Balance On-camera / Off-camera flash
Apr 22, 2014

Last year I took my 5dM3, 85mm 1.2L, 2 x 600XT - one on camera with softbox for fill and the other off camera held by my wife. It was a mobile setup that I used to take photos in the halls

This is an example output, full set here

I was thinking about doing something similar with my EM-1 + 25mm 1.4.

Due to the much reduced weight in the camera and stabilisation I could use it one handed whilst holding out-stretched and off-camera softbox with flash. This way I won't need to rely on my Wife and won't have to heft the 5dm3 all day.

I think I used ETTL with a ratio balance to get the flash right.

Is this something I can do on the EM-1 easily? either use the flash that comes with it for fill and one off hand, probably corded?
