Sekonic will soon release a ‘GX’ 2.4GHz radio module for its exposure meters, adding the ability to trigger flashes in Godox‘s wireless X system directly from the meter.
DIY Photography reported back in June that Sekonic said they were planning to add a Godox wireless module ‘later this year’ alongside existing support for PocketWizard, Elinchrom and Phottix radios. This followed a survey by Sekonic to assess demand for such a product.
Development of the new module has now been confirmed by an FCC application filed by Godox for the GX module, also known as the GX-SEKONIC-A, which was published last week. The prototype module appears to be have been manufactured in Shenzhen by Godox. Like other Sekonic radio modules it’s a simple grey box that fits into the back of the L-858D-U flash meters.
The lower-spec L-478D series also has the option of PocketWizard, Phottix or Elinchrom control, but this functionality is built into separate versions of the meter (L-478DR-U, L-478DR-U-PX and L-478DR-U-EL, respectively) rather than available as a removable module. It therefore remains to be seen whether Sekonic will also bring out a corresponding L-478DR-U-GX meter.
Pricing and release date of the Sekonic GX module have yet to be officially announced.
