Re: Does Nikon Flashes do TTL on Xpro 1?

Only thing that works with X-Pro1 and the X100 and Nikon speedlights is full manual. At least it's that way with my SB-600, 900 and 910s. Only the Fujifilm units will get TTL. However, curiously enough some of the Canon extension cords (OC-3) have the same pinout as the Fujifilm units, thus giving TTL.

I had used SB600 on the XPro1. Works in full manual mode with a caveat. When you snap a shot while the flash is in sleep mode, the flash does not fire. So you have to "wake" it up before the shot.

Anyone was able to use Canon 580II in Auto mode with XPro-1?

A related question: has anyone been able to use the Canon 580II flash in Auto (thyristor) mode with XPro-1.  I am worried what the similar pinout configuration between Canon and Fuji would do to the camera when the wrong brand flash is mounted.  Do you need to use a dumb shoe to make it work?
