As you know, Fujifilm has delayed the release of the Fujifilm EF-X500 flash several times. The current deadline is the 17th of November. In their official press release, Fujifilm just said they need more time for the “quality evaluation”
Well, according to a new source, the reason for the delay is that the flash was severely overheating (actually the source said it can catch fire).
Fujifilm took a few more months of time to fix this issue. Let’s hope they will have sorted out any issue by the 17th of November.
The Flash Overview
Anyway… sooner or later the flash will come. Some folks are already testing pre-production samples of the Fujifilm EF-X500, and in this case it’s X-photographer Max De Martino, who shares a quick overview (and samples) over at fujifilm-x.
