Wedding with EF500
Posted By: joele, 09-18-2006, 04:59 PM

My first night with the Sigma DG EF500 Super and the lumiquest Mini Soft box on the K100d... (I never used an external flash before this).. most shots with the Pemtax FA 35/2

Worked out OK though the whole time I had -2 flash exp comp dialled in the camera and between 1 to 3 stops of neg exp comp in the flash itself depending on the distance from the subject.. So it seems the soft box screws up the flash sensors a bit?

Hi Joele,
they look great, the flash seems to have done a good job. Great little setup.

Thanks guys..

I've gone from a natural light / anti flash person to being rather pleased with the flash (esp with the softbox attached)..

Very happy with the sharpness of the FA 35/2 too, its a great little lens...
