Flashpoint Zoom r2 I believe it's the TT685c. However I just bought the Zoom Li-on(v860iic) when Adorama had it for $110 which I have not taken out of the box yet. So I do own both now.

So TT685 atop a 6d firing AND transmitting to AD180(r2 -> non-r2 receiver set to B) & SL360(r2->non-r2 receiver set to C)

I am trying to remember if I had ever attached the flash to my 1Ds3 that day.

Are you able to replicate the problem now in a more controlled environment?

As far as I know the only difference between the TT685C and the V860IIC is their batteries - all camera communication and functioning should be the same.

I'd start by trying both flashes on the various camera bodies you have available, and trying to determine whether the problem is repeatable or erratic, and whether it is tied to only only flash, or only one body.

Owen.

Their features may be the same but they have different circuit boards and firmware so there may be an issue with one and not the other.

FWIW:

The notes with the recently-released firmwares on godox.com indicate that:

The X1T-C (v. 19) adds compatibility with the 5D Mark IV and the 80D.

"1. To support Canon 5D Mark IV camera.
2. To support Canon 80D camera. "


And the new V860IIC firmware (v. 1.4) says this:

"1.Compatible with X1T​‐N (for Nikon) and X1T​‐S  (for Sony) flash trigg​er. 
2.To repair the Auto‐o​ff function in the wir​eless  SLAVE mode. "

Guess now I have to go buy a 5DIV now to try it out...

Yes, and the documentation that comes with the most recent firmware for the V860II-N references Canon. Godox has something reversed, and I don't know if it's the firmware or the corresponding documentation.

It sounds like maybe they have just improved how the Canon flash works when triggered by a Nikon or Sony transmitter, and similarly how the Nikon V860II works with a Canon or Sony transmitter.

?

It looks like Godox have added the alternate Canon / Nikon / Sony radio slave modes to each of the V860II, like was done previously with the AD360II.

Is there any comprehensible documentation of this alternate mode somewhere?

Nope :-)

Though if you have a selection of Canon, Nikon, or Sony transmitter/master units, you should see the radio slave mode on the flash automatically changing to match the transmitter unit being used.

The AD600B/BM and AD360II already have this auto sensing radio slave mode for Canon Nikon and Sony. Godox just need to update the speedlites.

Do any of the resident Godox cognoscenti know whether the AD360II will ever get a firmware with the same GR mode capabilities as all the other TTL-capable transmitters in the X system (i.e V860II; X1T)

I've only tonight unboxed the 360IIC I bought ages ago, and am now imagining use cases where I could use it on-camera as a Master and would like to be able to trigger some dumb TT600s scattered around a room.

Thanks.

Owen.

Im looking at the godox v860ii or the tt685. Is the price difference worth getting the 860s ... only real difference i read is the lithium ion battery vs aa ... any insight would be great. Looking to pick up 3 flashes

After experiencing the lithium ion speedlite flash, I will never go back to using AA operated speedlites. The price difference is absolutely worth it.

Hi, No expert but have 3 AD360's and no way would I trust the hotshoe mount of any camera to hold them safe, just my opinion but they are to heavy to hot shoe mount.

Many Thanks,
Russell.

The lithium ion batteries are totally worth it, never again am I going back to AA's.

I agree with the consensus, loving the built in li batteries.

However you are correct that in every other way they are the same flash.
