Do anyone know if the Sony DSC-P5 always uses full-flash and then adjusts the sensivity or if it have metered flash.

Wich flash is best for this camera:
DS-125 or YS90DX.

Thanx for any help making me sort out these questions.

Aloha Oamdam...I have the SONY P-9 and am wrestling with the same issues. The literature with the P-9 says it meters the flash using a PRE flash for metering exposure within the 47 seperate lighting brackets which make up the photograph. The P-9 and P-5 are supposed to be the same camera save for the resolution difference.
As far as which strobe is better...I contacted Ikelite and they said their strobe outfits will not fit the tray / arm assembly which the marine pak mounts onto. I am currently using a 45w marine pak lamp, but am looking into the Sea and Sea strobe systems which are compatable with the marine pak housing and tray system. Hope this helps.
