Re: Question about EF-42 Flash used externally
In reply to skimble, Nov 10, 2012

Well maybe I read it wrong in the manual (wishful thinking?)

I know I read that the camera can fire an external flash with the pop-up flash according to the manual. What I am not sure about then is if the EF-42 is capable of being triggered externally this way. From the way I read your post, I am assuming it can't?

Edit to add: OK - I read through the flash manual again and I see now that this flash does not have this function at all - can only be used on the hotshoe or with an off-camera cord or radio trigger.

Thanks!
