Thankfully the pop-up feature is currently off, but for how long?

  • For macro usage the 55mm Micro Nikkor F/3.5 or newer F/2.8 is a better choice over a standard 50mm lens. Typical of macro lenses of that era my pre-AI F/3.5 model focuses to half-life size with ...
  • Replied in Manual flash
    When flash is the predominate light source in a dark venue your typical exposure settings will result in a dark display unless you turn off the live view "setting effects" in the menu.  This will ...
  • Even when set to "--" the pop up's commander preflash can register in the image because the last part of the commander preflash is the signal to fire and that happens when the shutter is open. You ...
  • Your camera can't record this data during shooting but you can add it after the fact with an exif editor . The problem with this approach for those of us without a photographic memory is a need to ...
  • The YN-560 mkIII built in RF receiver can be set to RF-602 mode if so desired.  It will retain this setting while powered off and also with batteries removed. Default is RF-603 receiver mode.  The ...
  • Make sure the YN-560 III is set for hot shoe (camera top) operation.  My YN-560 III shows on the top line of the display at the far left a flash icon and the letter "M".  The remainder of the top ...
  • Soon to be available is the YongNuo 560TX transmitter which will allow you to control power level and zoom head position of the YN-560 III flash from the camera position. Another trigger that you ...
  • No update needed on the YN-560 III. Correct.  The built in RF receiver of the YN-560 III can receive signal to wake up and fire from RF-603, RF-603II, and also the older RF-602 triggers.  Default ...
  • The YongNuo 560 series manual flash models are not directly compatible with Nikon's IR light based wireless system.  You can not control them via the commander menu.  For that you need the more ...
  • Most any flash or flash accessory with a standard ISO hot shoe foot can be used in the Sony MIS. It doesn't have to be Canon or Nikon compatible. Manual flash means you must control the exposure by ...
  • The SEL50F18 is incompatible with both your GX1 and 400d for an additional reason. The lens (all Sony E mount lenses actually) needs to be positioned 18mm from the sensor ( flange focal distance ) ...
  • Observe the adapter operation by looking into the rear opening with the lens mounted on the adapter. Based on your adapter images mounting the lens to adapter with the adapter set to "OFF" should ...
  • To use this adapter to fit the lens on your NEX you must first remove the Nikon Adaptall mount from the rear of the lens. With this adapter you leave the Nikon Adaptall mount on the lens. A Nikon ...
  • The Canon and Nikon specific YN560-TX models are for flash wake up according to flashhavoc.com. With the A6000 MIS shoe only the center contact is available to the YN560-TX so either version ...
  • Here are some of these latest advancements in inexpensive 3rd party flash gear that you can take advantage of since you are comfortable with manual flash exposure for your "studio style" shooting: ...
  • Replied in Camera motion
    Looking for signs of camera movement there is obvious vertical movement in the 3rd image. Note the "Fire Lane" words on the curb near image center has a ghost image slightly above it. The 1st image ...
  • Rubber band a small laser pointer to your lens and watch the spot dance on a relatively distant surface for a visual indication of tripod stability.  You can use this technique to evaluate what ...
  • It is flash units compatible with Sony's TTL flash exposure protocol that need to connect to the camera's proprietary flash connections under the front lip of the MIS (multi interface shoe). Third ...
  • Most light for the buck is a manual flash, something like the YongNuo 560 series. If you want TTL auto exposure and HSS (High Speed Sync) that is a lot more expensive. Flash doesn't carry well at ...
  • The Sony NP-FW50 battery is lithium based not NiMh. Lithium batteries don't normally exhibit self-discharge behavior at anything near the typical NiMh level. Your method to determine whether the ...
