    the reason 1/125 is cos dun wanna have ambient light, normal household light is 1/60 or around there, at 1/125 u cut away them...

    if u wan ambient light, then have to use pure white else u have color cast on your product. and also u need a tripod for slower speed. and your background might not look nice.

    Tks... so in general using 1/125 or faster will reasonably cut down the ambient light, using f/13 & above + lowest flash output.... Roger Sir, will experiment that again. tks bro.

    after thinking and for benefit of others... maybe i elaborate (too free...)

    in general ya, 1/125 sometimes 1/250, but depends on your camera, if your camera shutter curtain is slow, fastest flash sync is 1/125 then 1/250 will have black banner, iirc 1/250 most models can, not all, 1/500 only some pro models.

    f13 & above is depending on situation, if your flash is not powerful, maybe at lowest it might be f5.6 or f8, depends... some is too powerful, you can use your diffuser to cut the power, a stofen omnibounce also can, or tissue paper or 70gsm or 80gsm paper... do as u deem fit.

    also, like above, if your flash is not powerful, dun have to use the lowest flash output, u can increase the power, u may even use up to the max, if for eg, u are using your macro, then at f8 gives u a very shallow DOF, so u have to increase the aperture, so increase aperture, increase your flash power also.
