Thanks for sharing Mr Surapon.
HI. I have a particular work flow that requires me to adjust the power output on my 600EX-RT while being remote from the camera. I use a Camranger to trigger the camera, then evaluate the exposure on my iPhone and adjust the flash output as needed.
I have been using PW FlexTT5s for this but have some issues with them.
I have tried a ST-E3-RT, but using such a trigger will not let me change my flash power at the flash. I want to be able to have the flash in Manual and adjust as needed without having to go back to the camera, and the ST-E3-RT seem to lock me out of my flash. I can change the FEC at the flash when I am in ETTL, but I really need manual control.
So, I am considering Odins. Can someone who owns Odins and canon flashes to a test for me?
While using the trigger, can you change the mode on the flash from ETTL to Manual and adjust the output?
Surapon, thank you for taking the time to show us your rigs. The macro setup is an eye-opener.
I just recently got back into photography and started using off camera flash again (2 speedlights, Canon 580 ex II). I'm looking for some decent light modifiers and stands for indoor and outdoor use. Nothing crazy expensive. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thank you!
The RRS is really nice, but given the price, I was somewhat underwhelmed by its performance. It's a work of art and I love the rounded knobs that don't snag on things, but it's not particularly smooth. I also haven't had much luck fine-tuning the resistance. I can get close, but it's not as good as I had expected. Don't get me wrong, it's a fine product, and one that serves me well, but I certainly see room for improvement.
I've only had a TINY bit of precision issues with 10x Live View for macro. Otherwise, my BH-55 is a dream, usually making me forget I'm even using a tripod.
I've used the 70-200mm 2.8IS II with a 1.4x extender, smooth as can be. Everything else too, down to a 16-35mm or fisheye.
I even use it horizontally on a Manfrotto 055X. Effortless.
mac, did you ever call RRS to talk about your dissatisfaction?
And if you wanted to use a ground level tripod with a Great White, what's the go-to head?
I'm trying to decide whether to buy the Kirk BH-1 or RRS BH-55 Ballhead.
Anyone have any suggestions for me or experience with these?
I'm in the UK and can buy the Kirk easily here but would have to buy the RRS head from the US and pay for import charges and wait longer for delivery. I've worked out that the cost will be pretty much the same for either option.
Another bit of info is that my camera and lens plates are Kirk plates, but as I understand these will work with RRS.
Unfortunately, the English word is spelled "negative"
And there is one important photographic rule missing
Always ridicule photographers who choose to shoot camera models other than the one you choose to shoot with.
I appreciate your honesty but that isn't the spirit of the question.
Think of it like this, if somebody was to give you one of the three options which one would you find most appealing for your own photography?
Thanks for sharing Mr Surapon.
