Thread: Flash Flaw

  1. #1

    Default Flash Flaw

    Good day everyone!

    Anyone can help on how to get around the problem of having f2.8 when flash is used?

    Seems the same for external and built-in flash, can adjust the shutter speed, but not the f stop... gosh!! How???

    I was hoping to reduce depth of field by using f4 - f5.6.

    Any Panasonic employee looking at this forum??

    Attached your external flash, then go to menu and there is a setting for external flash, change it from "PRESET (if I'm not wrong or something like it)" to MANUAL. The "PRESET" external flash mode will always use F2.8.

    After this you can change your F-stop. If in Auto exposure mode, use the program shift functionality. In other exposure mode I believe you know what to do.
