bought the above at IT show...

when i tested it on my sigma 500 DG flash, every pix goes over instead of having more diffused lighting :confused:

Does it give consistent overexposed ? No accessories give perfect flash exposure. You need to flash compensate to give correct exposure ..

yup... the overexposure is consistent alrite... i'm testing with my equipment tripod mounted with the same subject under the same lighting condition... the pix becomes over once I fix on the orionbounce... :think:

some factors
- your object is reflective
- your flash is strong, you can compensate your flash to fire weaker
- setup is too near to the object ( keep a constant distance )

Mine same also.. there is a silver reflector inside the softbox which probably explains the overexposure.. I have set my settings to -1 FEC and the results are great.. pics well exposed in wide to tele coverage. Flash recycles much faster also due to lower output as well.
