The i60a is the perfect size for an on camera setup because of its size.

The i60a would be the perfect small/powerful setup for weddings with TTL capabilities. I am new to speed lights that don't require a receiver/transmitter combo and I love it. One less thing to worry about setup wise and one less thing to have batteries for .

I think HSS would be more "perfect" for wedding applications. I highly doubt the max flash sync is much help for extremely bright sunny days limited without HSS. Sometimes you just need enough light to fill shadows in harsh mid day sun.

I still haven't tested my EF-X500 thoroughly but it's certainly reassuring to have HSS. I've been waiting for Nissin for full capabilities of HSS and it has not happened yet.

One thing I must say is buying a flash for fuji is imperative for maximizing general usage. I've been pushing the "natural light/available light" shooting and it just didn't work for me. I'm so use to "double exposure" LOL!!! In a fun way I mean able to control both environmental available light and artificial light light controlling what I want.

One thing I mentioned on another Fuji thread is that fuji's flagship flash uses an LED focus assist rather than infrared like my Canon. I will have to say it appears OE and 3rd party use this method of focus assist. Obnoxious bright white LED is one thing I cannot accept as this is an inferior method of locking on AF in darkness especially low contrast dark subjects.

However at the end of the day I'm extremely pleased on finally purchasing an OE HSS capable flash. My next test is to shoot in bright sunlight in the lens while pushing HSS to uplift shadows of my subjects. This is what I've been easily been shooting with Canon and now I can finally see if it works with my Fuji.

Shortly after this photo I took a group shot photo of 50 kids. I was pleased with the results.

A school of boats in Dun Laoghaire harbour being called back in due to a sudden storm hitting. Chaos.

I agree that HSS is needed to make it a perfect combo. If you need HSS for your type of work then this setup will not work for you. ;-)a

I played around with my i60a on top of my camera and got up to 1/1000 of a second before I got banding and blackouts. With the Di700 I was limited to 1/250. If I were doing a paid gig and HSS was a must I would not rely on it as it's not an "official" working method.

For the bundle price $300 USD which includes the Di700 and commander is an excellent starting point imo.

Daughter had a ballet show at the helix theatre in Dublin tonight, didn't use my camera during the show, just sat back and enjoyed my Daughter dancing on the big stage, this is at home getting ready, a little bit of makeup in window light.

That light is great. Especially on your daughter's face. There's just enough.

Thanks Matt. I had stuck the camera on AE, or so I though, and was riding the ex-comp dial, only to see 1/8000 ss in the viewfinder a few shots in. XPRO2 has no lock. A quick twiddle of the knobs and I can see the balance of light in the viewfinder, love this EVF shooting at times & now that I've got use to the 'unique' ISO/shutter speed dial it feels good.

Was feeling hot today in Ireland so we needed a cool down after a long walk, nothing better then ice cream, except a dip in the river but given the choice...

Sunday afternoon coffee, my Daughter and her Mum chatting while the boy is reading a Star Wars annual. A reward on the way home from a long cycle around our local town.
