A set of Fujilfilm Shoe Mount Flash EF-X500 units had arrived at Fujifilm Australia the day before the X-T2 launch. It has been some years since I last used portable or studio flash with serious intent and I am looming forward to trying this flash unit out. One of its most intriguing aspects? An LED light acting as a modelling light for the flash function as well for shooting video. LED lighting units for still and movies have evolved rapidly in recent years so it is good to see portable flash becoming innovative too.
