    Ok, I will be gentle as possible. I couldn't get through the video because I found myself skipping to get to something about how to use the new Godox with a Fuji system that I just gave up. If you want to grow a YouTube channel stick to the topic and get to it quickly. I wanted to see how the systems work together if they can, or give a demonstration of the settings used, or examples from a photoshoot but I gave up after about 30 seconds of skipping. You may have all that in there but if I have to work that hard, I'm just going to the next video. Editing and retakes are your friend.

    I agree with jonimages. Your first 5 minutes could be deleted with no loss of information. The entire video could be done very well in 5 minutes rather than 13+.

    I was hoping that you found a way to make that AD200 work in HSS with X1 on Fuji.

    Any trigger that just uses the center pin will work. The problem is HSS and TTL are not sent trough the center pin alone.

    Cactus already has the V6 II but apparently very fiddly. I'm still planning on getting it with the RF60X but I may wait a little longer for either the Nissin fw update to enable HSS or Godox if they come out with one.

    Adorama is already taking preorders on a Fuji version of a Godox flash which can act as a trigger. Adorama is a solid player (and the preeminent Godox reseller in the US), so I take this as a solid indication we will have support for Fuji vary soon.

    Hopefully they release a full blown transmitter which can control other Godox flashes in HSS. Wireless TTL would be nice too.
    The flash they are releasing is extremely underpowered.

    I feel the same but the Cactus v6 mkii whilst working is somewhat fiddly.

    I'm surprised that Yongnuo hasn't jumped on the Fuji bandwagon at all.
    I had a Yongnuo CTR-301p 433Mhz transmitters in 2008/2009 for the Sony/Minolta hotshoe mount. And that was when people were questioning whether or not Sony was serious in the DSLR market.

    Id just like to add, the Godox Service and support side are pretty poor. I recently ordered an item and they sent a completely different item to what i ordered. Trying to resolve it is a but of an issue. Id hate for something to go wrong, I dont like the thought of trying to register a repair with them.

    That's one of the reasons I like to buy the Adorama versions of Godox products.

    Hi Lee. Did you have to update any firmware on the transmitter or the AD200 or change any settings on the X-T2 to get it to work?

    Yes you have to change the hot shoe into single pin mode. Have you got one ?
