Fuji X-A2 Flash
Built-in Flash Test Results
Coverage, Exposure and Range
A weak flash with somewhat narrow coverage. Above average positive exposure compensation required.
|16mm, f/3.5, ISO 200|
Coverage. Flash coverage is somewhat narrow and uneven at wide angle, leaving the corners of our flash target image quite dark at 16mm, thought that's not unusual, especially for a wider than average kit lens. Some of the corner shading can also attributable to the lens itself. We no longer test flash coverage at telephoto, as it is invariably better.
|Normal Flash, ISO 200
|Slow-Sync Flash, ISO 200
Exposure. Indoors under incandescent background lighting, the Fuji X-A2's flash underexposed our indoor portrait scene at ISO 200 and f/4, despite the +1.0 EV flash exposure compensation used. (An average of +0.7 EV is normally needed for this shot.) You'll likely need to boost ISO (or enable Auto ISO) for typical indoor shots. The camera's slow-sync flash mode required no compensation to produce a bright shot, though the much longer shutter time (1/9s vs 1/125s) resulted in a strong orange cast from the ambient background lighting.
|Manufacturer-Specified Flash Range|
5.8 feet, ISO 400
Manufacturer-Specified Flash Range Test. The Fuji X-A2's built-in flash has a Guide Number of only 7m at ISO 200. That works out to about 5.8 feet at ISO 400 and f/5.6. As you can see above, the Fuji XA2 produced a well-exposed flash target using those parameters, which means Fuji's flash range spec is credible.
