Disabling on cam flash when using optical slave
Kah Heng Tan writes "One other tip. When you do buy a digi-slave, two ways to minimise the effect of your on camera flash is to dial down the flash compensation on your camera, or you could cut off some unexposed end of a developed E-6 film and paste it over your camera's flash tube. Slaves can be triggered by the infrared light that still passes through the unexposed film."
2. Is this procedure safe? Will it fry the on cam flash?
3. Does this infrared thing work on the Kako 9000 series? (preflash/single-flash, comes with omnibounce, 2 shoes, a stand for fixing a cam+the slave, and a cable I think. 70++)
