  1. From the album: Fujifilm X100F

    My brand new Fuji camera arrived yesterday, X100F :-) This photo is taken with Fujifilm X-T1, 35mm lens.

  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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...
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. New wireless option for Metz. http://www.metz-mecatech.de/en/lighting/flash-units/accessories/wireless-trigger-wt-1-kit.html
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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!
  17. 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?
  18. Hi. I have a question regarding flash sync speed on an X-T1. I'm using a Canon speedlite. I know the sync speed is at 180 but I did some tests at 250 and I didn't see any issues. At 500 I started seeing a darker bottom half with a gradual fading to properly exposed. Has anyone else done this successfully or am I missing something? Consider me an intermediate photographer, comfortable shooting on manual with a manual flash but definitely still learning the nuances. Thanks for any help anyone can give here.
  19. Hello, I have a Canon 430 EX II flash but I did not have the courage to put it on my X-E2 for testing :-) Does anyone know if it will work without a problem? I did use it with a wireless trigger and it worked. Can't really figure out the manual settings at this point (still learning this pretty hard craft) but it did fire. Thanks!
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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!
