by popular request, how to control specular highlights...I think it's quite self explanatory.

    My question is how did you time 2 cameras to take the 2 shots at the same time? Is this a feature of CLS/i-TTL?

    Or am I missing that the speedlights in the photo are producing a constant light source (unlikely -- since I don't know how to make a Nikon flash do *that*)

    My only experience with remoting is with the infrared remote that mated with my D50. Now that I shoot mostly with a D700 and D2H (and so far, only with a hotshoe flash) I haven't looked into the more expensive and elaborate remote systems those cameras require.

    Any exposition on that?

    Thank you.

    Heh. The D2H has no speedlight on it. I used the built in on the D200 to trigger the speedlights via CLS; the D2H was just there for posing. :)

    how thick is that perspex?
  • Ming Thein PRO 4y

    About 5mm. Anything more and you can kiss your flash power goodbye.
  • Goran Hrubi 4y

    yep,i found in my local store 4mm thick white opaque pleksi(perspex),.I'll buy one big plate and give them to cut it .
    Setup coming soon;-)

    Should work fine so long as it isn't too opaque.
