    Question Camera setting for Neewer 750ii flash

    Sorry for asking so many stupid questions. I have just bought a Neewer 750ii, mainly because I cannot afford a 'real' one. My questions are: (1) If I mount it on the camera hot-shoe, what setting should the camera be on i.e. P, S or A (or anything else). (2) I have the wireless bits CT-16 to use off camera flash, what camera setting for this scenario?

    I am new to using flash so really need some constructive help

    Thanks

    Brian

    Short Answer: Start here with Flash Photography Techniques and here Bounce Flash Photography, both by Neil Van Niekerk.

    Long Answer:

    Part 1: My personal suggestion is that you learn to use your flash with your camera in Manual mode. This will make everything sooo much easier and give you the most control over your flash photography. A good starting point for shooting this way can be found here: Flash Photography Settings for Beginners

    Part 2: The (IMO) less-desirable route is using the flash in conjunction with TTL. Your flash supports TTL so you can try putting the flash in the hot-shoe, selecting "A"perture Priority mode, turning off Auto-ISO if it's enabled and instead setting the ISO manually (ISO 100 or 200 should be a good starting point). Now select a reasonable aperture for the conditions you're shooting in and... You're off to the races. You'll probably want to brush up on how to use Exposure Compensation as well as Flash Exposure Compensation if you go this route.

    You're welcome. Hope you find the information helpful. Learning to use flash isn't hard, it just takes an understanding of some basic principles and a little practice; it certainly ain't rocket surgery. I can't really help you with the off-camera stuff because I'm not familiar enough with your particular flash/trigger. There's plenty you can do, though, with a single on-camera flash.
