I would like to cut the power down past 128 on my ex600. Now I know I can bounce the flash , but this does not work in a dark room. I can use the a defuser or bounce card but I would need more light to go forward that this options allow. I can stop down the aperture but than I lose the shallow depth of field. I can lower the iso but then I lose the ambient light that a high iso provides. And generally this would be an on camera flash, off camera flash would not be an option.
I am thinking maybe put some index cards infront of the flash till I get the light power I want?

Maybe put ND gels in the filter holder for the flash head?

Hi. Not sure what color white filtrs are, but the ND gels I am talking about would weigh no more that the ornage gel that comes with the flash unit.

Forum won't let us post commercial info, but Google "ND filter gels" and you get a bunch of hits.

You sir deserve a cheese treat wrap in a tasty prezel (kudos!!) I wonder why you see all the photographers on youtube and online with big heavy ND filters?

Light falls off immensely with distance. Pull the light back as far as possible in the room and see what that does.
