I Batteries
Note: Check the type ofbatteries used in your flash and read the ap-
propriate sections.
The following describes the proper use of batteries and how to prolong
their life. Incorrect use can shorten battery life or cause leakage, over-
heating, fire, or explosion.
• Cautions: Handling the Batteries
• Do not expose to name, or heat.
• Do not transport or store with metal objects such as necklaces or
• Do not use batteries that are leaking, deformed, discolored, or with
other abnormal states.
• Do not mix old and new batteries, batteries with different charge lev-
els, or batteries of different types.
• If the nash will not be used for an extended period, remove the bat-
teries. Note that various settings of the nash will be reset.
• The batteries may be warm to the touch immediately after use. Turn
the flash off and allow the batteries to cool before handling.
• Battery capacity tends to decrease at low temperatures below 10 oc
(50 oF). Keep spare batteries in a pocket or other warm place and ex-
change as necessary. Cold batteries may recover some of their charge
when warmed.
• Fingerprints and other stains on the battery terminals can affect a
number offlash firing. Thoroughly clean the terminals with asoft, dry
cloth before inserting batteries in the nash.
• Rechargeable AA Ni-MH Batteries
The capacity of Ni-MH batteries may be temporarily reduced when
new, after long periods of disuse, or if they are repeatedly recharged
before being fully discharged. This is normal and does not indicate
The nash draws a small amount of current even when off. Ni-MH bat-
teries that have been left in the flash for an extended period may be
drawn down to the point that they no longer hold a charge. Batteries
that no longer hold a charge even after repeatedly being discharged
and recharged have reached the end of their service life and must be
Ni-MH batteries can be recharged in abattery charger (sold separately).
Batteries may become warm to the touch after charging. Refer to the
instructions provided with the charger for more information. Use the
charger with compatible batteries only.
Ni-MH batteries gradually lose their charge when not in use.
• Disposal
Dispose of used batteries in accord with local regulations.
& Environmental disposal of batteriesis advisable.
& The apparatus is premised on use in warm climates.
Liquid Crystal
In the event that the LCD panel is damaged, care should be taken to
avoid contact with liquid crystal. Take the urgent action indicated
should any of the following situations arise:
· If liquid crystal comes in contact with your skin, clean the area with a
cloth and then wash thoroughly with soap and running water.
· If liquid crystal enters your eyes, flush the affected eye with clean wa-
ter for at least 15 minutes and then seek medical assistance.
• Ifliquid crystal is swallowed, rinse your mouth thoroughly with water.
Drink large quantities of water and induce vomiting, then seek medi-
cal assistance.
Although the display is manufactured using extremely high-precision
technology, it may contain pixels that are always lit or that do not light.

Caring for the Flash
To ensure continued enjoyment of the product, observe the following
• Storage and Use
If the nash will not be used for an extended period, remove batteries.
Do not store or use the nash in locationsthat are:
• exposed to rain, steam, or smoke
• very humid or extremely dusty
• exposed to direct sunlight or very high temperatures, such as in a
closed vehicle on asunny day
• extremely cold
• subject to strong vibration
• exposed to strong magnetic fields, such as near a broadcasting an-
tenna, power line, radar emitter, motor,transformer, or magnet
• in contact with volatile chemicals such as pesticides
• next to rubber or vinyl products
• Water and Sand
Exposure to water and sand can also damage the flash and its internal
circuitry and mechanisms. When using the flash at the beach or sea-
side, avoid exposing the flash to water or sand. Do not place the flash
on awet surface.
• Condensation
Sudden increases in temperature, such as occur when entering a heat-
ed building on a cold day, can cause condensation inside the nash. If
this occurs, turn the flash off and wait for droplets to evaporate.

Manual Flash Photography
Manual flash control is unaffected by reflections, making it the ideal
choice for pictures of highly reflective or unreflective subjects.
1Turn the camera and flash on.
2Choose from the I1Uetlr41 (APS-C) or MiijllhiM (35 mm) focal
length format displays.
3Adjust exposure compensation. Choose higher values to increase
flash output, lower values to decrease.
4Adjust zoom. Note that if II is selected, the flash not light the
entire subject if zoom less than the focal length of the lens.
5Adjust flash output by choosing a power ratio (PR) and confirm
that-~~- appears in the display.
6Settings are complete when the red backlight turns off and the
icon for the selected setting stops blinking. Wait for the ready
lamp to light before taking photographs.
• Effective Range
The effective shooting range of the flash in meters can be calculated
by multiplying the guide number by the sensitivity (ISO) coefficient
and dividing by the aperture (for feet, multiply the result by 3.28).
Flash range= guide number x ISO coefficient+ aperture (f-number)
The guide number varies with flash output and lens focal length.
Focal length in mm (35 mm format/APS-C)

ISO 100 ISO 200 ISO 400 ISO 800 ISO 1600 IS03200
1.4 2 2.8 4 5.7
For example, the range for a power ratio of Vs and a focal length of
35 mm, an aperture of f/4, and a sensitivity of ISO 400 is 10 (the guide
number) x 2 (the ISO coefficient)-:- 4 (the aperture), or in other words
5 m (16.4 ft.).
~The bar graph in the flash unit display shows the range at which optimal
exposure will be achieved; distances over 32 m (1 OS ft.) are shown by~.

Usingthe Wide Panel
. The wide panel is located above the flash window. When shooting
with wide-angle lenses with focal lengths as short as 20 mm (35 mm
format equivalent), extend the wide panel (ifOJ is selected for zoom,
you will also need to zoom the flash out to 24 mm). Flash output
drops slightly when the wide panel is used.
Bounce Lighting
Light from the EF-42 can be reflected (bounced) from aceiling or wall
in TTL mode. Under some conditions, the flash may create dark shad-
ows in the background when aimed directly at the subject. A softer,
more natural effect can be produced by bouncing the light from the
flash off a ceiling or wall.
