Something so sensational could only be Clickbait imo.

I only made this account to see what people thought about the review


Linky?

I have yet to see a modifier that can fake being bigger than it is.

I've seen modifiers that are more effective than others, aka how much light comes out, but never seen a small light give softness like a big light from the same distance. Only marketing can rule the laws of physics.


I agree with Viggo on this.

Software & Accessories / Re: Adobe Creative Cloud 2014 - Jumped yet?

I went for "No" rather than "Never will" because I'm a never say never type of person, but I have no intention of switching.

I don't like the idea of renting/subscribing to software, and have never done it so far; I want to pay once and know it's mine to use, end of.

More specifically, for PS subscribing is definitely not a good deal for me. For one thing, I already own CS 6, so I'd be paying those $10 for the additional features from CC onwards only. More to the point, though, I use PS in fits and starts - sometimes every day, sometimes not for weeks or months. So I'd either be paying to rent it for a whole lot of time when I'm not actually using it, or I'd be driving myself nuts trying to decide if it's worth taking out a subscription today or better to wait until I'm sure I'll have time to work through some images (and short-term subscriptions were more expensive per month last time I looked, which was admittedly a while ago).

I can see how the subscription model might work better for professionals and heavy users, but I don't understand why Adobe can't figure out some way to offer both - subscriptions for regular updates (and maybe include some extra support options or something to make it a better package), but release regular updates to buy (which would simply contain the accumulated updates subscribers get instantly) every two years or so, as before. That way, everyone's happy, no?

Well said. I'm +1 with this.

Considering the relative price compared to the 5DIII, I would also recommend the 6D.

Make sure each others expectations are well communicated before you take a single shot.

Listen to Jim.

Good luck!

Awesome, I'm going to keep using my 5D3 anyway because I enjoy the challenge of shooting with low DR!  ;D

Does anybody know if the LC-5 can trigger the camera if you have the remote in your pocket? Or does it require line-of-sight? I'd like to be able to have the camera around my neck with my hand in my pocket (triggering) the shutter.

Consider starting a new thread rather than a 2 year old one.  This might get you more replies.
The answer is, no one knows for sure, radio waves can be attenuated in some materials while they pass thru others just fine, so it depends on the fabric in your pocket, and if you get damp or wet.  I'd expect it to work in your case, since you are so close.

Thanks MtSpokane.
