Fujifilm’s new wireless flash
Posted on Jul 28, 2020
The Fujifilm EF-60 is a compact and powerful hotshoe speedlight suitable for X Series and GFX system cameras. It’s the brand’s first radio-controlled wireless flashgun and is compatible with the EF-W1 commander unit.
This Fujifilm speedlight has a guide number of 60 (ISO 100/m) with flash coverage from 24mm to 200mm, and light spread as wide as 16mm possible when the integral diffuser is used. Other features include TTL flash, manual flash with output as low as 1/256 of full power, and high-speed flash sync up to 1/8000sec. The flash also includes a high-luminance white LED that can be used as a video assist light or as a constant light for stills shooting, adding a catchlight.
The EF-60 has a built-in wireless receiver that uses the Nissin Air System (NAS) and this flashgun can be used with the Fujifilm EF-W1 commander or the Nissin Air10s trigger. An optical wireless receiver is also built-in and it is powered by four AA batteries.
The EF-W1 commander unit can remotely trigger and control multiple EF-60 flashguns in TTL, manual and HSS modes. Output in TTL and manual modes can be wirelessly controlled in 0.3EV increments, and in manual power can be set to 1/256 output.
The EF-60 and EF-W1 are compatible with the following Fujifilm models: GFX100, GFX 50S, GFX 50R, X-H1, X-Pro2, X-Pro3, X-T1, X-T2, X-T3, X-T4, X-T20, X-T30, X-E3, X100F and X100V.
The EF-60 costs £389 and the EF-W1 commander is £199. Both are available now.
