DPReview: X-T1 PC Sync after 3.0 Firmware update

DPReview member, RoundVu, noticed the following after upgrading his/her Fujifilm X-T1 Firmware to 3.0:

This may be coincidental but it seems that after updating to Firmware version 3, I can’t trigger my manual flashes with PC-Sync. I’ve taken thousands of pictures using it before to trigger my Godox V850 flashes and had no problems. Today, I can’t get it to work.

The problem wasn't that the camera was set to silent mode. Rather, it was that the X-T1 was set to MS + ES (manual shutter + electronic shutter); and MS + ES disables all flash functionality.

Which begs the question: why does a user have to first check if a camera has been set to so-called silent mode before flash is used? Second, why does setting the X-T1 to MS + ES turn off all flash functionality?

What is it about this photographer-friendly company that is actually photographer friendly? Which begs this question: what does photographer-friendly mean?
