I think you've got the directions backwards. The flash reacts to the metering mode selected in the camera. So if you set spot, you will ONLY get TTL - it won't do TTL-BL at all. If you set matrix, you get the choice of TTL and TTL-BL. I think CW is like matrix.

> It didn't work, and I got annoying ambient light (with a strange coloration) by setting only the flash and not the camera.

I'm not sure what "it" is that didn't work. If you set matrix, then set TTL, you should get what you want. (And as above, I think CW is the same.)
