Godox Unveils X2 TTL Bluetooth Flash Trigger
A flash trigger can be an invaluable piece of kit for wildlife photographers looking to light scenes in unique, creative ways. The recently announced Godox X2 TTL is designed to make what can be a complicated process easy, with an updated user interface, a large backlit display, and Bluetooth functionality.
“X2 achieves stable, reliable and effective real-time signal transmission which makes it a good choice for photographers who have various lighting demands,” states Godox.
The new trigger has 5 dedicated group setting buttons on top for quick set up, and 3 function buttons alongside the display for fast and efficient control. An adjustment dial has been carefully placed in the left-hand corner of the X2 as to not obstruct the LCD panel, freeing up more space for observing flash settings when in use. The LCD screen, along with the buttons, are backlit – improving usage at night or in low light conditions.
Godox has integrated Bluetooth support into the X2, allowing for you to connect via iPhone or Android smartphones, as well as iPad or Android-based tablets. Users must first download the GodoxPhoto app, which then gives control over flash modes, power output, the modelling light mode, the beeping of Godox flashes, and more – all via a remote device.
The X2 also has an all-new scan setting, where the trigger will automatically detect the optimal channel to use that has the least interference. Additionally, a new hot shoe quick-lock system replaces the typical tightening wheel, meaning faster removal and attaching of the trigger.
- A minimum flash power output of 1/256 and 1/10 step adjustments.
- Complete TTL autoflash support.
- 5 flash groups and 32 different channels.
- 99 wireless ID settings to limit the interference from other nearby systems.
- 1/800s high-speed sync.

The X2 TTL comes in various compatibility models, with the X2T-C supporting Canon, X2T-N for Nikon, X2T-S for Sony, X2T-F for Fujifilm, X2T-O for Olympus and Panasonic, and X2T-P for Pentax cameras.
