I have ordered some wireless triggers which should be here by the weekend. I wanted to do some testing and a review as these seem to be few and far between.
The tests I wish to conduct are distance (line of sight and with obstructions), FPS and sync speed. I know testing methods for distance and FPS, but testing sync. speed has be a bit lost.
I want to do this fairly comprehensively, so I was thinking I would set up a test subject in my makeshift studio with the strobe on a stand pointing at the subject with no modifiers. I would then set the to 1/125, to 400, flash power to 1/32 and adjust the to suit the scene.
For the experiment I would increase the 1/3- until I reach the maximum sync. speed for 1/32 flash power. I would then reset the to 1/125, increase the flash power to 1/16 and adjust the to suit the scene. I will repeat the increases until I reach the maximum sync. speed again.
I will repeat these steps for 1/32, 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 & 1/1 flash power each with the steps in 1/3- until the maximum sync. speed is determined for each power level. The adjustment of the will ensure the scene is exposed correctly making it easier to determine any dark areas caused by the .
Does this methodology seem right? It doesn in my head, but I could be wrong.
