    Hi,

    Do you use any external strobe with your XZ-1 ?
    I use a D2000 but I have problem depending of the mode of the strobe regarding the mode on my xz-1

    Regards,

    Ponch

    Ponch,
    I'm (actualy my younger daughter) using XZ-1 with D2000 - not sure what your problem, but the strobe work well in any mode, both the STTL and manual although she mostly shot in manual modes (camera & strobe).

    Here few of her shot from our last trip

    Hi,

    Thanks for your answer. Does she use the cancel circuit or not ? In Inon website Inon says to use it in manual or auto (in inon) and nout to use it in STTL. It's strange. I must try to take my own picture next week but I try to find advices from person who have this camera.

    Regards,

    Ponch

    Ponch,
    The strobe is not with me now but as far I remember I put the magnet in. I have no problem to use the same strobe for different camera (G9, EPL-1 and XZ-1).
