When I shoot from a few feet away with the built in flash, even set to -3 EV, the Nex 7 markedly overexposes. Is there a setting I don't understand, or is it a camera malfunction. The TTL doesn't seem to work properly.


So funny that you ask. I wanted to ask the same question, but this time for external flashes.

I also get the feeling the E-TTL system tends to overexpose up to 1 stop.

You can easily correct this by setting flash compensation to the right wheel click. And then dial in -0.3EV or -0.6EV.

Would be interesting to hear from others if their E-TTL shots with in-camera and/or external flash tend to be overexposed as well.
