When I trigger it off camera as a slave, with the EM5 flash, the results are all dark and underexposed. Any advice?
Do I need to just mess around with camera settings, ON camera flash settings and the Off camera Yongnuo settings till I get it bang on?


Are you setting the Yongnuo to S2 mode, it is possible to mix the flash with your camera`s TTL, a little trial and error may be needed to get what your looking for though.

I think I had it on s1 mode. Does the EM5 flash have a pre flash?

I will try it later on S2 Smile

I believe pre flash is only used in TTL, so if using TTL set the flash to S2.

Another thing, the Yongnuo`s can be quite fussy depending on there placement, they need to be facing the triggering flash.

I just practised with it and it worked better on S2 so thanks for that haha.

I heard that about the yongnuo, but i have had no issues. I have had it face away from the trigger flash, and even had a model hold the Yong behind there back and it still triggered...

Must have got the one in a million one Wink
