Hi all

Don't know if anyone can help, I can't get my S5 to trigger my studio flash kit without the built in flash firing as well. I've switched the TTL to commander mode and turned the on camera flash to a "-" but the camera flash still fires.

Any suggestions...

the flash you see is a pre-exposure coding flash only. It won't affect your exposure if you're a few feet away, but if it bothers you, try slipping an after-eight envelope over the pop-up.
