  • Created discussion thread Godox CP80 battery pack
    Hi, I bought a Godox CP80 battery pack to use with a tt685s flash. I loaded it up with batteries and the status LED shows red (fully charged).  The power button does not appear to do anything, the ...
  • They are designed to go on a spigot on top of a light stand. You can buy an adaptor that will fit onto a 1/4 or 3/8 tripod thread. I am going to get an adaptor and screw it to a cheap arca swiss ...
  • I'm not an owner but it looks to be a fair review to me. The Panasonic TZ80 is about half the price new on eBay at the moment and I think that is on a par performance wise. Slightly shorter zoom ...
  • No expert but some RAW processing software automatically corrects for stuff like barrel distortion. Often the profile for the camera / lens needs to be in the software but it is possible to embed ...
  • The flash holder is a Bowens s type bracket. Just Google and you will find loads of them. It came as a bundle with a large softbox, the flash and the trigger (Sony). The stand is just a steel tube ...
  • A few more. My son tipped up some peanuts from the feeder so we had a new guest, Raticus: I don't really mind the odd rat but I don't want loads of them running about. Have ordered a cage trap but ...
  • Didn't get too much time today and when I did the light wasn't great but I did have a go with a flash to try and add a bit of fill. I think it worked out OK: Here is the flash on a pole: Not a ...
  • I am still trying to get the flash triggering right but I think I am there. I am using a Codox tt350s and a Godox tt685s. The tt685 is set up near the tree close to the feeders. It is set to ...
  • I have one of these, bought from Amazon warehouse nice and cheap. It works OK enough but the adjustment is quite coarse perhaps for stacking? It is quick to get the object in focus in the 1st ...
  • I think with the P900 there is no way to put the flash into manual mode - can't remember? If not, the slave needs to be able to ignore the TTL pre-flash. I have used with Godox Sony units (I have ...
  • Great pictures. Just the motivational push I need to get out into the garden with the Raynox. BM
  • That's the make I have for my P900 and they work fine for me as well. Cheap as chips, there is no reason not to carry spare batteries. BM
  • And a few more. There are a few birds around here I just can't seem to catch. I have just bought a flash (for my RX10) that I believe will fire as an optical slave from the P900. I am going to ...
  • I have a couple of spare batteries for my P900 and Sony RX10. Both sets are 3rd party. The ones for the P900 work fine. Not sure the RavPower RX10 ones are quite as good but they are OK. Not sure ...
  • I have no idea. I guess I would not share too many. Bird moved (P900 has quite a shutter/focus lag), out of focus, poor composition blah, blah, blah. Digital is free, snap away and ditch the junk. ...
  • That's a cool bird. Nothing like that around here :( Good photos. BM
  • I have a P900 and only just got it. I do try and avoid ISO 400 and below if I can with the P900. Below 800 and I probably wont bother trying unless I really 'must' have the picture. I suspect the ...
  • Missed one....
  • Thanks, I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy the camera but I did want something with a long zoom. I am enjoying playing with it. The results are OK, not super sharp, and the light has to be good, ...
  • A few more from my garden: These were all taken from my bedroom window :) Hardly had to get out of bed... BM
