[Question] Is Flash exposure compensation available ?

Yes, you can adjust the light intensity of internal flash. The Flash exposure compensation is a good option for situations such as; you'd like to reduce the flash amount when close photographing at macro that would tend to be overexposed by the flash, or a case in which you'd like to use an auxiliary light to make less of a shadow on the subject in backlit conditions.

This feature is available from : Shooting menu > [Flash Exposure Compensation]. You can set the light intensity from -2.0 EV to + 2.0 EV in increments of 1/2 EV or 1/3 EV.

The step value of the compensation can be set with [Exposure/Flash Comp Step] in the Setup menu.
