Normal HSS vs Powersync on RF60x
Posted By morenjavi
Replies: 15
Views: 341
Hello,

You can find very good definitions about what is powersync over there (ex. here Understanding HyperSync and High Speed Sync - PocketWizard Wiki). Sometimes it is called hypersync (I think they are exactly the same concept).

In powersync mode you fire your flash an maximum power and sync flash and camera so when your fire, and your first & second curtains are traveling over your sensor, you have light coming from the pulse of your flash, so all the frame is illuminated. You need a long pulse to achieve this, to 'cover' all the event. WIth HSS you emit a kind of continuous light during the same event. So you have two ways to get your frame illuminated, a long pulse or a semi-continuous light. Please, refer to the above link, and you'll find everything better explained.


Comparing a shot done with Powersync vs HSS, you get more light with powersync, but I'm afraid the difference will depend on the flash. With my Godox flashes I don't see so much difference, but it's noticeable. Sometimes you can get a pulse long enought without going to 1/1. Another point to consider is that, if you usually need to fire your flash at maximum power in HSS mode, HSS stresses more the flash compared with normal mode, so maybe is a better idea to use powersync instead of HSS.

I have no idea of how to get powersync on the RF60x, I can get powersync with my Godox flashes at 1/1 or a bit less, using some tricks or with old flashes where I can enable or disable HSS manually. Also, with my V6II I can get powersync with third party flashes if I put them at full power, easily.

Regards.

XPro-p and K5 miss firing.

Ah, ok, I understand now, thanks. But this is worse than I thought, your trigger should fire in manual mode hundreds of times without problem. Something is wrong. Try to put some tape or similar to disable all the pins but the central pin, to see if it fixes this issue, but my opinion is that your trigger is defective.

Hello, are you setting the camera's flash mode in 'wireless'? You don't need to do that, just set it in normal mode, as if you had a normal flash on your camera's hot shoe. Anyway, I tested this mode and it seems to ignore it too, AD200 works normally, so no matter what flash mode you choose. Wireless mode is for optically trigger another Pentax flash using your K5 popup flash.



You should change from TTL to M without issue just, pushing the MODE button on the XPro, changes are reflected immediately on the AD200. I have no issues related to change modes, AD200 changes from TTL to M to OFF without problem, no need to set the trigger ON and OFF.

Hello!

As I had some free time this morning (morning... here in this part of the globe) I cheched the K5 flash modes, that is, red eye and second curtain. I noticed no difference about how the AD200 performs, that is, is seems to just ignore such modes. So regardless you put normal, red eye or second curtain, it just emit the same pre-flash and I get pics with the same exposure.

By the way, I don't use a lot the K5-AD200 with PTTL, but it seems that I need less negative compensation for the AD200 than I told on my first post here, maybe -0.5 -0.7 is enough. I need -1EV or more with my on camera flash.

Hello.

I have the XProP, K5 and AD200. I don't have any issues with the trigger except I need to compensate -1EV in TTL, but this is the same compensation I use with other flashes with my K5. I have also an XProC that works without issues on the K5 and some other Godox triggers.

I had a issue months ago with one of my flashes and my K5, the flash fired randomly, sometimes at full power, sometimes not... my solution was just to clean the contacts on my k5 & flash, and the issue was solved. I'd try to clean the contacts first.

Other test you can do is to disable all the XPro pins but the central pin with some tape, and see if there is some change. If after cleaning contacts you still have the same issue, I'd return your XPro, you should not have any kind of issues on the K5. Even my old K10D works with the XproP.

Considering X2T vs V1

Hello,

I considered at the very beginning to get the TT350-P, but I discarded the idea. It's too weak for me, little battery... This flash has capabilities as a remote controller, but it has a tiny display where it seems you can only see the status of only one remote flash at a time, and also the way to change setting for remote flashes is not really quick.

The only Godox speedlight that has a decent interface for controlling remote flashes is the V1. If you look for the Robert Hall's videos, you can see how easy the V1 controls 3 remote flashes and the V1 as a master. Also, as the manual is yet avilable, you can get an idea about how easy or difficult is to do it.

Another option, that inkista has commented, should be the availability of a V860II-P. But this flash should have a similar interface to that of the V1.

Regards.

Godox XProC on Pentax: tests with my K3II, V6 II and other Godox equipment
Posted By morenjavi
Replies: 25
Views: 3,109
Hello,
If you are in a hurry, and just need a cheap trigger, a XT16 should be enough. This trigger supports the Godox X protocol so it will fire your AD400/AD600 pro without issue. Also the XT16 is quite cheap. An XT32 version (for example, Canon version) should work too. I have one of these (XT32C), and I can trigger all my Godox devices (ad200, ad360, v850). But the XT32 is a bit more expensive. Even an old 433MHz FT16 with a couple of FT16R receivers should work. You can connect the FT16R receiver to the USB port, and you are done. Any Godox trigger will allow to control power remotely, too.


No Godox triggers also can fire your AD400/AD600, you just need to connect the receiver to the 3.5mm sync port of your flash. I tested this kind of combination with yongnuo triggers (rf602/rf605) and my AD200, and it worked. Of course, you lose remote power control in this case.

Ok, I'll auto-answer myself: It seems that there is no evidence that the X2T supports PTTL pass through. If this is the case, then it has no sense to put any small PTTL flash on top of the X2T, because I'll lose PTTL for main, on camera flash. Still a valid idea, but not so good as to just use the V1, and have it all.

By the moment, I'll have to wait to confirm TTL passthrogh capability.

Hi guys,

I finished a work two weeks ago, edited pics and ordered for printing a week ago, and deliverd the printed pics into nice albums yesterday. I think it was a great success, the moms were delighted with the photographs, and almost all of them were sold.
As always, I just reviewed what worked, what not, what failed, if my equipment were suitable for the work or not... what to keep, what to change... that kind of things.

Some of you know that I'm wating for the Godox V1 to be available for Pentax. It's still not available and I couldn't use it for my past work. But the main reason for getting this flash is to simplify my main camera's setup. As I need a PTTL speedlight on camera for fill, but also to control 3 other flashes off camera, my solution is to have my Metz on camera, and a Xpro trigger on a bracket connected to my camera's sync port. It is not too uncomfortable, but I prefer to have a setup with less weight and fewer devices.

So when the V1 appeared, and I saw the first reviews, I thought it was the perfect device to solve my problem: a dedicated flash that is at the same time a trigger, and that is easy to operate. It's not super-powerfull, but I don't need a lot of power; my Metz is starting to get old, and I needed a flash with better recycle times.

Before the V1, I was considering the Metz M400, a very light and compact flash with good recycle times.
After the V1, my decision was clear, but now I'm starting to consider another option.

Why did I change my mind? Well, the answer was the X2T trigger. It seems a very capable trigger, quick operation. So, what if I just get a X2T for Pentax and put a M400 on top ? I'm considering 'my' pros and cons, and using the X2T this way doesn't seem a bad idea.


V1 pros
* flash and trigger in just one device
* can be used on camera or as slave
* lithium batteries

V1 cons
* weights 420 grams without batteries
* a bit expensive just for a fill flash

XT2 + M400 pros
* I get an extra spare Godox trigger (did I mention that a I have a XproP, 2 XProC, XT32 and FT16 :D? )
* I have a light flash if I just need it
* weights 90 + 220 = 310 grams without batteries
* Enable/disable the M400 for fill flash is super-fast (using the on/off button)
* I can use the X2T with my Metz 48, and decide if bought the M400 later

XT2 + M400 cons
* too much stress on the camera's shoe ?
* M400 can't be used as a slave
* use 'standard' batteries instead of lithium ones
* will the X2T passthrough allow all the flash functions on the top flash ?

What do you think ? I'm open to hear your opinions. I never had a X1T so not sure how good is as a passthrough device.

Av Flash Mode 1/50 Shutter Speed

The AD200 can be a bit heavy to hold it with a hand + modifiers, etc, during a long time. But you can use the EC-200 extension cable. This cable allows you to detach the AD200's head from the body, so you can put the body on your belt, and just hold the head with your hand. You could put the small octa-softbox on the AD200's head, and this could be a good run & gun setup, with TTL. You need a trigger on your camera. Just an idea.

What a nice results! It's clear that you master Av mode outside, with bright sun. Just your Cactus RF60 on camera ?
I'm still not comfortable with my setup with hard sun outside. I had a work last weekend and used my AD200 in TTL mode outside, under the sun and under the shade, but things didn't work as I expected. I had to switch to full manual mode finally. The k3-ii's rear LCD doesn't help with bright sun either, I need to be confident in PTTL or in my photometer, but the rear display is not my friend.

Av Flash Mode 1/50 Shutter Speed
Posted By morenjavi
Replies: 28
Views: 727
Hello,

I use M mode 99% of the time, but, about a month ago or so, I dediced to check the Av mode with my (Godox) flashes, just to see if I could use it with our without HSS, the ambient could be controlled... this kind of thinks.

Av mode was a bit pointless for me, at the beggining; I just couldn't understand why the speed was fixed at 1/focal length when you are in 'fast sync mode'. Fortunately, Nigel clarified a bit why.

So this is my understanding and what I tested about the Av mode with flash, that depends on the 'slow sync' camera mode.

SLOW SYNC MODE ON

So I think we all know what happens here: you set the Av, and then your camera sets the correct speed, depending on the ISO, etc. The flash contributes so you have a pic with a good mix of ambient and flash. If I'm not wrong, the speed is limited to 1/180-1/200, that is, you use always normal sync speeds.

SLOW SYNC MODE OFF

So, when you are in this mode, and you just turn your flash ON, you notice that your speed seems to be fixed at 1/focal length. So now you can face two situations: you have low ambient light or not.

If you have low ambient light, ISO fixed, Av fixed, and you fire your flash, you get a pic with really low ambient contribution and high flash contribution. From this point, you can control the ambient contribution by raising the ISO, so you get more ambient in the mix. Another option is just put auto-ISO, so you get a more or less good ambient/flash mix. If you set +-EV compensation, ambient and flash are compensated. The only way to change the flash/ambient contribution independently is to play with the ISO for the ambient, and FEC for the flash.

So now comes what was a nice surprise for me. If you have enought ambient light, suppose you are outside, you will notice that the speed go above 1/focal length value. The speed is not really fixed, it's just that the camera puts a lower limit. The speed can go above the sync speed, and you can use HSS with your flash. Again, you get a more or less good mix of ambient/flash light.

I don't remember exactly but I did the same tests with my AD200 in TTL mode and my PTTL Metz on camera, so you should reproduce my results without issue.

So the Av is more complex and useful that I thought at the beggining. I'm still using the M mode, that is my preferred mode, but it's good to know about other options.

Regards.

Minimise Misfire Risk and some other Cactus specific stuff

Hello,

Some years ago, I still had a mix of flashes and triggers from different brands. Then, I had some Godox lights controlled by the old FT-16, but still several speedlights without any remote control, so I had to set power settings before using it.
So, setting power and triggering were two different tasks for me:

* To set power, I used the FT-16 for my Godox lights, and manual settings for the other speedlights
* To trigger & control groups, I used the nice and reliable rf-605 transceiver

So I had a rf-605 in TX mode and 3 rf-605 in RX mode for slaves.
Let's see now what is the replationship with your problem, and if this can help you or not.
One of the problems that I have to resolv then, were to trigger a set of speedlights with only one receiver, so I had two ways to solve it:

A. I put a speedlight on the rf-605's hotshoe, then I used a sync cable from the rf-605 to another flash. So this way, after the power settings were set, one receiver could trigger two flashes at the same time.


B. I used a dual hotshoe like this one
This dual hotshe have a 3.5mm sync port, so, with a receiver and the proper cable, you can trigger two flashes. I used this way several times with great success. There are versions similar to this dual hotshoe that allows you to fire three flashes with only one reveiver. I still have a dual an tri-flash brackets.

I have not a complete solution to your problem, but my suggestion is trying to use a v6/v6ii receiver the same way I used my rf-605 to trigger two flahes (I used my V6 receiver this way without issues). I have the feeling that a v6/v6ii receiver could be more reliable just for triggering. Based on this idea, maybe you can find a valid solution for your problem.

Regards,
Javier.

I use alkaline batteries with my XPro triggers. I haven't experienced problems with Ni-MH ones, but the battery indicator doesn't work correctly with Ni-MH, so I used alkalines from the beginning. This is advised in the manual.

Hello,

I have to thank "BruceBanner" for posting usually very interesting threads.
I'm afraid this time I can not contribute much, except for more questions. There is a point that I'm missing here, let's see if I can explain it, this is what I understand:

* Cactus V6 II is announced as having multi-master capabilities.
* This means, for me, that I can have up to 20 triggers in Tx mode controlling one or more set of receivers with different settings, so when I fire a trigger, it's settings are sent to the receiver(s) and then, the fire signal. This is at least how it works for my Godox triggers.
* In multi-master configuration, triggers and receivers are set on the same channel
* A trigger is only transmitting when you change settings or send the fire signal
* So I don't see a problem with two or more triggers on the same channel, if you are not firing it exactly at the same time. What am I missing here ? :(, why just having two triggers set on the same channel, but doing nothing, can produce a malfuntioning on a receiver ?

I usually work with two triggers for my Godox lights and never saw a problem. Not all of my triggers have multi-master capabilities. I usually have the same power for all my lights, but any trigger fires different groups combination. All triggers and receivers share the same channel.

Finally, what's is an acceptable misfire percentage ? 0%... 1%... 5%... more ? In my case, I have a XproC with a 'fail ratio' of 4%, and for me, it's defective.


Regards.

Thanks for your detailed comment, I appreciate it.
I agree about the Godox lack of service (that RH didn't mention). As you tell, one way to fight agains this situation is to buy via Adorama, Amazon or other sellers that can offer warranties. Here in Spain I'm lucky as I have at least two sellers that offer some kind of support for Godox products (replacement and so), and of course you have always a two years warranty if you bought locally. Of course I understand that some people could need a more pro service, for example 24h replacement warranty or so, that Godox doesn't offer. But... for the price... I can live without it :).

BTW, Robert made ANOTHER video ;), this time comparing the V1 vs Profoto A1. Suprisingly it seems that the V1 has the same power than the A1, although the a1 is announced with GN40 vs GN28 for the V1. But it's logical if you look at the real power: 76Ws for A1, 75Ws for V1.

Thanks for the appointment. Yes I do HSS this way with the XPro-P :). I used the 'stacking way' before having the XPro-P. But the AD360 have no TTL capabilities, regardless if you use the foor or not. Maybe you are referring to the mk2 version? Anyway, the point for me is to balance power vs ease of handling. With my AD200 I can get a decent pic really quick by using TTL, If I'm in a hurry; and TTL works reasonably well, so useful for quick pics on the outside.

The problem with the AD360 if that, yes, you have to manually enable/disable HSS, it's limited to 1/8 and, I always thought, that you need to change power also manually in HSS mode. But after reading your comment I checked again and, to my surprise, I could change power without issue by using the trigger. I'm sure I did the same test time ago and I couldn't change it remotely.

Do I usually need the extra power of the AD360? That's the question ;). The AD200 is so portable and full of features. Most of the time I'm using the AD200 only.

Thanks inkista, interesting info.
I have my old AD360 and I'm still deciding if keep it or change for another AD200. I'll do depending on how how much I use TTL and remote HSS control, but I've thinking about it some time. The AD360 is very simple but it has near 2x power compared to the AD200. Not an easy decision. But if I finally do, I'd buy the pro version, the price is similar to the old version.

Definitely Godox needs to hire some Cactus triggers designers. With ONE button, on the Cactus:
* can set a grup on/off/ttl
* support short/long press (select 1 group/all groups)
* have a led to visually see if the group is active or not

With Godox you need THREE buttons (GROUP, MODE and ALL) to do less things. Poor, really. Yes, the R2 MarkII seems to have better desing. Also, they are developing the X2... but I have at present 4 Godox triggers (plus one defective XProC that I got for free), I need to sell some before buying another one :(.

Hello Class A and thanks for you comments.

Notice that I'm posting my opinions based on the idea of using the V1 as a replacement of my on camera flash+trigger setup, so my arguments may not be valid in other cases.



I hope so, I'm not sure if the TCM function doesn't work for the master too. It will be useful for me.


Well, I just argue that the interface seems quicker to operate. Please remember my point: I'm a person with on-camera flash that needs to control 3 slave groups, just 3. The V1 seems to have everything I need for a trigger, and the way it controls the slave groups seems quicker compared to the XProP. Having said that, I will keep my XProP. If I don't need a main flash on camera, it's of course a better option.

I saw a demonstration of the interfaz in the video of Robert Hall; he explains how to change power for groups when V1 is in master mode. Four buttons for four groups, the same button selects a group but also can cycle the group status OFF-M-TTL. Then you have the dial to change power. With my XProP, to change the status of a group I have to: select the group, then push the button mode. It's slower. Also, for me is more logical to use only one button to select and change the group status, similar to other triggers. He comments too that it's faster compared to the V860II series.


Yes, normally, you don't need a bracket to hold a trigger. But you need to hold your trigger some way, isn't it ? So why do I use a bracket for a trigger? I need it to control (power, triggering, ON/OFF status) my other (3) flashes so my XproP needs to be accesible and connected to my camera's sync port. My PTTL flash is on camera. The XProP is not a small trigger, I need to hold it some way... maybe rubber bands or velcro straps ? I doesn't like the idea (I tried), and I have yet a spare and ligth bracket (Demb bracket). So this is at present my own way to have everything working. I just can't put my XproP on my pocket, I need it connected and accesible. My Metz can't trigger my off-camera lights, and using optical triggering is not an option for me. I have a second camera with another (Godox) trigger to control the same set of lights, so it's still more complicated. The V1 will solve 'my problem' in a better way, I suppose other options are possible, like optical triggering, but if you are on a a place with docens of people firing small flashes... forget it


Yes, but it's more complicated to use the AD200 as on-camera flash ;). And in my case, I need the AD200 off-camera.




I agree, for someone that mainly needs a slave flash, the AD200 can be a better option (only 50 difference or so). But my idea for the V1 is to replace my on-camera flash, so it's mainly a way to have a better on camera flash that also can be a trigger for my other lights. Using it as a slave is only something that adds value to this speedlight, not the main reason to buy it, for me.

About the round head, I can get a decent round pattern with my AD200 and the ad-s6 reflector; but with the ad-s2 + included diffuser I get a pattern even better. This is a setup more powerful than the round head. Maybe not as nice as the round head, but valid for me. I like the round head, but I do not have a specific need that justifies buying it (by the moment). The case can be different for others.

This is part of a series of pics I took some days ago, comparing the pattern (size, power, fall off) projected by my most used diffusers: ad-sX, umbrellas, etc...



Maybe the round head's pattern is better that the ad-s2, but how much?




In general, I agree. My own opinions about this point in post #14 ;).

Regards.

It's something more expensive than I thought, but I'll buy it. Compared to my current flash (a humble metz 48) I see a lot of advantages:

* master, it can control other Godox flashes. The interface seems even better/quicker than the XproP. It will simplify my main camera, goodbye to a bracket just to hold a trigger. Speedlight and trigger are now only one device. This is the main point for me.

* lithium battery: more discharges and faster recicle time (mine needs 4+ sec. to recharge after a full discharge). Another strong point for me.

As a disadvantage, GN of metz 48@50mm is 35. Only 28 for the V1@50mm. Well, let's see what it really means in the real world.


Other points are maybe less important. In my case, I like the round head, maybe with the flash on camera it doesn't matter if it's round or square, but I think it can be good when you use the V1 as slave, off camera, to fill an umbrella or similar.

I'm doing a list of speedlights and triggers to sell...

Thanks. TCM is a great function. Yes, it registers the power used on the last TTL shot, and you can let the flash in manual mode with this fixed setting, and avoid the pre-flash. But it's also a way to know if you are near the minimum or maximum power limit on your flash.

Thanks a lot Nigel for the point. With flash, I use the 'M' mode 99% of the time, so I did not pay much attention to the 'issue'.
I checked your suggestion and, with a real flash, it's just as you told: the speed is 'fixed' to 2 x focal length, but the speed is released when you set slow sync mode on camera (the only behabiour that has logic for me).
When I cheked the slow sync mode with the XProP I noticed no change on the speed regardless the camera flash mode, but I finally discovered that I have to unset the HSS SYNC mode on the XProP, then the speed works as expected. You are limited to sync speeds, but it's good to know.
Again, thanks, my AD200 have increased it's value again :D.

BTW. Doesn't that comment belong to another thread?

No solution? Several solutions were given on this thread (read stevebrot's suggestions #17), you can like it or not, but they allow you to control Godox flashes when you have M lens and the XProP.

1. Tape to disable all contacts but the central pin
2. On post #21, you can see a solution using the camera's sync port to fire the XProP with, two pictures to illustrate the setup
3. On the last post you can read that 'zazism_rx' used a passthroug adapter, and it worked

Finally, If you have any other godox trigger, line XT16/XT32 or even XPro for Canon, you can use your M lenses without issue.

Regards.
