I got the SB-600 today and i've just noticed this.

In auto mode on the camera, say i've got a shutter of 1/60th and f4, the exposure meter is fine, but when i switch to P mode on the camera, despite still having 1/60th and f4, the exposure meter is telling me the shot will be underexposed? with the meter all the way over to the negative side? but when taking the picture it seems turn out fine..? iso settings etc also the same as far i can tell.

Any ideas? is there something im not doing right with the flash unit? (it's set to TTL)
