I think like a lot of APUGers, I've got a growing selection of cameras... and I've recently started to use a fair bit of flash. I am intrigued by how people approach flash with different camera systems.
I use Hasselblad 500cms, Contax G and then some old RF's and SLRs of various vintages. I've been using a Metz 45 CT-3 with a bunch of homemade diffusers. For metering I use a Sekonic Studio Deluxe III so no flash metering at all. I've been exclusively guesstimating exposure using the scale on the Metz and understanding (somewhat) the difference any modifiers make.
On the whole, things tend to go OK but ideally I'd like a flash with a little more control and flexibility. I guess I will have to buy a flash meter (thinking a 308s) and a cheapish standard hot shoe flash with variable manual output and a PC connection (I really only shoot with flash off camera). Obviously TTL isn't worth it and frankly I don't want to use TTL for some cameras (like the G2 that support it) and manual for others - better manual all the way I'd think. Down the track I'd also like the option to use multiple flash and wireless. Can't really afford a Quantum so are there any other recommendations?
Sorry for the long-winded question, but I am sure you know where I am coming from... I'm guessing lots of people have arrived at a similar problem at some point. Thanks.
