Re: Zenitar 16 FE- pop-up flash picture

The P-TTL flash thing doesn't work with manual lenses.

If you have a non-thyristor flash and it is set to full output you have to do some experimenting. You can not adjust the exposure by varying the shutter speed: the shutter speed doesn't matter as the flash duration time is very short.
Instead you have to adjust the aperture until the exposure is right.

Here is a z-picture taken with the DS and the pop-up flash:

Paris, France 2006. Italy scores - 2 seconds after the last penalty shot - and we can guess who of theese three people that comes from Italy.

You take the flash guide number, divde with the distance and you get the aperture value. The picture above was taken while out travelling, I "never" use the pop-up flash and had to dial in the exposure until it was reasonably right.
