I know what you mean! It has not been an issue for me because the flashes lie flat on the umbrella and octobox brackets, thus disabling the camera's settings. So the on-flash settings stay as set.
If you set 0n-flash zooms and do not touch the camera's Zoom menu, and take a shot, do the set values stay as set?
Thanks for your help, unfornutely it doesn't resolve my problem..
If change the angle to 90deg like you did, the zoom level automatically changes to "--".
I can set it to every zoomlevel I want and it wil stay there, untill I change:
-The power level (eg: 1/8 to 1/4 in the in-camera-menu)
-The zoom level
Not a workable solution for me, because I want to be able to change the powerlevels during a shoot, that's why I bought these triggers.
I think we have to wait for an update from Pixel.
I mailed them a time ago, here's the (not very helpfull) conversation:
Today I received my Pixel King flash trigger set (1transmitter + 2recievers). It works ok, I can control my 2x Canon 430EXII's fine.
However, when I set:
Flash 1: a manual Zoom of (e.g) 24mm for a flash-thru-umbrella
Flash 2: a manual Zoom of (e.g) 105mm for a snoot or grid
Then, when I change the powerlevels of the flashes in the in-camera menu of my Canon 7D, it resets the zoomlevels of both flashes to the value given in the in-camera menu, for example 'auto' or '35mm'
So: I can't set my two flashes a different zoomlevel when controlling the powerlevels with the in-camera menu.
Can you tell my how I should solve this?
This product is designed according to camera flash Settings menu .
Thanks and Best Regards
