    Our one cat likes to sit on the bathroom sink. I think he thinks he's an owl or something.

    I could have used a little smaller aperture, but I love this. Flash was bounced straight up. 35mm 1/200 f/2.2

    Yes, his tail is balled up due to abuse from previous owners. He's 7 or 8 now.

    kitty is like wtf are you serious?

    that shot's a little soft. have since taken the tip to use a faster shutter. 1/200 is nice

    can someone tell me what the HELL the mm rating is on the flash? when i put a 35 prime on it says 35. it can go from 24mm-85mm. how does that change the flash?

    The speedlite zooms to cover the field of view of the lens you are using...so no power is wasted. 35mm lens = 35mm spread on the flash.

    You can manually adjust the spread if you want a tighter/narrower beam of light.

    The mm rating reflects the focal length of the lens currently used.
    If you notice it retracts, or moves the little flash bulb ahead according to the focal length. This makes sure you have the best flash coverage for the length you're using.

    Though you can manualy set this to get a little more creative with your flash work.

    Edit: you can also pull out the little flappy thing to increase coverage from 24mm to 14mm for UWA work

    it has the diffuser flap thing which sets it to like 14mm for the widest flash possible, it doesn't have the white bounce card thing though.

    is this a rhetorical question?

    we know he thinks that OTAP is nothing but elitist assholes who won't really help him so he'll go to the main forum for his kudos anyway:dunno:

    .

    I prefer the input of OTAP over the main forum 1000 to 1. But sometimes I get all excited and can't wait a day for a response :hsd:



    . x11ty

    I've gotten some input I didn't necessarily want to hear, but always what I need to hear. All you guys have definitely helped me improve and I still am. If I want to hear that everything I take is amazing and I'm the world's greatest photographer, I'll go talk to my grandma. :hsugh:

    I will post pics in OT simply cuz they will enjoy the pics. I'll post the same pics here and await critique from people that have been shooting.

    I just enjoy it so much, I try not to post whore in OTAP. It's just fun talking about it. I wish more people posted pics here. :(
