Westcott FJ80 Universal Touchscreen 80Ws Speedlight

Breaking new ground, Westcott has rolled out the on-camera FJ80 Strobe with a 2.8" LCD touchscreen, fast response, multi-camera TTL compatibility, and the convenience of a removable, rechargeable, lithium-ion polymer battery that will give you 400 full-power flashes on a 2-hour charge. The FJ80 has a 9-stop power range in 0.1-stop and 1-stop increments, recycles in a fast 0.5 to 1.2 seconds, and is capable of 20 fps. It supports High Speed Sync up to 1/8000 second as well as front and rear curtain sync.

One of the FJ80's exciting features is its wide multi-brand TTL compatibility. The flash has an integrated 16-channel, 31-group, 2.4 GHz transceiver that can control multiple FJ200s, FJ400s, and FJ80s and is TTL compatible with Canon, Nikon, Sony (with adapter), FUJIFILM, Panasonic Lumix, and Olympus cameras when used on-camera as well as off-camera at distances up to 328' with separate purchase of a FJ-X2m Universal Wireless Trigger, an FJ80 Universal Speedlight with Built-In Transceiver, or another FJ80.

Westcott FJ400 400Ws Strobe with AC/DC Battery (US/No. America Plug)

Westcott continues to push the envelope with the introduction of the FJ400 400Ws Strobe with AC/DC Battery. This version of the flash head has a power cord with a plug that's designed for use in the US and North America. The flash head recycles in just 0.9 seconds at full power - an impressive spec for a battery-powered light. Its 9-stop power range makes it readily adaptable to a variety of situations, as do High Speed Sync, Rear Curtain Sync, and TTL capability. Speaking of TTL, the FJ400 radio receiver is compatible with many Canon, Nikon, Sony (with adapter), FUJIFILM, Panasonic Lumix, and Olympus cameras, as well as the Canon RT flash system. With separate purchase of the FJ-X2m Universal Wireless Trigger, you can make power and exposure compensation adjustments at distances up to 985'. The wireless system offers 32 channels with six groups to prevent interference with other photographers or to shoot several individual setups.

The FJ400 runs on a powerful, removable 14.8V, 4400mAh lithium-ion polymer battery that will give you 480 full and thousands of low-power flashes on a 2.5-hour charge. The battery has LED status indicators to keep you appraised of remaining power. A 20W LED modeling light is employed for minimal power drain. Alternatively, when you're shooting in the studio you can run the flash head with AC current using the included adapter. The FJ400 ships with a magnetic 5.5" reflector with three CTO filters to match other fixtures, warm ambient light conditions, or just for creative expression. A magnetic diffusion filter is included to soften the output, as is an insert that allows use of any of Westcott's Rapid Box Switch softboxes. A custom-made travel case is also provided for storage and transport.

Wide Wireless TTL Compatibility
The FJ400's built-in TTL receiver is compatible with many Canon, Nikon, Sony (with adapter), FUJIFILM, Panasonic Lumix, Olympus cameras, and the Canon RT flash system. Make adjustments to the FJ400 from distances up to an impressive 985' with the separately-purchased Universal Wireless Radio Trigger.
Rechargeable, Removable, Powerful LiPo Battery
The FJ400's 14.8V, 4400mAh lithium-ion polymer battery is a removable power source that will provide 480 full power flashes on a 2.5-hour charge. LED charge status lights keep you appraised of the battery's remaining power. Alternatively, when shooting in the studio, you can power the light with the included AC adapter.

Westcott FJ80 and FJ400 Strobe Reviews

I really like this kit

By Austin
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-26

The lights are exactly what I have been looking for. I wish it came with an on-camera control unit. The bag is very good quality and honestly worth the package if you are wanting the lights.

Works Well, but Feels Flimsy

By Heather
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-30

I ordered this kit primarily for product photography, with some lifestyle/portrait work on occasion. The lights did what I needed them to, but I ended up returning the kit because the FJ-X2m remote (not included in this kit) became unusable after a month of regular use, and I decided to switch to a different brand. Right out of the box, the FJ80 had a loose screw rattling around inside the reflector. This didn't affect the performance of the flash, but it doesn't reflect well on the QC department. Otherwise, both lights worked reliably well in the time I had them. The touchscreen on the FJ80 is arguably its best feature, with the snap-on accessories a close second. I never had any issues with the FJ400. The controls on both flashes are intuitive and easy to use. My only real disappointment with the lights was the batteries, which drained faster than other brands I've tried. Overall, this kit seems like a decent started pack for the price, but I wouldn't recommend it to a working professional.

It's a neat kit and works great when it does. The fj80 suddenly became lose at a wedding causing the fj400 and the fj80 to not fire. We ended up missing a special photo.

Love it

I love this bundle. It's a great starter kit. Really versatile with any brand of camera. When I opened my kit, Westcott forget my the second battery for the FJ80. They sent me an aditionnal battery for free and it was really fast. Really great support from Westcott! I'm confused with the fact that the light is a rebrand of Jinbei HD-2 and HD-400 but I love this kit and the batteries are really usefull and powerfull.

Quality Product

This product checked the boxes for me for a portable light kit that is flexible and versatile. I did purchase an FJ200 and the trigger so that way I can do 3 off-camera lights with ease. This bag is pretty great. It has plenty of storage and is well built.

Yes, both system have built in transceiver therefore you can control the Westcott FJ400 Strobe by attaching the Westcott FJ80 Speedlight on the camera hot shoe. If you need to have both units off camera you will need the following universal flash trigger on the camera hot shoe.

Im a Nikon user, exactly which cameras are these ttl flash heads going to be compatable with?
Asked by: Douglas
To be more accurate it "should" work with most Nikon cameras not included on the official tested compatible Nikon list however you need to make sure the FJ400/FJ800 both are updated if using both. Second if it is not listed this generally means there is a functionality limitation and for example you may need to change some of the settings on your Nikon like turning off dynamic lighting. Also if your using a Nikon that does not support HSS the older Nikons may take additional seconds to resync back. Other than that I've personally used the FJ400 without issue with Nikon D3200 after all of the above.
