My statements aren't false, but maybe I haven't made them clear enough for you. There are many others on here that have said the same thing over the years (as you already know): When Av mode is used with Canon flash it most often works as a "fill flash".

Only if you're not using a significant amount of compensation. Without that crucial information, words like "behaves like a fill flash in AV mode" states that the mode determines the outcome, which is false. The outcome is determined by the balance of ambient and flash illumination, and that's mode-independent.

Can it be used differently? Certainly. Can TV/P/M be made to use the flash for fill? Certainly.

When I said the same thing you replied, "This is not true." So forgive me my confusion.
