Hi All,

Just got a new flash a Metz 36 and I have a question when using the flash do you use the lens hood or do you take it off? :confused:

Cheers

Typically you don't need to remove lens hoods when using an external flash as the point of light is high enough to get over them

However this can still be an issue with a long lens with big lens hoods

I suggest trying a few test shots on a plain surface and seeing whether you see a shadow with your set-up

Regards
