RPJG: Dumb question I guess, but what's the difference between a speedlight and a studio light, in terms of how they're controlled?

The Plus 4 does not transmits TTL and can only trigger or not trigger remote speedlights/flashes.

TTL is only wired trough from the camera to a flash sitting on top of Plus 4 that is again fitted to that camera itself.

On article Battle of the Wi-Fi Cards: Eye-Fi vs. Transcend (183 comments in total)

Am I correct that the author totally missed that the Transcend can also receive files through WiFi and save it on the card.

(cr2)|(srw)|(rwl)|(rw2)|(raw)|(pef)|(nrw)|(nef)|(kdc)|(k25)|(dcr)|(rf)|(sr2)|(arw)|(orf)).

Got both cards and I am using the EyeFi in combination with Shuttersnitch. This is because I don't want to wait 50 seconds before my iPad connects to the card but in less than 5 seconds. The penalty is that I have to stay on IOS 4.31 (JB) but then I use the iPad only for this so no need for newer stuff from Apple.

Same construction(innovation)

I don't mind the old design of a tripod because when I put flat in the trunk of my car for transportation I think it will not roll as easy in corners as the YTL design because the legs are more apart.

So advantage becomes a disadvantage when transporting the tripod.

Marcel Mutter: Still slower than previous versions from Photoshop. Sometimes I switch back CS 5 to be able to work realtime and no to wait a few seconds for the sceen-upadate.

It only not seems faster it is actually faster. ;-)

Now more seriously. If I change exposure in RAW I have to wait almost two seconds before RAW shows the changed settings. When the picture is imported in Photoshop I can change the exposure real-time and so have a better result. So I put the slide on best guess in RAW and fine adjust in Photoshop.

So Adobe has not have put their best effort in making RAW workable for a lot of people who have not top notch computers available........

RStyga: And, of course, we'll be forced to use the latest Adobe product... How nice of them... 'Sick of their "policy"... Although I own Elements 8, I have to purchase, again, Elements 10 to use ACR 6.7 for my K-01...

ARC is a separate program that transfers the image to the editing software so it can be made available to older programms.

It is more like in the past when petrol went from leaded to unleaded fue,l but then in one day. Yes you can fill up your car but the motor won't like it and it will cease to operate. No you can't change your motor to run on unleaded fuel and you have to scrap your car and buy a new one!!

That is the policy of Adobe....sell more cars!!!

In reply to:

EssexAsh: Does this work with a D800? the previous model was absolutely useless. They claimed the door of the camera blocked the signal of all things! I could sit the camera on top of my ipad, in direct mode, and a connection would never be made. Rubbish.

The first hit in Google when I type in D800 Eye-fi:

The Nikon D800 / D800E is not compatible with Eye-Fi X2 Cards.
Eye-Fi engineering has found and confirmed a compatibility issue with the Eye-Fi card that impacts the use of Direct Mode in the Nikon D800. We are currently investigating an issue with the D800's SD slot that appears to contribute to a lack of steady signal while the Eye-Fi card is in Direct Mode which makes the Direct Mode feature incompatible with the camera. The Nikon D800/D800e passes all other wireless network tests and is compatible with wireless transfers via a wireless router.

Ad-Hoc on iPad is posible after Jailbreak and installing MyWi or hop over to Android which supports Ad-Hoc from ISC. ;-)

Very confusing that news of two different manufactures is written in one news item.

In reply to:

BabylonPhotos: Dpreview data is wrong. The price for upgrading is €128.62, not US$ 79. I just received a mail from Adobe, but I don't think I will upgrade at that price, it's too high.

In the Adobe shop the price of LR4 upgrade in Euro is 73,78 and free shipping.

The non-upgrade version (full) is Euro 129,71.

Prices mentioned inlcude VAT.

Dannyboy292: People that use phones as cameras are funny, the photos are almost always pixelated, blurry,noisy ,unprocessable, uncropable ect...do your self a favor and at least use a good little point and shoot, at least you can crop and mabey even print a photo to hang up on you wall.

I was in Madrid (Spain) without my SLR but with my Galaxy S2 and made great pictures that challenges my SLR. You need a lot of light and I mean a lot of. Under low light the very small sensor is too noisy.

I am very pleased with the result and did not miss my SLR one second.

Marcel Mutter: Canon is going backwards on THE following point.

On the 1D mark IV you can separate the pictures and the movies to separate memory cards.

You can read it on page 147 of the manual (English) item 3 last line.

Yes Canon hide it well. ;-)

You only need the the Eye-Fi service to setup the card and after that you don't have use the programs of Eye-Fi any more until you network setup infrastructure changes.

For the iPad, Android there are enough good if not better programs available for the PC the Eye-Fi Helper is still the best. I don't own a MAC so can't judge about that.

Mr Fartleberry: Now if Nikon could only figure how to put GPS in a pro camera body.

Look at Canon, they don't even support GPS directly on the camera. You will have to buy two extra boxes to have GPS.

With a Nikon you only have to buy a GPS receiver that connects directly to the camera.
