DIY autofocus assist + added DIY hotshoe
During the Brussels strobist meet we encountered some low-light situations (gearing towards no-light). The camera’s didn’t really like that and I got thinking about getting an ST-2. But as usual this requires money and why spent money when you’ve got about 6 focus assits in the house? Every flash I have has a focus assist. But what if you don’t want the flash to fire? That’s one thing none of my flashes can actually. So I could’ve taped over the head of the flash but I decided to try and mod my 430EZ. The 430 is not suited for strobist stuff since it has a un-disablable (is that even a word?) sleep function.
