Canon General / Re: New Speedlite Coming? [CR2]

A fat Li-on battery like the Ving 850 would make sense.

Hey all,

    That is one thing I like about the Godox flashes. (V850/V860)  For the price, the battery life, and full amount of features (except the old style lock wheel :-(  ), I think this should be the next build model for flashes. Options? Manual vs TTL and built in radio or not. I think Canon could sell a decent amount of manual only flashes with HSS and rear curtain sync.

Hey all,

Hey all,

    Spend about an extra $200-300 and get the Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC AND the 70-200 2.8 VC. I have the 70-200 and it is an awesome lens!

Hey all,

    I came across this flash and was wondering if anyone knew anything about it. The price seems fairly attractive. Thanks in advance!!

Hey all,

    Thanks for the info! I was planning on using it as a fill/hair light. The voltage did concern me, but now i feel a little better! Thanks again!!

Hey all,

    I guess the flash is the wrong type of TTL... A-TTL from film days, not really compatible with digital.  :-(  Oh, well, won't be using that one.

Hey all,

    I was wondering.... I have an old Canon 300EZ flash and the PocketWizard FlexTT5/MiniTT1 triggers. Would it be safe to use the old flash with the PW's? Is there a voltage issue that I should be concerned about? Thanks in advance for any advice and help!!

Lenses / Re: 24-70mm lens. Which one?

Hey all,

    Ever consider the Tamron? It has VC (Vibration Control) and goes for around the $1200 mark. Seen some impressive reviews on it, too!

Hey all,

    No, I saw it. I was replying to you, in particular, about the non-compatibility of the two systems, that is all. Without the need for HSS, Second curtain sync, and ETTL, there are definitely less expensive options through the PW lineup... none of which are compatible with Phottix.

Hey all,

    If you want HSS, ETTL, Second curtain sync... you need to look into the Flex TT5. Maybe the Mini TT1 transmitter, as well, if you want a dedicated trigger, not a transceiver.

Gary W.

Gary,

For a radio ETTL solution the Phottix Odin system is much cheaper has more functions and, especially with Canon flashes, is much more reliable than the Pocket Wizard setup. Radio Poppers also do a pretty good ETTL capable Canon radio trigger system that also seamlessly integrates with their studio lighting trigger systems too.

Hey all,

    The Phottix Odin may very well be a better solution, but, unless I am mistaken, they aren't compatible with the PocketWizards that he already has.

Hey all,

    It isn't their least expensive, but close... Yongnuo yn-560III... get this with their 602 or 603 transmitter added on top of your 622 and it keeps your ability to trigger by radio. All for @ $100! Built in radio trigger in a $75 flash is hard to beat!!

That must be from Vandenberg AFB right?

    Yes Sir, you are correct!!
