Hello Gonzalu. Try this, Point your camera out through your front door and take a shot,exclude the sky if you wish, now attach a flash gun, turn the flash output down real low, so it isn't going to affect your shot, and take another shot. Is the second shot terribly underexposed, in any metering mode?

Hi Mike,

Just wondering in your above example if you are using auto ISO at the same time?

I don't seem to have the problem that you are describing but I do know that it is an issue when auto ISO is on with a flash attached.

I have always thought that Nikon should offer two modes when auto ISO plus flash is being used.

IMO, there should be a "key light" and a "fill Light" mode in auto ISO operation with flash.

Anyway, just a thought. If you are using auto ISO with flash, try turning it off and seeing if that works for you.
