Flash, or more specifically TTL & HSS has always been Fujifilm’s Achilles heel. Sure you could get HSS and TTL with systems like Cactus and Roboshoot, you could get some level of support, but it wasn’t native and required expensive triggers and receivers.

Then the EF-X500 came out and although there was initial fanfare, it came with a premium price a lack of wireless support. Since then, we’ve been waiting for suitable alternatives and fortunately that day has arrived.

Godox released it’s TT350F which is the first one of their proposed TTL/HSS flashes for Fuji. It’s on the lower end of the power spectrum, but it’s also a good size for a small mirrorless. With the lack of wireless support for the EF-X500, I’ve been working with a Yongnuo YN560 along with a Elinchrom Ranger for the heavier stuff, but there are times where there simply isn’t any other alternative for TTL.

It’s unusual for Australia to be the first (or one of the first) to get something. These days global release dates seemed to be aligned, so when I saw the release date for Adorama on fujirumors as the 30 June, I wasn’t expecting anything better. I emailed one of the Australian suppliers (Hypop) and asked them to let me know when the were expecting stock. I got a response to say stock had just arrived so I put in an order. Pricing was better than I expected, I haven’t followed the pricing of the Godox gear recently but A$139 (US$85 on Amazon) for a TTL/HSS flash is pretty reasonable by any standards . My Yonguo manual flash cost more than that although it is a high power output.

[UPDATE] Godox Update: More Details about Fujifilm TTL/HSS Support (Including New X2 Trigger for Fujifilm in July)

Godox Fujifilm Support

For an entire month, the news was somewhere hidden on CheetahStand facebook page, until an attentive FR-reader (thanks) finally spotted it and shared it with us here. The news is now spreading quickly on the web, as usual ;) .

Anyway, since we broke the news today that Godox is working on Fujifilm support, something is moving, and more details just appeard on the web, always via CheetahStand here:

Olympus and Panasonic TTL/HSS remote for Cheetah X series light come out first…I will test on May….Fuji coming right after that….Stay tuned

Also FR-sources (thanks) quickly dropped me emails. Here is what I got from them:

  • The Godox X1 for Fujifilm will be released at the end of April, or beginning of May (HSS and TTL)
  • The new X2 trigger with Fujifilm support will be released in July

** UPDATE ** : More tidbits from the Cheetah page here:

Godox will make TT350 first. I will test it…..If good move to V860X….If good make X1 and same time all X series will accept Olympus/Panasonic by firmware update….Same on Fuji

The original Roadmap shared earlier today:

Godox Plan:
TT350 Olympus and Fuji April-May 2017.
If TT350 is good, Move to 685 and V860II.
If all is good move to X1 Fuji and X1 Olympus.

Let There Be Light :: Elinchrom, Phottix and Godox Working on Fujifilm X Compatible Flashes/Triggers (and Elinchrom hints support ;) )

Let There Be Light

It seems that the point has come, where you can’t ignore the Fujifilm X System anymore. Sure, we are still a niche, but a constantly growing one, so it starts to be interesting for third parties to create Fujifilm supported products.

In fact, I’ve just heard from a source, that Phottix, Elinchrom and Godox are all working on Fujifilm X series compatible flashes/triggers. At the moment I have no indication, when the support will be completed, though… but I guess it won’t take that long anymore. Why?

Well, as FR-reader told us in the comments to the big rumor overview, he wrote this comment at the Elinchrom facebook page: “Where’s the Fuji love elinchrom!!!??” Elinchrom liked the comment. And when X-shooter Neil asked if this means that Fujifilm Support is coming in near future, Elinchrom liked also that comment! Maybe it means nothing… or maybe… ;)

And, just a reminder, as rumored here, also Profoto should add Fujifilm support in 2017.

The source (whom I trust) asked me to take it with a grain of salt at this stage… and so I’ll do. As soon as I will be able to confirm it, I’ll let you know here on FujiRumors.
