    I'm using a GF2 in a Nauticam Housing for underwater photography. I was struggling to get my external strobes working. My photos were going from grossly underexposed to white-out and no normal medium. Finally figured out the GF2 uses pre-flash which is apparently can't be disabled. Luckily my external strobes had a setting for cameras with pre-flash so I think its working now. Here's my questions. Why have pre-flash and why can't it be disabled?
