Re: OMD severe flash exposure problem

Oh wait, I was holding the camera with my finger in front of the flash!

*sarcasm*

By the way, I already told you that changing the metering mode does not do anything to flash exposure. Just try by yourself. There is zero change, whether you shoot in spot metering or evaluative. Flash metering is independent from ambient light metering.

I'm not a noob, and I know what I'm doing. I just wanted to hear experience from other users.
And I can see that some people are experiencing the same problems.
Now the question is, do some specific cameras or flashes have problems, or are some people simply blind not to see there's a problem?
