I'm unsure whether the Turing Test has been passed, or real people are failing ...  :p

I know how it works. I was hoping they might figure it out so we don't have a whole page of nice shot comments for years old images.

Question for HSS users....Are you always using TTL? If not using TTL (using manual), how do know how to adjust you flash power? Does it just take a lot of practice to have a feel for what power to use at specific SS's? The main reason I don't use HSS is cause of the power loss with increased SS's. I can usually guess at what power setting I'll need with shooting manual and keeping under the max sync speed but I'm all over the place trying to dial in the right power setting when shooting HSS/manual And adjusting shutter speeds on the fly. Do I need to bust out the flash meter?
Thanks

^^^^

I use manual and its all about pratice. Ones youve shot a bunch you can make better starting setting "guesses" and tweak from there. I cant get behind using ettl for shooting a model bc I think it would require more compensating for what the flash is thinking. Start off with a low iso and a the fstop you want. Then meter your ambient light and pick a Sspeed that under exposed the background. I usually just put my flash on full to start and back it down as needed. From there just make sure your light stays the same distence from the model and you are good. After I get my setting good I tweak by moving the light more then anything

Perfect! Just the answer I was looking for. I'm not new to flash by any means....Just gave up on HSS a long time ago when using just small speedlites. Mainly cause HSS seems kill so much of the power from those little lights. I recently acquired an AD200 and thought I might revisit the idea of HSS as it pack a bit more power. I like the idea of starting at 1/1 and simply backing off as needed. I suppose in a perfect world the SS would not be changing a whole lot allowing you a bit more consistency and predictability from the flash unit while you work.
Thanks!

I use manual too but with Elinchrom I have access to the full range of power of the strobe. I can place a strobe 30 feet away and get what I need. It’s Hi-Sync (HS) not HSS. Elinchrom Has TTL units too. I prefer HS. But, am looking at the new units too. If they play well together I’m in.

Just practice.

But if you start by exposing the background at shutter speeds above x-sync shutter speeds and then add the light, you can skip the math.

Also, HSS acts like ambient. Double the shutter speed and you need to double the power output or half the distance of the light to the subject.
