    Very nice setup. The only drawback, I guess, is that a big portion of the already low flash output power is loss during the double bouncing, so it may have problem illuminating an entire room at low ISO settings.

    Great work, nonetheless!
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    I see

    maybe u should do the following test:

    1. switch ur camera to M mode
    2. focus on something nearby like the battery
    3. set ur camera settings to
    a. f5.6 , 1/160 , ISO 50
    b. f8 , 1/160 , ISO 50
    c. f5.6 , 1/160 , ISO 100
    d. f8 , 1/160 , ISO 100
    4. resize the shots and post here

    i can;t use M mode to shoot becoz the flash is manual and offer onli 3 intensity to choose from, i used Av mode to shoot the test shots +/- 0 ev.
