My ef-42 flash just stopped working suddenly in the middle of a family event. The flash will turn on, the test/charge button lights up and I can hear it starting up, but it will not fire. I have used it for about a year. Is it possible that the bulb just burnt out? If so, should I send it in for repair? or just buy a new speedlite? I am looking at the nissan i40, based on recommendations online, but I have no idea really. I have the x-e2.
Hey guys, First post. Admittedly, I'm asking a quesiton I haven't tried for long to figure out as I just got my EF-42 flash dropped off on my lunch break and only got a half an hour to mess around with it. I had it hooked up to my X-T10 and it seemed like my camera's exposure settings (SS and ISO) were the same regardless if the flash was being used or not, obviously causing some over-exposure when the flash was used. A couple indoor portraits had my camera staying at 1/60 ss and 2,500 ISO, again, regardless if the flash was firing or not. If I set the ISO manually, say at 200, the flash seemed to work brilliantly, setting my shutter accordingly. Any tips here before I start to dig in more this evening? Any help is much appreciated!
