Autumn flash
4

I’m experimenting currently a bit with TTL pop-up flash, which triggers the Metz 28 CS-2 in auto thyristor mode. Worked very well yesterday with the RX100, where there is only one pre-flash.

(Un)fortunately, Nikon’s flash control is very advanced. It seems to fire a sequence of pre-flashes when it needs to do so. That means, you can’t sync a flash, which just ignores one pre-flash.

I know, that the V1 fires a sequence when the SB-N5 is in bounce position, and I had the impression that the AW1 also does it, when I recently used flash in wet conditions.

Anyway, it turned out, that in a lot of images today the Metz didn’t sync. In many it did.

This is the keeper of the day. I think it works well both in colour and B&W.
