Thread: over-exposed with Eastgear's Orionbounce

  1. #1

    Default over-exposed with Eastgear's Orionbounce

    bought the above at IT show...

    when i tested it on my sigma 500 DG flash, every pix goes over instead of having more diffused lighting

    any clue?

    Does it give consistent overexposed ? No accessories give perfect flash exposure. You need to flash compensate to give correct exposure ..

    some factors
    - your object is reflective
    - your flash is strong, you can compensate your flash to fire weaker
    - setup is too near to the object ( keep a constant distance )

    Mine same also.. there is a silver reflector inside the softbox which probably explains the overexposure.. I have set my settings to -1 FEC and the results are great.. pics well exposed in wide to tele coverage. Flash recycles much faster also due to lower output as well.
