Fujifilm Camera Owners Get New TTL Flash: The Nissin i40 | The Phoblographer

Fujifilm Camera Owners Get New TTL Flash: The Nissin i40 | The Phoblographer | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

It’s a very well known fact that Fujifilm camera owners don’t have the best selection of TTL flashes available.But that’s slowly changing–as is evident with the newest offering from Nissin. Their i40 flash now supports Fujifilm cameras and has all the choices and options that you’d expect from a more consumer friendly flash. The i40 features analog dials on the back, slave mode, rotates left and right to 180 degrees, has an LED video light, and is pretty powerful at guide number 131. The head also tilts upwards to 90 degrees. While this is a bit of a start, much more advanced flashes are indeed needed for Fujifilm’s cameras. We hope that Phottix will one day deliver on this as Yongnuo’s options tend to be very hit or miss.......

What Is TTL

I’ll start part 2 (part 1 is HERE) by describing what TTL actually is. Feel free to skip this part if you already know this. Back in the good old film days a lot of flash guns had a small calculator in the form of a chart or a small disk that rotated. These things basically calculated what setting worked for the Guide Number of the flash you were using. I had a Vivitar 283 back in the early 80′s, which was one of the most popular and reliable guns of it’s time. It had a dial built into the hinge of the bounce head (photo left). You set the dial to whatever ASA/Din number your film was (now called ISO) and the dial told you what distance you would cover with the varies apertures. The coloured sections corresponded to a dial on the front of the camera. It all goes a bit hazy after that…it was a long time ago. But I do remember having a cable that plugged into the front of the gun to use it off the camera.Fast forward to today and we have much more sophisticated flashes that talk to the camera and vice versa. The camera takes it’s exposure reading through the lens (TTL) and tells the flash the information it needs to know. The flash then works out how much power it needs to put out to achieve a good exposure. The flash gun can also let you know via it’s display if the right exposure was obtained......
