Ok dumb noob question... Are you guys/gals using your flash(s) in manual or TTL?
I am trying to decide on a flash to buy for "on camera" canon 5D Mkiii.
I have studio strobes, but that is not going to work in the woods!
Ask a simple question and get a slightly complicated answer.
I use mostly manual focus film lenses via adapters, so the camera has no idea about focal length, aperture...
I have a lot of Olympus OM film dedicated flash guns. I have used these with digital. I use manual camera mode and fill flash. I can either set the gun to fully manual or let the larger units, which have onboard meters, meter off the subject and control themselves and any TTL cord-linked units. (This may require a false value for e.g. ISO, to allow for magnification factors).TTL does not work with digital.
More recently, I have obtained some digital system-dedicated guns and they work TTL in manual camera mode (and other modes) on fill flash setting. I use the wi-fi to control a second gun.
