roToliGhT hss TrAnsmiTTer For FujiFilm
www.rotolight.com £229 / $249
Rotolight’s current LED lights all have an Elinchrom Skyport flash receiver built in. This enables the constant lights to work as wireless off-camera flash units at shutter speeds of up to 1/8,000sec, and with no recycling time. However, doing so requires a wireless transmitter to be connected to the camera.
Rotolight offers a number of HSS transmitters, the latest of which is for Fujifilm cameras. You may find that an older camera like the X-T2 needs a firmware upgrade installing before the option to use the transmitter is available. Then you can select the Flash
Function setting in the camera menu and set the mode to Manual. Once that’s done, you can shoot with flash at the mechanical shutter’s maximum rate – that’s 8fps with the X-T2 and 11fps with the X-T3. The transmitter also enables you to control the power and colour of each connected light remotely.
