Fuji X-E1vs X100 vs strobe stuff

Ok another geeky test. Note. I have more to post on a weekend away in the glorious English countryside but I want to get this out of the way first.
This is just some messing about with both the Fuji X100 and the Fuji XE1 and looking at strobe lighting with both cameras. My set up is, soft brolly, CTR 301 wireless triggers a light stand, Nikon Sb26, I am not going to go into all the deep lighting stuff like flash sync times, shutters, trigger speeds flash duration, GN numbers because frankly I’m not into maths. I just think about what is going on and to me then it falls into place. Basically open a shutter with a Lens with a hole let in some light onto something that is light sensitive (sensor). So varying those parameters give you different results but all it takes is to look at the image and decide its too light or too dark, do I like the light I have created or not. Then make some adjustments to one some or all of those parameters and repeat. With some experience you can get what you want in 5-10 frames and 20min. This first image is with the Fuji X100. Note the setting ISO400,f/2,1/640,23mm
