Re: X-T20 built in flash as commander...

I have used the built in X-T20 light to trigger a Metz M400 in servo mode. I set the built in flash to manual lowered it the lowest point where the M400 would still react. I used the swivel head of the M400 to keep the sensor facing the camera but the flash head set to bounce light on the subject.

Note that the above was just 'having fun' to see if I could do it and not a reall photo shoot setting. In reality I found it a bit awkward and would much rather have wireless technology. I also didn't like being limited to the flash sync speed of the 180 as HSS is not available when doing this.
