question

Will there be a Fujifilm version of this transmitter or can the nikon or canon version be used of fujifilm cameras?
Asked by: T'wan F.
According to a Facebook post from Elinchrom LTD posted last year, and according to a press release issued by Rotolight on August 31, 2017, Fujifilm will be their next supported brand and a a Skyport Plus HS transmitter for Fujifilm should be released this year. However, at this time, there has not been a press release or an announcement of a specific arrival date for the Skyport Plus HS transmitter for Fujifilm. As such, I would simply recommend periodically checking our website or checking both Elinchrom's or Rotolight's press release webpage for an announcement or update concerning the Skyport Plus HS transmitter for Fujifilm. If you wish, you may connect a Skyport Plus HS transmitter for Nikon or Canon on a Fujifilm camera, but you would not get TTL automatic exposure or Hi-Speed sync capabilities when using a Skyport Plus HS transmitter not designed for your camera brand. You would have to set the flash output power manually when using a non-dedicated Skyport Plus HS transmitter.

Would this fit a Pentax K1?

Yes. But will have to be used in all manual mode as the sky-port does not accommodate the Pentax IDM metering system.
