question

What is the proper PC sync cord for syncing this flash to the Fujifilm X-Pro2?
Asked by: Brendan H.
Unfortunately, I do not currently see the Fujifilm EF-X500 Flash listing a PC sync terminal as a feature under the Specifications tab on Fujifilm's website, and at this time, Fujifilm has not yet released the instruction manual for the EF-X500 Flash, so I cannot confirm or state if a/which PC sync cable may work for your needs. I would recommend checking back once the flash is available for purchase or the instruction manual is released online.

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.

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.

The EF-X500 can be controlled remotely via optical wireless flash control or mounted on the camera hot shoe for use as a stand-alone flash unit or as a master flash controlling remote FUJIFILM flash units via optical wireless control.Be sure to check your camera's compatibility and firmware version when the flash is released.

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.
