I have a Sony DSLR A200 and I bought a HVL-F-56AM flash. The flash arrived yesterday and it does not provide sufficient light to shoot pics. I have played round with the settings and th only way I can get it to shoot a decent pic in in manual mode with either a high ISO setting or a long exposure time. There is a RATIO setting that can be either off/on. When I use this setting it overexposes the shot unless I am shooting a longer distance or I am using the 17mm zoom. The major bummer to this setting is when I turn it off it automatically resets back to the TTL mode making me have to set th flash every time I turn it on. Now in the TTL mode I am using a 1/1 power level and the flash range can be either manually or automatically. Being not the best scientist and not seeing subtle changes I will go from one extreme to the other and see a difference in the lighting in the shot but neither of the settings is sufficient light for the pic. I originally tried this flash attached to the camera then via a remote cable. When the flash was attached to the camera the flash was insufficient. When I connected it remotely it was enough light however both the external flash and the built in flash were being used when I took a pic. Now this morning I am unable to have both flashes at the same time no matter what have tried. Does anyone have any advise to solve this dilema? Thanks.
