I read GuyDagar's article, which was terrific and very helpful. I have tried to use off camera flash with FSS but it doesn't work. I tried turning the camera on and off silent mode, thinking that might be the trick. But no luck. I only get one photo with flash, no matter how many images I chose in the FSS menu. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong? FSS is such a great feature but so temperamental. Thanks!!

Hey there. I'm not sure what is going on, may have something to do with the flash being off camera? How are you firing the flash? One other thing that affects it is, you have to set the "interval until next shot" to give the flash time to recycle. Try setting it for a couple seconds to start with and experiment with it until you get it right. Not sure that's the problem, though.

See the menu...
