GODOX – XT16 – 2.4GHz Transmitter & Receivers Released

Godox XT16

 

Godox have released 2.4GHz versions of their previous (433MHz) FT-16 radio trigger set, in the new XT16 transmitter, and clip on XTR16, and XTR16s receivers.

The remote manual XT16 transmitters and receivers are basically the same on the outside as the previous FT-16 units, only the internals have been updated to Godox’s new 2.4GHz X radio system.

Most significantly though, the new XTR16 and XTR16s receivers now bridge the gap between the popular remote manual flash units like the AD360 bare bulb flashes, and V850 speedlites, and Godox’s latest X series TTL trigger system (and radio enabled master flash units).

X series transmitter units like the X1-C and X1-N will now fire and control remote manual power levels of AD360 and V850 flash units (with corresponding XTR16 and XTR16s clipped to the side of the flashes).

Radio enabled master flash units like the Godox TT685C / TT685N should also provide similar control when used as the transmitter unit on camera.

Godox have provided samples of the XTR16 and XTR16s receivers, and via the X1-C transmitter I am able to control the remote manual power levels of AD360 and V850 strobes, while also using the new AD600B in TTL mode (or remote manual mode) at the same time.

And all providing HSS if desired. (HSS mode must be switched on manually on the AD360 and V850 etc).

All 5 groups (A / B / C / D / E) of the X1-C and X1-N transmitter units work, and correspond with the groups set on the XTR16 and XTR16s receiver group dials.

Groups can also be turned on and off individually from the X1-C transmitter.

(Please note though – mixing TTL and Remote Manual groups, and turning groups on and off individually, requires 2012 onward camera bodies when using the X1-C transmitter for Canon).

The XTR16 receivers are also compatible with Godox’s large range of AC mains powered studio lights like the QT600, GT, GS, DE, etc.

Though with the AC powered studio lights remote manual power control is not likely to be possible through the X1-C and X1-N transmitter units (due to the different power scale used). A separate XT16 transmitter could be used as a hand held remote for power control though.

    Hello everybody!
    I have a question. I would like to know if the XT16 trasmiter works fine with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80.
    I want to buy 2 sk400ii flashes and they come with the XT16 transmiter and the XTR16 receiver. Can I use them with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 ?

    If not is there any other transmiter which is compatible with panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 ??

    Thank you very much!

      The XT16 will work with your camera.

      Are you sure that you are buying SK400 Mk II strobes? The Mk II should not need XTR16 receivers as the 2.4 GHz radio receiver is built in. I suspect you are being offered Mk I lights.

    Hi. Please does the Godox SK300 Mark 1 come with in built 2.4ghz receiver? If not, will it work fully with the X1-N?
    Thanks

      Hi Ferdinand,

      No only the MK II models have the built-in 2.4GHz radio.

      So at best you would need the XT-16R receiver attached to the strobe, and you may need to use an XT-16 transmitter, as the X1T-N transmitter may not have the same power scale available as the flash uses.

      If you don’t own the SK300 Mark 1 strobe yet its really best to avoid it and get a MarK II model.

        Hi.
        Thanks for the info. I would probably sell off my mark 1

    Hey i was wondering if i bought the xtr-16 could it allow me to use the hss on the flashpoint ad400 ring li-on with my x1t-s trigger. it has a hsss mode but i have no one on youtube using it.

    • John Wilson 4 months ago

      It’s worth a try. You need to manually enable HSS on the AR400 as you do with the AD360. If the flash is on the camera you need the X1T needs to be in short range mode.

    I have the following flash units:
    Four Godox V 860C units (NOT the 860II)
    One Flashpoint 600B flash

    I would like to upgrade my remote triggering. I currently have the YN 622C system, but the extra device on the flash hotshoe mount makes for a cumbersome combination.

    I am considering the new FLASHPOINT R2-T Mark II / GODOX X2T TTL Transmitter, and would like to combine it with the 2.4GHz XTR16 receivers to plug into the side of the 860’s However, what receiver options do I have for control of the Flashpoint 600B?

      Hi Gordon,

      There are no receivers available which can control the RL-600B, only to fire it.

      So you could mount the Rovelight transmitter on top of the R2-T Mark II transmitter, and have remote control of both lights from the camera.

      Or use an X1R (R2 Receiver) attached to the RL-600B via PC sync cord, simply to fire the RL-600B. And use the Rovelight transmitter in hand to control the RL-600B’s power levels.

    Follow up . . . I have four GODOX V860’s. I wanted to control each with a Godox XTR16S. I purchased a new Godox X2T transmitter. I can get the channels synced up just fine, but the flash fires no matter what group I set on the XTR16S. I turn off all groups on the X2T controller and the flash still fires. I cannot find any information on the XTR16s (it just came in a small box, no documentation).

    So, what am I missing? Why can I not control TTL to Manual, or power level, or group? If I set the flashes manually, I can fire them OK, but when I set individual groups off or on with the X2T transmitter, it has no effect on the flashes, they fire regardless. Also, I cannot change the power settings of the flashes from the X2T. I am using a 5DII, and I have tried setting camera menu setting to both E-TTL and MANUAL. I am beginning to think the XTR16S in not compatable with the X2T. Is this possible? Is there any firmware updates that may be required (or even possible) for the XTR16S?

      Hi Gordon,

      It is possible there could be compatibility bugs with the new X2T transmitter. In that past that has generally been the issue of Groups not turning OFF remotely (which Godox generally rectify through the transmitter firmware).

      Though if the flash is firing but has no remote control, that is usually because the dial on the XTR16s receiver has not been set properly on a particular Group. So check your dial position carefully because its easy to have it set slightly in between Groups.

    Can i use Godox X2T with a ad360 using xtr-16 as receiver?
