Really frustrated with a65 flash exposures
Apr 13, 2012

My flash pictures are so inconsistent, and the white balance is all over the place that I am seriously thinking of going back to Canon (40D, 5D, 5D2, 60D), my system for 6 years until Nov 2011. I've been reading posts and forums, etc and I can't seem to find the solution. I get paid to do my job and I already mangled 2 jobs, albeit small ones. My Canon exposures were so consistent and the controls so intuitive that using the a65 for paying jobs is very frustrating.
I am not trolling here. If you read my blog entries at

you can see my rave reviews of the a65. but having to constantly check my flash over/under comp every 10 shots is frustrating. I don't want to give up on the Sony because I really like its video implementation.

I will wait for the a99 to see if that's an improvement. Or should I get one of the remaining OVF Sonys?
I use the 43 flash with the latest firmware (1.05)
