If you have any old SLRs lying around, look through them. They tend to have this thing attached, which I find works perfectly for reversing a flash.

Awesome, thanks! Let me know when you get it, I'll definitely do that, as long as the lens/shutter isn't totally destroyed.

EDIT: Dammit, double post. For some reason, my last post had basically disappeared, so I couldn't edit it. Now it's back. confused.gif

Also, if your speedlight has a swivel head, turn it backwards and bounce off a slightly folded styrofoam plate. If not, use a PC sync cord and a cold shoe mount to get it facing backwards. It should diffuse the lighting much better, especially if you use that in addition to the diffuser cap.
Wow, that's a lot of random junk. Why not buy something useful? That kodak vigilant will at least be fun to play with, assuming you can get the light leaks under control (and it will have many). If nothing, you can remove the lens and it'll cover 4x5. I have one lying around, but the shutter's frozen.

I understand for a wider depth of field and sharper. But F/22 is beyond overkill and for that lens would probably start going bad again -- Sweet spot for most lenses is anywhere from F/4.0 to F/12. Even F/9.0 is slightly overkill for something that close / that small. Hell, F/4.0 would do the trick more than fine.

I'll probably want it, as long as the lens and shutter aren't both totally trashed. Judging by the picture, it looks like it was reasonably well taken care of, so I doubt that'll be the case.

The band is really out of focus in those pictures, especially the second one. It messes them up for me. Shane's original point was that it was too sharp, so stopping down more would help that as well.

I just use my 50D in the rain. The "partial weather sealing" seems to hold up just fine.
