Re: D300 with SB-400

Actually, counter to expectations, FV lock does something besides
just do the preflash ahead of time - in many situations it uses
center frame spot metering for the flash value as opposed to matrix.


How do you know that? Do you have some test pics that show the difference between the flash using center spot vs matrix metering when FV lock is on vs off?
