I'm hoping for a little clarification. I just got a set of inon 330s and I'm having a hard time understanding the manual.

Can someone explain the ev control switch and it's use on ttl vs manual.

The advanced cancel circuit switch. Should I have it on the up position only when shooting manual?

Hi,

You are in good company regarding the Inon manual!

For TTL:

Advanced Cancel Circuit button in its "Off" position (i.e. Up).

Main switch set to STTL or STTL low

Ev Control switch in position "B". If this is not exposing correctly, you can use position "A" or "C" to lighten or darken the image respectively.

For Manual:

Advanced Cancel Circuit button in its "On" position (i.e. In).

Main switch set to "M" or Full. 

Exposure control from -0.5 to 16 via EV Control Switch. If in Full mode, the EV control switch does not affect the output.

This should get you going. Cameras can be a little quirky too

Why couldn't the manual just have said that? Thank you, that was helpful and straightforward.

In my experience ranging from underwater camera gear to million dollar molding machines, translations from Japanese to English are always bad.

Manuals these days for almost anything you buy are pretty poor, companies relies on someone setting up a forum and crowd sourcing support.  Some of the worst are European products where all they give you is a page of pictograms - like an actual manual with words is not cool anymore.

I'm not totally unused to that but I was surprised that I didn't find a lot of good info online considering how popular they are.
