For a point of referance Canon 550EX, 580EX, 580EXII, & 600EXRT all output around 25 WATT SECONDS at full power.

The main difference is the lens that focuses the light thus the differences in guide numbers.

No flash will output all the power stored in the capacitor since the arc stops when the voltage gets too liw

Get a EOS 1V, set to TTL, and shoot film.

Or get a 600ex flash and shoot in auto mode ie sensor on the flash for AE.

? Is there a good reason to NOT recommend the 7DmkII?

Just curious.

Thanks, Will T.

Based on my experience with the 70D, the 7D II should have great AF, but suffer from all the dSLR issues (bad sound, aliasing, no focus peaking or punch-in for focus, no good pre-amps, no waveform monitor, poor codec, not great color science, aliasing, etc.) as well as being APS-C with frame-skipping resulting in relatively poor sensitivity at extreme ISOs.

Should be fine if you can figure out how to get good sound and your client doesn't care about a bit of aliasing and softness. But the C100 (or FS7 if you have the money) should be soo much better.

Have you actually used a 7DII?

Lenses / Re: I *HATE* UPS.

You should read the UPS minium packaging requirements.  All packages must be packaged as to survive a 6 foot drop by the shipper.

3 feet is nothing if properly packaged.

Remember the conveyer belt is 6 feet off of the sorting center floor and when they have a backup some packages do fall to the floor thus the spec.

It is the shippers responsibility to package properly.

I have had fedex home change status to note left without ever leaving there depot.

Best to know your driver and there cell #,  that way you do not have to wait just meet them and go home early.

WTF !

NO REAL USER MANUAL!

Paper manual = recycle material.
PDF manual = useful, searchable, and takes no space.

Impossible to read with just your eyes, thus not a user manual!  Only a computer file.

The 1Ds III successor is the 5D MKIII.

That said my wish list is:

A 1DX style body with a 1.6 crop sensor

and

A 1DX style body with a high MP sensor

Yup, -2ev. There is no point for -3, since 7D II is an outdoor camera.

Not so, good AF is always relevant.

Even flash photography sucks if you can not get the camera to focus!

Will, we're you spaced when you read the original post, it is made quite clear that a new battery didn't fix the problem so a repair was needed.
Is it you who should read and comprehend before spouting off? :o

Cheers, Graham.

Graham, please quote exactly where this is clearly stated???
