Hello all, I am working on using RTI to document the condition of two large murals. The equipment set-up we are using is: Nikon D5300 camera, PocketWizard MiniTT1 and Flex TT5 radio slaves, and a Bolt VS-510N flash on a boom. I always make sure that the camera, focus, and flash unit are set to manual before shooting. However, the flash will at random times reset back to Auto/TTL mode and readjust its brightness and/or zoom, thereby altering the exposure of my photos. I cannot figure out why it is doing this or how to fix it. Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there a setting somewhere that I am missing in either the flash or camera that would prevent this from happening? Thanks for any help!
I am planning to undertake H-RTI on rock art in Egypt. I am concerned that my Speedlite 600 EX-RT flash with battery pack will not cope with being set at 100% power for repeated use day after day, and will struggle with large areas (it has been working great for smaller artefact surfaces imaged in museum contexts). Can anyone recommend a studio flash, monopod and portable power source that they have use in the field. I am looking for kit that can be submitted to the rigours of the Egyptian desert and heat, so if anyone has advice and experience to share I would be grateful. I understand that the Alien Bee 1600, previously recommended by CHI, is no longer manufactured? Cheers!
