question

Is this flash compatible with Fuji X-E2 ? I saw in the description it is compatible with X-Pro1 but the X-E2 is not listed. I was wondering if this description is just obsolete or in fact it is not compatible with X-E2 ?

question

I can use manual power only in full stops here, right? I mean 1/1, 1/2, 1/4 and so on, but I won't be able to use 1/2+0.5EV in manual setting?
Asked by: Sergey
It appears you are correct. While the flash does have Exposure Compensation capability, it appears it may only be used when shooting in TTL automatic flash output. When setting the flash output manually, it would cycle through (1/1) or 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64 power settings.

question

Will this flash work with the new XT1 from fuji? How does the power compare to a canon 600exII and how fast does it recycle compared to the 600exII? Thank you.
Asked by: Anonymous
The Fujifilm EF42 shoe mount flash will be compatible with the Fujifilm XT1. At full power, the recycling time is roughly 3-3.5 seconds depending on the battery type used (NiMH or alkaline, respectively). The minimum recycle time for the Canon 600 EX RT is 3.3 seconds. The Fujifilm EF42 has a guide number of 138 at ISO 100, whereas the Canon 600 EX RT has a guide number of 197 at ISO 100.

Does this flash have rear curtain sync?

Rear curtain sync is a setting that will have to be set on the actual camera body, rather than the external flash.
