My suggestion is 3 600EX-RT and one ST-E3-RT.

Anytime you are using one 600ex and using more than half power the battery cycle time be the limiting
factor. My advice is to gang 2 600ex in that instance to reduce  recycle time. So that's why you need at least 2.

I recommend a third 600ex for those times when you shoot outdoors and use HSS. Gang the 3 together
for power and cycle time.

Am I the only one wondering when does Surapon wear the coonskin cap?

Thanks. I rarely use my AB800 above half power. The only drawback is the the CR2450 battery in the transmitter. I'd prefer a AA. I like the idea of powering the receivers from the same source as the flash.

The Photix Atlas II look interesting as well. About the same price and use AA batteries.

So here's my setup. 5d Mk3, Alien Bees and PW Plus II triggers.

I'm see the black band as discussed here previously when trying to sync at 1/200th. Yes, it goes away at 1/160th.

I'm thinking of selling the pocketwizards and getting the Paul Buff Cybersync Transmitter/Receiver pair. Does anyone know
if these triggers suffer the banding problem?

I have a pair of the cactus triggers which I haven't tried yet. I rarely use them because the batteries always seem to be dead.

Any experience with these is appreciated.
