    Nice bit of photography. The only way this could possibly be better is if the helmet worked as a popup flash.

    Not as a pop up flash, but it does a half decent job as a flash diffuser.

    Now I suspect I need a Vader helm to sit atop my aging K20D >_>

    Horst,
    I used a storm trooper bobblehead, here's the Vader bobblehead:

    Have you got it securely mounted somehow, or is it just sitting there?

    I was thinking it could be modified to sit a cold shoe under the bobblehead, and then clamp that onto the K20's accessory shoe - it would get a few interesting looks in public and with some cleverness one could give enough clearance for the built-in tinystrobe to pop up and fire...

    Anyhow, cracking shot! I approve! :D

    After I took this picture, I realized that the bobblehead helmet will fit over the pop-up flash.

    At high ISO, wide aperture, and close distances, it'll even work as a diffuser.
