Re: Softbox VS Umbrella

Wow, great information there mate. Alot of technical data to help me at least have idea, and learn.

Here in New Zealand, there are a few makes of the reasonably to cheaper priced umbrellas.

I think ill be going for the umbrella as a starting point. Doing research online at my options and possible lighting sources and combinations i realised that having/using RF wireless is almost a must!

Damn this photography thing isnt cheap....lol

Any experience or ideas on a decent brand for wireless flash triggering? Ive heard PocketWizard i good but its rather expensive here in NZ, tehn again, some of the other brands arent what i would call cheap either.

Thanks again for the help guys
