    Re: Nikon D3200 Issue with External Flash

    Thanks for all the great information. I just moved way too quick on buying the flash. I have some learning to do. Thanks again for pointing me to the direction.

However, I don't know if the YN560 zooms manually or automatically? Automatic would require some portion of the hot shoe communication, to follow the lens zoom automatically (if it does?) I don't know how those might react in camera Auto mode?
    ​Thanks Wayne for your knowledge. I'm just not that sure. There are too many variables that I'm not familiar with.

    See the proceeding discussion in this thread. The YN560 III flash is a manual flash unit and will NOT do TTL (through the lens metering). You will have to have the knowledge to set everything manually to use this flash.

    Re: Nikon D3200 Issue with External Flash

    I have no wisdom to add, but a related problem with hooking up a studio flash. Setting at f5.6 and F8 on manual and 100 iso as usual results in total wash out. Variations in shutter and apperture are equally useless. I get the impression that camera remains on ISO Auto as a flag on the information screen blinks out that message. Is there a setting I am missing?

    Have you disabled Auto-ISO in the Shooting menu? What shutter speed are you using? Have you checked the Exposure Compensation setting as well as the Flash Exposure Compensation setting?
