Default Question About my Minolta 5600HS

I've never used an external flash before. This is the first time with my 7Hi. I spent about an hour tonight reading the owners manual and trying to figure out basic usage of the flash/camera combo with various bounce angles. I must be doing something wrong cause I find the flash isnt very powerful in P, A or S mode (havent tried M mode yet). It can't be the flash, it must be me. What am I doing wrong? Here's an example....please tell me what you think.

Steve Z,
Are you sure the 5600HS is compatible with the Minolta Digital Cameras like the 7Hi.
Before coming to any conclusion please make sure that the 5600 works as a dedicated external flash for your Digicam, as it would work for the Minolta's Maxxum/Dynax Series of Film cameras.

Yes, the 5600HS is highly recommended for the 7Hi. There is also the 3600HS which offers less power.
