OM-D. Strange behavior with flash
I tried shooting with flash yesterday, but could not figure out what is wrong. Here ismy setup:
OM-D with its little flash mounted on hotshoe is used to fire and trigger an Alen Bee strobe.
Setup works perfectly and the little flash is triggering my strobe each time i press the shutter, but....the photos are completely underexposed as if no flash was used at all. Seems like the flash is firing either too early or too late.
Fortunately I also have an EPM-, so I quickly switched cameras and the exposure was perfect for flash.
Both cameras were set on Manual, shutter 100/s or less, aperture 4. Iso 200.
One significant difference, which may have caused the problem:
OM-D flash set to Fill In (triggering of small flash and remote strobe was perfect but underexposed)
EPM-1 flash set to Full (triggering of small flash and remote strobe was perfect with good exposure)
How does Fill Flash differ from Full and what went wrong here?
