Hey folks, been searching the web and can't find an answer.
I have a 56AM flashgun, and I want to use it as a kicker for some portraits. My key-light will be a Norman 400w strobe with an umbrella. Now, my question is this; I know I can use the 56 as an optical slave with the on-board flash with my A700, but I can't seem to get the 56 to fire when the Norman fires. Does it not pick-up the flash and use that to fire, or am I missing a setting somewhere? I currently have HSS = On, WL = On (so it works with the camera flash) and Ratio = Off. I put the 56 in Manual mode, and it says it's on Channel 1. Am I missing something, or can this flash simply not be a straight Optical Slave?
Thanks in advance.
