  • +1 If you have the money, and want to buy another camera . . . if that is the goal, then only buying another camera would resolve that. :) But if taking pictures is the goal, you probably have all ...
  • Replied in Pre flash
    +1 That was me when I first got into digital SLR cameras. I had an old Vivitar flash unit that did the old Pentax TTL system (for film). But when Pentax went from the ist cameras to the K cameras, ...
  • Replied in Pre flash
    As for being at sync-speed, I guess it depends. If I have my Nikon SB-800 flash unit on my Nikon D750 (which is capable of high-speed sync) with Nikon flash units, I can set the Nikon flash unit to ...
  • If the camera is a stand alone device, then it has a longer shelf life. The more it is integrated with the cellphone and / or Internet, the faster it will become out of date. As an example, if ...
  • Replied in Pre flash
    Adam, I've not read why TTL flash would be better than auto-thyristor mode, but thinking about how everything works, I can guess and present perhaps a scenario that would totally trick ...
  • Replied in Pre flash
    +1 Yes. Probably the pre-flashes are causing the blinking. :) Another option to switching the flash unit to manual could also be switching a flash unit to the old auto mode (Auto Thyristor Mode). ...
  • I guess it depends on how much they move, and in which way they move. If it's side to side, then it shouldn't be a problem. If they only move a couple of feet back and forth, then you should be ...
  • If the light is too low (-2EV?) then the AF sensor will have trouble "seeing' what it is it is supposed to focus on. Higher end bodies can focus in lower light. But you can also help out the sensor ...
  • Replied in 2 Tests . . .
    Hey there. Sorry to hear about the flash on your D5100. I can think of 3 possible scenarios. 1) Camera Setting - If in Auto mode, and its up to the camera to decide if to use flash or not, it may ...
  • +1 I tend to agree. https://www.flickr.com/photos/tacticdesigns/9228264181/in/album-72157631300869284/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/tacticdesigns/7929712598/in/album-72157631300869284/ https://www ...
  • Yes. Good point. I've got the SB-600 and the SB-800. I also have a Pentax AF-540FGz. And I helped my buddy pick out and set-up his Canon 430EX. Out of all those flash units, I think only the SB-600 ...
  • If shooting portraits, the other thing you have to take into consideration is your subject(s) moving. Especially if they are little kids. (They move really fast and unpredictably.) You can be ...
  • What do you mean by strobe trigger with SB-600? If you mean optical trigger on the SB-600, then I don't think the SB-600 has an optical trigger built-in. If I remember correctly, the SB-800 does, ...
  • Hey Yardcoyote, post your thoughts after researching! I'd be interested to hear your perspective. As for 1" waterproof cameras. Hopefully this one will start other companies thinking about it! :) T ...
  • +1 I use it on my D7000 and D750 with full wireless TTL control! :) You can kinda add this capability to a Nikon D3x00 or D5x00 by getting a pair of Yongnuo YN-622NII triggers. (N for Nikon. C for ...
  • +1 I clicked on the link. Now . . . do you see those "moisture munchers?" Now, why doesn't anyone make some of those to put inside the current set of waterproof compact cameras? Would putting ...
  • +1 +1 With cheer and gymnastics, the athletes' hands and feet move pretty quickly. Lots of motion blur in the hands and feet at 1/250 sec. Less so with 1/500 sec. But it's still there a bit. Take ...
  • +1 LOL. Although the bulky case is actually a case that goes over the camera. The actual camera looks pretty small. The case adds extra protection and lets it go deeper. The camera itself can go ...
  • I remember reading the Nikon D750 review on this site. If I remember correctly, the example shot they gave was shooting in an airplane museum. There was windows severely backlighting the planes. So ...
  • +1 I might be happy with even a 1" inch sensor camera like that. The closest I've seen is the Sealife DC2000. https://www.ephotozine.com/article/world-s-first-waterproof-camera-with-1inch-cmos-sens ...
