I've been trying to teach myself the basics of flash photography. I'm having an issue which I don't know is user error or a fault with my equipment.
I'm using a Canon EOS 1100D with a Neewer NW565EX flash mounted on-camera, with the flash set to E-TTL and the following settings on the camera:
- Exposure 1/60s at f/8.0
- ISO 800
The image shows a narrow band of 'correct' exposure at the top, but the rest of the image is underexposed.
I tried the same flash on an EOS 400D with the same settings and got a proper exposure for the whole image.
Everything I can find online for this is talking about the maximum sync speed of the camera. For the 1100D this is 1/200, so at 1/60 this shouldn't be an issue. Am I getting something wrong or is it likely there's a fault with the 1100D?
