Second, the flash exposure dial is way too easy to touch and change without intending to. It's irritating on a busy shoot day when you have to continually keep your eye on the dial to make sure it hasn't changed from the last time you picked the camera up. I don't want a lock, just a firmer detent to prevent exposure errors.
I managed to lose, on the first day, the included softbox. I thought, no big deal, I'll write to Nissin to ask where to purchase a spare one. They responded instantly and referred me to Minoxusa, the US distributor. I used the email link provided, asked for a purchase source for a spare, and nada. Sent them a second email to tell them I'm not impressed by lack of response, got no response to that one either. Wrote to Nissin to make them aware their distributor was MIA, again instant response with a nudge to distributor.
Finally got an email apologizing saying they had been working on sending me a new part for free. I received that yesterday and am most appreciative. Suggested that next time, letting a customer know their email was received and being addressed might avoid frustration on everyone's part.
The flash head articulates in all directions and has some nice resistance to it as well, so it's not easily moved. A nice bonus is the video light in the front. Not as bright as it could be, but enough if you need to highlight your subject who is about three feet (or one meter) away from you. The video light would be okay for an interview type video, but won't throw much light beyond that. Perfect for a slightly dim setting, but don't count on it throwing the same amount of light that the main flash would throw.
Setting the flash to "SF", for "slave film", allows you to trigger the flag via your on camera flash.
The light from the actual flash itself can be controlled via the knobs on the back. For most folks, Auto mode will do just fine. But TTL is a plus, especially if you want to tweak the light up or down 3 stops. The photo of the DVD case that it's a little dim was taken with the flash power reduced by three stops. And the bright photo was shot in Auto.
The nice thing about this flash is that if you want to use it off-camera as a "manual-only" flash, it actually works with the Yongnuo YN560-TX Flash Controller mounted on the X-T1 and the Yongnuo RF-603C II set to receive and mounted on the flash. The only disadvantage is, of course, having to do the manual power and zoom adjustments on the flash itself.
It comes in a compact case that holds the flash, the soft box, and stand. The battery door could be a slight weak point if man-handled, but I'm careful to close it properly.
Great little flash. Perfect for travel. I'd definitely reach for this one more often than my Yongnuo manual flash just because of the size and weight.
The standard flash attachment that comes with the X-T1 is pretty weak compared to this Nissin i40 flash. This Nissin flash will allow you to take numerous shots with your flash, while being able to recycle the flash quickly. There were times when I'd use the standard flash attachment for the X-T1 and you'd have to wait for the flash to recharge. That got quite annoying pretty fast.
So when using this flash, just make sure you have some extra batteries on hand if you ever have to change out the batteries. As far as build construction and quality goes, I give this an 8/10. The plastic doesn't feel cheap but at the same time, it doesn't feel rugged or solid. So when attaching this onto your camera, make sure that you don't drop it or hit up against something by accident, as that may damage the flash.
But yeah, other than that, this should be your go to TTL flash for your Fuji camera system. Hope this review helps your decision!
