Using a flash (600r) w/ E-M5 in Manual...

    As a recent convert to full Manual shooting...I love it. Obviously a lot more flexibility and control...

    That being said... I only used Aperture Priority before whenever I shot with a Flash and now in Manual I find it difficult to dial in the correct exposure.

    Is there any settings that I am missing on the E-M5 that compensates the exposure readings when a Flash is connected?

    If that doesn't exist...is it just practice and test shots that are needed?

    Shooting in this mode, I think you need to use aperture to control your flash exposure and shutter to control ambient exposure. You can also manually control flash compensation.

    So actually I should use Aperture mode... I guess shooting RAW will help with any issues...
