Innovative, and effective too, eh? The extendable part is a goodie. Do you manually adjust the flash output when you use it?

And PS - Do you still use the beauty dish you made?

I haven't used this in a while as I sold the 100mm. From what I remember even though it's P-TTL I did used to adjust flash output by tweaking the flash compensation in the FN menu to balance flash and ambient light but the exif should be in tact to confirm. Would do it myself but viewing off my phone!

Beauty dish going good, used it recently for shooting the twins Wink I'm debating building a much larger one for studio work!
