"How does the built in flash on the D7000 do fill flash?"


South Florida, US
          

My long gone FM3A had a fill flash button on the body so when I attached the SB-30 flash it worked perfectly. How do I do fill flash on the D7000?

Pop it up and have the flash mode set to TTL-BL.

What Brian said would apply to a Speedlight mounted on the D7000, but if you are using the built-in flash, and the camera is in P, S, A or M mode, set the flash so the indicator on the top LCD screen is only showing the lightning bolt.

In low light, you may want to use Slow sync.

Make sure custom setting e3, Flash Control Mode, is set to TTL. (There is no TTL-BL setting for the built-in flash)

You may also find it useful to dial in -0.7 or more of flash compensation, depending on the amount of fill you need.

Check pages 144-148 of the manual for more details.

The built-in flash is always in TTL-BL unless you set the camera to spot metering, then it is in Standard TTL. See page 146 of the English manual. It says:

"Standard i-TTL flash for digital SLR is activated automatically when
spot metering is selected."

Absolute true. My point is that if you looked on the D7000 for a "TTL-BL" setting or indicator, you would never find it.
