The X1T where Godox’s first TTL enabled transmitter unit, and although quite capable, suffer from a fiddly user interface with limited buttons.

The Xpro listed above provide a big improvement, though the X1T do provide a hotshoe on top which can be useful for mounting additional transmitter units.

With pre 2012 Canon cameras there is no GR group mode available, so again the Xpro provide a much more convenient option in that case.

The XT32 transmitters were originally released as an improved option over the XT16 listed below, now combining a HSS function, and larger improved user interface and LCD display.

Only Canon and Nikon versions of the XT32 were released though, as the fully featured Xpro transmitter’s development and release became Godox’s priority.

Unlike the Xpro and X1T transmitters listed above, the XT32, and XT16 listed below, provide alternate power scales for use with older legacy mark one Godox studio lights.

The X1R receivers were originally released alongside the X1T transmitter, as TTL and HSS enabled transmitter and receiver set.

Though the X1R are also currently the only receivers available in the Godox 2.4GHz system for firing non-Godox studio lights (attached via a sync cord).

Currently there are only Canon, Nikon, and Sony X1R receiver versions available. Though any of the Godox 2.4GHz transmitters or master flashes will fire any X1R receiver version.

For Speedlight use the X1R receivers will provide full TTL and HSS when using compatible, Canon, Nikon, and Sony, speedlites mounted on the receivers hotshoe.

In this case cross platform support is generally limited so far, usually to firing the flash, and possibly remote manual power control.

The X1R receivers have tended to be a lower priority in the system, and even when using corresponding brand genuine speedlites there have been quirks which come and go with firmware changes etc.

So it can be preferable to actually consider inexpensive Godox speedlites rather than buying X1R receivers for your current speedlites (particularly if they are third party). As Godox speedlites like the TT685 do not cost that much more than the X1R receivers, and work seamlessly in the system, even across brands.

GODOX XTR16 / XTR16s

FLASHPOINT BRIDGE R2 / ZL RECEIVER

 

Dedication  N/A

Price – From $15

Available – Now

Overview – XTR16 / XTR16s

MODES – Remote Manual / Off

TTL – NO

HSS – NO

 

GROUP CONTROL –

  • 16 Groups – A / B / C / D / E / F, and 0 – 9

OTHER FEATURES  –

  • Remote Manual Power Control
  • Modelling Lamp or AF Assist Light On / Off
  • Beep On / Off
  • 16 Channels
  • Range – 100M+

 

XTR16 and XTR16s receivers provide a link between previous legacy Godox remote manual flashes not having a radio receiver built inside, to the new 2.4GHz X radio flash system.

The XTR16/s receivers connect directly to a dedicated communication port provided in the side of the flash, and are powered directly via the flash. So they can not be connected to non Godox strobes.

The XTR16/s provide 16 groups, as well as 16 channels. And remote manual power control is possible, as well the ability to turn a modelling light (or AF assist light), and Beep function, On and Off remotely.

XTR16s receivers connect with V850 / V860 Speedlites.

And XTR16 receivers connect with AD180 / AD360 Bare Bulb Flashes, AR400 Ring Flash, and the RS600P Battery Strobe. Along with a number of Godox AC Powered Studio Lights.

NOTE – A number of the Godox mark one AC powered studio lights use different power scales which are no longer supported by current transmitters like the Xpro. So its generally better to go with Mark II lights (with 2.4GHz radio receiver built-in) where possible.

Many of the current Godox strobes and speedlites do still provide the XTR16/s compatible communication port. And the XTR16/s receivers can be used with those to provide 16 remote manual groups, where the strobe alone only may only provide 5 groups or less.
