    I have a new Nissin air receiver and transmitter set which all work fine including in HSS mode for Nissin speedlite but, if connected to a Jinbei HD 600v which is also hss capable, the flash, is triggered but is not recorded at shutter speed in excess of 1/250 fom my A7r2.
    This is the same light sold by Adorama as their flashpoint explore 600 which is also sold by them as hss capable.
    Have you any experience with this or any suggestion apart from return it all, or another hss sony fit trigger system that will work?
    regards

    Did you press the two buttons to enable HSS mode?

    ok I have got this working. returned the Nissin kit it only works with Nissan lights

    1 x 600 battery pack monoblock light sold under various names. Jinbae, Adorama's own brand, godox ,ect, plus 1 z godox x1 transmitter

    Set the godox transmitter to out put through it's hot shoe and fit the the lights remote.
    Set the camera to any flash mode EXCEPT wireless then the godox triggers at shutter speeds in excess of 1/250
    Fit the lights own transmitter in the Godox hotshoe and the light will either hyper sync at full power
    or
    of the light has the facility for HSS then at variable power settings.

    Good to hear that. Godox is the way to go! I sold my Nissin after I got the TT685s. The cross-system Godox lights are so easy to use.

    Im all for the Godox too. So far Ive got 2 TT685 and a X1 trigger and can't wait to be able to get me a couple of AD360II :thumbup:
    Struggling with hss, sun overpowering and sharpness in action shots though. Here both units came into play @ full power.
