    Got invited to a bonfire party down on the sand by the river. There were fireworks, free beer, and lots of friends -- and my father in law is in town, so we had free babysitting, which is totally (maybe) the best part. I brought the rokinon 12, and the 56 1.2. I also brought a flash, but couldn't get it to fire on-camera, and it was cold enough that I didn't feel like menu diving to figure out why.

    Shots...

    After an hour, with a massive coal bed, it got HOT.

    Someone tossed a few fireworks (wrapped in foil) into the fire and yelled RUN!

    Cool set!

    On the flash, did you turn off the camera before putting the flash on?

    95% sure I did, yes. It works with the remote commander on it - I've used that a few times in the past week, and haven't changed any settings that would affect it.

    That and being on electronic shutter are the two most common things. But, I'm betting you were using the mechanical shutter.

    Def mechanical shutter. Maybe I had my shutter speed too high, but A) I severely doubt it given how damned dark it was, and B) I'm not sure the camera wouldn't still send the signal to fire the flash anyway... oh well.

    Yes, it will still send the signal to the flash. But you will get shutter lines. Just for future reference.
