    1. Wow, fantastic Brian and thank you … you made my week in posting this! The Godox 360 (Adorama’s FlashPoint) has proven to be the solution to all of my lighting needs. I’m fine working manually but especially with macro work in the field TTL will be a game-changer.

      Do you have information as to whether this new unit requires the Sony a7x to be in Wireless mode? The standard Godox trigger does not and the exposure occurs instantly, but my experience (as also confirmed by Minox) has been that Sony’s Wireless mode introduces a slight delay, not ordinarily of concern but something which becomes problematic when shooting macros of active insect subjects.

      Planning to move to this TTL in any case, just curious. Thanks again!

      1. It was just announced and I’ve not seen Godox X1S, but if it works like other flash triggers, you’s want to put the camera in Fill-flash mode. Godox indicated that receivers will be built into new flashes. I’m not certain if they are making add-on receivers for existing flashes.

    2. I know they have X1 receivers for Canon and Nikon. So it is reasonable to expect an X1S receiver for Sony which should trigger any miShoe/Sony flashes. I’ve been scouring for more info because I’m heavily invested in the Godox system (all manual ATM though) and interested to know what exactly they will be releasing. I have learned the X1S and the TT685S (the Sony AAA powered TTL flash) will remotely control manual as well as TTL flashes. No on is certain whether the Sony version will allow 5 groups like the Nikon or 3 groups like the Canon.

      They had some initial problems with the batteries but the Lion flashes are a game changer. Consistent output, power, and recycle time is so nice I can’t image going back!

    3. Thanks for the news !!! Now i think i’m gonna wait before buying the Nissin Di700A , with ttl and hss i think this is gonna be a very popular solution for Sony users

    4. Brian. I wonder if the AF assist lamp will be triggered by the Sony A7 series cams. Think that is all that cam be missing. Rest looks good.
