Re: What are the flash metering modes?

The DiMAGE A1 employs three metering modes; ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) flash metering, Preflash-TTL metering and Manual. The ADI flash metering mode combines distance information from the autofocusing system with information from a pre-flash exposure. On the other hand, in Preflash -TTL metering mode, the exposure is calculated with a pre-flash only. Flash emission control is manually selectable in three levels from 1/1, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16. Pre-flash TTL metering must be used when a diffuser is attached to an external flash or a filter to the lens. Attachment of those accessories may cause error in distance information necessary for ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) metering due to reduced entering light. While manual output control is active, pre-flash will not burst.

Fmay nikon d40 flash in not working..


Hi,
You might be shooting with a higher ISO or in settings where the D40 meter finds enough light and doesn't activate the flash.

Try changing the ISO to a lower one, like ISO 200 and take some test shots indoors, in a darkened room.

OR, you might have the mode dial set to "no flash". That's the crossed out lighting-bolt symbol. Just set it for P or another mode and you're back in business.

Hope this helps

Flash is intermittent or doesn't flash at all. I have tried different settings and flash modes with the same results. Low light pictures that are un-usable.


First of all, be advised that flashes are designed to light people just a few meters away, so that their faces are visible at night or when there's backlighting (very bright/sunny background and dark faces). It will not, for instance, have any effect on a landscape photo taken at night.
Please check if your camera has a manual flash mode. If so, you can set it up so that the flash will fire every time. Check the user's manual for the proper procedure.

The flash keeps popping up when I take a photo


The flash will come on because the light meter is reading that you need more light in order for your exposure to correctly turn out. If you think you don't need it, the flash will give you fill light. If you don't want it on, go into the menu, put the flash to "off" or run the camera in a manual mode and don't use the "green" auto mode. This should probably take care of it.

D80 SLR lens /flash prob lem


What are your other lenses? If they're not AF lenses, you're not going to get autofocus or metering.

Is your flash not working when popped up? Remember that the flash won't pop up automatically in Manual mode.

I think my flash is too bright?


Make sure that the exposure compensation is at zero. If that does not work, make sure that the flash is on automatic brightness. Check the manual if you do not know how to do either one of these.

CANON Rebel RTI Outdoor pictures are dark


learning to use light metering correctly can have its challenge.
the manual will guide you on how to set up to read light from the subject. spot metering a dark area will cause general overexposure, or a washed out look. spot metering a bright area will cause a dark image. if you are on spot meter and shoot two people standing together against a bright lit background, your meter will see between them if they are centered, and read all that bright background, setting the camera to a less sensitive combination of aperture / shutter speed, resulting in a dark image. use field averaging meter setting and be sure you are metering the subject and not the background. try shooting a wall that is fairly clear of other colors and uniform it light hitting it, you should have a correctly exposed image. since it works in other modes (at least 1, anyway) then it is unlikely you have an exposure compensation issue. that is the only other non defect issue that would cause your problem.
once you confirm that you have these settings correct and still get a dark image, its time to have it serviced.
good luck

With Macro flash unit attached, and using the closest subject distance, images are extremely over-exposed.


The camera fails to control the flash output automatically due to the high intensity of Macro ring flash, causing the image to be over-exposed. Please set the camera as below to prevent a undesired result. Camera and Flash Settings - Set the sensitivity to ISO 100 using the function dial of the camera. - Set the flash metering of the camera to Pre-Flash TTL from the recording-mode menu. MACRO RING FLASH 1200 - Set the camera exposure mode to A or M mode. - Set the aperture to f/6.7. - Attach a ND filter x4 (0.6D) to the camera lens. MACRO TWIN FLASH 2400 - Attach a diffuser to the flash tube units. In case the flash tube and the subject is too close, eg. Not using the arms, set the camera exposure mode to A or M mode and the aperture to f/6.7. A subject at minimum distance may still be overexposed. Use exposure compensation to obtain the best result.

My exposures come out inconsistent


You cannot use the E-10/20N in Program Mode with studio strobes. Studio strobes are not compatible with TTL (Through The Lens) metering. You will need to set the Mode Dial to Manual Mode. Exposure is determined by flash output , ISO and the distance from flash to subject. Proper exposure can be determined with a flash meter.
