Question about Canon Speedlite 430EX TTL Flash
I recently bought a speedlite 430EX to use with my Canon Rebel. I get consistent under exposure (at least a stop) no matter what I try. I took the flash and camera to where I purchased it from and the employee took several pictures of me with proper exposure. I brought it home and I am back to underexposure. What am I doing wrong?
Make sure it is not set to manual 'M' on the display. To get it to shoot in ETTL (Through the lens) press the mode button and it should read ETTL in the top left corner. This then means that the light is metered thorugh the lens and you are not relying on the manual settings.
Hope that helps. I had the same problem when i first got my.
By the way a brilliant all round bit of kit. I have traveled the world to some fairly extreme temps and got it wet (Rain, humidity, sea spray to deserts and serious dust) All good.
