Thanks balagan for this interesting feedback. I assume you use them in manal mode, not RC mode ?

Hi folks,


anyone got a try on UFL-3 ? I'm considering it as potential replacement of my Z240s for my E-M1. Would be interested in feedbacks on TTL accuracy in different types of scenes (WA, fishes ...)

Which AF mode are you using ? They are described on page 73 of the manual.

Hi Bear35,

I assume you are talking about the lever which push the AEL/AFL key on the back of the E-M1 which is at the top rear of the right hand side of the housing. The behavior of this key can be customized. Press menu, scroll down to the gear symbol, select Gear A menu, and scroll again to AEL/AFL. Now you have up to 4 modes to determine what this key can do. In Modes 1 and 2, it locks the auto exposure. In mode 3, it activates S-AF if your AF is set to S-AF or MF. In mode 3 or 4, it starts the C-AF when your AF is in this mode.

When changing this setting, you have similar explanation displayed on the screen.

Suggest you check the user manual as there are some relationship with the trigger/pre-trigger behavior (check on page 98).

I confirm what DivingMeCrazy advise. I just made the test, where the underwater mode is assigned to either Fn key in one of MySet preset. The flash fires every time you trigger. When switching to another MySet where the underwater mode is not assigned, the flash doesn't fire anymore. The procedure to configure the E-M1 is provided in the Aquatica AE-M1 user guide (page 6).


Another (simpler ?) way to do so is to access the "Direct Control" menu by pressing "OK". Scroll vertically to reach the flash settings and you can choose between always on, red eye reduction, always off, 2nd curtain and manual value (info key + rear dial to change the value by 1/3 step from full to 1/64).
