    Re: Nikon Z6/7 Accessories Recommendations Please!

    I recently purchased a Godox X2TN flash Trigger. It is the newest Godox trigger. It is also the only one that they have tested on th Z6 and Z7. I had the Godox Pro1 Trigger and it was not compatible.

    Dan, is the X2TN the one that triggers the controller mounted AF assist light that works with Z bodies? There were reports that with a firmware update it worked. I could certainly benefit from that if it works. I have been very happy with my Yongnuo 622tx and 5 622n transceivers but would switch if the assist light works. I have a couple of the 968 Yonguo flash that have the video light and 4 channel controller and receiver built in. Of my 6 flashes, 3 are SB900 and the other 3 are Yongnuo so I would have to get 5-6 receivers to switch.

    I have not confirmed it yet, but it is supposed to. It is a different configuration. I will let you know when I get it tested in the next day or so.

    Hi. Got a sb-300. Small and works very well for what I am using it especially for traveling (itís basically just to overcome situations where an integrated flash would help).

    The Eye-cup is the only accessory I have seen that I want....that and the Kalt hand strap that I use on all my cameras and fits the little Z6. It takes all stressential from handholding durine long events when using a 70-200 02 15-30 2.8 Tamron

    Stan, I tried the Godox X2TN trigger in low light and it does not trigger the inferred AF Assist on the trigger. It does work for every other situation but it fails like all the rest of the lights with regard to mirrorless.

    Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I have a terrible memory and sometimes it is worse than others. I also wish I had better news.

    I'm a little late to this one, but I too have tried a couple L-Brackets for my Z6. 1st was a Kirk, and it was "OK".

    I found one that I REALLY like, from SmallRig. It has an outstanding pinky support and has an optional FTZ mount which makes it rock-solid. Its also easy to swap batteries with the plate install - as it should be.
