GODOX – X1-N – TTL Triggers for Nikon – Now Available



Godox have released the Nikon X1-N, TTL and HSS enabled 2.4GHz radio trigger system for Nikon DSLRs.

The X1-N are Godox’s first TTL enabled radio triggers available for Nikon, and they have been released alongside the new TT685N Speedlite, with compatible radio transceiver built inside.

The X1-N transmitter can also be used to trigger and control Godox’s new AD600 TTL strobes, as well as the AD360 II Bare bulb flashes.

Its even now possible to control legacy remote manual Godox strobes via the X1-N transmitter, when using new XTR-16 receivers.


Godox X1-N


The X1-N triggers are comprised of separate transmitter and receiver units, with X1-N receivers being compatible with Nikon DSLR compatible speedlites like the Nikon SB-910, SB-900, SB700 etc.

As well as Nikon iTTL compatible flashes like Godox’s own V860N.




The X1-N provide a full group style interface allowing up to 5 groups to be individually set to either TTL, Manual, or Off.

And importantly TTL and Manual Groups can be conveniently mixed together as needed.




The X1-N provide TTL, HSS (High Speed Sync) and most of the features comparable popular TTL triggers provide, even a HSS Pre-sync Timing Adjustment.

Godox have even considered small (though important) details like PC Sync Input and Output, something most radio triggers constantly miss.

At the time of writing this the X1-N unfortunately do not provide Second Curtain Sync. Though that may change in time as the Canon version X1-C have now been updated through firmware to provide Second Curtain Sync.

A function to remotely turn the modelling light On and Off on strobes like the AD600B has also been added to the X1 transmitters.

Double pressing the Channel button will turn the modelling light ON or OFF.




After some persuasion and the help from Adorama / Flashpoint, Godox have implemented a static Page Mode interface option, which stops the groups from moving around on the transmitters LCD screen.

To engage the Page Mode interface hold the Channel button for 5 seconds, or until the groups show again on the LCD screen (after the custom functions disappear).

A flashing Group letter now indicates the current Group selected.

– Single press the Group button – To scroll down groups.
– Double press the Group button – To scroll up groups.
– Turn the Dial – To adjust the Group setting.
– Press the Channel button – To lock in the setting (will also lock in automatically after 2 seconds)


(Unfortunately this is still not quite as we suggested, which would be using the dial to quickly select groups. Though at least the groups are not constantly scrolling around on the LCD screen now).

Godox have also implemented Custom Function C.Fn-07, which allows the display of just 3 groups when you’re currently not using all 5.

This makes it faster to scroll through (by continually pressing the Group button) just 3 groups all displayed on the one page, to select the group you’re after.





The Godox X1-N TTL triggers for Nikon are available now from around $80 a set of Tx & Rx –

    I have XPro-N and X1R-N. I set my Nikon SB-800 on TTL-mode with the reciver.
    On the XPro in mode TTL it working excellent. But when I change the mode to M on the transmitter the SB on the reciver not responding on different M settings from my transmitter, only a tiny flash. IF I press the test flashbutton on the transmitter the SB-800 more corresponde to M settings, Why?

    XPro latest firmware 1,3. X1R latest firmware 2,0

    Hi, I’m writing to see if anyone can help me, I’ve just bought the Godox X1N T and R kit, and I would not like to be helped as it should be to work with a Nikon SB900.

    I have tried it in TTL and in Manual and I can not get the Transmitter to change the power in the SB900, I do not know if the screen of the SB900 should see the power change once it is done in the transmitter or I should not it is reflected in the flash but that the change of power is effective.

    In which modality I must place the Nikon SB900 so that I work with the Godox X1, at present the only thing the Goths do is activate the flash but they do not allow the power change.

    Could you help me

      Hi Indra,

      You will need to set the SB-900 to regular TTL mode, even when the transmitter is set for manual power levels (no master or slave modes set on the flash, just regular TTL mode).

      The manual power settings will not show on the speedlight because it is in TTL mode. Though the output of the flash should adjust to the manual power settings set on your transmitter.

      • Marc 4 years ago

        Thank you for the feedback, however that is still not working. The zoom works as well. And the power works if I press the flash button on the transmitter, however when I take a picture, it’s just the same faint flash every time.

        Any clarity would e much appreciated!

    • Steven Robinson 4 years ago

      Put the flash into TTL, the transmitter to manual and it’ll alter to what you set it.

    Hi. I have the X1Tn attached to my flash and the X1Rn attached to my camera hotshoe with a cable to my Nikon D700. I have been experimenting with off camera flash and wireless shutter release. Basically, the X1Tn fires my shutter ok, but the flash is not synched it seems and doesn’t fire at the same time as the shutter and therefore is ineffective and has no bearing on the image. Is there a solution to this. In other situations the flash works ok… eg. trigger on hotshoe of camera and flash on top and receiver in another part of the house with a flash on it. Any advice will be much appreciated. Cheers. Chris. I have a photo but there is no place to upload.

  4. Chris 4 years ago

    Just to clarify…. the flash fires when i click the transmitter button–before the shutter on the camera it seems. Also my shutter speeds are around well below 250. I’m sure there is something very obvious but I can seem to work it out.

  5. Jason 4 years ago

    Can X1T-N trigger/control a Fuji Specific flash (e.g. TT650 or TT350)? Can those flash (TT350 or TT650 for Fuji)detect the trigger and work on its signal? or do i have to buy a receiver to attach on the flash?

    • John Wilson 4 years ago

      Hi Jason!

      The Nikon trigger will work with those two Fuji specific flashes. In fact it will work with any current Godox flash. Any problems – check the firmware versions on all the devices.

  6. Chris 4 years ago

    Flash Havoc… are u able to provide an answer to my question please…… or anyone? Is what I’m trying to achieve possible? Would it be possible using the newer Xpro-N? Cheers

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 4 years ago

      Hi Chris,

      For shutter release you need to use a separate set of triggers to the flash system. So one set is acting as a dedicated shutter release, and the other as the flash triggers.

      You can use 2 sets of Godox X1 triggers to do both, but then you need to have one set of triggers on a different channel than the other set.

      Some other systems like Canon RT can actually do what you’re suggesting.

      The Xpro N will not help over the X1T-N for this.

      • John Wilson 4 years ago

        I’ve always found this a bit annoying. The trigger can obviously receive as well as send. The problem was that you used to have to use two channels because the strobes can’t tell the difference between the fire command for the camera release from the one that triggers the flash. This is no longer true. With Wireless ID you can have one value for the camera fire command and a different one for the strobe fire command so you don’t need two channels.

        It would appear to be a reasonably straightforward firmware modification to implement this. I wonder if Godox will do it?

  7. Chris 4 years ago

    Oh yes I see what you mean FH, thanks. More complicated than I thought it would be, I suppose the upside is that they are not expensive to buy if I go down that track. Cheers for clarifying that, I couldn’t work it out after many attempts. Chris

    Hi, I have the xpro-n and x1r-n with a sb-900. Like in other comments with sb-900 in normal TTL the manual remote control of power don’t work and the flash not synchronize. In TTL works correctly

  9. hashem 4 years ago

    HI there
    i have a really frustrating issue with the X1 trigger, and i hope i can find a solution through you,
    and here’s my story:
    i have purchased new setup from Godox ( 2 units of Wistro AD600B, and 3 units of Wistro AD200) and i’m using the X1 trigger to control all of the setup, and now i wanted to use my Nikon SB910 flash on top of my camera along with the AD200 backlit, so i placed it on top of the X1 trigger(in the show of X1 trigger), and the problem is, the flash is dimmed 4 or 5 stops, so even if i put the SB910 on Manual full power, it doesn’t reach anywhere near full power, it’s hardly 1/8 or 1/16 power, i tried so many things, no use..!!
    and now i really don’t know what to do, i want to keep my AD200, but it looks like i will not be able to use my Nikon SB910 flash on top of my camera with the trigger
    please advise.


    • Anjans 3 years ago

      Same problem. SB910 on top of transmitter is forced to be in TTL-BL and fires at 1/8 power. Cannot change it.
      Any solutions or fixes from Godox? Read the same issue on this forum from 2015. Its not a new issue. Please send a fix soon!!

      • Jay 3 years ago

        Anything put on top of the X1T will not get full TTL functionality. It is not a true TTL pass-through hotshoe. There is a new version about to come out, the Godox X2T Flash Trigger (Flashpoint R2T Mark ii) but I doubt it’ll have a true TTL hotshoe either.

    Excellent information – swayed my final decision, just bought 4 units to replace my current (now ancient) Yongnuo system.

    May i know how to turn off the standby mode on my godox x1t-c ?!

  12. Greg Waugh 3 years ago

    I have just purchased x pro n. Will not trigger sb 700. Do I need xr 1 as well?

  13. Pedro 3 years ago

    Anyone has issue with this transmitter and the Nikon Z6, camera lock in AF-C after using the transmitter for while

  14. Ivan Lim 3 years ago


    Has anyone encounter problem with the WB when the trigger is ON the hotshoe? The photo is very ORANGE.
    If i only use the speedlight on the hotshoe (NO Trigger), WB is OK.

  15. Leo 2 years ago

    Is it possible to control or trigger a godox ad200 using a Nikon sb900? At all when using the sb900 as a commander? Thanks

    • John Wilson 2 years ago

      You should be able to trigger it optically when the AD200 is in manual mode. You won’t be able to trigger it in TTL mode nor will you be able to control its settings.

  16. I recently purchased 5 Godox X1 R receivers and 5 Godox TT685 Flashes for my Nikon 750’s and I also purchased a Godox X1T for go on the hot shoe of the camera. My problem is that I expected to be able to adjust manual power levels in each of the flashes using the X1T. Turns out there is only 3 groups available in in the TT685 flash units so I can only adjust 3 of the strobes independently. Why are there 5 groups available in the receivers and transmitters and only 3 groups available in the TT685’s . Do I need to get different strobes that have 5 groups available?

  17. Anis 2 years ago

    I have Nikon Flash SB-910 and would like to buy Godox Flash TT685N 2.4G as a second flash for
    may Nikon Camera D800 Do I need to buy the Godox X1T-N trigger only so it can synchronize with
    both flashes or I have to buy also the X1R-N receiver for the SB-910 presumably the Godox Flash
    will not need the X1R-N.

    • John Wilson 2 years ago

      You need an X1T-N and and an X1R-N for the SB-910

  18. Marco 2 years ago

    I bought X1 R and T for Nikon,
    but on my Nikon SB-800 flash
    the Receiver leaves me the LCD lighting flash always on.
    I tried everything but it is always on ….
    a software update is planned
    to solve this or problma
    am I mistaken something that escapes me? someone help me?

  19. Nate 2 years ago

    Can I trigger HSS in a Yongnuo 685 or 986 with one of these receivers?

  20. John 2 years ago

    If you have your Godox/Flashpoint on camera flash such as the TT, V or whatever the newest one is, and use this wireless trigger on your Nikon camera’s hotshoe, will the AF focus assist beam still work on the flash as it does when not used wireless?

    When the flash heads are mounted on the hotshoe, the focus beam works as normal but when using the wireless trigger the beam doesn’t function even though I have cf06 on. The focus assist beam on the trigger/transmitter works but that isn’t the problem.

    Just curious since it works off camera with my TTL cord and would like to know if its normal not to with the transmitter. Thanks in advance,

  21. Charlie Janson 1 year ago

    I have exactly the same question as Bjorn from 2 years ago, which it appears was never answered… if the SB800 is not supported in TTL mode, then I will just return the X1R-N, as it does me no good to have the Nikon flash only in Manual power mode.
