Sony DSLR SLT Flash Picture Problems
5 months ago

I own an Alpha A 350 and an A33 plus kit and other lenses plus a Sony HVL-AFM 42 flash. For the past 5 years I have struggled with getting correct flash exposures. I did a shoot two weeks ago for my company with strong window lighting and had to pray for each flash picture. Some were overexposed and others were underexposed. And synchro-sunlight pictures are also problematic. The cameras just cannot judge the correct exposure in the P or A mode. I love my A33 camera which is so light and small and the outdoor pictures are great but I might have to bite the bullet and go to Nikon or Canon. My friend at work has a Sony NEX3 with a Sony flash and his exposures are also problematic. I don't know if I will sell or hold onto my Sony gear but I seriously will be looking at the Nikon D7100 or Canon 7d or whatever replaces those models after the September 2014 Photokina.
