8x11 flash with TLX

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Minox Photography : One Thread

Dear Mr. Tai:

What is the best distance to use the 8 x11 flash with the TLX? Since the flash is operating at full power, I have found that pictures taken with the flash are less than satisfactory. Thanks.

Kingson, it depends on the ASA/DIN speed of the film. I put a sticker on my 8x11 flash:

The smaller number is with ND filter.

Example, if you use Minopan 100, then the object distance is around 4 M, if you object is about 2 M, then put on the ND filter.
