Thanks John. As far as I understand, the blue numbers next to the "A" are GN's for flashes other than my Canonlite D- using the Canonlite D, which is designed for this camera, one should use the "A" setting (this is according to the manual).

Still, Does anyone know for certain if the exposure needle should indicate the mechanically coupled f-stop when using the flash? If someone who owns this camera and flash could check I'd appreciate it.
