Re: MarvC,...

Flash exposure and ambient exposure are two different things..

Even if you use AE-Lock, your flash will still determine it's own exposure. It'll do so by using the pre-flash, metering the subject that is under the currently selected focus point (in spot metering, that is).

You must use FV-Lock if you recompose after focussing to get correct flash exposure.


After reading your post I wasn't sure if you were distinguishing AE lock and FV lock, I apologize if you already understood that..
