Can somebody explain me the two Icon Z240 settings

 

- External Auto: I understand S-TTL and Manual, but what's that? Hybrid?

 

- Advanced Cancel Circuit: No idea...found something about pre-flashes (see my parallel post)...

 

All help welcome as always!

 

Best regards, Sascha

External auto works with your camera in manual mode but the strobe itself monitors and sets the exposure through the sensor on the front. Of course, you have to have the strobe pointed at the subject.

 

Advanced cancel mode makes the preflash much brighter than usual. This tricks your camera to make the main flash dimmer from the camera and then the strobe compensates. The point of this is to not drain your camera's batteries with the main flash and to shorten the cycle time.

Hey Sacha

 

If you have a  look too on the Reef Photo (in Fort Lauderdale, USA)  website, they have a very good explanation of the Z240 settings.
