    I bought the Sony adapter to I can use my old Konica-Minolta 5600HS flash with my new NEX-6. The camera seems to control the flash well, with the flash changing its coverage as the lens is zoomed. However, one thing I can't seem to find is a flash compensation setting in the menus. It's got to be in there somewhere, right? Can someone guide me to it? The only flash setting I've managed to find is the Flash Mode in the Camera menu (Fill-flash, slow sync, etc.)

    I just sold my Nex 6 but I believe the flash exposure is under the menu where you find ISO. I think is the top right folder.

    I still have my NEX-6 :)  and hps3 is right. It's the "Brightness/Color" folder, 5th option. I sometimes program the Soft key B to it, the 5600 HS-D works a treat with fill-flash in bright light and flash compensation set to -2 to lighten up the shadows without obviously showing the use of flash.
