    Greetings folks-

    I'm learning my TG-5 better and setting it up for underwater macro w/ a strobe.

    I want the flash setting to be on "flash fill". The problem is, I somehow lost that option, but only when I'm on microscope "magnify" (microscope control.)

    In other words, in plain old "microscope mode" the menu shows auto-flash options.

    But, when I choose "microscope control" that allows me to magnify, suddenly I get only manual flash options or RC options.

    I don't think it's always been like this. I think I somehow put it on manual flash and now I just don't how to change it back.

    SOLVED -

    You can't use TTL in microscope control mode. You'd think they'd put stuff like this in the manual!

    You would think that but the manuals seem to be deliberately dumbed down!

    OP, did the information I provided to your identical question on WetPixel help any?
