Mr. Surapon,

Sometimes I think you should quit your day job and become a full-time inventor.  You might become a billionaire.  ;D
Thank you, Sir, Dear friend Mr. Orangutan.
Ha, Ha, Ha, I love my day job as American Architect, and Photography as Hobby already.
Thanks again.
Surapon.

Wedding Photography / Re: Tough LARGE group photo
« on: December 19, 2014, 11:35:40 AM »
One of the hardest shots I've been asked to take to date:
I had a bride this summer request to do a photo of ALL THE GUESTS during cocktail hour. I told her we'd try. I didn't make any promises. The wedding was at the Art Institute of Chicago and there is a huge atrium where cocktail hour is held. I knew I would need all the light I could get to even have a chance at getting a shot they'd be happy with. So I shot wide open with my 17-40mm at F/4.0 - then I bumped my ISO to 3200 - on the Canon 6D. I knew I could get good shots at that ISO on that camera. Then I put three Speedlites on full power in manual mode and aimed them straight up, next to me, so they could bounce off the ceiling. I use Godox VING 860C ; about equal to Canon 600EX. Keep in mind; it was pretty much DARK in the atrium at this hour. I should have taken a before/after; next time.

Here is the shot that resulted.


Wow, Wow, Wow, Dear friend Mr. jepabst.
Great / Very difficult Photo, but you did a great job.
Last year, I do this kind of group photo for the Buddhist monks at the Temple too,side Light of the Sun, Because the owners want the front of the building as the background I use 3 flashes and 3 Umbrellas for Fill light and not let the dark Faces of subjects.
Set my 5D MK II ( With EF 24-70 F/ 2.8 L ) at F= 5.0, SS = 1/80 sec, ISO = 200.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: ENELOOP ????
« on: December 19, 2014, 09:31:28 AM »
Hello Surapon,

I use both the Eneloop and Imedion batteries for over 3 years on my flashes, and find both very good.
I charge them with an intelligent charger which has the functions to 'Break-in' new batteries (by charging and discharging a few times first); and to reconditioning old batteries.  Mine is the Powerex brand, but I believe there are a number of these on the market.

Regards,


Aye, I purchased a battery charger and conditioner/reconditioner. Whenever I get a new pack of Imedions, I always run them through the pretest cycle to drain/charge a few times and prime them for maximum capacity, and minimize memory issues.

Dear Friend , Mr. jrista .
I never have  "a battery charger and conditioner/reconditioner. " before for AA Battery, But I Have This "a battery charger and conditioner/reconditioner. " for my Love/ Old Canon 1DS and Love this Conditioner& Reconditioner.
Sir, What Brand name of this " a battery charger and conditioner/reconditioner. " that you recommend---And Can I order from Amazon ?
Thank you, Sir.

I'll have to see if I can find mine. My brother has a tendency to reorganize...so these days I'm always losing things. I got mine off of Amazon. It was the first one I ever purchased, so I didn't go for one of the fully featured ones that can recharge multiple battery types...I think this one just does AA and AAA, but it's simple to operate, works well, and maintains the quality of my batteries. These Imedions (which I think may actually be 2400mAh) just seem to go forever, and I don't use my flash much...so, I only haul out the recharger once every few months when one of them finally drains. :P


Anyway, if your a big rechargable battery user, I know that you can get C-cell and maybe even D-cell now as rechargables. I believe Imedion has C-cell sizes now. There are a couple real nice feature-rich chargers out there that support AAA, AA, C, D, and sometimes even odd sizes like the CRs, all in a single unit. Some can charge only four batteries, some can charge up to eight or twelve. Anyway, I'll see if I can find some links.


Thanks you, Sir, Dear Friend Mr. jrista
I find one in Amazon = $ 40 Us Dollars

Technical Support / Re: What photo printer do you use?
« on: December 19, 2014, 09:16:49 AM »
Hi guys,
I just wonder what kind photo printer you guys use at home. I don’t print very often, however, I’m thinking to buy one that could print up to 12x15 - to make photo book.

The boss at home wants me to make family photo books. I wonder, should I just use Adorama service and be done with? I kinda like the idea of having a decent printer at home so I can print when I want it. At least, I can see the colors immediately. I think you guys all know my PP skill by now... ;D

Thanks
Dylan

Dear sir,

Very good idea, but this flash total weight?

Dear friend, Mr. tat3406 .
Total weight of the LED light band = Less than  0.8 Pound, Not heavy at all.
Enjoy.
