  1. Thanks tinplater. In the end its not the end of the world for me. Im just trying to find the best solution for my style of shoot and ive learnt the hard way braking two units for abusing them. Im more interested with how Sony can handle customer feedbacks such as this. Surely not everyone is in the same boat as mine but im sure for those who are would appreciate the changes in software update. Though still hoping theres still a workaround for this
  2. Yep. Which i think is stupid. Turning off and on flash or trigger physically is not ideal. I dont wanna end up braking them by excessively power cycling it. What upsets me the most is other manufacturers are able to turn them on and off in camera itself. Well the options are THERE. But the fact that its greyed out in P S A M mode is plain dumb. Defeats the purpose of manual modes.
  3. Correct mate! Its weird....i dont need to menu dive as flash mode is pretty much a custom function away. BUT if its still greyed out and im unable to use it, its pretty much useless is it???
  4. Thats weird. I guess it means ur very lucky. None of us has the features to do this unless in auto mode. Mind sharing a video maybe? Silent shooting is the only way to disable the flash at the moment. But when switching it back off to mechanical shutter theres a software bug that causes the flash to not turned on unless you power cycle
  5. Thanks tinplater I consistently need my flash to be on and off due to my interior work. Back in Canon when I didn't know that this feature was actually available through camera menu (enable/disable flash), I ended up breaking two sets of flash (one internally and one the on and off button) for doing it excessively. Just trying to avoid this from happening to my new system. The "flash off" that you mentioned is always GREYED OUT in P A S M mode, which I think defeats the purpose for them being there
  6. Hi guys Please bare with me as Im new to the system. Recently switched from canon 5d mark iv to sony a7iii. On my canon i was able to switch off the external flash without having to physically turn the flash switch off by going to menu and disable/enable flash. I think its so convenient whenever I wanna shoot with fill flash or if I only wanna get an ambient light with no flash. However in Sony I could not find a work around to it? Is it something possible? I know the fact when I switch to silent shooting, flash will automatically disabled. However when changing back to mechanical shutter theres a glitch in Sony (some are aware of this glitch) and flash wont fire until you turn off and turn it back on or sometimes even having to take it off from the hotshoe (defeats my purpose) I dont know why the "flash off" option is always greyed out in P A S M mode? What's the purpose of having that then? So the question is Is there any way for us to disable the flash temporarily by going into the menu without having to physically switch off the button on the flash? My flash is godox tt685s Thanks
