    Thanks
    As bro zerocool mention. Its one of the way, the other way is to set it to night portrait effect n flash to rear curtain, u'll get the pre flashes n final flash before the shutter closes.

    I use grip most of the time. The only time I took it off is when I wanna swap batteries (after charging one of them). The tripod plate stays on the grip from day one.

    Ok, thxs for the feedback. One thing i forgot to add, when grip is perm fix, u put ur battery in ur grip or still use the batt compartment? If use batt compartment, that means u still hv to remove the grip right? Unless we can charge the batt from the compartment, can we?

    But in night portrait mode, or when using rear curtain sync, I don't think the pre-flashes are for AF purposes
    Exploring! :)

    I thought all AF matters should had been settled before you press the trigger in any situation.... The pre flashes are either for flash metering in TTL mode, or FC sync isn't it?

    Yeah, actually not sure too but somehow the pre-flashes must mean something...

    I think so oo bro. The AF shld finish when the flashes red lights, i think the pre flashes shld be for metering purposes...hv to read up more on this n try more practice....
