Off-Camera Flash For Fujifilm


Fujifilm EF-42One big gap for Fujifilm shooters is off-camera flash. Other than putting an EF-42 flash on a long cord (a Canon-compatible cable is reported to work well), there are no first-party choices.

Yes, the X-Trans sensor is capable of low noise high ISO performance and the Fujinon primes are fast lenses. But what options are available for photographers who need supplemental light? If the requirement is for TLL flash control, then the long Canon-compatible cord is the only choice. But if manual flash will work for you, or is your preference, then I’ve found several viable options.

Next Stop, Fujifilm


Fujifilm X-T1I’ve left a long trail of camera systems behind me. That may be a good or a bad thing, but for me it’s time for the next move.

After some time with the very nice Olympus OM-D E-M1, I decided that I’d go back to my Nikon gear. And after a very short time with that, I knew that wasn’t going to work for me, either. The moment happened when I looked at my Nikon D810 with the 24-120mm f4.0 lens mounted and realized it was just too big for a walk-around camera.
