Hi DonalDuc,

Thanks for taking the time to post additional photos of your TX7 case. I see now why the TX7 can fit in the case due to the elastic sides.

Thanks again!

It makes no sense to make a picture within 1/150 sec and process it for 15 minutes :-|

Thanks Skylark and DonalDuc for your EXIF information

Are you using a slave flash behind or over the objects?

Thanks,

Not as flashy, but very functional:

No, it's my kitchen lamp (60 watt), which reflects at table top.

I seldom use flashlight ... last time only to test my YONGNUO YN460-II and YN467.
Used as slave both even work with Sony TX7.

That's interesting. When I look at the EXIF data for the following three photos that you posted on page-10 of this thread, it says that the flash fired. Yet the shadows of the plate and the fruits on the table contradict that the flash fired. Could you help me understand how that happened?









The TX7 that I just received is blowing out the subjects in flash photos under 4 feet or so. I wonder if it's defective?

Thanks,
Skylark

No, it is not defect ... you must use Slow Synchro! Then pictures are ok.

Flash On I use for longer distances (seldom), flash Auto I do not use.


Above pictures: if I don't want table top reflection of kitchen lamp, then I change position of camera :-)

I tried auto, and slow synchro and there's no difference in exposure for close subjects under 4 feet. I can't understand how you took close up flash photos of your fruit without blowing them out. And the shadows on the table indicate that flash was not used, yet the EXIF data with the pictures says that the flash fired.

I've been googling the web and see that many point & shoot cameras have a "flash is too bright" problem for distances under 5 feet. The problem with the TX7 is that it does not have user adjustable flash exposure compensation.

I'll post some test photos tomorrow to show how the flash on my TX7 is blowing out close subjects.

Thanks as always for your help,
Skylark
