Additional Information
Notes on use
While shooting
This flash unit generates strong light, so it should not be used directly in front of
the eyes.
Do not use the flash 20 times in a row or in quick succession in order to prevent
heating and degradation of the camera and flash unit. (when the power level is
1/32, 40 times in a row.)
Stop using the flash unit and cool it for 10 minutes or more, if the flash is
triggered up to the limit for the number of times in quick succession.
Attach the camera while the flash unit is turned off.
If you do not do so, you may cause a malfunction of the flash unit or the use of
an incorrect luminescence, and the powerful light may damage your eyes.
Do not use the flash near people when rotating the flashtube during bounce
photography. The flash light may damage the eyes, or the hot flashtube may
cause a burn.
The battery level displayed on the LCD panel may be lower than the actual
battery capacity, due to temperature and storage conditions. The displayed
battery level is restored to the correct value after the flash has been used a few
Nickel-metal hydride batteries can lose power suddenly. If the low-battery
indicator starts blinking or the flash can no longer be used while taking pictures,
change or recharge the batteries.
The flash frequency and number of flashes provided by new batteries may vary
from the values shown in the table, depending on the time elapsed since
manufacture of the batteries.
