Funny thing but (just in case you make the same mistake I did) don't forget to turn the lamp assist on. It is the furthest button on the trigger.mihazero said:I have just tried new v20 (beta) firmware (thanks Besisika) and here is what i learned.
On 5D mark IV TTL still overexposes, but not as much as it used to. Before my flash was always reading F8.0, regardless what my actual f-stop was, hence trying to compensate. With new firmware it reads f-stop thats set on camera, but still overexposes, by at least 3 stops. Manual has worked fine before, so, nothing new there. AF Assist lamp didnt work for me before, still doesnt.
I hope final version of firmware will fix these issues.

Oh good stuff! Thanks for letting me know.SecureGSM said:MODELLING LIGHT ON / OFF –
A function to remotely turn the modelling light On and Off on strobes like the AD600B has also been added to the X1 transmitters.
Double pressing the Channel button will turn the modelling light ON or OFF.
