The EF-60 is FUJIFILM’s first radio-controlled wireless shoe mount flash that packs an impressive output power and multiple functions into a compact body. It supports radio-controlled wireless flash, allowing users to be more creative in a wider range of conditions.
a) Powerful flash capabilities
The EF-60 has a maximum Guide Number of 60 (ISO100・m and flash coverage setting at 200mm*1) despite its compactness. The flash head can be adjusted by 90 degrees upward or by 180 degrees either left or right so that flash light can be bounced off a wall or ceiling to imitate natural light and avoid harsh shadows. The flash coverage ranges from 24mm to 200mm*1 and can be extended to approximately 16mm*1 when the built-in diffuser is used. It also features an Auto Zoom function, which adjusts the coverage area based on the angle of view the lens is at. The EF-60 features TTL mode automatically calculates the optimum exposure as well as Manual mode to allow users to adjust the output power themselves. The EF-60 supports FP High-Speed Sync, allowing flash synchronisation at a shutter speed as fast as 1/8000 sec. This gives users greater freedom when using the flash, such as when shooting in bright daylight with the aperture wide open.
b) Wireless communication
The EF-60 has a built-in receiver for the wireless communications system called NAS (Nissin Air System)*2. When combined with the Wireless Commander EF-W1, or the Nissin Air10s, it can be activated remotely. This allows users to place the flash anywhere, even outdoors in bright daylight or at a location where obstacles might be blocking line-of-sight. The EF-60 features the optical wireless mode. When using the FUJIFILM EF-X500 as the master unit (commander), users are able to create a stable wireless system in environments with less-than-optimum radio communications.
The EF-60 uses a xenon flash tube and a high-luminance white LED light for versatile applications, acting as video assist when filming video, providing constant light when shooting stills, adding a catch light or providing AF-assisted light.
The EF-60 uses four AA batteries and comes with a dedicated diffuser, mini-stand and special carry pouch.
