Re-read my post. It seems a bit hostile; that is not what I meant. I'm just trying to say, "I AM CHEAP!"

:D

Interesting. I looked at these at B&H ($85). The site is a bit ambiguous about compatibility with Canon's visible light control system. Do these units respond to a Canon optical master (80D, 580EX II, 550EX)? Do these units control (3-group) Canon slaves (550EX, 580EX II)?

Having just dumped my YN622 gear for incompatibility issues, I am fully committed to Canon's optical control system. Buying 1 of these may be feasible (under-powered compared to 550EX), but replacing all 5 of my current units makes no sense, to me.

EDIT:
Curiously, the B&H site mentions (or seems to) optical master/slave capabilities. The Godox site does not. Odd.

Wireless only works in the godox/flashpoint family of strobes and flashes... previously used versions at Adorama are $60.

Canon has no real equivalent to this flash. The v860ii and tt685 are the canon equivalents though.

Okay fellas no need to argue here. I received some good recommendations and made a decision. Wireless compatibility wasn't even something I mentioned I needed.

It might be best to start a new thread to debate budget wireless flash systems.

Thanks again for all the help.

Glad you figured it out.

Nobody is arguing here, and since you brought up 3rd party, different 3rd party options were outlined, with some having added benefits beyond what you asked for, and beyond what Canon offers (ie. wireless).

Others might be in the same situation and can benefit as well from the discussions. Additionally it is good to bring up wireless, because many that worry about lighting end up down the road of mixed flashes and strobes and wireless triggering, and it can save some hassles buying into that protocol early, rather than selling off old gear and buying again. ;)

Also we already have a couple large lighting/flash/wireles​s threads out there now, a couple are several hundred pages long! :D

No. Unlike the TT685 or V860II, the TT350 has no smart optical capability in any flavor. The TT685 and V860II only have "smart" optical master/slave capability in the Canon, Nikon, and Sony flavors (not the Fuji or ยต4/3).

Do these units control (3-group) Canon slaves (550EX, 580EX II)?

Well, it can be an RF master to three groups in Godox's X system, but whether or not the 550EX can respond to the TTL/HSS/power control signalling via an X1R receiver is a possible issue. Just me, but I speculate that it's the Canon camera menu control over the smart optical wireless system that's been reverse engineered as a signalling protocol, and nearly all the pre-Mk II speedlights, which don't do camera menu communication, don't seem to work as well as those that do (430EXII/580EXII and later models).


I'm a woman. I shoot with a Fuji X100T, Panasonic GX-7, Canon 5DmkII, and 50D. flickr stream (external link)
