Can I use an external flash with the G700SE/G800SE?


Since the G700SE/G800SE do not have a functional hotshoe the customer will need to use an optical slave flash with a pre-flash selectable mode. They can also use the following optical trigger with a standard flash. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/764719-REG/Nisha_FSU_DIG_Programmable_Digital_Slave_Unit.html They can use Ricoh's GF-1 flash as well.

How do I scan barcodes through the lens (TTL)?


Note: The camera must have a memo list loaded in order to scan barcodes.

If the Memo dialog doesn’t appear, press the ADJ./MEMO button. 2. Press the left arrow to initiate the barcode scan. 3. Hold the camera close to the barcode so the blue aiming rectangle encloses the barcode. 4. The barcode data should now appear in the Barcode memo field.

Why can't List Editor or ST-10 see my camera?


List Editor and ST-10 write settings to the SD card in your camera, so if no SD card is inserted you will get an error stating that no camera is connected. If you do have an SD card in the camera you may need to format the card using the camera (Menu -> Setup tab -> Format [Card]).
