Godox have released the much anticipated XPro, TTL and HSS enabled radio transmitter for their 2.4Ghz flash system.
And the Flashpoint R2 Pro branded version are available now from Adorama for $69.00. In Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm, Olympus/Panasonic, and Pentax versions.
With a large clear dot matrix LCD screen displaying all 5 groups simultaneously, as well as 5 individual group buttons, the XPro’s interface now provides a huge improvement over the previous X1T transmitters.
The XPro transmitter will fire and control all of the lights in the Godox X / Flashpoint R2 – 2.4GHz Radio System. Providing full TTL and Remote Manual power control for 5 Groups of lights, including HSS.

The XPro transmitter now provides the ability to work with up to 5 groups of lights A-B-C-D-E, in a mixed environment where TTL and Manual groups can be used together. And individual groups can now be easily switched On and Off.
NOTE – Pre-2012 Canon cameras only allow TTL in groups A, B, & C. Groups D & E are manual only.
As well as the option of controlling up to 16 Groups in Manual mode (A-F & 0-9), corresponding with the older XTR-16/s style radio receivers.
With dedicated individual group buttons, adjusting each group is now very fast and simple compared to the previous X1T transmitters.
And for people who may prefer a single group style display, at the press of the Magnify Button the XPro transmitter also provides the option of switching back and forth from Multiple Group Display to a larger Single Group Display showing more details.

Another significant feature introduced with the XPro transmitters is the new TCM function.
TCM stands for: TLL–Convert–Manual.
With TCM its now possible to take a shot in TTL mode to attain an initial exposure very quickly, and then with the press of a button convert those TTL power levels to now display on the transmitter as Manual power level settings.
The TCM function is potentially a very big 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.
ZOOM CONTROL & MENU
Other new features include a flash Zoom control screen, now allowing each group to be set individually.
As well as a large new graphic Custom Function Menu (see the full C.Fn list here).
The Xpro transmitters have now updated to the USB-C style port for firmware updates.
And once again provide a 2.5mm sync port.
AF ASSIST LIGHT
The XPro transmitters again feature a built-in AF Assist light. Currently using the same light pattern as the previous X1T transmitters.
And again a regular screw locking foot is used. And power is via 2 regular AA batteries.
The AF Assist light has its own dedicated switch, alongside the main Power switch.
