Couple little problems with automatic modes. Now from what I understand to use the flash automatically with the rebel, you have to have the camera in P mode.
P on Camera & TTL Mode on Flash : Results ended up making the camera behave as if no flash were attached, ( Selecting shutter speeds upto 1 second long with widest aperture ). Flash shows same aperture as selected by camera.
P on Camera & Auto mode on Flash : Camera setting shutter to 1/200 (Flash Sync speed ), but setting the apeture to the maximum value ( f/45 on the lens I Was testing ) always.
Tv (1/200) & TTL : Same as P & TTL above.
Tv (1/200) & Auto : Same as P & Auto Above
Av (f/5.6) & TTL : Same as P & TTL above.
Av (f/5.6) & Auto : Shutter gets set to 1/200 automatically on the camera. Apeture needs to be manually set on the flash to match aperture on the camera, once thats done shoots perfectly fine.
Manual and Mult(strobic) on the flash I use with Manual mode on the camera which works fine.
My question is, is there something I'm doing wrong, is there no way to use the Sunpak PZ5000AF ( For Canon EOS ) , with P/Tv/Auto modes in either Auto or TTL mode on the flash? Am I pretty much stuck with using either Av or M to utilize this flash? Also I read somewhere the TTL mode on the PZ5000 isnt E-TTL thus only works with Canon Film Bodies, is this true?
