Introduction

The Godox XPro-C flash trigger is top of the range when it comes to Godox TTL controllers for their radio X wireless system and it’s definitely my favourite since it’s easy and quick to use due to the 5 separate group buttons down the left side and the 4 function buttons below the display. No more scrolling through menus to change a speedlite setting. It’s large LCD display makes it a pleasure to use.

You can use the controller with Canon speedlites by attaching a separate Godox X1R-C radio receiver.

An interesting new feature is the TCM transform function that can covert the TTL flash value into the equivalent power setting in Manual mode.

Compatibility

The Godox X1T-C is compatible with most Canon EOS cameras and can be used as an on-camera transmitter to control any Godox flash that uses the X radio system (AD600 / AD 360 II-C / AD200 / V860 II / TT685C / TT600 / TT350C

The transmitter also works with the Godox X1R-C radio receiver when attached to a compatible speedlite such as the Canon 600EX-RT / 600EX II-RT / 580EX II / 430EX II or the Godox V860 II

To work with the Godox AD360-C you’ll need to use a XTR-16 receiver
