Default O-shape dual flash ... part 2

As promised a picture of the rig



And most of the time (it's to dark to focus) I also add a ring light.



and one of the last results using paper bounce cards



Still not happy with the bounce cards, or the remotes but first I'll have to experiment a bit more.
(problem with the remotes is that the new batteries I ordered don't really fit )

Cheers

Ronny

Damn straight!

What is the problem with the batteries? on my old Soligor flash the battery compartment is really tight on modern AA batteries, old style zinc carbon batteries fit fine, but with alkaline or rechargeable batteries you really have to shove them in, and pry them out afterward.

Hi Ronny,

A very neat setup indeed! -- and you can't argue with the results.

I was envisioning using cords to fire the flash units, so I was thinking a mess of coiled cords and stacked hotshoe adapters -- the radio triggers eliminated that.

I'm too lazy and used to flash exposure automation though. . .

I'm seriously considering getting one of these with a pair of Sunpak PF20XD slave guns for a pretty affordable auto thyristor solution that could be fired with the popup flash. Though my Metz 15 MS1 can do this (it can be used as a "dumb" optical slave in addition to it's wireless TTL capability), the Sunpak guns could also be used as pocketable off-camera slaves for light duty "studio" type lighting.

. . . and I thought I was over wanting more flash stuff. . .

Scott

Thanks guys,

@Tachi, just ordered a few version 4 triggers from cactus, hope that'll keep me happy and 'll have fitting batteries but all the small cost's are adding up (not so) nicely.

@Scott, I'll have to stop to , i've got 7 flashes now the first costing about double the price of the rest. But try to explain that to you wife
