    Here are pics of the new Godox XPro trigger, curtesy of Edward Tang of Cheetahstand. Expect the first versions to be CaNikon, we m43 users will probably be last with the fuji release.

    Glad the photo stayed, Edward deleted his post saying that he was going to let Godox make the announcement.
    I'm looking forward to it, as it looks easier to operate than the x1t. Honestly, I'd really just like a updated +HSS version of the XT-16 as it's just so dang easy to use and has more group options.

    He's updated it again:
    upload_2017-9-11_11-52-23.

    upload_2017-9-11_11-54-1.

    upload_2017-9-11_11-54-11.

    Looks good , but I'd miss the passthru hotshoe.

    More Info
    FLASHPOINT R2 Pro / GODOX XPro-C – TTL Transmitter Announced | FLASH HAVOC

    I love this part:
    TCM FUNCTION
    Another significant feature now provided with the Pro transmitter is the new TCM function.

    TCM stands for TLL > Convert > Manual.

    This is Godox and Flashpoint’s version of Hybrid or Fusion TTL, where its now possible to take a shot in TTL mode to attain a correct exposure very quickly, and then at the press of a button convert those TTL power levels to now display on the transmitter as Manual power levels.

    The manual power levels can then be further refined, and provide consistent exposures for further shots in the same set up and environment.

    The TCM function is potentially a huge advantage for people operating in a fast paced environment, allowing a base setting to be gained very quickly without manually metering lights. Switching to manual the individual power levels can then be refined as needed, and exposures remain constant for subsequent images.

    The first comment made by FlashHavoc is interesting. Leads me to believe that another Adorama version was/is in the works, but that that version directly influenced the Godox one. Can't wait to get my hands on one.

    I'd be interested to hear how any of you make out with the new transmitter.

    Interesting, though I'm not sure how much it improves over X1T. The X1T is very easy to use. Although it would be nice when the camera is mounted on a tripod. But I have not an issue with bending down to make changes.

    While the TCM sounds nice, I not sure how much someone would really get from it. And will it work if you have both TTL with FEC adjustments and manual flashes set up. If it works as expected, that would be great. But then I can't think of lot of times when I might use it.

    After using the X1T now for a while i find it to be a little hard to read at times and somewhat fiddly, certainly does the job though. Just based on the pictures for fully off camera setups the new Pro just looks like it will be easier to read and less fiddly.
    I see that both would be useful and i'll keep the X1T for the times i use the FL50 on camera with the two V860's off camera

    I honestly don't like the x1t very much at all, i only picked it up to see if it was more consistent with my GX8 than the xt16 and tt350, which it thankfully is. But the xt16 (and older ft16) is such an easier trigger to use!

    Hi Guys,

    Will these triggers work with the EM10 Mk1 or will I need to trick the system with a FL-600R or something similar?

    Thanks

    I don't believe the original EM10 is supported, but neither is my GX8. Works fairly well for On/Off Camera TTL. HSS in manual mode off camera is finicky, but still works fairly well. On of the things to remember is this is a fairly new system, M43 support has only been out for a few months now, and full cross platform TTL/HSS is a fairly new feature at that. There will be bugs, but Godox is fairly good at getting firmware out and updating their gear. Though it is also worth noting that we m43 users are probably at the bottom of the priority vs the other brands and even then it will likely be focused on newer cameras first.

    The x1t works with my em10 mk i just fine. (As do the tt350 and tt600 [on and off camera])
