RUMOR: Upcoming Fuji Flash made with METZ… and some more specs! (anonymous source)

Share

 photo asd_zps6f84ebaf.jpg

the Fujifilm EF-42 is one of the Fuji flashes available at the market. More flash units are needed…. a new flash could come in spring 2015

_ _ _

An anonymous source with nick-name (thanks) just shared with us the following information: The new (still just rumored) flash for the Fuji X System will be made with METZ. The features? Guide number 52, off shoe TTL, ABC grouping and to be announced at the CP+ in Japan (February).

This rumor confirms (partially) what shared earlier about this flash. In fact, previous rumors talked about wireless control, but the guide number was said to be 50. And as you might remember, a trusted source told us that it will be released in spring 2015. Another reminder: it is said to have HSS capability.

The anonymous source also confirms what Fujifilm told us back on the 24th of July: the XF90mm and the XF140-400 will be released at the end of 2015. It also said that the X-PRO2 would feature an 24MP sensor.

Message to sources: you can contact Fujirumors 100% anonymously via rumor box (maybe using a nick name so that I can eventually recognize you in future) or via email at fujirumor [at] gmail.com. Feel free to make my X-PRO2 rumor sleuthing a bit easier ;)

Nissin i40 Tests Photos & Review at thephotographyhobbyist & colinnichollsphotography

Share

 photo asd_zps42e099ec.png

It was a long wait for the Nissin i40 to be in available also for Fuji X cameras. The delivery has started in Asia at the second half of November, then in EU, and finally also in USA (In stock at BHphoto, AmazonUS (via thrid party) and Adorama).

We now have some first samples and reviews about this new flash for Fuji X.

1) colinnichollsphotography says in the conclusions that:

” overall it’s a great piece of kit and really fun and easy to use. I’ve just completed a wedding using this flash and it was great, used mostly in manual in place of my usual Yongnuo’s the lighter option is much better, images to come soon.”

2) Some more samples here at thephotographyhobbyist.

I’m very impressed with the build quality and features (having used Nikon flashes in the past). I’m also happy to see it comes with a built-in diffuser , bounce card, pouch and flash stand.”

NOTE: X-T1-owners, who plan to buy the Cactus V6 flash trigger with TTL Pass-Through will be disappointed, because the Nissin i40 will not work in TTL Pass-Through on the X-T1/ V6. You can read more at cactus-image. (thx “angry X-T1-V6 user“)
