Matching Fuji fill flash at night (using onboard flash)
10 months ago

Hi,

I bought a D610 and 50mm recently (my only lens so far), I absolutely love it but I can't match the style of the fill flash that I get on my X100 using 'P' mode no matter what I do.

I've tried dialling down the flash exposure and/or using slow sync but no matter what I do I either get underexposed foreground or harsh flash.

BUT, I can get a softer flash using the in built scene mode "portrait".

I know I can't expect miracles with the on board flash, but I'd just like to understand what the camera is doing in the scene mode to soften the flash like this.

Can anyone help?

J
