... The zoom function ranges between i think 24mm and 105mm. What effect does changing the zoom function have on light output? Thanks in advance guys.

Jason

As you zoom in (towards 105mm) you concentrate the light and make it stronger so conversely you make the light weaker as you zoom out (towards 24mm).The manual gives you guide numbers at each zoom and power setting, see page 43.

If you don't know how to use 'guide numbers' then look here (bottom of page):

Wutzman: it will be interesting to see a finished result with your 'scraper'. It looks like a very cool idea.
Would you still move it free standing or would you put it in the horizontal postion and pan it (if it was mounted on a tripod....).
I wonder what effect that would have?

Quick snap I took of my car one night, forgot a set up shot but it was pretty simple, 580 on a light stand w/ a reflective umbrella to the left of the camera.
