A work in progress of all the speedlights available for Fujifilm.
Fujifilm EF-X500 Flash
Fujifilm EF-X500 Flash weather resistant, TTL and HSS capable. It has a range of 24-105mm, built out diffuser expands it to 20mm. (APS-C range is 16-70mm)
Can tilt from -10 to 90° with left rotation of 135° and right of 180°.
Fujifilm EF-42 Flash
The EF-42 is Fujifilms medium powered flash. TTL and HSS capable. Has a flash head zoom range of 24-105mm and can be extended down to 20mm with the pull out diffuser panel. (APS-C range is 16-70mm) No HSS.
This is Nissin’s biggest most capable unit. HSS capable and has the Nissin Air 2.4 GHz radio TTL system. Zoom range of 24-200 or 16mm with the flash diffuser panel. Flash duration – 1/800 – 1/30000 sec
This is probably Nissins best flash for Fujifilm, or I should say the best value. It’s a fantastic flash, smaller lighter and more powerful than the equivalent Fujifilm. HSS capable and has the Nissin Air 2.4 GHz radio TTL system. Zoom Range: 24-200mm or 16mm with a diffuser panel. Flash duration – 1/800 – 1/20000 sec
The Nissin i40 is a compact unit with TTL and HSS capabilities.
Can be used with a zoom range of 24 to 105mm with a built-in diffuser that allows it to function at 16mm. The flash also has a small LED light for some very basic video work.
Metz mecablitz M400
The mecablitz M400 offers full TTL and HSS support, can tilt from -9 to 90° and rotation totaling a full 360°. Can zoom and cover 12 – 105 mm (Full Frame).
OLED display with great controls and takes 4 AA batteries.
Full support for Fujifilm TTL with HSS and a built-in 2.4GHz radio system so it can be used as a radio TTL master/slave unit, or as an optical slave. Has a tilting head from -7 to 90° and can rotate 270°. If using the Godox XT1-F radio trigger, be sure to upgrade the firmware on both units to get all the features.
The Godox TT685F is a TTL flash that is without a doubt the best bang for the buck speedlite for Fujifilm. This is also the only unit that has +- 5-stop of exposure comp with HSS. Build quality is good, but the instruction manual sucks.
HSS Flash Adapters
These Flash commanders will allow you to use other brand flashes to utilize their HSS functionality.
Nissin Air Commander 1
Nissin Air 2.4GHz TTL transmission system for the Nissin Flashes. High Speed Sync supported and fully compatible with Fujifilm cameras. Runs on two AAA batteries.
Nissin Air10s Commander
Nissin Air 2.4GHz TTL transmission system for the Nissin Flashes. Same features as the commander 1 but more. High Speed Sync supported and fully compatible with Fujifilm cameras. Runs on two AAA batteries.
Godox X1TF Transmitter
The Godox X1TF Transmitter for Fujifilm works with the Godox speed lights. Together with the speedlite, these units are the best bang for the buck. The unit is a little bulky and will soon be replaced by something that looks more like the Air 1 commander. It takes 2 x AA batteries. Some complain that this unit and speed light need at least three feet of separation to function consistently.
Godox Xpro-F Transmitter
This is the latest Godox Transmitter for their full size flashes. This is a different form factor that’s a little easier to operate with a larger interface, but otherwise has all the same features and more from the X1TF transmitter listed above.
Fujifilm EF-X20 TTL
A compact but TTL capable unit with a built-in wide-angle panel. Also can work as a wireless slave unit.
Takes 2 AAA batteries and takes about 5 to 6 seconds to recycle.
A very compact flash for the Fujifilm X-T2. Is TTL capable and takes 2 AA batteries, so expect a 4-5 second recycle time. With a tilting head it’s an all around nice run and gun flash.
