I just got my Godox Xpro-P trigger to be used with Godox AD400 Pro and K-1. I wanna try TTL and HSS. Question: are there any settings I need to modify on my K-1 for best results?

Godox XProC on Pentax: tests with my K3II, V6 II and other Godox equipment

Update: the session was a complete disaster :lol::lol::lol: I was reviewing the results today and honestly I think I have never taken such bad photos, to the point where I'm ashamed to post the results here.

The equipment performed ok. The softbox I think is particularly great, not so difficult to mount as some reviewers complained, took me like 2 minutes from the first try. And the light is awesome. The flash worked without a problem with the Xpro-C mounted on the K-1. I didn't try HSS or TTL, just triggering and adjusting the flash power.

But the framing and posing were just plain wrong. I had a lot of pictures for inspiration saved on my mobile phone and I thought it would be quite easy to reproduce them but in reality it proved so much more difficult. We couldn't even get one of them right. Maybe it's my lack of experience shooting indoors and working with a model as I mostly shoot landscapes.

An assistant would have been nice to have because I discovered that even a slight movement of the model resulted in a dramatic change of the light, so I had to adjust the light all the time which was a bit awkward since that softbox is really big. Also, even working with only one light source, I think I have to experiment a lot with light positioning.


Luckily for me the models knew about my lack of experience so they didn't get mad after seeing the results. We agreed to repeat the shooting but next time we will go for an outdoor location as I am much more comfortable shooting outdoors. Communication also went great, we had quite a few laughs.

Overall an interesting experience and hopefully I've learned a thing or two. As they say... trying is the first step.... to failure. So the lesson is don't try :D

Thank you. Yes I think the FA 77 is a must have... at least until the new DFA* 85mm comes out :)



I think I also have few pictures with exactly the same head :)

Update: once at the store, I have discovered that the AD400 Pro arrived on stock just on this day, so I couldn't resist and bought one. I also bought a Xpro-C trigger (the Canon version) and did some quick test at the store. It seems I can trigger the flash in manual mode, also control the power and the modeling lamp. I didn't have time to try HSS and TTL, but I'm planning to resell the Canon version and order the Xpro-P version online. I have also bought the Godox P120L parabolic octabox, so despite good advice from Clackers I will be using just one light only. I don't have much experience with light so I think I want to play with one light only and see how it goes before getting into 2 lights setups. I will keep you posted with the results.

Thank you for the detailed answer, but read your reply too late and already bought the Xpro-C trigger (the Canon version). I did a quick test at the store and I can trigger the AD400 Pro, control the modeling light and adjust the power of the flash in manual mode. I had limited time so I didn't test for HSS and TTL. I am planning to order the Xpro-P and just sell the Canon version when the trigger for Pentax arrives.

What solutions do I have if I want to radio trigger an AD4000 PRO or AD600 PRO from a K-1? I don't need HSS or TTL, I just need to trigger the flash. I know ideally I would need the Xpro-P but it's not on stock and I need it until tomorrow. Any other trigger that I can use?

Excellent point, I thought briefly about that but now after your detailed comment I am thinking about renting the 2 lights setup. If I get an umbrella for my flash I would have 3 lights available (guess I can use my flash in optic slave mode). Thank you!

What do you mean on high stand outside? not sure if I can do that, those windows are at 2nd floor.



I will be shooting alone with no assistant so yeah, I like the idea of playing with just a single light source. I have used the YN 560 III in the past with shoot-through umbrellas but didn't like the results so much. Now I suspect this was because I was positioning the umbrella too far away from the subject.

I like the idea of AD600 Pro used as a single light with 120cm parabolic softbox. I have seen some examples with this setup on the internet and I liked the results a lot, and the AD600 Pro is available on stock at a local store (but not the AD200, the AD400 and most important no Xpro-P trigger).

Maybe I should just try to postpone the session and order the AD400 Pro and the trigger, should be able to get them in 1-2 weeks.

Or... how about using my YN 560 III and try to bounce of the ceiling for the full body shots, and shoot-through umbrella for the rest? ceiling is not that high...

But regardless of what I get, AD600 Pro or AD200: if I want to use them in manual mode, no HSS, no TTL, is it possible to trigger them with the trigger for YN (RF-603 II N3) ? as a temporary solution until I get a Xpro-P trigger.
