And Now Profoto Denies Plans for A1 for Fujifilm

You might remember, how back in September 2017, Profoto USA said here, that they are going to release the Fujifilm version of their A1 studio light.

A few months later, in November, Profoto announced that pre-orders and sales for the Profoto A1 are very strong, hence the Canon/Nikon version will be delayed… and as a consequence also any other version, which should have followed after CaNikon.

But here comes the bad news.

FR-reader gkutar (check out his instagram here) had a talk with Profoto, and he asked when we will finally get the Fujifilm version.

The answer was the one you can see in the screenshots below.

Profoto Air Remote TTL-F Compatible with Fujifilm X-T20 and in Late April with X-E3 (Firmware Ver. 1.2.0)

Profoto Air Remote TTL-F compatible with X-T20, and soon with X-E3

Official Profoto Statement

FUJIFILM has just released a new firmware for its camera X-T20 (Ver.2.0.0), which makes it compatible with Profoto Air Remote TTL-F.

From late April 2018, Air Remote TTL-F will also be compatible with Fujifilm X-E3 through a X-E3 FW upgrade from FUJIFILM (Ver.1.2.0).

Note

Your camera’s Shutter Type setting should not be “Electronic Shutter”.
Make sure to use the latest firmware on your Air Remote TTL-F and Profoto flashes.

Profoto Air Remote TTL-F Compatible with Fujifilm X-H1 and X-T20 Support Coming in April

Currently, the Profoto Air Remote TTL-F supports Fujifilm GFX 50S, X-T2, X-Pro2 and X100F, but as we told you back in December, they announced support for further Fujifilm cameras.

Well, besides the Fujifilm X-H1, which is compatible out of the box with the Air Remote TTL-F, Profoto announced that Fujifilm will release a firmware upgrade in April to make it compatible also with the Fujifilm X-T20.

Would be great if they could add also support for X-T1, but at this point we can be fairly pessimistic that this won’t happen.

REMINDER: The Fujifilm X-T20 will get a massive firmware update in April, that is definitely worth to be called a “Kaizen update”. We have shared the full details of the X-T20 update here.

Profoto Announces Support for More Fujifilm Cameras in Addition to GFX 50S, X-T2, X-Pro2 and X100F

Profoto Fujifilm Support

Back on November 18, we told you that Profoto will start shipping their Air Remote TTL-F for Fujifilm on December 18. Well, Profoto actually started shipping it even earlier, as we reported here.

You can pre-order the Air Remote TTL-F at BHphoto, AmazonUS and Adorama.

Currently the Profoto Air Remote TTL-F supports Fujifilm GFX 50S, X-T2, X-Pro2 and X100F, but on their official page here, they say:

Other relevant cameras will be made compatible in the future through camera firmware upgrades by Fujifilm.”

I hope this means support also for older Fujifilm X-Trans cameras like the Fujifilm X-T1.

Thanks for the link Andrew ;)

Profoto Air Remote TTL-F for Fujifilm Pre-order at BHphoto… but New Godox X-Pro F Transmitter for Fujifilm Coming soon for $69!

Profoto

The Profoto Air Remote TTL-F for Fujifilm is now available for pre-order at BHphoto. Soon it will be available also at AmazonUS and Adorama. The official shipping embargo is set for December 18.

Godox

I konw about the quality of Profoto gear, and you’ve got to pay for quality, no doubt.

However, the price is quite hefty, and to me nothing beats the price/value equation of Godox gear.

Consider also that VERY soon, Godox will release the Fujifilm version of it X-Pro transmitter, which has far superior UI and controls than any other Godox trigger currently available for Fujifilm. The Canon version is sold for $69 at Adorama.

I remind you that recently DPReview declared the Godox Ving V860 II best accessory of 2017.

Profoto A1 Release Delayed… and Godox Makes Fuji X and GFX Shooters Happy :)

Profoto Delay

Back in mid-September, Profoto announced the Profoto A1 studio light.

Just a few days later, here on FujiRumors we broke the news, that the Profoto A1 will come also for Fujifilm. Profoto’s plan was to release the Canon/Nikon version in late November, and the Sony/Fuji version following later on.

The good news: Profoto A1 pre-orders seem to be strong

The bad news: according to Profoto, pre-orders are so high, that the release for Canon/Nikon version has been delayed from late November 2017 to late January 2018 (via dc-watch). I hope this does not mean also the Fuji version will be delayed, too.

Profoto Air Remote Trigger for Fujifilm to be Released December 18

Profoto Fujifilm Support

  • September 2016 here: a trusted source told us that Profoto will support Fujifilm in 2017
  • September 2017 here: Fujifilm and Profoto announced cooperation to bring TTL and HSS to the Fuji system. Shortly after, Profoto officially said on Instagram that the Profoto A1 is “coming soon”.

According to Patrick La Roque here, the Fujifilm version of the Air Remote Trigger will be released December 18.

The A1 doesn’t do TTL with Fuji you say? Now it does: the Fujifilm version of the Air Remote trigger is a reality. Not out yet (damn it) but December 18 has been set as the official release date.”

The Fuji version of the Profoto Air TTL is available to some for testing. Check out the video at Ferry Knijn Fotografie Youtube, which has been shared 3 days ago, and shows the Profoto trigger working just fine on the Fujifilm GFX.

Thanks to the two FR-readers for the links ;)

Adorama has a dedicated Profoto A1 presentation page here.

As reported here, Elinchrom triggers for Fujifilm should come in 2018.
