SB 800 users, here's a neat trick.
« on: March 12, 2010, 06:15:23 PM »
   So. Who's got an SB800 or two and wishes the head rotated just a little bit more than it does? (I'm talking to you Jonathan!)
          Well here's a neat trick that allows it to do just that.

    Thanks to the good folks at Strobist.
                                      Graham. :tup:

   BTW  He appears to have accidently left his gramaphone playing while making the video.

I've seen that on a few sites. I'd get confused about how many turns I've done and probably twist the internal wires out.

       It dos'nt give total rotation, just another 20 degrees or so.

That's interesting. If I can summon up the courage, I might give it a go.
