5D Mark III: FEL causes preflash with full flash power!
Dec 18, 2013

When I use Flash Exposure Lock (M-Fn button by default, or I assigned it to * button), the pre-flash that is fired is very bright, looks like it's using full flash power.

I wonder if others have same effect.

Without FEL the pre-flash is just noticeable. Very bright FEL pre-flash makes people very uncomfortable.. And I've been always using FEL (then recompose) on other cameras fine. So on Mark III this whole FEL feature is broken. I can expect this from $400 camera but not from $3K one..

Thanks!

Canon EOS 5D Mark III
