If you have a Fujifilm camera and you are looking for a flash, congratulations, I think you have found the right article because I am going to try to make the task of searching and choosing a little easier.
Today I will talk about the best flashes for Fujifilm cameras, so if you are interested, stay. Finding a good flash is an important part of learning light, so we should not give them up, no matter how complicated they may seem at first.
WHAT TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT WHEN CHOOSING A FLASH?
When choosing a suitable flash, several aspects must be taken into account, because, just as there is no ideal camera for everyone, we do not all have the same needs in terms of flash or other photographic accessories.
Aspects to consider when choosing a flash:
- Control type (TTL and/or manual)
- Guide number
- recycling rate
- Movable head (and the direction in which it rotates)
- zoom head
- Max sync speed
- connection method
- Size and weight
With that said, let's take a look at our 5 recommended flashes for Fujifilm cameras.
We start our selection of Fujifilm flashes with this Godox TT350F. Undoubtedly, a great bet in terms of quality-price.
With a guide number of 36 (GN), it works as master and slave, has an LCD screen with simple and intuitive settings, a coverage of 24 to 105mm, a maximum sync speed of 1/8000s or a weight of 210g ( without battery) among other features.

A compact mid-range flash for those looking for a flash that weighs (203 g) and takes up little space but at the same time provides everything an amateur flash should.
This flash certainly does, with a guide number of 40, both vertical and horizontal rotating head, a 24-105mm zoom range, manual and TTL modes, and high-speed sync.
His limitations? Its recycling speed is 4s and it does not have a rear LCD screen nor can it function as a master.

I know that the flash is that accessory that terrifies us, I know that we always make the excuse that natural light is better, but the truth is that, as photographers, mastering light (all types of light) should be our medium-term goal. .
So I encourage you to lose your fear of the flash, to play, to have fun and to dare to shape the light until you are a master of LIGHT in capital letters ? .
