Re: The disastrous 3.10 firmware update for A7R2

At first I found this to be bad, but in the end I found it to be ok.

I use Sony flashes and trigger them with the HVL 20 which triggers my 43's wtih both HSS and with TTL.

I simply push the 20 forward (turns it off) and set the shot in manual mode to get my ambient like I want and yes the face is dark, but when I get the ambient like I want I then put the flash back up and the frame is now filled showing the scene for focusing.

Works great and once you get the hang of it with this set up it works great and since it is TTL you don't have to readjust for ambient unless the light really moves allowing you to walk around the subject anywhere you wish.

I am becoming fond of HSS outside so I am looking at alternatives to get radio controlled rather than optical HSS and TTL .
