Re: High Res shot and studio flash - not working on EM1 Mk2

I know there was a delay time for flash charging in Focus Stacking & so thought there is no reason for it not being possible in High Res too, so I went looking & in Shooting Menu 2 there is the settings for High Res Shot which does allow for flash charge time (up to 30 secs) & also post shutter delay.

I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
