Re: ETTL NOT WORKING WITH GODOX X PRO

Hi , I bought few days ago a Godox xpro transmiter ( for my sony a73 camera )and a godox x1 receiver ( for canon ) in order to control my yongnuo speedlight ( canon version). The combination works fine on manual mode but doesn't work on TTL. Does anyone had the same issue, if yes what could be the problem ?

Thanks

The Godox X1R receivers do not do cross-brand TTL. Only the built-in transceivers in the full-sized Godox TTL-capable speedlights (TT685, V860II, V1) can do this [and only if there's a specific firmware update for the combination being used].

If you need cross-brand TTL support for legacy speedlights, the only system I know of that can do this is the Cactus X-TTL system with the V6 ii transceivers. But you won't have access to any larger-than-speedlight or on-camera TTL Cactus speedlights in the system.

This is why most people will ditch their legacy gear when moving to Godox and just get TT685 or V860II speedlights instead.
