Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera
My camera over compensates when using an "off the camera" extra flash to help with more light. The photo ends up being darker than just using the normal flash on the camera.
How can I stop the light bounce with just using my flash and using other light source without my camera being too sensitive.
Its not clear which camera you are using and there may be different solutions to your problem....
All SLR digital cameras and most of the "higher grade" digital cameras have an option whereby you can adjust the intensity of the camera's flash. This can make the world of difference.
Then you also have the option of setting the flash synchronisation to respond to what Canon call "First curtain" or "second curtain". This can make a huge difference. If your camera is set for the flash to fire at first curtain, it fires as the shutter opens; and as it closes on second curtain. Sounds technical, but it is worth checking, as there is a difference.
You should also check what your settings are for the "off camera" flash. Synchronisation is key. It sounds as tho your off camera flash is way out of sync
