Lenses / Re: 70-200 f/2.8 with T3i or 70-200 f/4 with 7d II

Hey all,

    If you are looking at the ƒ4 IS version, might I suggest, for the SAME cost, the Tamron 70-200 VC model (A009). It is about the same for both lenses and I saw $100 rebate on the Tamron! That lens, coupled with the 7D MarkII, would make an excellent combination!

Hey all,

    To update the FW on the Mago, plug the usb cable into the flash, THEN AT THE SAME TIME hold the "SET" button while you plug the usb cable into the computer. That will bring up the folder containing the FW in the flash. Make sure the new FW is named firmware.bin and then delete the in flash FW then drag and drop the new FW into that same folder. The FW is a zip file so make sure you unzip it first. Hope everything goes well for you!

Hey all,

    If I could change ONE thing, I would make the body have the integrated grip like the 1D series. Nothing else.

Hey all,

    Here is a photo SOOC, Canon 7D with Tamron 70-200 Di VC USD lens with 2 Pixel Mago flashes firing in ETTL mode, @25% crop, no editing other than crop.

Hey all,

    As for the Pixel flash and ETTL, I use two of the flashes on a monopod to shoot HS football, with the flashes in ETTL mode. The ONLY time I have exposure issues is if I try to shoot faster than recycle time allows... and that has decreased significantly since I started using the TD-381 battery packs. ETTL works very well!

Hey all,

Hey all,

    You should look at the Pixel Mago speedlight. It is a great flash AND it's only $88!! Every option of any Canon flash EXCEPT the built in radio feature of the 600EX-RT.

Hey all,

    I recently picked up 3 Pixel Mago ETTL speed lights that do what you are asking, even the video light! (It's a 2 watt LED light on the front.) I just did a firmware upgrade which opened up S1 and S2 capabilities, as well as having the ETTL, Manual and Multi (strobe) modes. All for $88!! Yes, they do work with Canon's optical system, I have tried it on my 7D and it worked as advertised.

Hey all,

    Make sure the 430EX II is in ETTL mode and NOT in slave mode. Fresh Batteries. That's all I can think of off the top of my head...   ???
