    External flashlight and NEX

    It's very easy to use an external flash with NEX5. Set small NEX-flashlight to lowest power or use a darkred filter (to avoid light by this flash).

    The NEX flashlight is used as a trigger for YONGNUOs in slave mode.

    I am using YONGNUO YN460-II ($ 46 incl. shipping) and a YN467.


    YN460-II


    YN467


    both

    Is it true that the cameras 'pre-flash' cannot be turned off? In which case, how does that affect this method of synch, and have you used it to make any other images?

    Sorry, I do not test cameras/flashes ... NEX5 & Yongnuos work well - that's it :-)
    And for prices €30 / €60 (incl. shipping from China)

    Seldom I'm using flashes - flashlight is unnatural light ... only using if necessary.

    PS: you can read a lot of nonsens from people, which cannot work with cameras ;-)
    Don't believe all ;-))))
