Flash for hummingbirds
Hello, hope someone can help.
I'm currently using a 40D, 100-400L with a 580exII flash for humming birds.
I have read that you need more than one flash to freeze hummingbird wings.
I have been using the 580exII set to manual at 1/16 power mounted on the camera from about 10 feet away with a better beamer. I'm a bit too far I think. The images come out slightly under-exposed with some motion blur. Not alot but a bit.
I would like to get another flash that I will set up on a tripod a few feet away from my feeder and leave the 580ex/better beamer on the camera.
I would like to go with, if possible, an after market flash such as a Sun-pak or Vivatar.
Could someone recommend a decent flash with any needed slaves in order to make it work with my 580ex?
