Re: What is your "Flash Mode" setting?

I did not read all of the replies and I did not see any mentioning on "flash mode" on the flash.

On my FL-50, with the E-5 or the E-M1, under expose occurred with "FP TTL Auto" if the shutter is slower than 1/60s. If I raise the ISO to get the shutter speed above 1/125s it exposes fine. If the distance is further than 15 ft, it under exposes again.

If I change the mode to "TTL Auto" and set ISO to 400 I rarely have any problem. This setting works on E-M1 as well. "TTL" or "Auto" by itself does not work. I can't explain why this works but it does for me by experimenting.
