Godox Trigger and flash system - What am I doing wrong?
Posted By apisto

I would appreciate any advice as to what mistakes I am making, settings wrong, etc. I have the following equipment

X-Pro P trigger, used on a K-3
X-Pro O trigger, used on a Panasonic G9
Flashpoint Zoom R2 Mini P (Godox TT350P)
Flashpoint Zoom Li-ON R2 O (Godox V860II-O)

I am not a flash person, so I am just looking to get basic TTL functionality via the trigger.

When using the X-Pro O trigger on the G9, using TTL firing either or both flashes, flash yields consistent exposure.

When using the X-Pro P trigger on the K3, using TTL, firing either or both flashes, every second frame, beginning with the first frame after powering up equipment, the flash fires and I get a properly exposed result. However, every second frame, beginning with the second frame after powering up equipment, the flash fires, but not in sync with the shutter, as clearly no light from the flash is in the exposed file. The shutter does open, as if exposure is boosted in post, there is data there. This behavior carries over in M, TAV, AV and TV shooting modes. Also, if I use the TT350P as a trigger for the V860II-O, the same thing happens. When shooting in M flash mode instead of TTL, this problem does NOT happen, whether using the XPro or TT350 as a Master.

EDIT: Also, I performed a factory reset of the XPro P, but could not figure out how to factory reset the flashes. I tried the K3 in both Wireless master and Wireless controller mode.

I would appreciate any advice. I expect and hope that I am just doing it wrong! :)

- I am the original owner
- Excellent or better
- All original items included EXCEPT hot shoe cover and eye cup. Pentax Magnifying eyecup will come installed. Also incldes Wasabi wall charger and 2 wasabi batteries.
- Now includes Kirk L-plate!


**SOLD** 2. Pentax DA 18-135 WR ($205 Shipped) **SOLD**

- I purchased this as a refurbished lens. (No issues)
- Excellent or better condition
- Box and original items included


**SOLD** 3. Pentax 55-300 F4-5.8 WR ($215 Shipped) **SOLD**

- I am the original owner
- This lens is in great shape and has seen little use.
- Box and original items included


**SOLD** 4. Pentax DA* 55 1.4 SDM ($300 Shipped) **SOLD**

- I am the original owner
- This lens is in great OPTICAL and COSMETIC shape, however
- The lens AF takes 3-5 seconds to wake up every time the camera has been powered off for a while. Then the AF works fine, but slow, like all of this model do. I have no other body or SDM lenses to better isolate the cause. But, given the history of SDM lenses, lets assume it is the lens. For this reason, this lens is sold AS-IS
- Box and original items included


5. Pentax DA 10-17 fisheye ($275 Shipped) NOW $250

- I am not the original owner
- Excellent or better condition
- Box and original items NOT included

6. Pentax F50 1.7 ($75 Shipped)

- I am not the original owner
- Good Condition. Scuffs. Crack in the focus distance window
- Only lens, and Pentax front and rear cap
- I am marking the price down due to the cosmetic condition and while not soft, this lens is not quite as sharp as an earlier copy I had.


7. Pentax FA 35 2.0 ($200 Shipped)

- I am not the original owner
- Excellent or better cosmetic and optical condition condition
- Significant scratch on distance scale window
- I bought this from KEH as a BGN lens. Probably they marked it as BGN because there is little bit more wobble when extended then there should be. This has not been a problem for me and has not affected picture quality for me.
- Only lens, and Pentax front and rear cap

8. Magnicon (Tokina Rebadge) 70-210 4.5 constant ($75 Shipped, or $50 when purchased with another lens)

- I am not the original owner
- Good condition condition. Optically excellent, but body of lens has some paint loss

I really appreciate everyone's feedback and the photos posted. It sounds like I need to try out copy #3.

To answer the question about focus tuning, I have not formally tested it, but it "seems" spot on. Also, when testing sharpness and contrast, I snapped photos of the back of a dollar bill at an angle. There is a lot of fine detail in the texture of the paper and the printing.

Please help me understand if I have a "bad copy" of the DA*55, or if the below behavior is normal.

I recently bought a new DA*55. At f1.6 and smaller, the aperture blades do not seem to close down evenly as shown below in a photo at f1.6. Part of the circle is nice and rounded, but part is ugly because the aperture blades are not even, or not closing evenly. So I returned it for another copy. But the second copy exhibits the exact same behavior on the exact same part of the circle! I know this is something that will not often come up in normal shooting conditions. But I intend this as my "artsy-fartsy" lens, so it will affect photos from time to time.

Is this effect normal? Are these bad copies?

Also, on both copies, while the lens IQ is good at f1.6, at f1.4 the sharpness is low, and the contrast very low. I guess this is to be expected, though?

Thank you in advance for everyone's time.

Thank you for the responses. The hunting is the "flaw" I was most expecting. Although I also have a K5IIs, I wonder if the K3 does any better?

Has anyone tried the HD Pentax-DA AF Rear Converter 1.4x AW with the Tamron 70-200mm F2.8 Di LD Macro?

If so:

1. How is the IQ?
2. When used together, do the lens and TC communicate with the body properly?
3. How is the AF performance in diffrerent lighting conditions?
4. Other observations?

Thanks!

The VF indicating where exactly the crop would be will help with composition. Plus, I like taking pictures better then cropping in post, and would rather spend my time as such.

Surely that would be user selectable, or Pentax will loose sales on the new FF body.
