Re: Understanding E-TTL's metering...

ettl is not perfect. It tries and sometimes it actually works. In evaluate mode the flash will return off the closest thing it hits. Great at paries or when you want the backgorund to go dark so yo get grat closeup head shots. average tries to average a large area and all distances. plan on using the + or - comp. on the flash a lot. I normally set the flash to +1/2 in ettl and +1 if I bounce it. OUt side if I am using fill flash I start with ettl - 1/2 YOu want the fill to brighten but not control the light
