I have a Metz Mecablitz 50 MZ5 which incorporates an automatic exposure calculation unit which mounts on top of the camera. I normally use this unit successfully on a medium format and 35mm camera which are full manual. Even with the correct aperture, film speed, lens zoom settings inputted into the unit the exposure is wrong with the Epson. The firmware inside the camera doesn't work in a linear fashion as conventional film so reciprocal calculations cannot be conducted ie: 1/60 f8 = 1/120 f6. There are look-up tables inside the camera that calculate the exposure in an Epson Digital Camera kind of way. Epson UK are currently investigating the actual values used and how the camera calculates them so I can compensate when using the flash. My advice to you would be not to buy a sophisticated flash for this camera. No information is passed to the flash which acts as nothing but a slave to the camera. Even with a guide no of 50 in my flash unit the pictures are always underexposed and the correct exposure is difficult to work out without knowing how it works in the camera.
