Godox announces affordable XPRO-C wireless flash trigger for Canon users
Godox has unveiled the new XPRO-C, an affordable wireless flash trigger compatible with all of the company’s X1-series 2.4GH lamps and flashes, and built specifically for Canon cameras. The new trigger seems to be competing with both Canon and Nissin, whose Air 10s trigger features some similar features at a steeper price.
The XPRO-C supports manual, high-speed sync, and TTL control alongside TTL-Convert-Manual (TCM) functionality. The TCM function enables users to meter flashes in TTL and then switch to manual mode; the settings are auto-adjusted to maintain an equivalent output.
User control is simplified via a large dot matrix LCD able to display five groups alongside five physical group buttons. Selecting a specific group pulls up additional information on the LCD, according to Godox, and there’s support for multiple custom functions. High-speed sync ranges up to 1/8000, manual flash power from 1/1 – 1/256, and there’s support for X1/R2 receiver flashes in up to 16 groups.
The XPRO-C (also called Flashpoint R2 Pro in the US) has a retail price of $80 and is already available for pre-order online.
