Deciphering D50 EXIF with SB600 flash

Discussion in 'Nikon DX DSLR' started by Flash, Sep 27, 2008.

  1. I was using my SB600 while shooting football last night. I was in TTL mode using varying exposure adjustments from Full to -2.00 on the flash.
    I was trying to see if the EXIF data would show what my setting was on the flash, but so far have not figured out what I should look for.

    Flash compensation- # always stays the same

    Exposure Adjustment- # constantly varies even with same setting on flash.

    Is this info recorded in the EXIF or am I just missing it?

    Here is an example EXIF
