Bug report? a2500

Hello,

I got CHDK working today for my a2500 and I did some test.
It seems that tv and/or ISO override do not work when the flash is forced (tv and iso forced by chdk, flash forced by the camera menu)





Is this because the flash is adapting it's power to my override or is this a bug?
Thanks.

Looks pretty normal to me. 
In your pictures,  the Tv and ISO are where you set them - when the flash fires, they are by chance the right settings.  When the flash does not fire,  the pictures are underexposed.

Seems pretty consistent to me.  Am I missing something ?

p.s.  You really are not getting ISO 10 though - lower limit is usually about 80.

The duration of flash is probably shorter than the shortest exposure time used here. Try repeating the same test in daylight, outside.

I see what you mean now.  And srsa_4c's answer makes perfect sense too.

Well I was expecting the same underexposure effect as I increased shutter speed.
But as srsa_4c said it, flash duration is faster than my faster shutter speed.

I did not know that. I was expecting it to be 1/25 or something like that.

One other question then, I did the same thing while disabling chdk override. the camera took a picture with
ISO 320, tv 1/60 and flash (the same picture).
And it looked less exposed than my chdk pictures.
What kind of magic is that? post processing?
