#6. "RE: SB600, Gary Fong Lightsphere, vertical"

Thanks all -- I THINK I have figured it out.

I wear glasses and wear them when shooting, I have the viewfinder adjusted for the glasses -- very nice.

With the lightsphere in the hotshoe and the camera horizontal, no problem.

With the camera vertical and the lightsphere rotated as suggested in the instructions that came with it, the sphere is quite close to the viewfinder and light gets in around my glasses.

If I put my hand between the lightsphere and the camera body it shades the viewfinder and keeps light from creeping in.

If I take off my glasses and put my eye tight the viewfinder the exposure is as expected.

I have had a problem with this for close to 2 years -- posting here forced me to look much more closely.

Not sure where I will take it from here -- but knowing, I can deal with it. And maybe I DO need to get the flash off the camera -- its just that doing candid's at our church, people already comment on the very large "thing" I carry around
