I made my own using a piece of white plastic from food packaging and velcro. No need to spend money.

Do you need to do that in RAW? Reason I ask is I have one in my bag thick white plastic and elastic bands to hold it on (velcro is for the MkII upgrade I plan). It has not been used yet.

How do you test for colour shift if you bounce from a wall or ceiling etc?


Thanks

I guess the answer is the usual one - carry a card with known white or grey on them and take a picture of it.

The colour shift straight from the diffused flash is something you can record and keep forever. Coloured walls and ceilings at each [different] location will need a picture at the time.

When shooting indoor, I normally set a custom white balance without flash first. Then I gel the flash to give the correct colour for subject within range of the flash. This way I do not get orange colour shift for subject out of range of flash.
