Just unpacked the 285HV today and my am I impressed. Still waiting on the triggers for off camera but such a fun flash to mess around with. Once I understood the dial and the meanings it worked out great! And also to set the iso the same on the flash and the camera helped out a lot too haha.
Any other tips on using the 285 hv. Do most of you use the auto settings or the manual? I messed around with both and the auto settings seem to be pretty dead on. I assume manual settings for different lighting that auto wont do?
