Technical Support / No, Not Stupid question, But Question, Sir/ Madame
« on: January 21, 2015, 03:31:04 PM »
Dear Teachers and Friends.
Another question that I do not know and Want to know to compare and Make decision to buy light equipment  in the near Future.
Yes,  The question about Lighting, Sir/ Madame.
Why All Flashes are specify such as = Canon 580 EX  = 58m./ 190' @ ISO 100 ( for the Flash Power, Canon 430 EX II=43M./ 141 ' @ ISO=100, Yes I am Understand that 430EXII is less power than 580EX.
BIG BUT,  The Studio Light/ Flashes Such as Phottix Indra 500TTL power = 500 Watts Studio Strobe or 400 Full Power Flash---Yes, I complete understand of 500 Watts Power of Light.
BUT I do not know how to compare to Camera Flash 58m./ 190' @ ISO = 100----Yes? How many of 580 EX  to be equal 500 Wats Power of Phottix Indra 500TTL ?

Well, Yes, I have so many Flashes in my hand, and Do not want to spend $ 1,200 US Dollars for Phottix Indra 500TTL, If I do not need to buy 10 of  580 EX II.
Thank you, Sir/ Madame.
Have a great Wednesday.

Dear Teachers and Friends.
Another stupid question from me again which I never see in any post in CR. ( Or I miss this one).
After I see the Post "EF 11-24 f/4L USM Coming Shortly" and Almost $ 3,000 US Dollars, The More I Think about my Dumb Quistion.
Long time ago, I use to do the video/ film  record movie  as hobby, Start from 8mm., super 8 Sound, VHS, MINI-DV, and hard drive system.
Yes, When I want longer range / tele. picture, I just put my add on tele.(1.5 X ) Lens on top of my Video camera lens. And If I want to shoot more wide angle, I just pop my Wide angle ( 0.65X) Lens on the top of camera Lens= Similar to filter.
Yes, Now , Some of Canon Lenses for DSLR , we can use 1.4X and 2X to get the Longer Range picture with out spend money arms and Legs.  BUT FOR ADD ON LENS(AT THE BACK OF THE NORMAL LENS) for Super Wide angle effect= Why no one do this add-on wide angle lens ?
NO, I do not want to spend $ 3,000 US Dollars for EF 11-24 just F=4.0, Because I already have Tamron 11-18 mm.F/4.5-5.6 , Canon EF 17-40 MM L. Plus TS-E 24 MM L MK II and  Rokinon 14 mm, F/2.8.
Yes, Sir/ Madame, That is my Stupid question.
Thousand thanks to answer.
Have a great work Week.

Dear Friends.
Yes, I have so many flashes include : Canon 550 EX,  580 EX, 580 EXII, 430 EX II, 2 Sunpak flashes , that I can use with my dear Phottix Odin TTL Flash controler 2.4 GH. up to 100 Meters or 333 Feet.
Yes, I have 2 more Youngnuo YN565 EXII FLASHES, THAT GREAT ON CAMERA FLASHES, BUT CAN NOT USE WITH  PHOTTIX ODIN.
Yes, Sunpak flash are good, BUT not enough Light Power for my need. That why, I  order from Amazon , Phottix Mitros+ ( + = Build in "Phottix Odin" control inside= Both Transmitter and Receiver, of the great flash).
Yes, High cost forthis PHOTTIX MITROS+ , MADE IN CHINA = $ 400 US Dollars from Amazon, But It worth the cost in my Idea, Because I already have Phottix Odin = 1 Transmitter( $ 199), and 4 Receivers ( $ 145 Each)---For This Great Flash Phottix Mitros+, I do not need to by another  Phottix Odin Receiver = $ 145 Us Dollars.
YES, All my friend that have PHOTTIX ODIN, You must up grade Firmware up to 2015, to use with Canon 1Dx and Canon 7D MK II for Super High Speed flash sync.
After I get this awesome Phottix Mitros +3 days ago, and test drive, The Most item that I love which All Canon Flash do not have = Attached Thick Diffuser, which create the most smooth light with  minimum shadow behind the subject---Yes, I can use this "Attached Thick Diffuser" to all my Canon Flashes too, Just add the Velcro strip od the head of Flashes. The Second Item that I love, This PHOTTIX MITROS+  Not only have Build in Phottix Odin, but Also have Optical Sensor that can fire the flash .
Yes, Sir/ Madame, I will continue using this Flash and Report back to you.
Have a great Sunday.

« on: January 06, 2015, 01:29:02 PM »
Dear Friends.
Yes, Dear Friends,  So many of my dear great teachers, teach me that= Surapon, The difference between the PRO and the Typical Photographers are = What type of Tripods that they use. The Normal Photographers use the light weight/ Cheapo Tripods that Flimsy that can not help to get the sharp picture when use slow shutter speed against vibration or motion blur.----BUT, THE PRO will spend the most money to buy the heavy duty/ Big Tripods and Great Ball Head( Plus They use Remote control to press the shutter button with out vibration and Plus Mirror Up ), to support their big camera and Big Lens= against Vibration Blur= will get the best and sharpest Photos that get 100% of their Lens quality.
Yes, After 8-10 years, I change from Cheapo Tripods to High end/ High cost Tripods and High Cost Ball head= Yes, My sharpness of my Photos are increase up to 100%----THOUSAND THANKS TO ALL OF MY DEAR TEACHERS.
Enjoy.
