The SB-24 also provides an infrared rangefinder for the two cameras in extremely low light levels and rear curtain shutter synchronization that puts the blurs on the right side of flash exposure with slow shutter speeds.
Light power, along with flash exposure time is used to calculate Light Energy: light power (lux) x flash exposure time (secs) = Light Energy (lux.
In addition to enhanced weather sealing and image stabilization, the EF70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens incorporates a circular diaphragm to create more natural looking background blur, and distance information to aid autofocusing and automatic flash exposure.
Then it hands off the automatic flash exposure decision to the i-Flash system, which adjusts the power output accordingly.
Among the new features found on the EOS Digital Rebel XT camera are user selectable metering and AF modes, flash exposure compensation control, improved E-TTL II evaluative flash metering and for the first time in this product category, custom function control.
With this setting, the camera takes a long exposure of the night scene (you may need a tripod) plus a flash exposure.
When combined with a compatible Canon camera, E-TTL II utilizes subject distance and other information that automatically modifies flash power, resulting in accurate flash exposure regardless of subject size, reflectance, or photographic composition.
D-TTL Flash Exposure Metering System - Photographers can take advantage of a host of creative options, even on location, and get outstanding results with all Nikon-compatible speed lights.
In addition to the on-board flash, the PowerShot Pro1 is compatible with all EX-series Canon Speedlites and Macro Lites and permits flash exposure compensation of up to +/- 2 stops.
The system compares the ambient light with the reflected pre-flash off the subject reported in all 17 metering zones and selects the areas with a small difference to be weighted for flash exposure calculation.
