"RE: FLASH (UNDER)EXPOSURE WITH THE D100"

Hello everybody. This is my first post!

First off, thanks for all the great advice that has led me to the D100, SB-28DX, 24-85 2.8-4, 80-200 2.8 and 85 1.8.

I have been noticing this underexposure using the SB-28DX myself and I have found a few of solutions.

Well for one thing, I always use a sto-fen flash diffuser http://www.stofen.com/
And I THINK that maybe DTTL Matrix uses preflash to set the exposure and this preflash doesn't go through the diffuser, therefore when the diffuser is on the exposure is off by -1. However if I press the mode button on my flash and change it from DTTL MATRIX to simply DTTL the results seem better. (Is anybody else who's having under exposure problems using a diffuser?)

I will go away and do some tests this weekend. But I wanted to share my experiences so far. Here are the 3 settings that seem to work better.

DTTL Matrix +1 flash exposure comp (with diffuser)
DTTL Non Matrix (with diffuser)
DTTL Matrix (without diffuser)

I've also noticed over exposure with the built in flash in SLOW SYN set to A @ 2.8 @ 1600 ASA at a close distance. Is this because I am asking the flash to put out a lower power than it's capable of?

Great site! Thanks for all the useful info!
