Re: I shoot with the flash in

manual mode and it never overheat again. I was using my A99 with HVL-F58AM at ISO 800 f3.5 1/125s. The flash was toggled amongst 1/8s, 1/16s and 1/32s. The whole trick is to shoot at higher ISO so that you won't use so much power from the flash.

Thank you, 1/8 and 1/16 are set in the memories now but I think it is a band aid solution. Flash, in general, should not overheat this fast under 1/1 setting.
