How can I trigger an external flash for portraits with the HX-100V?

Re: Perhaps (maybe( this will help...

Sadly Syk-5 won't make internal flash Sync with external flash after my test, I tried to adjust the value of delay but it doesnt work whatever value I set.

The external flash does can be triggered but is just too early under forced flash mode, yet never triggered under red-eye skipping mode with normal flash setting()

The discription of the product says that Syk-5 will work if the preflash is 60ms-1.5s before the real flash. Then I thought the delay between the preflash and real flash is actually much shorter than the value that Syk-5 is able to catch up with.

I'm looking for other methods now.
