"Custom Setting E4"


Ottawa, CA
          

I thought I understood this setting. I am using an Sb-900 primarily for fill flash. Previously Nikon cameras would not allow separate settings for flash and exposure, they were tied. E 4 allows that connection to be cut. However, I am not sure even after trying if I can detect a difference with fill. It seemed logical to divorce the two settings, and use the flash compensation to keep the fill at the lowest possible level. I suspect TTL is compensating for the compensation. Which means this setting may only be useful for straight TTL and manual flash. Any one else playing with this setting?

Thanks

Doesn't the Custom Setting E4 deal with a modeling flash? Set this to ON and the PV button sends out a test flash for you to check for shadows. OFF disables it.

I could be wrong.

My bad. What you say is true for the D7000. I was, and should have said so, the d7100.

E4 does seperate the the two, but manual or straight TTL is the way to go. TTL-BL does its own thing.
