Okay, We're gonna move on. What? I want to show you sort of take us out. We're going to show you this, um, this secret meter that's built into some flashes, that sort of cool, and they will finish with some questions and answers and set up for tomorrow. And we're sort of at that point where I really am giddy to show you this next thing. And so what we're gonna do here is I'm gonna start by showing off feature that's built into canon speed lights. Okay, this is built into canon speed lights. It's also built into Nikon speed lights, and it may be built into other speed lights as well. I know our quantum flash has this. What kind of flashes have this? Now, this is one of those things that sometimes it feels like first class and coach class, right, that the some flashes have some cool stuff that others don't. So, for example, the 5 80 x two has this built in. But the little brother, the 4 does not 5 80 x two Has the auto focus assist? Being the little brother does not. The 5 80 x two has ...
the ability to remote control flashes. The little brother does not theirs. Those different things. This has double the power than the little brother. The same is true of of Nikon Flashes. The SB 700 doesn't have some of the features that the SB 909 10 has. So this is one of those things that's Onley in some flashes, and it's old school. This is what old school flashes used to use before the ninja was around day, and I forgot the technical name of this thing. Somebody please tell me what it is. There's some people out there like how? Because, you know, it's a built in light meter sounds something like thyroid, but does not. It is a resistor, thyroid, something. But what this does is there's this little dot right there in the French. See that that is a light meter. That's what that is. And so what this does, is it meters light a little bit differently. You will set on your camera the eso value and the aperture value that your camera is using and what the flash will do. This works on camera off camera. Doesn't matter what the flash will do it is when you're pointing this at a subject, it will turn on the flash. The flash is gonna come out just like ninja does. It's gonna come back. And as soon as it feels like there's enough light hitting the subject, it shuts the flash off so it doesn't go through the lens. It just looks and says, Is that enough light based on what you've told me? Yes. Turn off. That's how it works, Okay? And so it's a little round trip. It works right there. Now to get this to work all you can in people, grab your cannon flashes. Make sure your cannon flashes an e t t l mode. So it should just be an e t t l mode. You have it on camera, off camera. It doesn't matter. It will work. So hit and hold si dot fn on up her left hand corner. This button right up here on the upper left hand corner is push and hold it. And then you're going to see this little thing that says f n and I might say, and something else. So what I want you to do is turn the dial so I'll show you guys here, turn the dial until it says function five. Okay, function five and then push the set button and you're gonna get a flashing number. Usually 80 Make that zero a three and hit, OK or set. Okay, Now hit the pilot. I'll take you out. And now notice. It says E in a bunch of numbers. Some stuff. Okay? You just messed up your flash. No kidding. So what you did is you said stop using a T T. L. We're using an external light meter e specifically this one on the front of the flash. And now what you can do is notice. It's asking you I s o aperture value. So you set those two things. So we're gonna do here, is we're gonna push the send button once. Something over here. Somebody home conceit. Push the set button once and now I eso is flashing. And you put that on Whatever I s o your cameras on, I'm gonna put it to 100. You're gonna shoot? I eso won actually put on 200. Sorry. 200. Okay, you can push set button once. Push it twice. Now it's asking what the aperture value is. I'm just at the aperture value to nine. Okay, that's all I have to do. Now, I know that I can put my camera Any camera. I s 0 200 f nine. And then down here, there's a scale and says anywhere within 2.3 feet and 20 feet. This flash is gonna be able to handle it. It can shoot anywhere from 2. all the way up to 20 feet, and it'll work. What about night guns? Can they do that? Well, sure. Of course they can. It's a Nikon. Okay, so in icons, you saw how crazy this was to do this with a can and have to go to custom functions yet to go. Blast set, set, set. Right. Nikon people, this could be very, very complicated. So let me start with t t a mode. Okay, so stick with me. This is a very, very in depth and complicated to do this on a Nikon and the SB 900. What? We're gonna use you push mode, rotate that A Okay, so I know he's not crazy. So that's that's really what you do. So a um is saying that it's it's sort of aperture priority. You're gonna go in there and do the same thing. I could do the same thing. So let me show you how you set this up. So I'm gonna go in here and it's asking me for the aperture value. So says f number so I can set it to whatever I want. I'll set it to 5.6. The one thing I don't like about the speed light the night constant light is now I wanna change my eyes so to 200. How do I do that? There's no button here to change that. To change that, you have to go to the menus on a 900 at the push and hold. Okay. Once you get into the menu, you have to scroll to the I s O. Then you can hit, OK? And then you can change that to whatever you want it to be. So we're gonna change it down to 200. They're good. 200 going the wrong way. Sorry. 200 dirties. And now that set exit. Now I'm Aiso 200 at 5.6. Okay, we have our Nikon We're gonna stick a ah, a pocket wizard on it so we can trigger it again. You could use a cable for this. You could use some other things to do this. We're gonna make sure it's firing. Firing? Yes. On the Nikon. The built in meter is on the side. It's this little hole right here. If you've wondered what that little guy is right there, that's what it is. So when you're doing this, it's right there. Make sure you don't cover the meter because it won't work. Okay, so now we have a Nikon, right? We have a cannon. We're at 5.6 Eso 200. Okay. All right, I'm gonna come over here. His point that in that direction and make sure this is firing it is. Okay, So this is all being controlled by my, uh, my canon. My canon is there, and we have a proper exposure, and we're gonna show that appear because we're tethered and so you can see that this is pretty crazy that we're letting the flash figure out the exposure. Now, the spectator highlights I don't like this is just a flash just blasting away. And so we can see some craziness. But, Kelsey, go to the other side. We'll just show that this works again. So we'll do one more time going to take a shot and then if you can look sort of over to where Kelsey is. There you go. And just with your eyes back to me. Good, good, good, good. And we can see that we change the circumstances. And it worked just fine. I still get a good exposure, and we can try to do something else. Is trying to take a shot of this entire wall over here. So just pointing at the wall, just pointing at the wall. Okay, so we're gonna try to take a shot of this. See what we get. Looks like we have a pulse. Are inside the TV. All right, so that's pretty cool.
