1200AF on 7D
« on: April 09, 2006, 07:56:53 AM »
I am using an older 1200AF mocro flah connected to a Maxxum 7D via a new MFC-1000 Macro Flash Controller. Whenever I use the flash it produces two flashes, a pre-flash, then another flash for the exposure. This is not a good set-up for small animal pictures as the pre-flash can scare off the insect, etc. Is there something wrong here or is there a setting I should be using to avoid the pre-flash? THANKS

no there is nothing wrong, that is just how it works. As the flash controller isn't a ADI (d) controller it  has to do a pre flash to get the correct EV.
