#20. "RE: AF bird lens advice needed for D60"
In response to In response to 19


Hyde Park, MA, US
          

Hi Marty,

I bought a used SB 800, as new is discontinued, and a Better Beamer flash extender. I've been pretty happy with the results. But when I take photos of yellow warblers from 20 feet on bright sunny days, the shadow on the lower part of the bird does not disappear with use of the flash. My camera data indicates the flash was in use, but the resulting photo looks not much different than with no flash, except I get a bigger depth of field. On the other hand, I've shot a flicker at 70 feet at 6:30 p.m. in shade, and got perfect results. I check my camera "readings" as to Hi or Lo with speed and f-stop, and try to always hit dead-center. So the questions are "Why do I still get shadows on flash shots in bright sun?" and "What can I do to correct it?" When I go out later today or tomorrow, I will use the SB-800 WITHOUT the flash extender on shorter shots, and see if that makes a difference. In the meantime, your thoughts on this situation?

Thanks,
Bill
