    Default Flash noob question

    May I ask how do I make use of the infra red to focus,
    without the flash firing when I press the shutter?

    turn to master mode, disable flash from firing, and use a dark box to cover the flash head to cover up the pre-flash (you can't disable the pre-flash IIRC.)
