How to connect GODOX SK300II to EOS R7

I'm trying to set up a studio at work and I can't figure out how to connect the strobe to the R7.  I'm open to any suggestions - manual or otherwise.  If I can connect the two manually, I guess I need a cord?  Help! 🙂

Greetings,

Let me get some eyes on this question for you.  I'm not real big on third party flashes with Canon bodies.  I'll ping some folks so you can get some help

If there's a PC terminal you can use that to fire the strobe. When it comes to 3rd Party E-TTL strobes who knows if it is fully compatible. Manual strobes only require a signal to fire nothing else to make it work.

You probably need the AD-E1 multi-function hot shoe adapter. That will convert the multi-contact fingers to the standard center contact + 4 pins.

The EOS R7 has the older 5 pins for compatibility with older speedlites. All multi function hot shoe cameras have those 5 pins for legacy speedlites. EXCEPT for the EOS R50 it requires the AD-E1 hot shoe adapter. Other cameras require the adapter for weather sealed speedlites.

With the Godox flash system, you have a choice of connectivity via a flash-synch cord or via Godox Radio triggers.

The flash-head SK300ii May have a specific radio transmitter/transceiver combination.

Although ‘most’ Godox radio triggers operate across their flash range on the 2.4ghz band.

you just need to decide on which radio trigger set you want to use based on your budget, the features available and the type of control that best suits you.

So, yes - your flash head MUST be connected some how to your camera.

Many seem to use this:- Godox X2T.

(I personally use the X-Pro). Just make sure you get the the Godox triggers that match the SK300ii.

on YouTube, there are various vids that show connectivity options for your flash head.

The synch cord option is the cheapest and undoubtably easiest quick-fix option for you.
