I have an answer to my occasional need for flash that will do until better ETTL flash becomes available for the Fuji X-T1. I am using an old Viivitar 283 (GN about 36m). It is an old fasioned auto flash (remember them?) with its own sensor; so all I do is use the scale to determine aperture for max distance and ISO and set the camera ISO, shutter to 1/180X and the appropriate aperture - the flash then takes care of the exposure up to maximum distance. Just had to clean up slightly corroded terminals as it had not been used for 15 years. Glad I did not sell it or throw it out!. I will have to make small calculations for ISO above 400. shows how old it is but it was popular even amongst pros when it was launched. It is a bit bulky but I used it for many years it on Canon AE-1P and T90s which are pretty similar weight and size to the X-T1 especially with grip. A zero cost solution until such time as a proper all-singing, all-dancing flash becomes available. I am a happy bunny, I have a solution I can take on holiday this summer especially as I probably won't use it!
I am only getting as little as 15.2 Mpixel from my X-T1 with Capture 1 Pro 7.2.1 (4777 x 3185). I get up to around 4873 x 3249 with X-E1 images - 15.83Mpixel. Strangely it is variable from shot to shot - I believe it is a change to the algorithm in Capture 1 as I switched to from 7.2.0 to 7.2.1 to get X-T1 capability. On 7.2.0 I also had a margin outside the default crop which allowed me to get up to around 17Mpixel, something around 5000+ px on longest side. Any body else noticed it? Does the same happen with LR esp 5.4? All in all it is slightly irritating as 16Mpixel is a bit tight for some purpose; some libraries want 4900px on the shortest side so under 4800px is a bit off. The X-T1 manual quotes 4896 x 3264 - almost 100px more on each dimension. I will raise a support ticket with Phase One when I get the time.
