Fujifilm has announced a new speedlight and wireless trigger for its X Series and GFX System cameras.
The EF-60 is a compact yet powerful hot-shoe mount flash, offering the maximum guide number of 60. It can be combined with the “FUJIFILM Wireless Commander EF-W1” (EF-W1), to be released at the same time, to enable wireless off-camera flash operation. This allows users to control lighting with their inspiration to suit a variety of shooting situations for creative photographic effects.
The EF-60 is a compact hot-shoe mount flash measuring 97mm x 73mm and weighing just 300g despite its powerful output with the maximum guide number of 60. The output can be precisely adjusted to add dimensions to various situations with light and shade. The flash can be combined with the EF-W1 to enable wireless off-camera flash operation.
This allows users to position the flash beside or behind the main subject to provide lighting from various directions, or synch and fire multiple flash units simultaneously for multi-flash photography, facilitating diverse photographic expression. The flash head can be manually angled 180 degrees left-to-right and 90 degrees upward so that the light can be bounced off a ceiling or wall to create indirect lighting, which provides natural lights to capture the subject’s facial expressions and the ambiance of the scene with greater nuance.
The EF-60 speedlight and EF-W1 wireless commander are currently available to pre-order for $400 and $200, respectively. The first units should be available in late August 2020.
