Slide the AF-assist beam switch to ON, and the AF lighting is allowed to output. Nope. The Godox V1 is their entry into the round head speedlight market, and it … Unless I’m doing something wrong the only mode I can set to is 2nd curtain. Would value your advice.

Godox AF assist beam not working with Sony a7rIII and a7III, If you believe there are incorrect tags, please send us this post using our, Re: Godox AF assist beam not working with Sony a7rIII and a7III, Re: Godox AF assist beam now working with Sony a7rIII. Looks like it doesn’t work with canon 580 EXII, I think I tried every possible option and it doesn’t work;(. Your example of the Opteka flash with LA-EA4 works is because that adapter has a complete SLT PDAF system built into it (bypassing the MILC on sensor AF system), so a traditional IR assist beam would be seen by the adapter's AF system. I use with a6300 and it’s always fire pre-flash every shot on TTL even in manual mode. HSS will sync to max shutter speed of camera. Like what I posted. 1. Thanks Brian, the only choice for me is buy the Sony flash system or change to godox. Could it be an AF-C vs AF-s deal? I do not like to use the On-camera Flash to trigger the HVL because if the flash is not on the sight field, it will not trigger. Nope. * ATG Tribrid TTL radio switching. Hello, I just tried to search any info available as I’ve bought godox x1 TTL for sony camera. like the ones mentioned here: I find both to be quite a bit more complicated than I would like compared to my impact and pocket wizard triggers, but they do what I need them to do and at a reasonable price. I have a Sony a58 with wireless flash. Bear in mind that the faster you go the more flash output you clip, meaning the flash exposure is greatly reduced at 1/8000 but not at 1/320, etc…. I keep hearing conflicting reports on the X1Pro-S. I’m planning to order a few more as well as a couple AD600 Witstros. Thanks. Hello Brian we are confused. It’s tricky with other brands. With the release of the HVL-45RM and HVL-60RM, Sony added an LED AF assist on the flashes, which the camera will trigger. The same can be said to Canon 600EX-RT II and Nikon SB-910. The unit I ordered off eBay to test has not shown up yet. Stick to one brand. No. Good travel cameras should be small, versatile, and offer good image quality. No assist with either of these combinations. I have the latest firmware ver 1.8. Basic setup #1: Powered up a TT685S as wireless slave - got correct exposure on test shot but no red light. To add Fn-10 in custom function settings. I kno the a5000 does not support hss and has no hot shoe, just wondering how this would connect and would it catch the flash at 1/160? I could well have turned that off. The fact that the Opteka's assist light works for some combinations is mostly confusing, but, since the behavior did change between the A7 and A7II we know that Sony had some awareness about flash-based assist lamp issues. Is it TT685 the only godox flash got this function, how about TT600? Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Hi Brian, Does the TT685s work with the A9?. Thanks. The belief is that since the AF is performed at the sensor, the AF assist beam would never be seen by the AF system due to the filter. Hi Brian, I am thinking about TT685S flash as the second one (slave) having sony a7ii and sony flash Sony HVL-F43M connecting by Nissin Air receiver/trigger. 1. I will be trying it out tonight. I see that when you add a lens adpter like a sigma MC-11 You're AF illuminator, does not work and I can understand this as the lens attached to the adapter will get in the way of the beam. 5. Just be sure to update to the latest camera firmware. The Reason & Solution of Not Triggering in Godox 2.4G Wireless Sony MIS (Sony’s crappy hotshoe) = direct fits • Powered by 4 x AA batteries With the release of the HVL-45RM and HVL-60RM, Sony added an LED AF assist on the flashes, which the camera will trigger. Godox TT685S Flash kits for Sony Mirrorless Cameras – Available on eBay & Amazon are the latest TTL HSS flash system to support Sony cameras with Multi-Interface hotshoe. Would this work with the Sony a5000? For those cameras, I would recommend either Sony HVL-F45RM, HVL-F60RM or Phottix Mitros+ TTL Tranceiver Flash for Sony Multi-Interface Shoe Cameras. Think of it as your cameras built in orange AF-assist on steroids. Hello sir, can you please sugges me what to buy. The fact that the LA-EA2 and LA-EA4 use A57 AF modules means that Sony should have enabled AF assist with (D)SLR flashes from day 1 when these adapters are in use.
