  • Replied in Used Bodies
    You would get a better response by posting in the appropriate Nikon forum. You will also need to give some info on what type of photography you want a camera for.
  • More good advice by John here. Just to add, like camera bodies, one of the things that makes a "pro" lens so much more expensive, is the build quality. A Canon "L" series lens will cost many times ...
  • Created questions Vivitar battery grips.
    Has anyone in UK ordered one of these battery grips? The reviews are quite favourable & I am prepared to take the chance for $30 rather than the £100+ for Canons own. I want one for my 5D2 & one ...
  • If you are shooting your kids at sports, the stabilization is not needed. I would always have it myself because my hands are a bit shaky, but if you can keep your shutter speed up around the 1/500 ...
  • Congratulations Kris. I had a bad drink problem myself years ago that contributed to my marriage breaking up. I am not teetotal, but have learned to control it successfully for 10 years now. Great ...
  • Mine was, "Is that a wig?" !!!
  • I have been having a great time shooting real close-ups with my WA. So I would say NO.
  • Hi Ste. I would just like to add to the good advice you are getting here. These are my own experiences & how I handled them. First, I have only been into photography for 3 years. I have had exactly ...
  • I'm sure I have seen a book at the library titled "The Strobist" or something similar?
  • Ian. I have heard of that one. I think it's in my local library. I will see on Monday. Thanks.
  • Replied in Book....
    Cheers my friend, I will indeed look it up.
  • Ian. I don't know much [make that nowt'] about this, I just thought the 603's would be a good place to start, then maybe, if I get the hang of it, I could get the better one. That's why I ...
  • Thanks Ted. I feel I could do with studying flash photography as a separate entity. There are a number of books & tutorials on flash photography, does anyone have a good recommendation for a ...
  • Thanks Leonard, I can easilly pick up a cord later, as the Yonganuo is so inexpensive. It won't be used extensively, but I was looking at some tutorials where it came in very handy.
  • Thanks for all the replies, folks. I have ordered the Yonganuo rf603c. Only £18, worth it just to experiment with & see how it goes. I normally go for the best I can afford in these type of ...
  • Hi Ian & thanks for the great info. Yes the Di866 is compatible with the 7D. have you ever used a remote wireless set up like the Yongnuo?
  • Just looked up some reviews of the Yongnuo & they are pretty good. £23 from Amazon.
  • That's great info Penpix, thanks. I think I would rather get a wireless receiver first as last & yes, I have heard good reports of Yongonu stuff in general. I could even get both as the cord is ...
  • Created questions Firing my off camera flash.
    I recently bought a Nissin Di866 flash & want to know how I can fire it whilst holding it in my hand as opposed to using the hot shoe. I have both 7D & 5DMk2. How do "Pocket Wizards" work & would ...
  • I like the idea of taking many pics from a single spot. I will definitely try that next time out.
