Flash compensation with external flash
When you are using an external flash mounted on the hot shoe and you want to compensate the flash light with + or - ev is it enough to set it on the camera body or should you also set it on the flash itself? I have an SB25.
Thank you for your help.

It's my understanding that either way functions, i.e. you do not have to change the compensation on both the flash and the camera, one of them will do the trick.

To add, I think it was in Thom Hogan's flash guide that said that if you set compensation on both body and lens, it will be cumulative, so if you set -1/2 on both, you will end up with -1 flash EV.
