  • Omfg. I thought when I saw the first pic that it was there but your subsequent denial of the Missouri made me decide not. I lived with that view for3 years, ending in 1968 when my father retired. S ...
  • If you count twice the power as slightly more - the 600EX and EX-RT have a full stop more light output than the 430EX series. You need two 430EX speedlites if you want the same output as one ...
  • Interestingly, I spent a couple nights in one of these apartments when we were visiting our niece, who married a Danish naval officer. They have been modernized and are quite livable. Each of ...
  • A flash may not be the best solution for shooting in bright sun on the beach. A 5-in-1 reflector set might do a much better job of filling in shadows. This will probably not be bright enough, and ...
  • I don't know what you were using, then - it was obviously not what I have. A good C-stand with arm, grip head, and pin, plus the robust and adjustable reflector holder does the job for me, ...
  • Replied in Stripbox
    Well this is over your budget but top notch gear: http://www.enjoyyourcamera.com/Studiozubehoer/Softboxen-fuer-Studioblitze/Westcott-Apollo-Strip-72-x-40-cm-Striplight-Softbox-zum-Einspannen-in-Sch ...
  • C-stand with boom arm and a Lastolite holder? LA1100 I think.
  • You guys are too quick. I was composing a Lübeck reply when I refreshed and saw the follow ups. I was going to make a snarky comment about SPQR and SPQL but I won't now.
  • Yes that is correct. Taken last week. Over to you!
  • So here's another hint. (What? What was the first one? "My neck of the woods" of course.) (This is hard without giving it away.) Although it appears to be one, it was never intended to be a place ...
  • OK, I am going to try another one. This is from my neck of the woods, so to speak. Where and what is it?
  • Syl Arena: http://pixsylated.com/blog/what-i-feed-my-speedlites/ Also see his book, the Speedliter's Handbook. He covers research he did on this topic. The short answer is use an external battery ...
  • How did you get scammed? I read that they were refunding the remaining kickstarter funds, at the level of 20% of the amount invested. Do you mean, the product that they were developing, the Ada? ...
  • Oh yes, I have been doing those things, including exercises using metric scales, calipers, and rulers to find out what settings give what magnifications, taking boring pics of small items from the ...
  • Fail is what I've been doing a lot of recently. :-/ The most aggravating thing I have encountered is dealing with lighting, specifically flash. I set up a rig that I thought would work well only to ...
  • The Tamron Europe site also has information about this issue: http://www.tamron.eu/service/service-news/ My 16-300 is going to need a firmware update, I think.
  • Replied in free turn
    Just to satisfy my curiosity, Hans - did you really take those photos yesterday, that is, am Mittwoch 6.4.2016? (Ich kann deutsch ein bischen.)
  • This won't work. The ST-E3-RT is radio only and will only work with the 430EX III-RT or the 600EX-RT. You could get the ST-E2 instead, which will work with the optical wireless flashes, but it may ...
  • Yeah I think so.
  • It was that easy? Really? So, over to you now.
