Sekonic GX module adds Godox control from flash meters

An FCC application shows the GX radio triggering module, which will enable wireless control of Godox flashes from Sekonic light meters.

Godox GX-Sekonic-A radio module

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.
