Also Mark, since you commented on the new format… how do you feel about the “house ad” that is inserted in the middle of this video?
I have to admit I do not like adds but things have to be paid for somehow. Adds are better than no content, just hope that over time they do not become too intrusive. The current level are not too bad in most cases. If I had a choice I would prefer adds be at the beginning.
It's fine as an overview, which is exactly what I needed. I am getting two remotes and the transmitter today and wanted to see what I was getting into. Thanks for your time and effort, very helpful, sir! :-)
My pleasure!
This was great, but I don't mind a longer video at all. I am more than happy to watch a longer version so I know how to work a product really well and make full use of all its functions.
Looks good, I might do a buy
By any chance will the Godox TT350o work with the XPro remote ?
do a video on HSS with this
I have godox v865 II, when I set this on xpro, working, then I got ad200 pro, on xpro working, now I tried both ob chanel one, different groups, non is firing and if I switch one off, also, how I set this back?
Sounds like your channel and groups are mixed up. Make sure the one flash is on the right channel and group
I just purchased 2 of the Godox AD100s and the Godox X Pro C. First venture into flash and , after watching several supposedly "easy to understand" videos, became very frustrated trying to get it all to work. Your video is EXCELLENT! After watching I was able to put it all together. I can't thank you enough.
Oh that’s awesome to hear, thanks!
Thanks a ton! awesome video!
Good information but please SLOW DOWN!!!
Try the 0.75x speed playback. I talk fast, sorry.
Where is part one?
@PhotoJoseph Thanks - found it!
Is there a way to turn off flashes individually to test lighting?
Yes, absolutely. I do this all the time.
Thank you so much Mr.joseph for this tips
thanks for this! :)
Thank you! the Step feature!
Big thank you for this comprehensive tutorial .. brilliant
Great video, everything so clearly explained - thanks! I have a question... I intend to get a godox xpro remote for my Nikon, I already have 3 Nikon flashguns, will I need a Godox receiver to fire each of these? If so, what would work best with the godox xpro transmitter? Thanks!
Can the X Pro remotely control the TT600 (which is manual only, no TTL)?
You made it so easy! Thanks Joseph!
This is just what I was looking for, love your delivery too! Subbed!
Thank you!
Excellent! Best tutorial ever. Thank you!!!
How do you set HSS on an XPRO Trigger when paired with a V1? I'm breaking my head on this one. On The V1 I just push the sync button, but it just does not appear on the XPRO. HELP!
trying to follow with my xpro by the time I look at what he is talking about he has gone to another portion of the instruction.
This isn’t designed to be a “follow along in real-time” guide. If it were it’s be 5x as long and everyone would complain that it was too long. Please use the pause and back-up features of YouTube if you’re trying to set yours up as I go.
Not a single word on using the Pro as a remote shutter release?
Glad to find this review as I just picked up this remote. Quick question- if I want to use two bodies, would it make sense to have two remotes and would both cameras be able to control the light setup? or for example, two photographers using the same setup- each with a remote?
Hello Joseph. Do you know if it is possible to get these triggers to sync above 1/250 with Panasonic S1 family? I know the S1 can sync at 1/320, but when I have the XPro trigger on I can't go higher than 1/250. Same if I put the flash (V1) on camera. I don't want HSS, I want full sync at 1/320, which I know the S1 supports - but so far it seems that Godox does not. Appreciate your insight...
Not that I'm aware of. That's a question for Godox for sure.
Dude, you rock. I'm just getting into mutli-flash now and you really unpacked this beautifully. THANK YOU!
Awesome!
Thanks Joseph, well explained!
Glad it was helpful!
Is it possible to trigger the test flash feature remotely... Let's say when using a light meter... Is it possible with the xpro attached to a camera's hot-shoe to trigger it to produce a test flash while you're standing next to your subject or light?
The easiest way to do that is with a PC cable from the strobe to the meter
@PhotoJoseph Thank you! I will look into what that entails...
A very cheap cable
This is the best video explanation hands down! I have been struggling trying to get my trigger set to the light and also getting my camera HSS to work on my Nikon Z6. Thank you for this video!!!
Great video! But, what about the TEST button?
What about it? It test fires the flash…
@PhotoJoseph Thanks for your reply. What I need to know is if this test fires the flash(es) at the right power, as when shooting with the camera. I have Nikon gear, and the SU-800 test button does not (not always). :)
@PhotoJoseph I’m asking you this because I need to know how I can use a hand held light meter (photo meter) with this Godox system.
@José M. Garay If the flash is in manual, the test button will flash at whatever it's set to (full, quarter, half, etc.). If it's in an automatic mode, then it'll just flash at some power (no idea what) because the camera is part of the calculation to determine when to turn the flash off. Does that answer your question?
@PhotoJoseph Yes, man! Thanks!
Hi, does it also trigger the shutter? That is does it also have the functionality to be a wireless shutter release unti?

Thanks
Not that I’m aware of
@PhotoJoseph thank you
Great video and great explanation! I've watched several videos on this remote and yours is the best! Thanks for making it simple.
Please kindly help me out. Iha e à godox x pro Nikon but im unable pair it up with my nikon speedlights. Please help.
Please reach out to Godox tech support
I bought this trigger Godox XPro-C for my Canon 5D Mark III, my speedlite Canon 430EX II but I can't get it work wirelessly. Is there anything I am doing wrong? Please kindly help.
please reach out to the manufacturer for tech support
will this control the godox ad600 at the sametime
Thanks for the explanations, they are very clear. However, I do have a question: With this trigger, it is not possible to switch to the MULTI mode, is it?
Hm, I don’t recall, sorry. Check with Godox or just download the user guide for the unit you’re interested in.
Just got this and it looks great. However I cannot see any way to save the group settings so every time I switch it off I have to set these up again. Is there a way to do this?
Good morning sir..after long time perfect tutorial catched.. your video are diamond 💎💎💎...sir a small doubt..if I use multiple flash with trigger..if I don't fire flashes in 15-20 minute..is it off or in stand by mode sir.... please message me sir....
Do you know if it is possible to use a xpro(n) to shoot a tt685(s)?
I just got the XproS and TT600. I got the flash to connect signal, but the remote seems to have the group set to off. I cant switch to on. Buttons or dial just scroll the menue.
Now why would Godox not include firmware update with mac? Photographers are hella apple users.
Yeah it’s super annoying
Hi, dank je wel voor de video ! ik ben momenteel nogal in strijd met mijn nieuwe godox v1 flitser + xpro trigger, mede doordat er weinig goede handleidingen bestaan in het nederlands. Gelukkig heb jij deze tutorial gemaakt, echter: als mijn trigger op A staan en CH 1 ... en mijn flitser staat ook op tzelfde ingesteld, dan nog zie ik niet iets wijzigen op mijn flitser.. als ik de trigger aanstuur en wijzig. Dus Iets klopt er niet... heb jij enig idee hoe dit kan?
Sounds like they trigger and flash aren't compatible… if they are, then perhaps you need to update the firmware? I linked to a video on how to do that in the description.
Can you use the pro to fire an older flash if it is on a X1
I don’t know every model compatibility matrix. You will need to check with Godox on this.
TY!!!
How do I sync my godox xpro with a Nikon sb600?
11 min video - just what I needed! Now I'm up and shooting. Thanks so much.
Sweet!
I can seem to get my b chan. To TTYL. Sync as of today my ad 200 and v1. For nikon wont fire. Not sure what I did
The TTL funtion of the (x1t/x2t/Xpro) can control the TT600 (Manual Flash)?
The best info, Thank you👍
I would like to know ETTL M zoom 35 mm (What does the M zoom 35mm mean)
Thanks mate for this great tutorial!
