button until the HS symbol comes up. EM-5 showed almost no banding up to 1/4000 (max shutter) the GX8 shows minimal banding at the top of the frame up to 1/8000.

    I use Fuji XT-2 cameras. If I want to get the AD360II, does it matter which version I buy (Nikon or Canon)? And: should I possibly wait for a potential Fuji Version of the AD3600II?

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 5 months ago

      Hi Jacob,

      That’s an interesting question. I don’t think it would make any difference which version you get, if its only for Fuji use.

      I really don’t know if Godox have any intention of eventually making Fuji or M4/3 version AD360II. I think the main reason for not doing the Sony version was due to the weaker Sony hotshoe design.

      Personally I think the current AD360II will fast become a thing of the past now that the AD200 are available. They are only 0.3 to 0.5 stops behind in output and considerably more compact and convenient.

      So in that regard I’d personally be surprised if Godox are wanting to develop the current AD360II any further. IMO the really need to get moving on a cordless AD360.

    HI!
    We are having problems with a multiple shooter setup for weddings:
    2 x X1T-N (or 860ii N) controlling 4 to 5 AD200s in TTL.

    -1st Problem: only 3 groups on the Master Speedlight 860ii N … why not at least 3 groups in TTL and 2 more in manual as the X1t-N does?

    -2nd Problem: We absolutely dont understand the way 2 or more master units (X1t or 860ii) are supposed to work together for multiple shooters at events sharing the same lights. If I have a certain light configuration adjusted on my master unit and my partner changes the parameters the system goes crazy and adopts the changed settings of my partner + turning on the flashes that are active on my unit.

    Does anybody know if we are doing something wrong here? All firmware is up to date.

    Kind regards from sunny Spain.

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 5 months ago

      Hi Manuel,

      The multible shooter thing is a bit confusing at the moment. Godox have added a C.Fn-09 to the X1T-N which if turned ON updates the slave strobe settings before each shot. So give they a try if you haven’t already.

      The V860II-C does not currently have this custom function option though, so I assume the V860II-N doesn’t either? So you have to press the test fire button (or adjust settings) to update the slave flash before taking a shot.

      With C.Fn-09 turned off on the X1T-N you should also need to press the test fire button (or adjust settings) to update the slave flash before taking a shot.
      .

      Regarding the V860II-N and only having 3 groups. I know that’s frustrating. I have no idea why Godox are not trying to standardize this to 5 Groups. At the very least all the flashes could provide 5 slave groups as standard, but Godox have been making many of the speedlites 3 groups.

      I can only suggest people email them – godox@godox.com and let them know 5 groups as standard would make more sense.

      • Manuel 5 months ago

        HI!
        c.fn 09 was added in the latest update and i have overlooked it. Thank you so much for the info. Now they just need to add it to their master flash.
        Kind regards,
        Manuel

      Did I miss an announcement somewhere on that A1 Smart Phone Remote Transmitter? What is it?

      • Author

        Hi Mark,

        No, the official release is apparently not until August 12th. I’m not sure if the A1 was intentionally leaked early or not. I think the GodoxPhoto app is available already.

        The A1 is a device which allows you to control the Godox 2.4GHz X system through a smartphone app.

        It also allows you to use the phone as camera though, with the X system slave strobes, or even the A1 as a slave strobe itself.

        I think shutter speeds will be pretty limited though using the phone as the camera.

  17. John Wilson 5 months ago

    I wonder how the camera communicates with it. Bluetooth I hope.

    I’m not very interested in this particular product but a trigger which is controllable via Bluetooth opens up very interesting possibilities. Especially if the control protocol is documented and published.

    hi there!
    for beginner in learning flash, how many and which flash are recommended?
    will be learning to use umbrella and soft boxes for product and portrait photography.

    doubt will venture beyond flash units though.

    currently have tt350.

    would two or three flashes the optimal setup?
    i’m thinking, most likely need the x1 for on camera trigger, off camera flashes.

    should i mix and match with tt600 and tt685 for the additional flashes for three flash setup and a little cost saving? or two 685?
    should i just sell the 350 and get 600 or 685 in its place instead?

    thank you so much!

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 5 months ago

      Hi Kyra,

      There are probably a dozen different ways to go with this so I’m not even sure what the most helpful answer would be at this stage.

      Regarding the TT600 and TT685, the difference is TTL capability, and main reasons TTL can be very helpful is if the subject is constantly moving (distance in relation to the lights), or if you have no time to set up exposure levels manually. Otherwise for product photography etc manual is generally better because the exposures will remain consistent from shot to shot.

      For product photography 3 or 4, or even more separate light sources can be helpful, and even with portraits etc as well. Though in the olden days (just a few years ago) when cheap strobes were pretty risky, the best advice was often to just start with one good strobe, and a reflector panel. A few lights will allow you to quickly experiment with more different set ups though.

      It sound like these may be out of your budget, though I would say the AD200 / EVOLV would currently be the best all round strobe to learn with, becasue they provide all the options, Fresnel head, bare bulb, HSS, TTL, enough power to be useful outdoors, and even a decent modelling light when teamed with the twin head bracket.

      So that is something I would still consider if you’re intending to stay in this longer term and build a nice system, though thats totally up to what you want to do and your budget etc. You can do a lot of good things with a few inexpensive manual TT600 as well.

      • Kyra 5 months ago

        Thank you so much!

        Sounds like the first step would be a couple of TT600 for the time being.
        Would the TT350 to small to use with diffuser/soft box?

        • John Wilson 5 months ago

          If you have two TT600 you can use your TT350 as the trigger/controller on the camera so you don’t have to buy an X1 trigger initially. Just set your TT350 not to fire and you’re good to go.

          Add a couple of lighting stands and Godox S-type Speedlite Brackets and you can use pretty much any sort of light modifier you like. Though I’d start with umbrellas I think (Google clamshell lighting too).

    can Godox X1T-S TTL use with pixel X800c flash

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 4 months ago

      Hi Nor Azelan,

      The Pixel and Godox radio systems are not directly compatible, so at best you would need to mount the X800c on top of a Godox X1R-C radio receiver.

      And then its likely there may be some compatibility issues both with mixing the Pixel flash and Godox radio receiver, though also with mixing the Sony version Godox transmitter with the Canon version Godox receiver.

      So in short you would be better off just getting a Godox TT685 or V860II speedlite (for Sony or Canon) for full compatibility with the X1T-S transmitter.

    I recently had the opportunity to operate all of my Godox units including a speed light in one session. You can see that session here:

    Looks like the new Godox XPro (aka XT2) has leaked. It looks fantastic: http://www.diyphotography.net/leaked-godox-xpro-trigger-photo-teases-huge-lcd-interface-lots-buttons/

    One of the re-branding sellers explains the XT16, XTR16(S) and the receiver of the FC16 are all compatible. But at least, the original FC16 is NOT compatible to the Godox ‘X’ system.

    I tried all channel combination with 2 sets of the FC16. The result is, the transmitter of FC16 cannot triggers the TT6xx or studio flash, and the receiver of FC16 cannot triggered by the XT32. lol

    I can’t understand why they aren’t making simple standalone version of the XTR16 for legacy or other manufacturer’s flash. In fact the X1R is cheap enough than other major brands’ receiver but not so cheap if someone has to buy them some pcs. For that purpose, there’s no need to more function than FC16.

    So, I’m ordering some pcs of X1R now. 🙁

      Hi Rizal,

      No the FTR-16 are 433MHz. You will need the XTR-16/s receivers to work with the 2.4GHz X1T transmitter and radio system.

      Hi Jaime,

      You will need the X1R-C receiver there for your Canon Speedlite.

      I’m not sure where they are up to with now with TTL and HSS working across camera platforms when it comes to the X1R receivers though. Remote manual power control should at least work though.

    triggering Godox AD200 with a Canon ST-E3-RT ? I want to include a Godox AD200 or (AD360IIC) into my setup of 3 Canon 600EX-RT Flashes. Can I simply trigger the Godox Flashes with my Transmitter Canon ST-E3-RT or the Yongnuo YN-E3-RT ?
    Or do I need a X-1 transmitter? And if – will it trigger my Canon 600EX-RT flashes?

      Hi Martin!

      If you just want to trigger the flashes you can just use the optical slave function.

      However you probably want to also configure the flashes remotely and use HSS/TTL. In this case you need a Godox trigger on the camera. I think you could use an X1T-C with the ST-E3-RT stacked on top of it. I think you would find that pretty annoying to use in practice. It’s probably better to use an X1T-C (or the new XPro-C) on the camera and an X1R-C for each of you Canon flashes. Personally I think the best bet would be to sell the 600EX-RT flashes and buy TT685 or V860II flashes. You’d probably end up with cash left over (Three X1R-C cost almost exactly the same as one TT685) .

    I have compatibility issues with Nikon SB-800 speedlight and Godox X1R-N/X1T-N mounted on Nikon D600. All Godox firmware has been updated, no problems Nikon SB-700 or Godox TT350o. Most intriguing is that all is working well with X1T-O mounted on my OM-D camera. Does anyone having the same difficulties?

      Hi Régis,

      By compatibility issues do you mean the flash will only fire up to around 1/4 power? If so there appears to be a bug with the X1T/R-N, please see the recent discussion here.

        The flash fire, but not during the exposure time. All controls seems to work including modeling light, but the main triggering signal comes too early I think
