I have just bought myself a pretty cheap Vivitar283 flash which is very good, However with the settings it also takes me 9-12 metres away from my subject, shooting at 5.6-8 at a rating of 320 on portra 400.


GN is 20 metres. 10 metres away means F/2 at 100. Or F/4 at 400 but you're at 320.

That's straight on. No bounce. No diffuser or filter over the flash.

Unless I got the math wrong . But even if I did the 283 is not a hugely powerful flash that you'd expect F/8. Maybe if you had a Metz 45

I have seen the Metz 45. I will have a look at it. The only thing with this flash is it doesn’t tell you how far away to be to get the right exposure.
