Snoot aiming advice - Retra LSD
TimG posted a topic in Lights, Strobes, and Lighting TechniqueSnootistas! I need some advice please. I'm using a Retra LSD on an Inon Z240 sitting on an Inon tripod. I activate the Inon Z240 focus/aiming light and the critter is perfectly light by the LSD. Because I'm using the LSD on a tripod, I know me moving the camera has no impact on the aim of the Inon/LSD. I fire the shutter, the Retra'd strobe fires - but the critter is in darkness. And I'm darned sure the flash fired but is not lighting where the aiming light is pointing. Is there some sort of offset between the aiming light and the strobe output? I would have thought not given the construction of the Retra LSD but can't think of any other explanation. If you use a Retra LSD off-housing (ie on a tripod) what is your experience of getting the aiming light and strobe output hitting the exact same place? Thanks! Slightly Frustrated in Bonaire
