RC Mode TTL Strobe Exposure

The Sensor makes DS Strobes compatible with the Olympus and Panasonic LUMIX RC flash mode, providing automatic TTL exposure. For accurate performance set the DS strobe to “TTL” and the camera’s flash mode to “RC”. Using the camera’s flash exposure compensation controls to make fine tuned adjustments to the strobe’s intensity. 

Manual Strobe Exposure

The strobe's output may be adjusted using the manual power settings built into the strobe (varies by model). Make sure the camera’s flash mode is set to manual. Choose the minimum flash output necessary in the camera to trigger the DS strobe. This will conserve the camera’s battery power.
