Flash Compensation

Sometimes you need to adjust the brightness of the main subject without changing the brightness of the background. The flash compensation function lets you do this by increasing or decreasing the flash output in the same way as exposure compensation for normal shooting. You can change the settings on the camera or on the flash itself. Generally, a positive value is applied for brighter subjects and a negative value is applied for darker subjects.
