Hi all. Your assistance / advice will be greatly appreciated.
I use an XT3, and acquired the Godox 350 and Godox X1T remote trigger. For some reason, the remote trigger will not fire the flash off-camera. The following may be relevant:
When I have both the remote trigger and the flash off the camera, the test button on the remote trigger does fire the flash.
When the flash is on the camera, I works perfectly in all modes.
When the remote trigger is on the camera, it fires the flash when I press the test button on the remote trigger
When I press the shutter it does NOT fire the flash.
When the remote trigger is on the camera, the only flash setting available are Off and Manual.
From the above, it would seem to me tat both the flash and the remote trigger in fact work, but that either:
The remote trigger is not compatible with the XT3; OR
There is some setting on the XT3 that I need to adjust.
Any thoughts or experience with this equipment?
Regards and take care.
I have an issue with triggering off camera flash since I updated the FW of my X-T3 to version 3.20. The flash is only being triggered about 8 out of 10 times, which is very distracting and annoying. I tried with two different flash brands (GODOX trigger + flash, Elinchrom trigger + flash) and see the same problem. I have used the same set-up for about 30 shootings (at ~1000 shots per shooting) last year and never had this issue. I could now observe it during the two shootings I had after I upgraded to 3.20.
The issue doesn't immediately occur. During the first shooting, it happened after about 3 hours. During the second shooting, it happened after about 1 hour. I use the X-T3 with the vertical grip and 3 original NP-W126S batteries. I was suspecting a battery issue during the first shooting and therefore ensured that they were fully charged for the second shooting but it did not solve the issue.
Does anyone have experienced a similar issue?
Thanks and cheers
Is anyone else having this problem?
My XT2 works beautifully with my Godox flashes (two AD200s and one AD600) when my shutter speed is 500 or higher. But if I drop the shutter speed below 500, the flashes stop firing.
I'm using the Godox XPro-F transmitter.
So what I'm really wanting is "Low Speed Sync" so I can use my Godox flashes at speeds like 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, etc.
Why I do not suspect the transmitter or flashes
I can press the test button on the transmitter and the flashes fire
I can put the same transmitter on my X100s and shoot at any shutter speed and the flashes fire successfully
This makes the XT2 my prime suspect.
Under the flash function setting menu, I do have Sync Mode set to AUTO FP(HSS) but I've tried the other settings with no success either (and didn't expect those to help anyway).
I am in single shot mode and not using bracketing or multi-exposure features.
And it doesn't matter if I manually turn off HSS via the menus on the flash units.
Do you have any suggestions I can try next?
Can you see if you are able to shoot and sync at 1/60 using your XT2 and Godox transmitter and flashes?
Any help or suggestions will be thoroughly appreciated!
Just got the new X-S10. I don't think you have a forum for the X-s10 yet. Hopefully this is the right place to post.
I'm confused about how autofocus works. I'm sure it is similar on all X models. Before I bought, I watched tons of videos on youtube about the X-S10 and when they tested the autofocus, they would walk away or towards the camera so you could see the focus adjust.
Now that I got the camera, I'm baffled.

I have only been able to get the XWebcam and XWebcam2 to work on my Macbook Pro )mid 2012, Catalina) with QuickTime Player Capture video without controls of the XWebcam software and with XWebcam/XWebcam2.
I have been able to get it to work with Zoom only. Not FaceTime, not Skype, not Google Meeting. My old Logitech Webcam work with everything also.
4k 60fps 400Mbps means you're using the H265 codec. It's very cpu/gpu intensive. My 2016 MBP struggles to play H265 smoothly but my main editing machine plays them back fine, so this could be the issue you're seeing. Try H264, which will limit you to 200Mbps or maybe create proxies.
