    Looks like a good alternative to Fuji own flashguns, compact but packs a punch.

    I saw one of these in person. Build quality is excellent, and size is perfect for an X-series camera... can't wait to get one...

    A word of caution. These are general specs for this flash, which is made to work with several systems. As far as I know, the Fuji version is not yet available and which features work with the Fuji have not been clearly stated (Note the specs mention Nikon, Canon and Sony).

    Specifically, will high-speed flash be supported to 1/8000th with Fuji X cameras? I would be very excited if even 1/2000 was supported. Other than the X100 and X100s, it seems unlikely.

    Will wireless TTL be supported? Unless they have some deal with Fuji, this is not likely to work with existing Fuji strobes. It is possible they can build their own system using multiple Nissin units. If they do this, I will be very impressed (and Fuji will be very fortunate that their system has just become more competitive with pro DSLRS at no extra cost to Fuji).

    As far as I know, release date is supposed to be September.

    If you know anything about if these features will or won't be implemented by Nissin, I, for one, would love to know. :)
