Re: R5 with Profoto A1X

Not sure of how much you used flash before so I start from basics:

Shoot2 Menu: External Speedlite Control
Flash Firing set to enable. The other settings are not so critical for Profoto, set them according to your preferences.

Shoot6 Menu: Shutter mode
Set to Elec 1st curtain or Mechanical. Elec 1st curtain for the highest sync speed, although you can just use HSS on your A1x.

Shoot7 Menu: Expo. Simulation
Set to Disable

(Although if the camera detects TTL flash or trigger it will set to disable automatically. Some people have differing experiences on this,  dunno why)
