I just bought a Sony A58 and the new HVL-43M flash. One of the main reasons I wanted this flash is ADI, Advanced Distance Integration. I found that this flash is automatic (that is it gives an "AUTO" indication in the LCD display) only in the "Intelligent Auto" and the "Superior Auto" modes. It apparently will not work automatically in "Shutter," "Aperture," or "Program" modes.
I thought I would get great exposures using "Intelligent Auto." But I get a wide range of exposures-some light, some dark. I wanted to use this flash for candid shots at weddings. But at this point I am discouraged about using it. Can someone help me?
