Hi Photo Nutters This question is for those of you with experience in both metering systems. 1. Can you really spot the difference? For example, do you need less FEC with E-TTL II than with E-TTL? Are the results more reliable in difficult situations? Do you feel less the need to put a diffuser on the flash if you are in E-TTL II? 2. Is there any indication (e.g. in the flash and/or in the camera) when you switch from E-TTL II to E-TTL or vice versa? 3. E-TTL II does not work in bounce mode, in macro mode and in wireless mode. That means that E-TTL II is only useful when you have one flash and when it's pointed directly forward. Am I right? If that is so, it seems that it's benefits are limited. Thanks for any answers, comments and enlightments. Happy shooting, Yakim. One last thing. Please don't direct me to NK Guy's article. I am looking for user experience, not theory.
