I got this flash together with the A7. I am having problem getting the IR assist to work. On my Canon, the IR assist just turns on when the scene is too dark. I can't seem to get this one to go even in a completely dark room. I have read the manual but couldn't pin point what I am not setting correctly. Anyone have any suggestions? I am an experienced shooter but this is my first SONY.

The AF Assist beam does not work in any any external flash when attached to an E Mount camera. The compatibility list below is for F43AM but it is same with all Sony flashes and E Mount cameras. Actually the AF Illuminator does not work even with the flagship A99...


Thanks for the quick reply.  Do you know if this is a limitation of the A7 or the flash?
