    Hi,

    I am planning to rent a Godox AD600 flash unit [ GODOX PHOTO EQUIPMENT CO.,LTD AD600/AD600B ] to try with HSS for the first time. The lender has the wireless triggers compatible with canon and sony cameras. I have a Nikon (D3200) and want to use off-camera flash and specifically for HSS.

    1. Has anyone here checked if the wireless trigger of Canon or Sony can be used with Nikon?
    2. Do you have any alternate solution if the wireless trigger is not compatible with Nikon?

    I have Yongnuo pocket strobes. Yongnuo's remote trigger works well with both Canon and Nikon. Hoping the same with Godox!

    are you planning on renting the R2 controller as well? that's ultimately what makes it compatible.

    I will get an X1T-C (canon mount)... Trying to ensure still it gives HSS with Nikon camera.

    I'm not sure about whether or not the HSS will work with the Nikon while using a Canon trigger. Seem to recall that my other (R1) trigger would fire from a nikon camera (I shoot canon) because of the single pin in the trigger.

    If I understand correctly, they have a universal controller, it actually figures out what manufacture it's talking to and sends the correct information.

    there's a difference between triggering a flash to fire (no data), and having the full control of the flash/strobe like it's mounted on your hotshoe (data).

    the Flashpoint R2 Pro or Flashpoint R2 TTL Transmitter is required for this. It does look like they are brand specific, so you'd need the Nikon one, but I don't believe the strobe itself matters -- it can accept the single from a Canon or Nikon R2 transmitter.

    it's possible there's no difference between the two -- I may be able to power up my old Canon Rebel and see what happens.

    Hi... Has the camera got anything to do support HSS feature? I tried my Nikon D3200 with Godox X1 (Nikon mount) to trigger AD600 strobe. I was not able to raise my shutter speed above 1/200 s. While googling I found this conversation in some page:

    yeah, the d3200 doesn't support autoFP (HSS). But you should still be able to fire the flash and curtain sync all the way up to 1/4000sec in manual mode.

    HSS and curtain syncing at 1/4000 are two different things.

    HSS is basically continuous light, the flash will rapidly pulse -- your D3200 doesn't support this.

    Curtain synching? Will it eliminate the black bar at the bottom half of my pic. at shutter speeds higher that max. shutter synch speed?
