That would be the last wrench on the right anywhere most of the other parts of the quasi english speaking world
The above works just fine in aperture priority so stick to that if its your thing the flash ec is seperate anywaygeneral rules for dialling in Flash exposure compensation in ETTL
if the background is brighter than the subject dial in + EC the amount depends on how much brighter the background is so you need a bit of trial and error start at +1 and work from that.
this is out doors bright sun etc
if the background is darker than the subject dial in - EC same as about the amount depends on how much darker the back ground is again start at -1
this is indoors in shade at night etc
don't leave the flash just in ETTL it will rarely balance correctly you need to practice balancing the ambient exposure with the flash exposure.
another general rule is expose for the background and use the flash EC to correct the exposure of the subject
hope that helps a bit
It does, but I have a jillion flash questions.
Without a flash, I am predominantly an aperture priority guy. With a flash, I keep hearing two schools of thought on flash settings when you don't have time to dial everything in:
- Rookie mode: Stick with whatever mode you usually use without a flash, use your knowledge of that mode to nail the ambient and heavily rely on tweaking FEC as you go.
- Let's get braver mode: Switch to M, guess/practice at average starting settings (before the shoot), say ISO 200, F/6.3, Shutter 1/80s, and then tweak as needed throughout the event, using the rule that shutter affects ambient exposure and aperture affects flash exposure. If either aperture or shutter are getting forced into values you that are problematic (shutter too slow to hold, shutter too fast for sync, or an aperture that is composition unfriendly to keep shutter where you want it, etc.), tweak your ISO to bring you back into settings that give you elbow room either way for flash and ambient exposure.
- Jedi Event Master Flash mode: Bend the spoon with your mind. Just instinctively know what to do.
The concern with events is uneven lighting, which makes locking in 'you're good, just shoot' settings next to impossible. Can someone give me a simple algorithm for managing this?
Also, I understand the hit to power by using HSS, but sometimes you have to use it, right?
So you guys reckon if I walk through with a gripped camera and 400mm f/5.6 around my neck, I'd be allowed through
Just weighed my entire kit, 8.1kg.
As a South African, it's disappointing hearing about the prejudiced attitude of my countrymen. Disappointed but not surprised.
That was nothing more than a 25 minute infomercial.
Knowing that going in, I didn't waste any time actually watching it.
It puzzles me why Canon won't out a customizable button a little further down. It would things a lot easier...
With Magic Lantern, you could switch keys and put the SET function on AF-ON and vice versa. If you use BBF a lot, SET might be easier to reach, at least on some camera bodies. It's not included in the standard ML distribution, but there are other key swtiching/simulation functions already there and you'd only have to copy/paste the code.
see this is why i love this site...seems if i use a slower 45mb/s 32 GB card it works ok
it was using a brand new 60mb/s 128GB transcend card that ML doesnt play nice with
but the card works fine in the camera if ML isnt being used
There's a tidbit in their install guide about using a 32gb or smaller card to first install ML. But after the initial install, larger cards work ok.
Not sure if this applies to you, but check it out: http://www.magiclantern.fm/install.html
