NEX-6 + HVL-F42AM question
Jan 24, 2013

Hi everyone,

I purchased today a HVL-F42AM + ADP-MAA for my NEX-6. I am very happy with the few tests I've done so far but I have a question.

I will use it also with my manual lenses such as Canon FD 50/1.8 or Jupiter 9 85/2 and I want to know how to set the zoom level on the flash to fit correctly the focal length. Should I put the focal length calculated with 1.5 factor or without?

Example: if I mount the 50/1.8 should I set the flash zoom to 50 or 70? (it does not have 75)

Thanks for any input.


Sony Alpha NEX-6
