I am using a YONGNUO YN685 N GN60 2.4G on my Nikon 7100 and would like the flash to deliver a series of 0.25 sec flashes. On the flash unit I have it set to show MULTI 4 1Hz 1/4Sec duration. If I read this right it should deliver four 0.25 sec flashes, 1 second apart. In fact it delivers a very short, single, flash. If anyone is familiar with this flash, I would really appreciate help with getting the settings to provide what I need.


Many thanks

I wish I could help.


My go to is always YOUTUBE if I can't find someone who has one.  Failing that, try calling the place you bought it from.  I purchased my Godox 600 from Andorama and they have amazing customer support!

Mike, I have the same speed-light.  They're good lights.


Unfortunately, I never really used the Multi setting.  I suspect that it might be for multiple speed-lights.  To make it worse, I use studio strobes for my course, so I don't use speed-lights nearly as much as I used to.   As Art suggests, YOUTUBE might have the answer for you.  :)
