View Full Version : XA Newbie A16 Flash Question

01-30-2007, 09:12
New to this RF (actually all RF), as mostly used OM gear to date. The "flash" position appears to be 1/30th or 1/40th at F4. Wonder if can use the flash sensor (which appears to be at F4) as non TTL auto for fill flash instead of full dump as in the manual? E.G. could maybe use 100 film and lie to the sensor and put the sensor at 400 and then change the aperture to F2.8 for fill flash at 1 stop below ambient. I am told with this leaf shutter it syncs at all speeds--:-))quite cool. Thanks for any comments.
