When I turn my camera vertical, I do it by rotating counter-clockwise so the right side of the camera is up.

If I then rotate the flash head so the lightsphere points up, it is right over the SB600 sensor. I PRESUME this is why when I do this I get under-exposed photos.

If I shade the sensor the problem goes away ...

So ...

  • is may analysis correct?
  • anyone have a neat way to deal with it? (other than rotating clockwise -- I prefer to hang the camera from my right hand)
