Re: I have dialed in +1 flash EV and then forgot about it.

Paul, Guy, Greg,

Thanks for your input.

No, it's not a settings problem. I'm not exactly a noob and I tried to play with every possible settings on the camera. My findings are always the same: the camera generally underexposes by more than one stop, but sometimes even more, making it difficult to rely on the TTL metering. At least compared to the very reliable Canon flash system.

Having to use workarounds as manual flash or automatic thyristor flash is unacceptable to me on a modern expensive camera. It's good to have the option for sure, but TTL should work perfectly most of the time, and it does not.
