Miguel Fuentes: I doubt Matt Granger reads the comments posted a year and a half later, but
I was wondering if anyone new how to create single light portraits with the
Fuji X-E1. With only 3 flash guns dedicated to the Fuji X-Series (EF-X20 /
20 & EF-42), I've read that there are complications / limitations when
trying to shoot single light portraits. Can anyone help or direct me?
Tacheles Reden: I like that the "NiconGuy" also likes e.g. Fujis cameras. Makes you
Clément Demonty: Is the EF-X20 working on slave mode with the X100?
Richard Bradbury: Probably none of the fuji ones, buy a good solid use Vivitar 285, Canon or
Nikon unit and some wireless triggers.
einfussganger: Great comparison. Pity Fuji didn't put a little flash into the XPro1 like
they did the X100. That's a nifty little fill in flash that can also
trigger my SB700 when in slave mode. I have tried using the Nikon
speedlight with the XPro1 and it works great, but there's no TTL. Unless
you're shooting something (like an event) where time is of the essence,
it's really no big deal to guess, chimp, adjust and reshoot. The speedlight
does look a little silly though, but I like that I can still bounce.
Matt Granger: there's no need for that, I already responded.
photographerjonathan: you say Nikon has more advantages for you, what are those advantages ?
planthi80: great video....
Sip Bra: the nikon flashes work as well. atleast on the x10 it is
Gouki87: does the xpro 1 have a pop up flash? How can you get those flashes to work
as slaves? Do either include some kind of wireless sync with the body or
jiebin zhong: sure
Alberto Feltrin: What is that red thing on the side of the lamp on the front of the EF-X20?
Does it have a focus assist beam?
BYRDO C: yooooo whats that grip you got on your xpro 1?? and where do i get it
Mathview: Informative post, great use of video format for instruction. TY.
Jake Heller: dont think ur analigy is quite correct
TDTPstuff: do you also own the xpro1 ?
Matt Granger: @rickjbradbury haha the 285 is a work horse, its also bigger than those
cameras and no ttl
MrTwistyface: Nice film, would have liked a few words about potential for red-eye with
the X flash, also to see example images.
Zeke Threepwood: Couldn't find any question about this, Can the X20 flash be used with any
standard hotshoe camera? Thanks!
Matt Granger: @Instucablanator Sydney Australia
MultigrainPie: you're a freaking idiot. it's an option on your youtube account. YOU choose
to get the email.
NDSCollector: Nice video. Looks like you really like the xpro1
HomedadPSN: haters are just going to hate i bet they didn't even watch the video ignore
them Matt, Your doing a awesome job also can you include more test shots in
the video's of the product your reviewing, ok this is a flash, but even
some test with,without might be good
Lawrence Lai: Can I use x20 for the x20??
Mandeno Moments: The X20 looks ideal as a walkabout fill flash, e.g. when on one of those
family outings that always occur in the middle of the day. Having the dial
for flash exposure compensation would be a great help in this situation.
On-axis flash is only good for fill.
Matt Granger: @TDTPstuff no, on loan
Bill Furlong: Where can I get the jumper you're wearing?
Thanh Binh Nguyen: Can I use the x20 for the x100 ?
Victor Consaga: I would like to see Fujifilm incorporate some LEDs into the flash unit for
Neeamuthkhan: Very informative, been stuck on the decision between getting a 42 or x20
for a while *subscribes* So the ef-x20 is compatible with a x100?
TebbieBear: Matt, I am REALLY enjoying all these videos of you getting ready for the SE
Asia tour. Just wanted to say kudos and keep up the good work.
Matt Granger: no - control with another
crispy: Great review. Would be great if Fuji put in a small swivel to bounce the
flash, would be much more useful indoors.
LoverOfPhotography: I find my D7000 has a lot better ISO performance as the 7D, this was the
reason I did not buy a 7D. The image quality is also a lot better on the
D7000 (check dxo-mark and other testing websites). As far as I know, every
Nikon has better image qualtiy than their Canon equivalents. The Nikon
flashes are also a lot better (sb900/910). I could go on and on about this,
but I think I gave you the most important, the fact that canon has 2mp
more, is unnoticable in any situation,even when pixelpeeping.
Michael Laing: I have to say that I am not a fan of any flash, where you don't get a
swivel/tilt head. It just gives so many more options.
Matt Granger: and olympus, and canon, and leica, and tamron, and sigma....

breakit46: Nice presentation- love that baby Fuji flash. Very handy to have with you.
Sweet looking too on the X pro 1. Will this unit work flawlessly on my
X100? Thanks Matt.
LoverOfPhotography: haters, again 2 dislikes and 1 like? Y u no like tng? I hate fans of any
make hating another make. I am a Nikon guy, but still don't hate Canon for
that, Nikon has more advantages for me.
Best flash for your Fuji X Pro 1 or X1004.8
