YN-560 first shots with NX-200. Kinda Blue.
Oct 8, 2012

Hi all,

As there were some questions before about flashes, I thought I'd let everyone know that YN-560 works fine in S2 mode.  I use the NX-200's small included flash in Manual mode at S=180 with the flash at -2EV.  It still contributes noticeably to the exposure, but...  it's usually not so noticeable.  Haven't tried with my Velo "universal" cable (which can only fire the SEF-20a at full power), since I think I'll either trigger with the SEF-8a and dial down its EV (like in this shot) or get a cheap RF trigger.

The only model with enough patience for testing/debugging was Blue from Blue's clues... this shot was bare flash (no diffuser) on a light stand just outside the frame set on max zoom (105mm).  I think it was like 1/64 power or something.  If you look at her eyes, you can see that the SEF-8 was contributing.
