Wireless TTL flash trigger for Fujifilm x | Mehrdad Samak-Abedi

I am a great fan of the Fujfilm X-system – quite obvious here, don’t you think?! But there is something that even the most hardcore X-fan cannot deny: Fujifilm does not offer a good system for flash photography (yet!). Ok, there are 3 flash units for the X-system, but two of them are more or less just better fill flashes and the other is a bit more powerful. That’s “okay”, but today customers want something more sophisticated than “light on/off”. One keyword is wireless off-camera flash ; of course with an intelligent TTL-metering. Unfortunately not one of the remote units that are on the market these days supports the latter function for the Fuji X-system. Fuji themselves don’t offer a solution for that as well. For most photographers this is no problem since consistent results usually come in manual mode anyway. But if you have to act fast TTL-metering for flash comes in quite handy. Most of us had a photography life before Fuji – me at least. From that past times I already sold everything but I kept my flash units. Canon & Nikon for example offer great systems for flash photography and usually I use them in manual mode anyway but I often asked myself how cool it would be to use my “old” flash system in TTL mode with my Fuji X cameras – wireless, of course. It would be… Wow! The best of everything. Great flash system with a great camera. Won’t work? Well, it does……..
