Xpro-P TTL Wireless Flash Trigger and Bracketing

Has anyone played with bracketing and the Xpro-P ?
I had a couple of misfires when bracketing (5 x 0.3 steps.)

Any advice? Anybody else play with this?


I had do a professional product shoot last week, and used the Xpro-P on my 645z with an AD600 Pro, AD400 Pro, and AD200 with the round head.
Got great results, including a couple tricky things.
Current firmware in everything (645z v1.30, AD200 v2.2, 600 Pro 1.3, and whatever came with the 400Pro).

Wish I had jotted down exactly what settings I was using at the time.

What power level did you use and what was your shuttter speed?

Although even the AD200 features rather fast recycle speeds, near full power it is quite possible that it (or another of your strobes) simply didn't recycle quickly enough.
You could check that by enabling the recycle beep confirmation and make sure you hear the beep before each shot in the sequence.

According to the Godox official website, the recycle of AD 600 Pro is between 0.01 - 0.9 second on full-power. However, they didn't tell you the truth is that if you take too much photoshoot, the probability of on 0.9 is high, especially your shoot fast. I think it is a common issue.

You can set up bracketing (at least on the KP/K-1) to be something that requires the user to have to take individual shutter pushes for each exposure, rather than just one click that sets them all off.

Thanks BruceBanner - you reminded me the 645z has the same capability to default to single press per exposure vs shooting them all.

Definitely turned out to be cycle time related.
