Exposure compensation and Flash compensation - BIND THEM

It will be quiet comfortable when exposure and flash compensation have option to bind them together. :)

My Canon G9 and G7 have flash and exposure compensation separated. Most of the time when I make exposure correction: Firstly I correct exposure compensation and after that I correct flash compensation.  >:( This is quite uncomfortable, because It takes a lot of time.  :'(


On my old compact when I raised exposure compensation +1/3, flash was raised automatically +1/3 too, etc....    When it needed, it was still possible to change flash compensation, but usually it was not necessary. 8)

I suppose it would be possible to implement this by monitoring the exposure compensation propcase by CHDK and by updating the flash exposure compensation propcase whenever changes are noticed. But Canon's user interface will not update with the overrided flash exp comp value (meaning that if you look at the flash exp c. setting, it will show an incorrect value or return you right back to what the original value was, and in any case it will return to the original value if you change it). This means that CHDK OSD should also include the flash exp compensation setting whenever this override automation kicks in while flash is enabled in an automatic exposure mode.
