  1. Conditions: XT-2 firmware 4.40, battery grip, Godox V860 and remote, tethered to Lightroom Classic v13.1 through Fujifilm app, Macbook Pro Ventura 13.6. The camera has started to "hang" after a few shots. By this I mean that the screen goes grey and the camera won't turn off or on. I've tried re-setting the firmware but that doesn't appear to make a difference. The problem appears to be related to when I'm using the flash. It doesn't arise with the same variables but using studio lights. To restart the camera, I had to remove the battery from the camera. After a few shots, the camera hung again. Finally I had to disconnect the camera from the laptop and remove the battery grip. I'd appreciate any thoughts or suggestions on how to resolve this. Thanks in advance, Bronwyn
  2. Hello everyone! I'm looking to purchase a flash for my son artwork photography on a budget. The idea is to take pictures at home (any ideas welcome too) of all his draws and then print them in a book. Any recommendations or suggestions for a good quality yet affordable option? I have an XT-4 with 16mm, 27mm, 18-55mm and 55-200mm. Thank you in advance!
  3. Hi, I am using my XT3 with the EF-X8 flash using a non-Fuji lens in TTL mode: ISO 800 f5.6, shutter speed on A. The pictures come out fine but the shutter speed is only 1/60 sec. I read in the internet that the XT3 can take pictures with flash at 1/250 sec. What adjustments do I have to make to be able to take pictures with flash at 1/250 sec? Thanks
  4. Hi all, I have purchased an X-Pro2 and would like to use it for studio shooting using strobes/flashes most likely with Profoto B1's and an Air Remote. I once read there are certain settings within Fuji cameras that may need activating/deactivating ie. preview exposure. Anyone have some good tips for studio settings, what are you using? Thanks
  5. I bought a Cactus V6 in the hopes of being able to use the delay mode to get a working rear curtain sync with my Fuji X-T1s and X-Pro 2. I'm trying to avoid having to do an optical slave sync. Anyway, with the following set up: X-Pro2, Cactus V6, delay mode set to 990 ms, shutter set to 1 sec, Godox V850 on a Cactus v5 in receiver mode, the flash consistently fires at the beginning of the exposure. The programmed delay seems to be being ignored completely. Has anyone gotten the delay mode to work with a Cactus v6 on a Fuji camera with any set up?
  6. Hi, I'm new to Fuji cameras world and this forum, actually new to digital photography. I still use my Canon FD gears and film for photography and i love it but recently all E6 laboratories closed in my area and i need to use digital cameras for color photos (it's hard to find Pro color negatives here). After some research i find a Fuji camera is that i need, a camera that be similar to film cameras in controls and ergonomic. So i purchased a second hand X-E1 to have an experience and if it be good i will go for better cameras like X-t1. I like to use some of my old gears and already i have a FD convert ring for lenses, i just like to know can i use My Canon Speedlite 199A flash in manual mode with Fuji cameras? http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/companies/canon/fdresources/shared/speedlites/199Aflash/index.htm
  7. Hi all, As the recent owner of a new X100t, and as someone still working their way through the full online manual, I would like some advice on the best settings for using my camera in a bar or club. This is for a potential commission, so it is important to have people posing, and to get some clear photos of the atmosphere and the venue. They could be used in a newspaper so the pictures need to be clear, sharp, and colourful. I have a cheap, exterior flash, but I am apprehensive about using it given the excellent low lighting performance of this camera. What settings would I use? There are a number of built-in filters for softening skin tones too. I would appreciate any expert advice. Many thanks!
  8. anyone know a working alternative for infrared light? my x20 or nissin i40 does not have it and built in infrareds on my fujis is too weak. something like nikons sb910 infrared or nikon sc-29 . let me know, highly appreciate it.
  9. 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!
  10. There was an earlier rumor (rumour for some) to the effect that Metz was about to produce a flash for the XT-1. And then all went quiet. I'm looking for such an animal and wonder where to find it. If not Metz, then who? If now soon, then when?
  11. Hi, I've just been on vacation and took my camera with me, during my trip I noticed that my camera started over exposing my shots in a bad way. Even though the light meter indicated that the photo was correctly exposed the photo would come out completely white. After further tests I realised the problem appeared to be on shutter speeds over 500. Thankfully I switch to the electronic shutter and this worked fine allowing me to keep taking photos for the rest of the trip. Having recently come back I also noticed that the camera fails to trigger my flash when directly connected or via a Cactus trigger. I'm going to contact Fuji tomorrow but I'm interested if anyone else has experienced or heard of these problems? Thanks, Steve
  12. Hi all. I faced a problem and tried to find the solution in internet but failed to find the answer. So may be users of this forum can help me and other Fuji X camera users to find the solution. The problem is: I have Fujifilm X-T1 and Godox Witstro AD 360 Ws. With standard Godox FT-16 transmitter and receiver everything works well. But HSS is not working. Godox recommends to buy special trigger Cells II. So I ordered that transmitter - Godox Cells-IIN, but it is also do not work in HSS mode (I switched Witstro to HHS mode of course). So I would like to ask, if someone uses HSS wireless transmitter|receiver with off-camera flashes or studio strobes supporting HSS? Could you share your experience? update: today an idea came to my head, may be instead of one transmitter Cells II-N i should buy two and use one as transmitter attached to camera hot shoe and another one as receiver attached to flash hot shoe.
  13. Couldn't find this info anywhere: can the X-Pro2 shoot flash in burst (either low or high) shooting mode? The X-T1 gained this feature with the latest firmware update.
  14. Hello everyone, I just got my XT1 graphite and I'm psyched. I wanted to know how to lock the focus without refocusing? on the canon there was an option to lock the refocus. for exmaple you press on the half shutter and then you press on the lock button, and now you can shoot focus locked, up until i release the button. I wanted to see if there as a simular way to first press the AF-L and make it act as a lock and not FOCUS + lock. the only options I found on the XT1 was its to make it AFL on/off or AFL press/release. so how can i get rid of the AF and just keep L? I hope I'm not making it too confusing. Also can someone recommend wireless transmitter for external flash. I used the vello but I keep having misess with the flash syncing.
  15. I just found that the latest firmware for X-T1 / X-T10 can now support 1/250 flash sync. I've tested with Nissin i40, as well as Cactus RF60 with V6 transceiver. It didn't work before, but now it does! I checked the release notes of all previous firmwares, but such update has never been mentioned before. It seems that Fuji hasn't officially announced such update yet, but the feature is there already.
  16. Hi Everyone, I would really like to get the LumoPro 180 Flash and would like to know if anyone has enjoyed this combination the the Fuji Xt-1? Then secondly I'm not yet comfortable with finding both a wireless trigger, nor shoe cord, but would ideally like both. Not interested in Pocket Wizards at that price. Any suggestions as to what I can use or what would or not work with my above combination? Many thanks for your time! Stefan
  17. When I sold my Canon gear a year ago, the one thing I missed was its outstanding flash capability. On full auto, it rendered consistently balanced, excellent exposures. As a friend put it, "Your flash photos don't look like flash photos." When I went Fuji, I had a brief, disappointing affair with the EF-42. I recently put my X-Pro2, 18-55, and my newish EF-X 500 in the hands of a relative with no experience. Full auto, bounce with diffuser, low white ceiling. I'm pretty impressed with the exposures. Shot RAW processed in LR.
  18. Hi, Long term speaking, I will probably get 2 Cactus RF-60 with Cactus trigger to build an easy to use and portable studio kit, but now, I'm searching for a compact TTL flash that I would bring with me almost everytime, combined with the ultra compact FlashQ triggers for off camera situation. I almost ordered the Meike MK-320 this week, but I noticed that the head can't turn 180 degres.... something I like, especially to be able to bounce the light where I want when using on camera flash. I know some people are using this flash on this forum....do you see an issue with this? I was also looking at Nissin i40, but since we can't do firmware update by our own, it's more subject to stop working (I mean some features) when Fuji is realsing a new body or new firmware. Also, I'm in Canada and it seems difficult to find support for this brand....and it's about 400$ CAD...not cheap. Finally, there is also the upcoming Metz M400 that looks promising. It will cost about the same as the Nissin, but at least, we can do firmware update, and they mention that it will support HSS for Fuji... Is there any other option I'm missing? Which one would you buy? At less than 100$ CAD, the Meike sounds like a no brainer compact and light flash, but if I don't like it, it's worth nothing... Note: I own a X-T1 and plans to update to X-T2 this winter... Thanks
  19. New wireless option for Metz. http://www.metz-mecatech.de/en/lighting/flash-units/accessories/wireless-trigger-wt-1-kit.html
  20. Hi! Im new to this but I'm trying to figure out how to use the modeling light och if it is even possible at this stage. I'm currently using: Godox AD360 II (nikon version) with Godox X1-N trigger (in manual mode). I'm not having issues in general but It would be of great help to use the modeling light function to trigger a burst of flashes to see hos my lights fall on the subject. I have tried to map the "depth-of-field preview" as well as "modeling light" but nothing happens when I bush those buttons. Do I need a designated Fujifilm trigger for this function to work with the flashes? Cheers
  21. Hello, for studio work I have Elinchrom D-Lite 4 strobes.. Now I'm looking for outdoor HSS flash system.. I'm really like Elinchroms new deep umbrellas.. Is it worth invest in Nissin i60A strobe units with Air 1 commander? Then I will be able to use mount for umbrella and flash unit...
  22. Hi all! I recently got my new X-T20 and now i´m looking for a suitable flash. After looking around for hours I cannot find any device thats is explicitly declared as fully compatible. I like the nissin i40, Meike MK320 because of the compact size. But I read somewhere that the Meike is not working with the X-T20. Does anybody know any compatible flash? Thanks philippe
  23. 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 David
  24. How do I prevent the camera to change the shutterspeed from what I set with the dial? For example, if I set it to 250 for flash photography, why will it internally change it to 320? What am I doing wrong? Why is it overwriting my settings, if I have everything else set manually? I'm baffled.
  25. Does anyone have this combination and use it? I know 2 EF X-20s used together can be used as Master or Slave. Can an EF X-500 be used as master or slave with an EF X-20. Fuji website states the X-500 will work with the X Pro1, but some features will not. Called Fuji but unable to find which features will not work (possibly RSS) and whether either of the flashes can be a master or slave.
