    Default Question on Flash

    Hi everyone, a question on flash.

    i know flash can be broadly divided into 2 categories, Fill flash and Main source of light. And exposure metering is independent of flash metering

    In AV and TV mode (canon user), it's set as default as Fill Flash. Just wonder where would the flash meter off? the whole scene? does it consider the point of focus?

    Cheers

    It depends on several factors:

    1) Your camera body
    2) Settings and specific metering modes, also over-riding Cfn for some bodies

    For detailed information on exactly how EOS flash meters, with what patterns, on which bodies, Google the 'EOS Flash Bible'.
