    Sorry, can't remember how pocketbounce looks like, so did a search just now, it works almost the same as bounce card.

    Hope this help.

    Generally if you're unsure, a bounce card is always good, use aperture priority and leave the shutter & flash sync to the flash & camera. Don't worry too much.

    IMHO, if you are unsure during wedding, then use direct flash and set to aperture priority (F5.6 conservative). If bounce and not enough light = no pictures for delivery.

    turn out "ok"

    45- F4.5 EV-1.5 FE-2 (With direct flash)
    Turn out quite nice (background was better shown)

    30 - F5.0 EV-2 FE-2 (With direct flash)
    Turn out very nice (background was best shown) Risking hand shake

    just 2 cents
    just curious, you shooting in manual and still dial in EV?

    I set the EV first
    then play in the Manual mode.

    Mostly I used 'P' mode or AV mode for wedding.

    Can everyone give some input on the angle of flash?
    (this qn was raised in one of the reply)

    Is it straight up with bounce card?

    I will like to raise another qn:
    What setting for flash when inside HDB flat (indoors, white ceiling) ?
    Ballroom up 2 stop with bounce card, at xx angle.
    HBD flat? No bounce card up xx stop at xx angle?

    I tot direct with omni bounce is still a point source of light ( i read from somewhere ) and will still result in harsh shadows?

    I don't own an omni-bounce so I can't do any tests to confirm this. I have been using bounce card all the while for indoor shots.

    The softness of the light has to do with the size of the light source relative to the size of subject.

    So that why ceiling bounce gives the softest light on the subject.

    Omnibounce is act like a bare bulb flash, it give the best lighting effect when use in a room which able to bounce the light off the ceiling and walls plus some direct flash onto the subject.

    Hope this help.

    wow.. so much study into an omni-bounce.. so I've been missing out on a great piece of invention all these while.

    Is it worth to get it since it's so expensive? Experienced elders told me not to get it as a bounce card does just fine. That's why I din't get one.
