X-T3 with Godox X2T-F

Recommended Posts

I have seen many posts regarding the faulty combination of the two.

To sum up the issues so far I noticed:

1. Occasional lag (orange LED) when shooting with the X2T-F attached. Supposedly to be fixed in the latest firmware V1.2, however I still experienced the same issue.

2. Flash Settings in the X-T3 defaulted to TTL always despite all my Godox Flashes are Manual-only. Tried switching to M but it always defaults back to TTL mode. And the mode switches back and forth occasionally on its own. This results in a slight delay when pressing the shutter button.

Very frustating indeed! Has anyone has these problems too?

It is a frustrating problem that placing a Godox flash or trigger on a Fuji camera will not allow the camera to be in anything but TTL mode. As far as I know it is the same for all Fuji cameras, and all Godox triggers except for X1T that reportedly has a firmware that fixes the problem.

This thread is a good read: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/62565196

Also, please write Godox an email. They need to fix it.

IMPORTANT UPDATE

Regarding the issue that a Fuji camera will always be in TTL mode if a Godox product is in the hot-shoe:

I got a sad response from Godox, but at least we know now that this issue will not be fixed. From this point on I can not regard Fujifilm and Godox to be actually compatible. (Many users will off course never feel this is a problem, but for shooting very timing specific action (think skateboarding or dancing) a delay to the shutter (because camera is always in TTL) is no joke.)

Here is the message from Godox:

Dear Lars
Good day!
 
Thanks for contacting Godox.
I relayed your feedback to our techs and they replied that this issue could not be resolved.
Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    • Hi all. After a long break from photography I've decided to get back into it and am about to purchase a Fuji X-E2 body (which I deem more than adequate for my needs at this point).    I had previously shot Canon but could never really afford decent glass for it. But I see times have changed and not only do Fuji seem to have some reasonably priced XF lenses, there are a number of recommended 3rd party manufacturers in the game.   I am still very much on a budget but don't need much for my particular interests. Thinking a 10-12mm, a 23-27mm and a 35mm should meet my needs (mainly street with some landscapes) and perhaps a 50mm or 60-100mm later. I'm only interested in prime lenses and reckon it comes down to a decision over whether I want AF or not.   Been looking at the Fujinon f1.4s which tick the boxes but will take me a long time to purchase given my financial situation. Happy to take it slow though if that's the general concensus (would be happier with one very good lens than three average).   The other option is the MF offerings from 7artisans, TTartisans and the like. I could pick up a few with very wide apertures (up to 0.95) very affordably. But I'm interested in the opinions of those who have used and compared them both (Fuji and non-Fuji). I don't have any natural objection to MF as I used it way back for film, but I haven't shot a mirrorless digital with a manual lens and never used zoom focusing, focus peaking etc. From what I've seen it's pretty quick and straightforward if slightly slower than AF. I must admit that the AF on my old canon DSLR used to annoy the hell out of me with the incessant hunting for focus and noise. But that was a long time ago and I'm guessing things have changed (these were also very much lower end Canon lenses).   I've had a search already, but if anyone would mind offering their opinions based on experience I'd be very grateful.   Many thanks...
    • I had this problem. I toggled between the two image disp options (full screen/small window) for OVF in the menu, and now it works again. 
    • Same here with a x h2s connected to a raveneye, losing the raveneye made my recording stop 😭

    • Hey All! I'm new here and desperate! I just upgraded from my XT3 to an XT5 and need tethering advice. A huge part of what I do is tethered shoots and I've been successfully tethering my XT3 with Fuji Tether Pro Plugin to Lightroom for years. It is essential that the software can fully control the camera. First of all it was very difficult to update the existing plugin. You have to remove it and reinstall it,  which doesn't work properly.  In the end,  I had to manually unzip the downloaded update file and enter in the code myself. More importantly.  The update does allow you to focus and take photos but the settings control doesn't work. That's means you can not adjust ISO,  Shutter speed or f-stop with the software. These buttons simply don't work when you click them. Has anybody else experienced this?  Is there perhaps a previous version of the update does work? Has anybody managed to tether with Capture one?  I read there are also bugs. I'm willing to switch systems if it fully works. If I can't fix it I'm stuck with an Xt5 that I paid a lot of money for that I can not use for its intended purposes.
