Nikon SB-800 on XT-4

Recommended Posts

  • 3 months later...

Hi Hillsideshortleg,

I recently switched from Nikon to Fuji x cameras and use a lot of flash for portrait work (nearly always as fill-in on location).  Having researched it a bit, I ended up buying a Godox AD200 set up with an X1T-F transmitter.  Using this set up also lets me integrate my old Nikon SB-600 flash into it should I need to (though I suspect using the latter could only ever be in manual mode as a bit of research seems to indicate that nobody has actually got Nikon TTL to talk to Fuji TTL!)  That said, I have also started using large reflectors which are highly effective at bouncing back into selected areas!  

One of the other nice things about the Godox set up is that you can very easily integrate other Godox flashes into a set up and maintain TTL flash without necessarily needing extra receivers.  (So I am thinking of getting a small TT350 flash just for general, occasional use too.)  Coincidentally, a colleague who uses Canon has also switched to a Godox flash set up so we are also planning to pool our lighting set ups for occasional, even more complex set ups.  Lighting spectaculars, here we come...!!

Hope that helps!

    • I've tried a number of lens hoods, but they all have the disadvantage of not being able to fit the lens cap when not in use. This one is specifically designed to take the standard lens cap and even has a soft rubber ring to ensure a snug fit. Very nicely made in anodised aluminium. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252370651839?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 (not connected to seller)
    • Firmware 2.10. Newly formatted sd card. And yes, I've taken a few shots. Menu Set up - Save Data Set-Up - Select Folder - "Create New Folder" is grayed out. So I cannot create a new folder. I'd like to create folders so I can store images by date. Any thoughts on how I can fix this?
    • If I put my X-S10 on a table (or any other stable surface), focus on subject and set an exposure the will require more than 1 second of exposure (doesn't matter how many, just make sure that the desired exposure will be more than 1 second), set a timer for 2 seconds and take a shot and the IBIS is set to mode 2 (Shooting only), the shot comes out completely blurry, just like if I hand held the camera (which I didn't). I repeat the EXACT same steps but this time I set IBIS to mode 1 (Continuous) - shot is tack sharp. Why? I know that IBIS should be disabled if the camera is on a tripod or any other stable surface, my question is why this happens only in mode 2 and not in mode 1 as well?
    • Ah a flick of the 'Auto' lever has fixed it! Why do they have to make things so obscure! If it said in the manual 'ES not available in Auto mode' that would have made life so much easier! Anyway, thanks for your help @Greybeard!
