    I am also interested in Godox A1, but I am concerned that Amazon user rating is not good.
    Thank you.
    I have had no problems. I'm new. Don't shoot thousands of digital shots, so I don't tax them so much. Robert Hall on YouTube is great resource for details, test results, comparisons. And, their system is becoming huge.

    Question about flash photography with a Chamonix

    If any of your shutters give you a sync option, you want "X Sync." That is for strobes. The other setting that is sometimes there is for flashbulbs. The other nice thing is that leaf shutters, like large format lenses are mounted in, sync at every speed so you don't have to worry about the shutter outrunning the strobe.

Your meter must be set to FLASH mode, not ambient.

    Flash is controlled not by the lens, but by the shutter.

    I don’t get what you’re saying. Is that not exactly what I wrote?

    Good thing we were never talking about flash bulbs, then.

    Yes, I know that Flash is controlled by the shutter.
    I was wondering what type of flash(Nikon-compatible, or Canon-compatible, or Sony-compatible.. etc) to use for 4x5 lenses.

    I checked my lenses, some don't have a T, but they have a PC Sync terminal.
    Can I shoot with the flash connected to this lens?
