Can anyone advise the optimum off-camera flash and triggers that will work with the GFX 50s. I have a Yongnou YN560 TX trigger that will fire an off camera YN 560 speedlight but the speedlight will not work directly on the camera.


Any advice or suggestions welcome. Views also welcome on the EF-X500 - will it work and can it trigger the Yongnous in controller mode?


Thanks and Regards

I have tried the Cactus system and their flash-gun does work on the X-T2 and GFX 50S directly on camera as well as remotely. So I talk here of the Cactus V6 II trigger and receivers and the Cactus RF60X flash units. All are easily upgraded by firmware

and I am v. happy with them. However, the gun is larger than I am used to, and the system when used remotely takes 12 'AA' batteries! Not used to that either. However they do what they promise and in all probability would trigger your YN 560 also.

Godox works well for me.
