In Topic: Softbox vs. diffuser for YS-D1's

22 May 2015 - 08:53 AM



Your shutter speed is set really high, unless you're shooting sunballs, I set it more like 125th/180. I'd try to get it a little closer and position your strobes a bit closer, you simply aren't getting light on your subject (at least in #1).


I experimented with the 100 vs 120 diffusers and found the 120s are simply too wide, I was getting backscatter on the outside edges of my shots no matter how far away I positioned them. The 100's are fine and with power set to 2/3rds you should be able to light up the world.


We have a free handbook on Strobe Positioning that should help as well.

See what you can arrange in Palau? From what I've read Yap didn't get hit bad.

You might want to check out our Maintenance Handbook. Warm water and vinegar will dissolve salt, maybe a spray of silicone lube and light grease. You can take out the main o-ring and put it in a baggie inside the housing.
