On article Adorama launches Flashpoint Ring Li-On 400ws ringflash (57 comments in total)

400 WS is not strong enough to over power the summer sun. The angle of coverage is good for a 50mm lens. It is no Profoto Acute/D4 Ring.

It's about time. Too late for me though. I have moved away from Manfrotto heads to Arca Swiss compatibles years ago. So, who's next to think Arca Swiss? Gitzo?

ShutterbugDougG: Disappointed that there's no GPS and no articulating screen. (:-( I'll pay more money for these desirable features.

Canon should take note of these omissions.

AbrasiveReducer: This grip looks fine but just out of curiosity, why would anyone pay $3000 for a 5D3 and then walk around with a camera strap that says "Canon 5D3"? Is this (a) free advertising for Canon, (b) so that other people can tell what camera you have, even in a crowd or (c) to remind you what camera is on your shoulder.

Just thread a Nikon strap onto the Canon. Who would know?

Hang on to your f/2.8 version. You will most likely miss the bokeh of the f/2.8.

Francis Carver: Seems like Canon is unveiling their new cameras at least once about every 4 months. This now is at least the 2nd time this year they had "launched" the EOS C500 $30,000-cam.

This is a 4K camera body, but not a 4K camcorder, because it cannot record in 4K, only output in 4K. You would also need a matching 4K recorder connected to it, therefore, before you can record 4K video. Unfortunately, those are in short supply, to say the least.

The barely 3x zoom range lenses are not much to write home about, either. Altogether, a very pricey package for capturing pseudo-4K videos. Canon just cannot seem to get the video part right with their latest products.

You are a troll.

Usain boosting Nikon sales. There doesn't appear to be a Canon DSLR in sight.

Can I hang the camera and EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM from the EOS-M's camera strap over my shoulder?

No need to upgrade to a Canon EOS 5D Mark III when the EOS-M will do the job.

This would be the inexpensive wedding camera. People will buy 3-4 of these and have a lens on each one and shoot with flash.

That's one hell of an expensive Louis Vuitton bag she's toting around. More expensive than the Nikon used to shoot the photo.

jmaxx30: I'm somewhat confused. What is the primary difference between the F4 and the F2.8 (besides the obvious aperture)? Is the big reason for making and F4 to reduce the size and price?

At the time of introduction, the primary reason was for a lighter lens at $550 less than the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM. Also, the other advantage was the 4 stop Image Stablizer. The drawback was the reduction in bokeh at f/4.
