You can control the modeling light and ready beep with the X1.

Double click CH key to turn ON/OFF Modeling lamp.
C.Fn-07 – Turn remote flash beep Off / On – [– – = OFF] [on = ON]

And the XT32 does not have fewer functions. For one, it supports 16 groups. And some that don't need TTL will switch to it just for the interface.

Thanks, I know that I can control the modeling lamp and beep with the X1C as well.
In my opinion it just isn't really comfortable.

And the 16 groups feature is one that I deem to be easily implemented on the X1C, too.
But I might be wrong about that, since I don't know if there is new hardware needed or just software/firmware.

I am wondering if it would be easier adding TTL to the XT32 or adding the new groups to the X1C...

If that is indeed the case then you are right, of course.
I automatically thought it would support TTL.

But looking at the technical specs it really seems that TTL was omitted from this transmitter.
That's too bad, I really like it that it has more buttons for all the functions (ready beep, modeling light, etc.).
It is interesting that they still have not added a button for 2nd-curtain sync.
(Also, why is the shutter speed range in 2nd-curtain mode so limited with the AD600? The shutter must be in the range 30s-1/30. 1/30 is not really fast enough for my style, 1/10th or 1/5th would be way better.)

Why do they release a new transmitter with less functionality anyway?
Or did I miss something else? (I assume they could easily add more groups to the X1C-T, so I don't think that is a good reason to develop, manufacture and sell another transmitter.)

The speed range for SCS includes your desired 1/10th and 1/5th.

The range is to ensure that the transmitter can send the fire signal before the second curtain starts to close. Most often, SCS is controlled by the camera. This is a hack that overrides the camera setting. That's why it works with cameras that normally will not support SCS with speedlites.

Turned one on and let it set for over an hour. Still on. So don't know how long before it shuts off. I will check on it when I can and report.

[Update]

So apparently mine don't turn off either. When I said something out loud about it my wife popped up "oh, I turned those off when I came to bed".

At least now I know that my unit behaves just as all the others.

Thanks for that explanation.

And yes, the fraction notation obviously confused me. I feel dumb. :cry:
Thank you for correcting me.

The thing that's confusing is that they only place we seem to use the fractions is when writing shutter speeds in a forum post.

It's not "less functionality," but rather different functionality to suit different needs.

The X1 transmitter is fine if you want to see the settings simultaneously for three or more groups — and actually it can only display three groups at one time, while some transmitters from other manufacturers can show four or five. But the X1 also has a rather crowded and fiddly interface. It's not horrible, but it's also not perfect. What we already need is an X2 to improve upon the X1. It needs more buttons and/or a better menu system. However, this transmitter will do fine for now, and across three different brands of cameras.

Meanwhile, there are photographers who want something simpler and more direct to operate than the X1. These photographers tend to like all-manual controls, and having a more analog style of interface is a pleasure for them. They may also be shooting NON- Canon/Nikon/Sony cameras, so this XT16 and XT32 will be right up their alley. Their needs are different from your own. So a simpler trigger is fantastic and enjoyable for what we like to do. :-)

Bravo for Godox for continuing with that line of triggers.

Can each group turned on/off individually on XT32 Gr mode if using pre 2012 Canon camera?

There is no group mode in the XT32 that is a X1 feature

I see. So it's just like FT16 where all groups always fire if we push test button?
