Need help if possible
I have the new Nikon D500 a 360 flash well two of them the new 360 plugin and the new Adarama R2-N same as the X1-N so a full 2.4g system.
Problems first off the flash trigger test button on the R2-N dose not work at all the red light lights up and the red light lights up on the flash plugin but no test fire.
For normal shooting i do have it working but one of the main reasons i got all this was for the HSS.
Next huge problem i set the 360 to HSS set my Nikon camera to Auto FP that is how Nikon dose it for HSS.
Take a shot and i get no flash and what is worse the camera locks up with a ERR on the screen and is dead the only way i can get it to come back is to take the battery out and put it back in and when i turn it back on i can hear the mirror drop back down so it seems it is locking up with the mirror up it makes a few sounds that dont sound good..
When the R2 trigger is not on the camera i can shoot in the Auto FP mode with no problem but as soon as the R2 is put back on and i take a shot it kills the camera every time.
Any clue on how to fix this before i send it all back?? Have a shoot Thursday i wanting to do HSS on.
Thanks for any help
I had occasional ERR messages on my D5 with version V14 firmware installed on the transmitter, but they went away after installing V15. V15 firmware can be found at: http://www.godox.com/EN/Download.html.
My D5 is set to 1/250 (Auto-FP) per the instructions. There's a known under-exposure issue at 1/250, so you will want to avoid that specific shutter speed until they (hopefully) get it fixed.
If you have the new 360, it comes with a built-in 2.4ghz receiver that auto-switches to HSS when used with the R2 trigger. It actually switches to HSS at 1/250, and that's why we're getting under-exposures at that particular shutter speed. All other shutter speeds are okay.
If the light isn't firing, confirm that the Channel is the same on the R2 an 360. Also make sure the wireless 2.4ghz radio icon is showing on the 360.
