Our Verdict

The Godox XPro-S TTL Wireless Flash Trigger is a game-changer for photographers seeking a seamless and efficient flash trigger system.

However, this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the increase in wireless features and overall versatility provided by the XPro-S.

This trigger is designed to work seamlessly with a wide range of Godox products, ensuring that photographers can expand their lighting setup with ease, including the VING V860III.

Through the test the Godox XPro-S proved to be highly reliable, maintaining a strong wireless connection with a range of up to 100 meters. In this test this distance give or take a couple of meters did seem reliable although the reliability of the connection at this distance does take a dip.

Realistically this distance just ensures that performance is generally solid and minimizes the risk of misfires or lost connections, which can be crucial during fast-paced shoots or when working with multiple flashes.
