I was recently given a pair of older studio lights complete with softboxes and a basic hot-shoe trigger. I have zero experience with studio lights I admit. I intend to use it with my Canon EOS 550D. The setup works, strobe fires but... can I somehow use auto exposure?
I would be quite happy with a semi-manual approach - take a shot, "somehow" use it as input data and let the camera set the shutter speed, aperture, etc to make it better. Similar to how custom white balance is done on this camera.
Or even better of course have it all automatic (similar to what "TTL" does for external hot-shoe flashes if I'm not mistaken).
Is there any way?
