does the force flash create a built in timer? if so how long does it delay?

You shouldn't need a timer with the AF unless you put it on a bait pile and then one or two deer will use a whole roll of folm. Good luck with yours. MC.

What sensor are you using? force flash takes 5-8 seconds to recharge.If you are using the MS20 then change R26 to a 220k resistor, it will give you a 10 second delay

davered1,
I haven't modified my MS20's since they were built a good while back. Do I just swap the R26 resistor with a 220k resistor to get the 10 sec. delay? Nothing else?
Thanks

yep, all it does is change the 2-4 second test mode to 8 -10 seconds, 330k is supposed to give around 15 seconds.You should do this swap even if you think 2-4 second delay is enough, some of the cameras will require a longer shutter press than 2-4 sec to make camera fire after it sits awhile

What difference would it make if you made the change and then put the sensor into auto mode?

Makes no change to the auto mode, it is a 70 -90 second delay, but can be retriggered and time starts over, cam could  freeze if held for to long( 3 minute). unless you use the olympus infinity jr. I don't think the ywill freeze, even if you hold it for 5 minutes.

(I think) TMkarren knows more about this camera if he's kicking around??

fadetoblack76,


If you do a search on the Rs pir I am pretty sure thatsomeone figured out the resistors for the delays.

It was way back last novemberish I think. Tinhorn might know he was playing with one of them, I know someone did but can't remember which they were
