I have a 14-30 Nikkor S. Lens on the Z6 if I Zoom in to 26mm or 30mm is that the perfect coverage of the flash?
Asked by: Anonymous
I don't really know since I haven't used it with my Z6 or the 24-70 S lens. However, if you 'bounce' flash, either off the ceiling or behind you, the flash coverage is pretty broad and I would imagine cover everything within those two settings.
