    I think i know already. Its the coloured Corrugated cardboard right? The one that school kids always use for projects and stuff?

    So are you saying that the slave flash is triggerred by a sudden burst of light (aka the on board flash)?

    Sorry. Can you explain why your lens cannot focus when zoom in ?

    Yes, slave flash can be triggered by another flash. Please take note not many slave flash support re-flash.

    okie i get the idea.. tried to diffuse the on board flash with tracing paper seems to work fairly well but i will still get the shadow if its too close only other alternative would bouncing the on board flash which i tried but doesn't seem to work well with the diy thing i made or shooting further.
