Fujifilm Finepix S1 Pro and EF-X500

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the Finepix S1 and EF-X500 flash are compatible?  I am addicted to using this as my every-day carry camera.  It's shockingly good, fully weather sealed, can capture in RAW,  and is compatible with the earlier professional-level Fujifilm Flashguns.  Please note, I am talking about the fixed lens 2013 Finepix S1 and not the earlier, Nikon Mount camera.  

This is probably a somewhat strange question, given that most users here are probably not interested in a glorified cell-phone camera with a 50x zoom lens attached to the front.  I spent my first 10 years shooting almost always in 400 and 3200 speed black and white Kodak film, with only occasional moments using 100 ASA film.  Grain has never been an issue.  I do love the idea of having a weather-sealed flash to pair it with, though.

    • I found this lens OIS quite lousy .  Very very far from the promised 4 stops. https://www.imaging-resource.com/lenses/fujinon/xf-18-55mm-f2.8-4-r-lm-ois/image-stabilization-test/ Without Ois you need 1/125th sec for a 50mm lens, right ?  Ok, I agree. Then 1 stop gain means 1/60th .... 2 stop gain would mean 1/30th .... 3 stops 1/15th .... 4 stops 1/8th .  Right  ? Well ..... forget it !   All the promised Fuji stop gains are blatantly overstated !  Particularly with the XF18-55 le
    • I agree. Coming from xt2 and x100s, the xt4 is a huge disappointment in terms of build quality. I couldn’t understand how I acquired a serious mark on the ‘prism’ within 24 hours of arrival as I am a very careful user. Sad about this retrograde step.
    • I have just got a new xt4 and experienced the same issue. No apparent problem or damage but odd nevertheless and a bit disconcerting!  Did you get any responses?
    • Hello everybody, New Fuji owner from Michigan here. 😊 I've been a photographer since the 80s and have been shooting digital since 2003 (almost exclusively Canon.) Being someone who learned with film I've always had a pretty nice collection of vintage lenses and while they're alright on my DSLRs I've always wanted something a little better from them. I missed the look they gave me on my old film bodies. Since Covid-19 has kept me from working I felt it was a great time to explore mirror
