Question about Exposure compensation and Flash compensa
OK, here the deal...
If i set exposure compensation = 0eV and Flash compensation to 0eV, the picture should be well balance with histogram that is balance in the middle...
let say EC = -1eV and FC = 0eV, the picture will be under expose with histogram balance more to the left...
Ok, now is the real question, say EC = 0eV and FC = -1eV, will the picture be the same as the one with EC = -1eV and FC = 0eV with histogram balance more to the left???
I am having a little trouble understanding flash compensation, is the overall outcome of the picture the average of both EC and FC??? if not, do correct me on this, thx!
PS: I am in my office right now, could play around with my camera and test it~~

I've never really been that interested in flash, my previous experience has been with manual SLRs and all I know so far is that the D50 does a fantastic job with flash. I've just done a little experiment and it's as you've maybe guessed, both are to the left and as near identical as not to matter.
I've got a long way to go before I can figure out all the possibilities but so far the camera is defeating my efforts at getting it wrong lol
