    ZOOM FLASH COVERAGE
    Auto Zoom

    APPLICATIONS

    The section explains the various methods available to
    make full use of the flash unit.

    85mm focal length

    This flash unit employs auto zoom to cover a range of focal lengths
    from 24mm to 85mm. There is normally no need to manually adjust
    zoom coverage.
    • Press the shutter-release button partway down to display the automatic
    zoom coverage on the data panel.

    • Automatic zoom coverage is set as follows:
    Focal length in use
    24 - 27mm
    28 - 34mm
    35 - 49mm
    50 - 69mm
    70 - 84mm
    85mm or more

    Coverage
    24mm
    28mm
    35mm
    50mm
    70mm
    85mm

    • [24mm] blinks when a lens having a focal length of less than 24mm is
    used with auto zoom. Use of the built-in wide-angle adapter (p. 25) is
    recommended in this case to prevent darkening at the periphery of the
    image.

    Zoom may be set manually irrespective of the focal length currently
    in use.

    Pull-out the built-in wide-angle adapter for the 17mm zoom angle.

    Pull out the adapter.

    • Zoom coverage is changed in the following order.
    Auto zoom, 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 70mm, 85mm
    • [M.ZOOM] is displayed above zoom
    coverage when zoom is set manually.

    • The zoom coverage display on the data panel shows [17mm]. The
    flash range is also displayed.
    • When flat subjects are photographed from the front with very wideangle lenses such as the 17-35mm f/3.5G lens at the wide-angle setting, the distance between the lens and the center and periphery
    varies so that the amount of light from the periphery is slightly
    reduced.

    • The periphery of the image darkens when a zoom coverage less than
    the focal length currently in use is set.

    TEST-FLASH/MODELING FLASH
    One or more test flashes may be tried before photographing. This is
    particularly convenient for checking shadows when the flash is separated from the camera such as in wireless flash.

    2. Press the test-flash button
    (modeling-flash button) when
    charging is complete.

    1. Set the test-flash mode selection/hold switch to the desired
    mode.

    • Do not release the shutter while the flash is in use.
    • The strength of shadows will differ from that during actual photography.
    • Shadows will be lighter when using the flash in bright areas or outdoors, or when using bounce flash, and verification will therefore be
    more difficult.

    Flash once at the set light level (LEVEL 1/1~1/32).
    • Use this test-flash mode when a flash meter is used in manual
    flash mode (p. 36).
    • In multiple flash mode (p. 60), while pressing the test-flash button, the flash fires the number of times you have set.

    Flash three times at a rate of two flashes per second (guide
    number 5.6 at 24mm position).
    • Used to verify overall shadow.

    Flash 4 seconds at a rate of 40 flashes per second (guide
    number 1.4 at 24mm position).
    • Convenient for verifying detailed shadow for macro photography.
    HOLD The setting prevents mis-operation.

    • Photographs may be taken, however all flash operations,
    except use of the test-flash button and data panel illuminator,
    are locked.

    BOUNCE FLASH

    • The bounce indicator appears on the
    data panel.

    Bounce flash

    Normal flash

    The flash may be set to the following angles.

    Rotate the flash towards the ceiling or left and right while pressing the bounce lock-release button.






    Upwards: 45°, 60°, 75°, 90°
    Downwards: 10° (see ‘Close-up Photography’ p. 31)
    Right: 30°, 45°, 60°, 75°, 90°
    Left: 30°, 45°, 60°, 75°, 90°, 120°, 150°, 180°

    • The bounce lock engages at the 0° position. The lock-release button
    need not to be pressed when the flash is returned to the original position.
    • The flash range is not displayed on the data panel when the flash is
    rotated upwards or left and right. High-speed sync is also cleared.
    • Use a white ceiling or wall to reflect the flash. A colored surface may
    color the light. High ceilings or highly reflective surfaces such as glass
    are not recommended.

    29

    BOUNCE FLASH

    Strong shadows appear when flash is
    used with a wall directly behind the
    subject. In such cases the flash is
    directed at the ceiling etc. so that the
    subject is illuminated with reflected
    light, and the intensity of the shadows
    are reduced to produce a softer light
    in the photograph.

    CLOSE-UP PHOTOGRAPHY (DOWNWARD BOUNCE)

    BOUNCE FLASH
    Adjusting Bounce Angle
    An unsightly photo results when both direct light and bounced light
    from the flash are used simultaneously.
    Determine the bounce angle in reference to the distance to the
    reflective surface, the distance from the camera to the subject, and
    the focal length of the lens etc.

    Tilt the flash slightly downwards when
    photographing objects between 0.7m
    and 1.5m from the camera to ensure
    accurate illumination.

    Rotate the flash downwards while
    pressing the bounce lock-release
    button.

    • The downward bounce indicator
    appears on the data panel.
    • The rotation angle is 10°.

    Incorrect

    When flash is
    bounced upwards
    Determine the angle in
    relation to the table at
    right.

    MANUAL FLASH

    Normal TTL flash metering automatically adjusts the flash intensity to provide the proper exposure for the subject. Manual flash provides a fixed
    flash intensity irrespective of the
    brightness of the subject and the
    camera setting.

    Proper exposure is obtained at less than 1.5m.
    Proper exposure is obtained at more than 28m.

    • The flash
    indicator is not displayed after a photo is taken with
    manual flash.
    • ADI and pre-flash metering may be used with some camera-flash-lens
    combinations. Both ADI and pre-flash metering are handled as a type
    of TTL flash metering.

    Normal flash

    High-speed sync eliminates the restrictions of flash sync speed, and
    allows you to use flash over the entire shutter speed range of the
    camera. The selectable aperture range is increased, allowing portrait
    shots with flash in which the aperture is opened to leave backgrounds out of focus and thus accentuate the human subject.
    • The Maxxum STsi, QTsi, 400si, 300si and Dynax 500si, 500siSuper,
    404si, 303si, 300si do not support this function, and high-speed sync
    therefore cannot be used.

    • [HSS] remains on the data panel.
    • High-speed sync is cleared when
    is selected with the procedure
    described above, and a shutter speed faster than the sync speed can
    no longer be set.
    • It is recommended that photos be taken in bright locations. When photographing in dark areas the shutter speed will not exceed the sync
    speed, even when
    is selected.
    • The flash range with high-speed sync is less than for normal flash
    photography. Check that the subject is within the displayed flash range
    before taking the photo.
    • High-speed sync cannot be used with multiple flash, ratio flash, or
    bounce flash in the upwards, left, and right directions.
    • When using a flash meter or color meter, high-speed sync cannot be
    used because it interferes with the proper exposure. Either select
    to clear it, or select a shutter speed less than the sync speed.

    Types Of Wireless/Remote Flash
    The following three types of wireless flash are supported.

    [1] Using the built-in flash (p. 46)
    The following two modes are available.
    • Use only an off-camera flash unit
    (photo
    , p. 40).
    • Use the built-in flash, and an off-camera flash unit, to provide a light intensity ratio of 1:2 respectively (photo
    ,
    p. 40).

    Appropriate cameras and flash units:
    • Any camera on page 6.
    • A single 5600HS (D), 3600HS (D), 5400HS, 5400xi, or 3500xi.

    [2] Using two flash units (p. 47)
    The following two modes are available.
    • Use only the off-camera flash unit
    (photo
    , p. 40).
    • Use one flash unit attached to the
    camera, and another off-camera flash
    unit, to provide a light intensity ratio of
    1:2 respectively (photo
    , p. 40).

    Usable cameras and flash units:
    • Maxxum/Dynax 9, 7, 800si, 700si, or 600si.
    • Two 5600HS (D), 3600HS (D), 5400HS, or 5400xi, or one 5600HS

    WIRELESS FLASH

    Normal flash

    Photographs taken with the flash
    attached to the camera are flat as
    shown in photo
    . In such cases,
    remove the flash from the camera and
    position it to obtain a more threedimensional effect as shown in photo
    .
    Photo
    was taken using the camera’s built-in flash and the flash located separately from the camera, with a
    light intensity of 1:2 respectively to
    produce a soft gradation between light
    and dark, and natural shadows.
    When taking this type of photograph
    with a single lens reflex camera, the
    camera and the flash unit are most
    commonly connected by cable. This
    flash eliminates the need for a cable
    to transmit signals to the flash unit by
    using the light of the flash itself as a
    signal. This type of flash control is
    referred to as ‘wireless (remote)
    flash’. The proper exposure is determined automatically by the camera.

    • Use two off-camera flash units to provide a light intensity ratio of 1:2 or 2:1.

    Do not place the flash
    directly behind the subject

    Usable cameras and flash units:

    Wireless Flash Range
    The wireless flash uses a light signal from the built-in flash as a trigger to operate the off-camera flash unit. Follow the points below
    when positioning the camera, flash, and subject.
    • Photograph in dark locations indoors.
    • If you rotate the flashtube using bounce-flash function (p. 28) so that
    wireless/remote control-signal receiver points toward the camera, it
    will be easier for the flash to receive a signal from the camera.
    • Install the off-camera flash within the gray area in the following diagram. See the flash unit manual for details of the distance between

    ACCESSORIES
    Off-Camera Accessories

    Bounce Reflector V Set
    The following off-camera accessories
    are available.
    • Off-camera cable
    • Off-camera shoe
    • Extension cable
    • Cable CD
    • Triple connector TC-1000

    The off-camera cable allows the flash to be used from any position.
    Use of the extension cable allows of the distance from the camera
    to be further extended. Use of the cable CD and triple connector
    TC-1000 allows photography with multiple flash units.
    • With the 5600HS (D), the off-camera cable may be connected directly
    to the flash accessory terminal without the need to use the off-camera
    shoe. Use the off-camera shoe when the flash is used on a tripod.

    This reflector is attached to the
    5600HS (D) flash for simple bounce
    illumination photography outdoors,
    and indoors where no reflective surfaces are available. The unit folds
    easily for convenient carrying.
    • The flash range is not displayed on the
    data panel. High-speed sync is also
    cleared.
    • If you already have Bounce Reflector
    Sets III or IV, it is only necessary to
    purchase the adapter. The reflector
    part is the same.

    Use Of Other Accessories With The 5600HS (D)
    • The control grip CG-1000 does not allow correct control, and therefore
    cannot be used with the 5600HS (D).

    External Battery Pack EP-2 Set

    CAUTIONS WHILE HANDLING
    During Photography

    Temperature

    • This flash unit generates strong light, and should therefore not be
    used in front of the eyes.

    • The flash unit may be used over a temperature range of –20°C to
    50°C.
    • Do not leave the flash unit exposed extremely high temperatures
    (eg. direct sunlight inside motor vehicles), or in conditions of high
    humidity.
    • The response of the data panel becomes slower as temperature
    decreases, and it becomes darker at high temperatures. Restore it
    to normal temperature if these problems occur.
    • To prevent condensation from forming, place the camera in a
    sealed plastic bag when bringing it from cold environment to a
    warm environment. Allow it to come to room temperature before
    removing it from the bag.
    • Battery capacity decreases at colder temperatures. Keep your
    camera and spare batteries in a warm inside pocket when shooting in cold weather.
    may blink even when there is some
    power left in the batteries in cold weather. Batteries will regain
    some of their capacity when warmed to normal operating temperature.
    • This flash unit is not waterproof. Care is therefore required to
    ensure that it does not come into contact with water or sand when
    used near water. Contact with water, sand, dust, or salt content
    may result in a malfunction.

    • Do not store the flash unit with the alkaline batteries inside it.
    Leakage from the batteries may damage the battery chamber.
    • Due to the characteristics of alkaline batteries, temperature, and
    storage conditions, the battery level displayed on the data panel
    may be lower than the actual battery capacity. The displayed battery level will be restored to the correct value after the flash has
    been used a few times. When
    blinks to indicate that the flash
    cannot be used, pressing the flash on/off button in number of
    times may result in recovery of the battery. Replace the battery if it
    does not recover.
    • When using the lithium batteries, if the batteries become hot due
    to high temperature or successive use,
    may blink and the
    flash may not be able to use for a while. Wait until the batteries
    become cold before using the flash again.
    • Nickel-metal hydride batteries can lose power suddenly. If
    starts blinking or flash can no longer be used while taking pictures, change or recharge the batteries.
    • Depending on the time elapsed since manufacture of the battery,
    the flash frequency and number of flashes for new batteries may
    differ from the values shown in the table.

    Maintenance
    • Clean by wiping with a soft, clean cloth. If the flash has been in
    contact was sand, wiping will damage the surface, and it should
    therefore be cleaned gently using a blower.
    • Do not use cleaners containing organic solvents (eg. thinners or
    benzene) under any circumstances.
