Do you guys know of any off-cam and off-flash solutions to focus assist lamps?
I'm looking to take some photos in a dance hall where the lighting is so poor, a 50 1.4 hunts.
I have considered a split focus screen and manual focus, but this is a bit hit/miss.
Anyone modified an LED torch with IR led's with any success? Thinking of strapping one to the bottom of my cam to allow me to point the beam in the right direction, and control when it's used. May also need a mask over the torch lens to give contrast across the beam to allow the AF to work... punting a few ideas here that need development.
