8. The use of external charging box
You can buy YONGNUO external charging boxes like SF-18C or SF-17C and connect it to the charging port of the speedlite.
After flash, the charging box will charge the speedlite.
9. High-speed continuous shooting
10. Reflection Flash
Bounce flash means to take photos by making flash light head
aimed at wall or ceiling and using the light reflected back from
the ceiling or wall to light the desired object, so that the shade
behind the object can be decreased to get more natural
shooting effect.
If the wall or ceiling is too far, the bounce flash may be too
weak to get enough exposure. The wall or ceiling should be
even and white in order to get efficient reflection; if the
reflection surface is not white, color cast may appear in photo.
-59-
11. Use Reflection Board to Take Photos
With the reflection board flash, draw the reflection board and the
wide-angle diffusion board out from the light head at the same
time and then push the wide-angle diffusion board back. In such
case, if this product is being used to take photos, it will produce
a highlighted point on the eyes of the subject and thus make the
eyes charming (catch light). This function can reach optimal
effect when the flash head is up 90°.
9. Use Wide-angle Diffuser
Pull out the wide-angle diffusion board, push back the reflection
board and arrange them as per the figure; in such case, the flash
scopes will extent to 18 mm and the flash effect will be softer and
more natural.

the slave unit’s angle toward the master unit and distance from the master unit.
Note: Setting the slave unit as separate c or n can slightly improve the success rate of flash.
3. Underexposure or overexposure of photo
Check whether the shutter, aperture and sensitivity (ISO) of camera are set too close to the limit of flashing, or whether
the exposure compensation, exposure bracketing and other settings relative with flashing are correct.
Because of the differences among different types of cameras and the personal preference, you may meet the whole
overexposure or underexposure when using this product, and so try to adjust it through the flashing compensation or
exposure compensation.
4. Is the FEB exposure range set anew every time?
You can access FEB setting through camera menu or lock FEB setting through Fn advanced option setting to avoid that FEB
will cancel automatically when completing three shooting tasks. The number of setting option is 03. It is ok to set the “FEB
auto cancel” disabled.
5. Underexposure of photo
Please check whether your speedlite is set with exposure bracketing and the exposure order is “-→0→+” You can access Fn
advanced option through camera menu to set the order of exposure bracketing as “0→-→+” or enables “ FEB to cancel”.
6. Vignetting appears in photos or only part of the subject is illuminated?
This product has a designed light head zoom range of 24-85 mm, and is currently not compatible with full frame camera
system. You may pull out the wide-angle diffuser to widen the flash range.
