Re: Flash assist with godox x2t on Nikon Z6ii

To expand on vockman’s correct answer, mirrorless cameras do not use the red filtered photo sites on the sensor for AF. Therefore, a red light output by the flash is not seen by the camera during AF. For that reason, the AF assist light is turned off when the flash is mounted on a mirrorless camera.
