GODOX – XT32 – Remote Manual & HSS Transmitter – Now Available



Godox have announced a new XT32, remote manual and HSS enabled radio transmitter unit, compatible with the 2.4GHz Godox X radio system.

The XT32 provide an upgraded, HSS, and AF Assist Light enabled, alternative to the previous FT-16 and recent XT-16 transmitter units (though not completely replacing them).

Although available in dedicated Canon and Nikon versions, the XT32 do not provide any TTL functions, only remote manual and HSS.

Though Second Curtain Sync is also possible if selected via the camera.




The semi upright XT32 transmitter case houses 2 regular AA batteries.

And an AF assist light is now available when the transmitter is used on the corresponding Canon and Nikon camera hotshoes.




The XT32 are directly compatible with all of the new generation of Godox strobes providing 2.4GHz X system radio receivers built inside.

(Though they are ideally suited to the strobes only providing remote manual and HSS, as the XT32 do not provide any TTL functions).




As well as being compatible with the previous remote manual and HSS enabled Godox strobes which accept the XTR-16 and XTR-16s clip on radio receiver units.

The XT32 transmitter also provides the corresponding 16 Groups ( A – F & 0 – 9), and 32 Channels.






  • Godox 2.4GHz X Radio System
  • Range – 100m +
  • Flash Modes –  Manual / OFF
  • HSS to 1/8000th
  • Second Curtain Sync (When Set Via the Camera)

  • Sound Prompt Control
  • Lock Function
  • Sleep Function
  • Battery Level Indicator

Located on the let side is a PC Sync port (input from a camera), and micro USB port for firmware updates.

And on the right side, the main On – Off switch, and AF assist light On – Off switch.

Godox – Flash System Overview


  1. Pablo 4 years ago

    Hope someone can help on this..
    I purchased a XT-32C Godox transmitter a few weeks ago, at the beginning it was working as expected (used a couple of times with a Canon 6D and Fuji XT1 also -manual flash power- ) and a pair of godox AD200 , but now the issue with this unit is it start performing very inconsistent , sometimes work sometimes don’t, (lately is not working at all ) I been trying to figure out what is the problem but no luck,please see below detail of what this unit is doing (as today) in both cameras
    *.- Trigger XT32C (unmounted to camera), test button works (flashes AD200 fire ok) everything else working as expected as well ( Flash power output control, beep sound, etc)
    *.- Trigeer XT32C (Mounted in hotshoe of camera 6D or XT1) Test button works -flashes fire ok -, AF assistant beam works (red light),etc , but when you click the shutter in order to take the photo, it just simple don’t fire the flashes … , info of the photo (6D) shows the flash icon (flash fired) but flashes AD200 are did not fire

    I read and followed all instructions of godox instructions book, but nothing is working .. I search in google but no success , I assume there is a simple solution in this issue like , reset trigger, or something with the firmware, I would like to solve this and avoid all the return process

    thanks in advance for your support

      Hi Blest,

      Sorry I don’t completely understand your comment. Who do you have the same problem as?

      • Blest 4 years ago

        I can’t Sync HSS xt32 trigger with Canon 6D
        When use more than 160 Shutter speed on Canon 6D, upper half of image is dark.
        I want to use more than 500 shutter speed with xt32 trigger on Canon 6D but not compatible.
        What should i do?

        • KS 4 years ago

          Hi Blest,

          I just found out that HSS only works proper if the flash (Godox AD360) is on full flash power 1/1.
          My setup:
          Canon 6D
          Godox XTR16S 2.4GHz
          Godox XT32

            Hi KS,

            Do you have HSS mode set on the AD360? (You need to press the Mode and Set buttons at the same time to engage HSS mode).

            I just tried this with your set up and its working at all shutter speeds, and any power level down to 1/8th (which is the lowest available in HSS mode).

            I’m not sure what Blest’s flash set up is above, but the XT32 should be compatible with the 6D and HSS.

              Hi Flash Havoc,

              You are right! My bad. The highest power in HSS is 1/1 and the lowest 1/8th. Looks like the settings of the AD360 will be reset when you turn of the PB960. Not the case when you only turn of the AD360.

    Its been a while, where is xt32 for sony. seems like it has been forgotten.

    Hello FH

    I am trying to find if there is a new firmware for these XT32 triggers… mine I believe is the original U17 but with a few new camera bodies out and general fixes for the other triggers, I had hoped there was one for this too.

    I have looked on the Godox download site and only the user guide is there.

    Maybe with the new pro version this is now obsolete?

      Hi Neil,

      Yes I’m only aware of V17 as the latest firmware. If they are possibly shipping now with anything later installed I would expect Godox would have upload the files to their download page.

      I would think the Xpro have pretty much replaced the XT32, as Godox do not appear to be making any more versions of those now other than the Canon and Nikon versions already available. I would imagine they will keep producing the Canon and Nikon versions though.

      The Xpro do not have the alternate power scales for the older Godox studio lights like the XT32 provide though.

    Hello. I bought XT32c with U-17 firmware. I have a Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera with firmware 2.1.2. Why can not the camera see the trigger? Nowhere is there information. Godox is silent. Help, who knows the solution.

      Hi Slava,

      Sorry I don’t completely understand your problem. Do you mean the camera will not fire the transmitter when its mounted in the camera hotshoe?

      The XT32C is only a remote manual transmitter, so I don’t think there is any control through the cameras flash control menu if that is what you mean?

    Hi, hoping you can assist, I have just picked up an Ad360 with the XT 32. However it will not fire under 1/200!! Help!!

    • John Wilson 3 years ago


      What version of the XT32 and AD360 are you using and what camera?

      • David 3 years ago

        Ad360 (first one) xt32C and 5D mark IV. I used them last night as slave flashes & they worked perfectly. Just not working as a manual anything under 1/200.

          Hi David,

          I’m not sure if your’re aware of this already, though the AD360 require HSS mode to be set ON and OFF manually on the flash itself. So if they are firing in sync above 1/200, I assume you have the AD360 set to HSS mode ON?

          So then would you have switched HSS mode OFF to shoot below 1/200? Or is HSS mode still ON, and the flash possibly firing, and just not showing in the image because the power is too low in HSS mode?

        • John Wilson 3 years ago

          Have you enabled HSS on the AD360 (Press Mode and Sync buttons at the same time)?

  7. Sergey 3 years ago

    I have 2 cameras: Sony a6500 and Canon 80D. I plan to buy lights to accomodate both cameras whereas Sony is my primer and Canon – back up cameras. If i buy Godox TX32 Canon trigger and and Godox V860ii Canon flash will it work on Sony system as well? Thank you
