Mirrorless question of the month:

Hi Scott and Marco, This question is for Marco as he is shooting mainly with Fuji right now. I’ve bought a Godox studio flash that I use with my Fuji X-T2. I want to make use of the hi-speed flash sync in order to cancel out most of the ambient light in locations where I can’t control the ambient light too well. My problem is that once I set my camera manually to 1/8000s at ISO 200, the EVF gives me the direct representation of this setting and makes the whole frame dark. The flash does have a modeling light but it’s way too dim to light the model properly for me to compose and focus through the EVF. I have been using a handheld LED flashlight to overcome this, but it’s annoying for me and the model. Is there a better way to do this or is this a drawback of Fuji or mirrorless cameras in general? Love all of the different the PPN shows!
