Review: Godox V850 manual Li-ion flash: a perfect manual flash for
my Fujifilm X-cameras | Piet Van den Eynde

As mentioned in my Lighting Gear page, I currently use three types of hotshoe flashes with my Fuji X series cameras: for on-camera work where I like to have TTL support, I use Fuji’s own EF-42 flash. It’s relatively powerful, and especially when bouncing my flash I appreciate the fact that the TTL system automatically calculates the required output setting.

Now admittedly, I never really missed TTL for off-camera work: even with my Nikon Speedlights and cameras that supported off-camera TTL, I would almost always work in manual. I like the consistency, control and repeatability that manual offers. What I do appreciate, though, is to be able to remotely change the (manual) power on my flash.
