When you photograph the subject located closer than 0.7 m (2.3 ft.) from the camera, the bottom of the photographed images may appear darker because the flashlamp is not capable of tilting down sufficiently enough to illuminate the subject. For close-up photography, it is recommended that you use an off-camera flash unit, a macro twin flash unit (not supplied), or a ring light (not supplied).
HVL-F60RM/HVL-F60RM2: You can tilt down the flashlamp only when it is in the upright position or tilted sideways by 90 ° in either direction.
When the physically long lens is used, the flash light may be obstructed by the lens end.
