    Hey,

    I'm using an SB-900, most often in TTL, and edit my photos in Aperture. Do you know if flash power info is available in Exif?

    Thanks

    Why don't you use an EXIF reader and look? :thumbup:

    And then you'll know what info is, or is not available in EXIF data.

    If I'd see it I wouldn't be asking this question ;) Does anyone here have any experience with this?

    Thanks,

    Thanks KmH, I know what Exif is, but the problem is that whether I set the flash to +2 EV at TTL or full power on manual (just giving examples), it always shows up as EV +1 (most of the time) or EV 0. I just don't get it :( And what does that "flash: 13" stand for?

    Help appreciated, Thanks
