Hello all! Thank you in advance for All input!

I just got a job taking photos for a real estate company. So I am now the proud owner of the c-5060, and am learning my way around the camera. Here is what I am using..

C-5060

Quantaray 383 Super Flash

WCON-07C Lens (Required for the Virtual Tour Photos)

2 flash boosters and a wein hot shoe slave (just in case)

My question is this: Does anyone have any suggestions on the Base settings i should start with? I have to be on manual in order to use the flash from what I have gathered from playing around, and the exposure compensation numbers are always flashing red unless i point the camera out the window midday. Just looking for a base to start with so I can tweak from there. I think I just confuse myself the more I change settings around.

Thanks again!

What you mean flashing red? Do you mean where there is number on-screen from -3 to +3? It will be red if it is at +3 or -3, meaning the picture is over exposed or under exposed respectively. If this is the case then for +3either increase F-stop number or increase the shutter speed to bring it down to zero. If it is at -3 then do the opposite.
