Why I Sold the Godox TT350F and Which Flashes I do Recommend

Why I Sold the Godox TT350F and Which Flashes I do Recommend

guest post by Alexandru A. – contact me at if you would like to contribute with guest posts

First off all I apologize for the boredom of this article. I wanted to do videos, comparisons, tests, photos, etc. but it is full season, I have 2 children, a day job and no time on my hands.

I jumped to the mirrorless realm from Nikon and I am glad I did. After I sold all my Nikon gear all I was left were my 3 Nikon flashes SB600 SB700 and SB800. For a period I continued to use them with the Fuji system but this had limitations. I shoot events and I like to have one flash on camera and at least 2 off camera.

Fujifilm Claims to be Worldwide Nr. 2 in Mirrorless Market and Fujifilm GFX 50S Firmware Update Details in English

Fujifilm GFX

The Spanish site Fujistas was at the Fujifilm GFX 50R launch event. They wrote about it on their blog here (translation), and amongst the others, they shared the following tidbits:

  • Fujifilm claims to be worldwide Nr.2 mirrorless camera manufacturer
  • they demonstrated the crop capabilities of the¬†Fujifilm GFX 100 Megapixel camera and they were extremely impressed

If Fujifilm’s statement is correct, then Fuji surpassed Panasonic and Olympus, and, considering also DSLRs, they are now 4th behind Sony, Nikon and Canon.

Also, a few days ago we shared some Chinese Fujifilm media slides that showed us the details of the upcoming firmware update for Fujifilm GFX 50S. However, we struggled a bit with the translation.

Now Fujistas shared the English version of the slide (see above). The firmware update for Fujifilm GFX50S will bring the following new functions:

  • 35mm Format Mode with GF lens and Fujinon HC lenses
  • Quick Eye-sensor response for Finder
  • Simultaneous delete for RAW and JPG
  • EVF/LCD White point color customization
