X-H2s not working with Paul C Buff Lights


Recommended Posts

This morning I was trying to shoot a portrait with my XH2s and my Paul C Buff studio strobes.  I tried both the Cyber Commander and Cyber Sync. Neither of them would trigger the strobe through the hot shoe, although they would fire from the tranciever when I would hit the test button.  My only way around it was switching to my XT4.  I've fired my Flashpoint R2 on the XH2s and used the flashpoint R2-T on it multiple times in both manual and TTL mode so I know the hotshot is functional. Curious if anyone else has had this problem.  Don't know if there is some setting in camera I missed or if it is an issue on the Fuji side (that maybe can be fixed with firmware in the future) or on the Paul C Buff side.

    • Is it possible to switch from manual focus to AFC while recording movies (without stopping recording). I could do this on the XT-4 but can't find a way on the H2S.    Thank you
    • If it may be a little cheaper I would recommend the KIPON Tilt & Shift Adapter for Fujifilm X-Mount. It is available for about 300 euros to buy. Then you only need one lens for FX sensors. You can then waste the remaining 14300 euros on something else...
    • The only ways I can get the camera to show the "storing" message while it writes is to set either Clarity or HDR - neither of which can be selected in full auto mode. Even a very slow card does not show that message. I'm out of ideas. Perhaps you could post a link to a file when this occurs (straight out of camera) so that we can see all of your settings.
    • Welcome to our forum. I've copied your corrected post into the opening comment.
    • Maybe it will be more useful for Fujifilm to provide us (GFX users) with a  suitable tilt and shit wide angle lens  which is badly needed for architectural and landscape photography. I had spent over 15,000 Eur  in the system back in 2019 and that includes only the GFX 50s  as a camera body.. The rest of the money was spent on lenses, handgrip and tilting viewfinder which  has just stopped working..  It is only fair that Fuji take care of its clients especially after making a decision to switch camera systems from one brand to another. I have been taking my aging 50 s  even to cover yacht racing, although the focus system and frame progression is a huge disssappointment to say the least. as it takes a huge amount of time. I am a semi-professional and not a full time photographer, mostly engaged in art exhibitions and investment (especially at this day and age)  requires sacrifice... I expect that the system is given proper attention, now that it has lured users and clients to it! I am at the point of buying a second body, a decision which I m still considering or changing back again to full frame... as since then both canon and nikon have come up with workable solutions...
