Basic strobist help!
Oct 6, 2011

I've just purchased a YN460-II flash to complement my existing 5600HSD flash which I regularly use off-camera. The aim is for the YN460-II to act as a fill light but am having great difficulty getting it to work. My settings are:

Camera: SLT-A33
Manual: Shutter 1/160 Aperture 3.5 ISO 100
Flash: Wireless

5600HSD - CH1, Manual 1/1, WL on
YN460-II - 1/1, S1 (wireless)

In this configuration, I can see both flashes fire, however the resulting picture shows no light from the YN460-II. Even Increasing the shutter speed to 1s, I can see no light from this flash.

It appears that the YN460-II is firing too soon or too quickly but I can think of no way around the problem (the issue does not appear to be TTL pre-flash related and I have tried the YN460-II on S2 setting too).

Any help for a newbie would be much appreciated!
