Only a few days ago, some eagle-eyed folks spotted that Canon had removed the universal flash pin on their lower end DSLRs. Now, Godox has responded with new firmware updates to take the missing pin into account. Most of Godox’s most popular items for Canon now have compatibility with the Canon EOS 1500D/2000D/Rebel T7, EOS 3000D/4000D/Rebel T100.
Many thought that the Godox X1T line of triggers would simply die off once the Godox XPro had been released. But it was not to be. Too many people want that passthrough hotshoe and they’ll never give it up in favour of the XPro, no matter how much more efficient the workflow is.
Godox appears to have listened to this feedback, and is launching the Godox X2T. It’s a new trigger based on the original Godox X1T style design, but with buttons to select specific groups and built-in Bluetooth for smartphone power control. Rob Hall had the chance to have a bit of a play with one at WPPI and grabbed a few photos.
