Hello, In the 270EX II Manual under "Setting the Flash Functions by Camera Operation" (p.14): [Flash Firing] (Enable/Disable) Set to [Disable] when you wish to use only the AF-assist beam I don't understand what this settings means. The flash fires even when i set it to "disable" Is there a way to disable the "stroboscope" effect of this flash? KR gewe BTW my sunpak RD2000 locks up with 5d IV

Thanks very much.

Hi. I have some questions because I would like to understand better how to evaluete exposure better. I know Sunny 16 rule but I could see that when I shoot on a daylight in a sunny day (I'm living in Sicily so I know that the rule can become SUNNY 22) under the shadow of a tree, using flash to fill-in something it doesn't add up. I have a Pentax K-r. I set the camera ISO 800 - F/5,6 OR F/7.1 - Shutter speed 1/125 or 1/180. Using Sunny 16 rule I should set the shutter speed as the reciprocal...

I really enjoy this setup, and have taken some nice shots for friends that earned me several bottles of wine. But I have really found trouble shooting moving people indoors. It's very hard to use tracking mode and pre-focus for me, as everything happens fast and movement is not always predictable. When using F2.0, the shallow depth of field makes it easy to take a shot of blurred face. Using smaller apertures, the higher ISO will make IQ go down (I can only accept IQ at 1600). Any...

Hello, I want some advice with what camera should I choose. My options  are Nikon D5100+18-55mm or Pentax K-r+18-55mm+50mm f1.7. It is worth giving my 500D for one of these?

I want to copy a large number of old 6x4 and 5x7 prints, obviously not to studio quality because lots are faded and poor colour anyway.  Its to have a digital record of the last 50 years of trips and people.  I have already done 3500 Kodachrome and Fujichrome slides. Scanning is too slow.  The method I am using with some success is my Pentax Kr with a nice old 50mm M lens pointing vertically down, a piece of hardboard wrong side up marked with a grid and with low tack adhesive (spraymount...

For a little while now I have been saving to buy my first DSLR. I am no where near the amount needed. However, as I have been going through somewhat of a rough patch lately, my girlfriend felt sorry for me and offered to help me out, to chear me up. My brother in laws wife own a Nikon D3200 and I have been pretty impressed with the pictures she have taken. So I decided to go for a Nikon D3300 (Fairly good review on this page). Also because I can buy it locally (Holstebro, Denmark), which is...
