Funny you say that, I was messing with it this morning and remembered the X-Sync option, which worked perfectly when the flash was set to manual. Should give me some more breathing room to clear the purchase of the K-7 and Tamron 90mm until I need to get a better flash.

you'll have to find what works but your settings should be about the same for each shot.. ME????
i thimk flash and macro go hand in hand.. here's a shot of my rig. i use an omni bounce and the internal pop out defusser. seldomly from the top tho.



this is mainly the way i shoot.. from the side.



happy hunting

Awesome! My setup isn't that sophisticated sadly, just the flash head angled at 45 degrees and a self-made bounce card on the top.

Weather looks bleak as usual today so assuming I find anything interesting, should give me a good chance to try different things.
