Hopefully someone can help me.
I have Canon 6D with Godox V860 II mounted on. I have another Godox V860 I with XTR-16s on a lightstand. I want to use them in TTL and control ratio.
Is that possible and if it is how do I set it up?
Thanks a lot

The XTR-16(s) does not do TTL and is only there to control power setting and triggering.

If the flashes support optical communication (master/slave) then it should be doable.

Or you get yourself a X1-R then you can take of your XTR-16s and control and trigger the V860-I.

This a EXCELLENT page that give you all the possibilities and more:

I have X1-R. Didn't know it does TTL. I'll try that.
Thanks

If you pick up an X1C, you can then have both flashes off the camera, just $40 or so more. Or the Xpro for $70. :)

Sell the YN units and XTR16 to recoup that cost back.

Uh... the V860 (Mark I) doesn't have a built-in radio transceiver like the AD360II does. It needs an XTR16s to be triggered from an X1T, too, and communication will not include TTL, whether the master is an X1T, XPro, XT16, or XT32, because the XTR16s isn't capable of communicating it. The OP would still have to swap out the V860I for a TT685/V860II.

An X1R or YN-622, however, can be used on the flash foot, and that will include TTL communication from an X1T/Xpro

I tried it with X1-R and it works. A bit erratic but it works.
Thanks guys.

Uh, the V860 can be attached to the X1R (that the TS said he had), the V860 II has RF built in, and then you add the X1C to the camera... You don't need the XTR or YN.

I presume we are in agreement, and I have no idea for the retort to my reply, you basically repeated what I just said.

TS needs the X1R for the V860-I.

I appreciate it when this topic does not more unclear by more discussions.

Looks like there are 2 of you that actually need to read through all the replies, eh? :)

Yeah, missed that, was focusing on the initial post where it sounded like the OP only had the Tx unit. [facepalm]
