I have just taken delivery of 2 RF60X's. One of them emits a smell of burning everytime i use it whilst the other one doesn't.Is this indicative of a faulty flash or just a characteristic of some?Thanks
Maybe? Or it could also be repeated high power output firing with the zoom range set to 24mm, where the fresnel lens gets heated quickly due to the close proximity of the flash tube to the lens.
Try starting fresh with the flash cool, set the zoom to 105mm, and fire a few shots. If there is burning smell then it's likely an internal component problem. Stop using the flash and return to the dealer for repair / replacement.
Maybe avoid setting zoom to 24mm when using full power?
Or turn on the Cooling Mode.
