The old Rogue Flashbender came in handy the other night at the jazz club on the Sony flash.
But what to do for the NEX 5N with its tiny flash? I sometimes use a mini soft box. Just put it over the little flash but I have to steady and position it with one hand. Makes it a little awkward to keep the camera steady.
So while I was practicing with the cameras and flashes today I came up with this.
- It works well (at least it works well in a room with 8 ft. off-white ceilings and walls).
- I can’t use manual focus.
- There’s no way to take a portrait oriented shot and have the flash point upward.
- Can’t strap it around a smaller lens.
But I suppose I could just hold the Flashbender by hand.
