question

Can you attach an external battery pack to this flash such as the type that clip onto your belt for use in wedding photography?
Asked by: Arturo
This flash is actually very good. I also have the battery pack, so the recycle time is decent. I use the X T3's and the medium GFX 50R's for weddings. To help light up reception rooms I have White Lightning strobes, the 3200. Everything runs off of radio slaves. Well the EF-X500 has not let me down once. I've heard this flash is actually made by Metz. In the film days I used the 60 series Metz. Nothing but power.

I just bought the TTL FujiFilm radio receiver for ...

I just bought the TTL FujiFilm radio receiver for the Godox AD200 flashes. Will the EF-X500 work with this set-up? If so, do I use the same radio receiver system to sync this flash? Thank you!
Asked by: Ardella
If you have the Godox X1T-F or Godox X-PRO F transmitter to fire the AD200, which has a built in receiver, you would not be able to fire the EF-X500. There are presently no Fujifilm compatible receivers from Godox.

question

What adapter and sync cord should I purchase for using this flash, wired, to an X-Pro2?
Asked by: Brendan H.
There are no TTL cords yet, but if you are using this on the X-Pro2, you won't need to adapt it since it was made for the X-series cameras.

question

I used this flash one time. Now it's dead. I've put in three sets of fresh batteries and it won't power on. Does anyone know what problem could be?
Asked by: Daniel B.
Finally reached Fuji. It's a known problem with these flashes. If you're a customer with a dead unit, call Fuji, get the address where you get to Pay For Shipping and send in your dead unit, they will update the firmware, and return it to you. I hope you enjoy paying for more and waiting more for their mistakes. I don't enjoy it.

question

I'd like to attach a Quantum Turbo 3 battery back to the EF-X500. Is that possible? If so, which cable/connector is compatible? Sony? Canon? It's definitely not Nikon.
Asked by: Dio
This flash is only meant to be used with the EF-BP1 battery pack. Any use of a third-party external battery pack may result in serious damage to the flash unit.
