I have a Dsc HX400V which I use to photograph watches for my web (horasyminutos.com in case you want to check the veracity). Since watches are very tricky to capture properly I bought the Sony Ring flash which is great for closeups, but not for a picture of the watch on the wrist, or on a table from a distance. That is why I bought a Sony HVL-F60M flash.
Now my problem is that I seem unable to make it work wireless. I follow the instructions from Sony: I mount the flash on the camera, choose wireless on the camera menu -which automatically puts the flash in wireless remote mode-, then dismount the F60M and raise the inbuilt flash to serve as light meter.
But then the wireless option shows disconnected and when shooting only the inbuilt flash flashes. What am I doing wrong?
Also, it doesn't make sense that the inbuilt flash flashes too, does it? It completely spoils the use of an external flash.
Thank you all for listening.
