Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Anyone use Wasabi Power Batteries?
« on: April 19, 2013, 04:28:15 PM »
I'm thinking of picking some up for my 5D Mark II/III. Seems too good to be true:

Anyone use these? Are they worth or should I stick to the Canon brand?

Lighting / Do 600EX-RT not work with Cybersyncs?
« on: February 10, 2013, 04:09:04 PM »
I plugged one in to my new 600EX-RT flash but can't seem to trigger it. Is there a certain mode I have to be work? It works fine on my old 580EXII.

Lenses / How much to sell my used 24-70mm L for?
« on: September 16, 2012, 08:19:36 AM »
So I'm saving up for the II and was wondering how much I could get away selling my 24-70mm L I for since they're discontinued. It shows some wear but still works pretty good.

It was interesting to say the least. Shot with both cameras set to the same settings with the 85mm f/1.2 and 24-70mm. The photos of the Mark III straight out of the camera were so much better than the II in terms of IQ, exposure, and color rendition. When some people say there's not much difference in IQ I have to say they're full of it. The handling of the Mark III just felt so much better and more substantial except for the new joystick on the new grip. It just felt awkward. It will take some time to get used to.

Having been a strobist speedlight/alien bees light user I want to upgrade my game and learn how to use Profo lights. I plan on renting and trying them before dropping the cash to invest in the system. A friend of mine recommended I rent an Acute 1200 pack and some heads. Is the Profoto system easy to use without prioer knowledge? I know pocket wizards are built into them but can you any other triggers (i.e. Cybersyncs) via sync port to trigger them? Do all the heads work with every pack or certain ones? Anything else I should I know?

These guys have done a pretty good comparison:

Lenses / Where to get lens calibrated?

I'm not technical to do it myself so I was wondering where can I get my lenses calibrated for a reasonable price? I live in NYC.

Lenses / Lens info rubbing off. Any way to get it replaced?
« on: March 26, 2012, 06:50:02 AM »
So I've had my Canon L lenses for a while and some of them have the lens info rubbing off. Is there anyway to get it replaced to look like new again?

EOS Bodies / Do 5D Mark III raw files work with Lightroom 4 yet?
« on: March 21, 2012, 06:55:03 PM »
Are 5D Mark III raw files working in Lightroom 4 yet?

Anyone know if Canon will be making a receiver dongle whatever so that you can remotely trigger 580EX II and older flashes with the 600 EX?

Just for S___s and giggles. What do you guys think? So far Amazon the 5D Mark III is number one on the digital SLR best sellers list. The D800 isn't even on the top 50. Is this any indication?
