Re: OMD severe flash exposure problem

I must be the odd man out here. I always shoot flash with the camera in manual and the flash on auto. Did this even with my myriad of Canon cameras and Olympus before that.

While I can clearly see from the image data that the cameras are metering differently, I have no idea what mode the camera is in. Don't rely on Program mode for flash, or anything really.

Also, it's been widely noted that the OMD meters normally a bit under  so this would translate to flash as well I would think. Try the camera on manual and do some trial shots so you can learn how the camera behaves.  I would do the same for non-flash as well. And I'd get the FL600R too.
