  3. Re: Getting the correct lens settings for a synced strobe?

    Exposure will be a combination of aperture and flash (shutter speed is not a factor). And the aperture will depend on the subject distance. As I said, shutter speed will not be a big...

    Re: Locking down focus?

    One knob moves the camera body on the rails -- and the knob on the opposite side locks it into place. Sometimes one needs to hold the adjusting knob to keep it from turning when you tighten the...

    I use it at 2:2:100 also. But I use it to shorten my otherwise long development times (reduces oxidation in rotary processing.)

    I believe increasing the Part B only will increase staining, but...
