John it looks like on this flash you can override it just as easy as on auto.
Often not the case with many flashes which I end up using on non ttl.
Why go auto when you can over ride easily on TTL?

I think some cutting back on ambient light is part of the bargain
because if you don't any flash at all would be over exposing. You've
already exposed it right with no flash!

I know that makes sense!
