Sto-Fen Omnibounce 400

_DSC2940.jpg (Shot 1)
_DSC2941.jpg (Shot 2)

These 2 shots were taken 20 seconds apart and shot in an empty road so as to eliminate any bounce flash. No post-processing was performed to these JPEG files.

Shot 1 was shot with a straight-on flash from SB-400. Shot 2 was taken with a Sto-Fen Omnibounce 400 put on SB-400 and flash adjusted to the recommended 60 degree angle.

I need to make more comparisons (using different subjects & situations) to have a conclusive statement but for the sake of this quick test, I think this Sto-Fen model works as advertised.

Camera Settings:

Exposure Program = Manual
Exposure Time = 1/60"
F Number = F4.5
