OK, here the deal...

If i set exposure compensation = 0eV and Flash compensation to 0eV, the picture should be well balance with histogram that is balance in the middle...

let say EC = -1eV and FC = 0eV, the picture will be under expose with histogram balance more to the left...

Ok, now is the real question, say EC = 0eV and FC = -1eV, will the picture be the same as the one with EC = -1eV and FC = 0eV with histogram balance more to the left???

I am having a little trouble understanding flash compensation, is the overall outcome of the picture the average of both EC and FC??? if not, do correct me on this, thx!

PS: I am in my office right now, could play around with my camera and test it~~
