Problems with generic radio trigger
I was having some problems using triggers last night during a studio session (fortunatley I was shooting still life so wasn't holding a model up!), my generic (i.e. any camera) Godox radio triggers weren't firing my strobes using my 6D. The 'test' button on the transmitter was firing fine, and I popped the trigger on my Fujifilm body to test it and no issues there.
After several tries wiggling it, cleaning contacts etc. I popped it onto my 5DIII and same problem! Pretty annoyed, I got an old school PC cord out of my bag and wired the strobe to the 5DIII - no luck. I then got my Yongnuo TTL radio triggers out and they worked a charm (one transciever on the camera and one connected to the PC cord).
Is there a setting or something that stops the hotshoe / sync socket 'firing' if it doesn't detect a TTL strobe connected?
Was on M using ISO 100, 1/125 and f8 - so fairly standard settings.
