I believe you may have gotten part of your answer to me mixed up with another thread on underexposure problems with the D100.
What I had asked about, was the settings on the camera, i.e. - is Matrix the DTTL identification on the screen along with the matrix symbol?
And is just DTTL - just that, a DTTL image on the screen without the matrix symbol?
And speaking of the plus settings on both the camera and flash. The Nikon D100 allows you to adjust exposure compensation in either 1/3 or 1/2 stop settings depending on what you have set up in your custom settings. How do you get +7 on the camera. I know that the flash allows you individual increments, which makes it easy to achieve +7 settings. And in the final analysis, don't you agree that Nikon has a serious DTTL problem that needs addressing soon? Granted, as ingenious Americans, we will find ways to tweak and adjust, but isn't there some way that Nikon can become aware of this all?
So, which do you recommend? Just setting the flash on DTTL for shady and inside dark areas, or just adding a + amount to the camera and +7 to the flash?
