But I digress: Don’t try this at home

Photographer Peter Gregg has an insane little video of a modification to a Nikon SB-800 strobe. The flash head on a normal SB-800 will turn 90 degrees to the right and 180 degrees to the left, but it won’t do that Linda-Blair-360-degree-spin all the way around. Gregg gives a tutorial showing how to break modify the flash in a chicken-neck-wringing fashion.

About half of the video is spent telling you NOT to do it, how you can void the manufacturer’s warranty or maybe even ruin the flash permanently. It gives me the willies just watching it. If you’re insane courageous enough to try, you can’t say he didn’t warn you.
