"SB28 AF assistance with F5"



          

Is there any way to use the auto focus light on the SB28 other than in the center zone of the focusing grid. When I change the focus sensor to the sides, the auto focus light doesn't come on. Also, how can the auto focus light be used when the F5 is set to the contunious focusing.

Thanks in advance,

Allen

I don't know of anyway to accomplish this other than duct tape and a flashlight.....seriously, someone else might know of some sort of hack through the PC connection...

I am quite sure that the users manuals for the SB-28 and F5 state that AF assist will ONLY work with the focus area in the center and in single-servo mode.

Check my post to your same question in the F5 forum. Not to be a jerk but the moderators and the Admins will tell you the same there is no need to post the same question in multiple forum's.
