Re: Control epiphany!

Graham, pretty much as I thought, but it appears you don’t get the pre flash from remote flash guns (even though they’re set to TTL in the flash menu) is this what you have seen or am I simply not...

I seem to have stumbled across why I have been struggling so much with the off camera TTL control of flash systems....

Re: Inconsistent remote control of flash guns...

The other little note I've found in the FL-36R instructions is that TTL only works in P mode with an E5, is this still true of the EM-1ii? - the camera manual suggests not.

Re: Inconsistent remote control of flash guns...

Having laid it all out again, it was definitely user error in the location of the flash units in relation to the commander AND a lack of instruction book reading ;)

Re: Boxed M4/3 Samyang 7.5mm Fisheye

Have you any idea how the "output" compares with the 4/3 7-14mm lens (the old four thirds NOT the Micro four thirds!)

Is it a true fish eye round image or is it full frame rectangular?

Re: Inconsistent remote control of flash guns...

I’d set the commander to high. And yes they are 36 not 32 whoops!

Thanks!

no idea - so I just put mine to my ear and operated the focus... and yes it makes the tiniest of noises, which I couldn't hear when the camera was in it's normal position at the eye!
