    now have my flash gun and the offshoe cable working correctly at last.
    Next weekend I'm taking some shots of a christening in France, My usual set up on an EOS5 is as follows
    1) I have a bracket on the camera and flash to get the flash along side the camera
    2) off shoe cable
    3) flash in TTL
    4) Av on the EOS5
    ususally get some very good results

    NOW as i'm new to combination on Pro1
    My intention is to do the same
    1) I have a bracket on the camera and flash to get the flash along side the camera
    2) off shoe cable
    3) flash in E-TTL
    4) Av on the Pro1

    Is this the best method - or do you have other suggestions[​IMG]

    I also would like to know how manual mode works.
    On the Flash gun I do not seem to get any flsh distance info displayed, I have modified the falsh output on the camera to full - but not sure what to do in manual and theres very little info in the pro1 manual
