This morning I set the camera to 3200, 1/60 & f4 in a reasonably dark room and put the Metz on Auto. Got the warning beep and when I took the shot it was overexposed. I then put it in manual and set it to the lowest output level - 1/246. Same over exposure as Auto. So basically the ISO was way too high for the lowest flash output level.


If you put a Sto-Fen diffuser on the flash to absorb & diffuse some of the light, would this be an acceptable work around for you in this high ISO situation? Perhaps another option is setting the flash width to the shortest focal length the unit allows.
