A friend just purchased this flash on the bay hoping to use it in normal
auto mode. He was attracted by the swivel/bounce main flash and the
small fill flash unit with auto sensor on the front.
Seemed like a good thing but testing it he finds that the front facing
fill flash wants to seriously overexpose the subject... maybe two stops.
Taming it has required both adding a diffuser at the front (to cut
output and tame harsh shadow) and lying to the flash about the aperture
or ISO speed. Since telling the flash lies about the aperture or ISO
does cause it to quench earlier it appears that the auto circuit is at
least working somewhat.
I know John Lind is a Metz user but don't know about this particular
model. Anybody have any experience with this flash that differs from
this overexposure behavior?
