Any idea when the next Fuji lens rebate promo will be?

If you ever goto the Fujifilm Events you can usually pickup a $50.00 Mail-In Rebate Coupon for Fujifilm X Equipment...

If we base it on last year, should April or May

I'm looking into getting a flash for my XT-1, because while I'm sure the included flash is ok, I wanted something where I can bounce the light elsewhere... I haven't really dabbled much in flash photography but I'm hearing a lot of good things about Yongnuo 560 IV... anyone have experience with it?

I use the Yongnuo YN-560 III flash*2 with my Fuji. If you're comfortable with manual flash then there is nothing wrong with it unless you need HSS

As mentioned, I'm a total noob at flash photography, and I feel like a manual flash will allow me to play around with lighting and learn more as I go... It's not like I'm a wedding photographer or some pro who needs to get the shot and exposure right via TTL anyway.

Also get a $10 replica flashbender and some orange gels off ebay to do this:



Does the 560 TTL work on Fuji? The MK320 and Nissin i40 do. TTL is pretty convenient for fast paced shooting especially for beginners, it's like AUTO for flash and not a pro thing. You're more apt to stand there firing test shots trying to figure out the best manual power, or set it to TTL and let the flash figure it out, adjust up or down once, if you want more/less exposure.
If you're fiddling with manual as a beginner, you've lost the moment or the enthusiasm of your subjects.

Thank you - this is extremely helpful too.

I don't think TTL works on Fuji using the 560, but I'll look into the other suggestions. The i40 might be out of my budget, but I do like how low profile it seems in comparison. The MK320 isn't too pricey either... More to think about, I guess.

I think what I was getting at with the pro comment is that at this point I usually have the time to fiddle around with settings and I'm not super concerned with missing the moment. I've got a lot to learn with photography still, but I enjoy testing things out.
