Group Flash: Choose a flash control mode and adjust flash level separately for each of the following groups: the master flash and groups A through C (Optical AWL selected for Wireless Flash Options), or the master flash and groups A through F (Radio AWL or Optical/Radio AWL). If Optical/Radio AWL is selected, optical control will be used for the master flash and flash units in groups A through C, radio control for the flash units in groups D through F. If Simultaneous Manual Output Adjustment is selected, flash output for all groups using manual flash control can be adjusted in steps of ⅓ EV by clicking the buttons, or in steps of 1 EV by clicking the buttons.
Quick Wireless Control: Adjust the relative balance between the outputs of groups A and B. The output of group C can be adjusted manually when M is selected for flash control mode.
Remote Repeating: Groups can be turned on and off using the ON/OFF option. If ON is selected, you can choose group flash output, the number of times the flash units in the selected group fire, and the number of times the units fire per second. Settings can be adjusted for each of the following groups: the master flash and groups A through C (Optical AWL selected for Wireless Flash Options), or the master flash and groups A through F (Radio AWL or Optical/Radio AWL).
