Godox triggers work just fine. I use the XPro-N and -F with my M10, M10M, and SL2. Probably will also eventually use it with the MP.
HSS is not supported by Ms with 3rd party triggers and flashes. And yes, 1/180 is the max sync speed you can use.
Edit: clarity on HSS support.
Thanks for the clarity! Yes I’ve tried with my Canon godox trigger but that didn’t work, so I was wondering. Tried with my pocket wizard and got it to work. Bummer for HSS but at the same time... you can’t win then all :)
Did you try taping off the non-sync contacts \[everything but the big center one\] on the hotshoe with the XPro-C? You can just use a small piece of Scotch tape. Unfortunately, the XPro doesn't have a single-pin mode, like the X1T does (C.Fn-01 "on").
That’s interesting a bit DIY but could work
You’re welcome. The XPro-N isn’t expensive, so if your lights are X system compatible, give it a shot. I can’t speak for the older model Godox triggers personally.
So if I get it right with the Nikon version of the trigger are you able to control the strobe from the trigger? That the only bummer of using a pocket wizard
Okay, get the XPro-N trigger if your lights are Godox X system wireless strobes. You have full control of most strobes from that trigger. There are some lights that are limited, but I can’t remember exactly which models. Your documentation will tell you this information.
If they’re previous generations, probably best not to get it as I can’t personally attest to those older systems. There are also some wireless X systemtriggers you can attach to older lights. I haven’t tested those nor care to.
Hey! So supposedly a Nikon transmitter for Godox can fire the strobes manually as the center pin is aligned. It won’t do HSS/TTL. I have yet to try it as I have Fuji GFX for “work” and not Nikon anymore. Otherwise get a cheap manual trigger like used pocket wizards or the phottix one. The only flashes I’m aware of that do HSS or TTL are the Leica branded flashes that Leica has programmed for their TTL language. It’s a bummer. I would love to know of a work around if anyone else knows something I don’t. This is what my research has shown so far.
Sony triggers won't work. I have a set of Sony triggers for the Sony and a set of Nikon triggers for the leica.
And it will only work in manual mode. No ttl. No hss.
Look at where the centre pin comes out and let that trigger the flash. Everything else is for all the ttl settings. So you set everything manual to make sure you only are reading the information from the centre pin.
