My Flash EC seems to have always been a little wonky both with the pop-up and my Speedlight.
I had firmware 1.11 and just realized a week ago that v 1.13 had been out since Nov. 2019, so I installed it.
Now Flash EC does not work at all. I have reset the camera about 4 times, tried various different settings but no lucky.
For pop-up flash, typical settings would be:
Manual Mode, RAW, ISO Auto (400) and have tried also 100 and 200, f/2.8., One Shot AF.
I sit on my couch and aim at the wall clock with pop-up FEC at -3 and take a shot, and another shot with FEC at +3 and both images are the exact same exposure. Since firmware 1.13 I have not been able to acheive any different exposures using FEC either for pop-up or my 320EX Speedlight.
I wanted to try again before posting. No change using ETTL pop-up flash with -3 and +3. However using the Speedlight ETTL with -3 and +3 - I noticed a very slight output difference, perhaps a 1/3rd of a stop.
Numerous google searches using different wording have been fruitless as I have not encountered anyone with this issue.
Ideas please? Might I have a setting interfering with Flash Exposure Compensation?
Much thanks for considering this. FEC is quite a convenience and I have a three Autumn shoots in a few weeks. Would be nice tohave FEC handy.
