  • Glow para from Adorama these are "true" paras, ranging in size from 27" to 70" they are as inexpensive as it gets without being cheap (trust me, I bought some Chinese knock offs on amazon and eBay....)
  • The P B Silver PLM Umbrella is not a Para, or at least not what is generally considered a para.....I have a smaller one of PB silver PLM, its great, very much like the soft lighter or any other ...
  • YES! and the old 600 has/had the bi tube head....a 1200 ws head for 2 600 monos.... there is a rumor godox/flashpoint will make a bi tube head for the 1200 packs....2400ws battery powered.....cant ...
  • soft lighter is one of my favorite modifier, but very different from a para which is hard focused light.....the beauty of the soft lighter IMO is the soft almost window light like quality....
  • I am assuming that guy used to work with studio packs? so probably 1000 or 2000ws....I don't think you need that much but f11 out of a 7ft para at working distance which with a 7ft para would be ...
  • paras are great, Adorama sells great lower price ones with their Glow brand.... a 7 ft para is.....huge.....I would go with a 5ft at first....still somewhat manageable outside.... 400ws can be ok ...
  • T/S is still tricky because of color shift....I am pretty sure they could make the lenses, not sure they can make the lenses and software for the ",mainstream" client Fuji are reaching with the ...
  • sorry, yes you are right, I must have been wrong about the 90%....I remember checking it and th charge being at 90%.....was wondering at that point when and if it knows how and when to charge to ...
  • you are obviously correct I am more concerned that with the way imaging and the market is going, we will see less and less development going into larger high end sensors.... I am not sure about ...
  • afaik Apple now has implemented smart charging, (similar to Tesla) my battery rarely charges to 90% because it is attached to my screen most of the time.....it has learned how much to charge to ...
  • depends on what you are looking for..... I have repeatedly said that I at this point I do not want to deal with 100mpix files. I hav no issues with aliasing, and I shoot too much, the file sizes ...
  • I am assuming you rented a H system? I haven't shot with one in ages, never liked them and yes, they feel like something out of a different time....as do the Phase cameras....both systems with ...
  • I guess that is hard to say, I usually take any reading several times to make sure there are no flukes, I have only had it for a few days and have tested it outside in sun but since I have leaf ...
  • the A1 will do some real damage to competition for motion, all the way up to highest end production.....8k at 30fps and afaik it can be rigged any way you like.... and Sony included some cine tech ...
  • I am one of the few Hasselblad guys here, I chose the GFX over X1DII first, but the advantages of my Sonys made up for the slightly better IQ....the difference wasn't drastic enough to justify the ...
  • IMO the 33x44 Sony sensor in both the GFX 50 and X1D cameras seems to be a very nice combination of everything we are looking for, plenty of pixels, plenty big enough, great DR and capable of ...
  • saw that as well, what I think is even more interesting is eshutter flash sync of 1/200 the read out time of this sensor is obviously pretty crazy! squeezing an extra 2/3 of a stopp out of the ...
  • Created discussion thread leaf shutter vs HSS
    this came up again in a few threads in the medium format forum, I will post links to this there as well.... so received my sekonic meter and got some readings flashpoint 1200 ws pack, standard ...
  • so received my sekonic meter and got some readings flashpoint 1200 ws pack, standard reflector, distance about 7ft... at 1/4 power 100iso, 1/1000 f 11, HSS f 2.8 1/2 that difference is pretty ...
