I am trying to find a compatable externalflash for my S9000 andFuji tech support arn't very helpful. The only thing they sugested was to get a flash that is below 400 watts. Can someone out there help me find a flash that will work without doing any damage to my camera. Thanks



Joe

My following answer is NOT a recommendation to forum members as it is almost the cost of the S9000.

Before buying my S9000, I had already owned a Pocket Wizard.

When I use an external flash, usually two, I put my wizard in my hotshoe. From this transmitter I cord to my flash on my bracket, and transmit via radio to my second flash.

Using the Wizard, I never gave any thought to its voltage or if it would matter.

Just like you, I would not stick any external flash on my S9000 without checking.

Sorry I have no specific answer for you.

Which flash are you considering?

Regards, Nicholas

Joe: Was that 400 watts or 400 volts that Fuji told you? I am using my Canon speedlite 277T wich was for my Canon T70 slr. Found on the web it has a trigger voltage of 4.8v. So far it works Fine. I think if you stick to flashes that have low trigger voltages you will be fine. This picture was taken with S9000 and the 277T flash.

I recently purchased this flash for my S9000: http://www.adorama.com/FAB.html

It is a pretty big flash and makes the 9000 quite top heavy, I also have a flash bracket to use for extended periods of shooting. I haven't had any real opportunities to test it out, but here are some test shots I took with it:

I took this shot using the bounce of my living room:


And here is a quick shot I took in the mirror so you can see how it looks on the 9000:
