I appreciate receiving your periodic emails. I’ve purchased several Godox flashes & radio units as a result of your postings. I’m now having problems getting them to function properly w/ my A7lll. If I remember correctly there was an English-speaking person who had a site where he provided instructions & other data about Godox flashes. I am not able to find him by Googling. Could you please give me his address? Or any other source of English instruction
Godox’s instructions & English suck.
Any help greatly appreciated,
Hello Jonathan, I’m not sure what website you’re referring to, but if any readers know of one, please him out. But if you tell me what the issue is, I’ll try to help you out.
