Gato Amarillo's recent activity

  • I keep the EVF set to flash a quick review with the histogram in the finder. I have learned to pick up on blown highlights with only a very quick glance. When shooting quickly that's enough to ...
  • I, too, was thinking it could be the trigger. Does the flash work when you fire it directly, or when mounted on the camera? If it works on the camera or from the test on the flash that would point ...
  • Tax is a matter of state law, but probably not. This could depend on whether you are seen as an employee or an independent contractor. A CPA in your state should know this stuff. Anyone who shoots ...
  • You might be able to trigger the 200 with your YN, but only to flash -- no remote power control or TTL. For full function you will need a Godox trigger. If you get a Godox transmitter and receiver ...
  • Current price of the Li-ion version is $179. The AA version is $110. And I don't think Adorama has ever offered repairs on Godox -- I checked that before I bought mine. Does the OP mean they ...
  • I think Cheetah Stand repairs Godox. Check with them or try Google or the Godox online user forums. Be aware that in some cases a flash repair runs more than the replacement cost -- $150 would not ...
  • Much like BAK's question, what can you not do now that another light will make possible? Based on what you said, first thoughts: Option 1: Nikon speedlights are expensive and you already have one. ...
  • I'm talking actual, so I think we agree. I think a 20 or 24 would be good on APS-C as a general indoor lens -- roughly comparable 35 on FF. To expand on what I said before, consider a kid's ...
  • There are times when a simple on-camera flash can be a life saver -- or at least a photo saver. Set it up for fill flash to brighten eyes without too much obvious flash look. For off-camera light ...
  • It's only stepping up one sensor size, about like the step from APS to FF. If you look at the diagram above you will see the sensor area roughly doubles at each step up. If you do the math there ...
  • A lighter wallet and smaller bank account? More seriously, what kind of gains are you looking for? The difference in image quality will be small, maybe invisible unless you are making or selling ...
  • Do you have a decent TTL flash? Preferably something you can use off-camera as well as in the hotshoe? If not, something like the Godox 685 (aka Adorama Flashpoint Zoom TTL) plus a remote trigger, ...
  • Replied in Color splash
    If you are using the pop-up to trigger an off-camera flash there is usually a sight delay before the shutter fires because the pop-up has to send trigger info to the other flash. This can be ...
  • Worked the same for me, I clicked to full screen. Wolf pic looked great. Video and sound look good for test material. Gato
  • Replied in Color splash
    First thing I would go is get some balloons and water and do some testing to work out inflation and size of splash. And best way to pop the balloon. When you think you have it close you can add paint.
  • I'm curious why you want to use continuous light, especially for babies and pets, but also portraits. Are you also doing video? For still photography a light bright enough to give decent shutter ...
  • Yep, although my main system is mirrorless. The "real" camera only comes out for things I expect maybe to print someday -- which is a pretty small percentage of what I do. Or when I need a long lens. ...
  • My basic method uses both flash and camera in manual mode. - With flash turned off find the exposure for the background. If you meter confirm the exposure with a test shot. If possible keep the ...
  • Like the looks of it, but wonder why after talking about it for so long they now have a kickstarter.
  • First off, as suggested in an earlier post, visit the strobist website. Start with Lighting 101 and work up. Good start. You can do a lot with that. You're about at the limits of a single ...
