How not to test your Cactus Wireless Flash Trigger
Posted By: xs400, 02-09-2009, 09:57 PM

We all take bad shots sometimes, this is just one of many I have taken. You know, when using a K20 and no brain you get some pretty bad shots. The Cactus wireless trigger works well with the AF-360FGZ flash - but it's best if you don't hold the flash directly in front of the camera. I might be wrong, but I think this shot is over exposed in the center.

Yep. overexposed and you've got some bad sensor flare going on there too!

It's actually a pretty cool shot. There's an illusion of transparency being made in your head. hehe, that doesn't read very flattering but not sure how else to word it.

How's the retinas?
I'll assume the xs400 moniker is from the name of a Yammie you once loved?
