You can mix-and-match Einsteins and 600-RTs. Mount your ST-E3-RT on your camera and connect your Cyber Commander to your camera with a PC sync cable.

I realize in writing that out I am being stupid.... it's the strobe that freezes the action not the shutter speed. Still, I've never had a problem at this setting before.

I'll try that. I was shooting a dancer so I set it to 1/250th a second to freeze motion. I've used identical settings dozen times before without a problem. I did, however, buy a third Einstein strobe and this is the first time I've used all three in unison.

I was shooting with flash (Einsteins controlled with the Cyber Commander). I just took a picture of a white wall with the flash off and it seems like it may be a flash sync problem.... How do I resolve this? Once again, thank you for your help and insight.

Today, every picture I took with my 5DIII has a black bar on the bottom of the frame, regardless of the lens I used. The camera has not suffered any recent impact (of which I am aware). Is this indicative of some problem with the electronic shutter? I assume I will have to send this into a Canon repair shop to get this fixed.

Rocket Blower + Lenspen are an awesome combo. I use the blower to remove dust, the brush on the pen to get anything else off and the pens' carbon dust to clean the lens.

Thank you for the detailed explanation! I think I will go the PW route based on the flexibility.

Lighting / mixed brand question

I'm planning on building a home studio. I have to 2x 600EX-RT and one ST-E3-RT. I'd like to get at least one Einstein E640. In terms of controlling the strobes, is it better to stick with a whole Paul C. Buff line-up and buy 2 Einsteins and the Cyber Commander? Would I lose any functionality if I control the rig with a Pocket Wizard instead?

Thank you for the explanation!

A (perhaps) stupid question. What software do you use to edit the raw video output? I'm very interested in installing this and giving it a go on my camera but my video experience is about nil.

Thank you! I really like the third picture, too. The park has an art exhibit by Orly Genger that consists of these coiled ropes that partially enclose certain trees. The red exhibit surrounds a cherry blossom tree making it an incredible place to shoot.

I had a little bit of fun with a crystal ball in Madison Square Park over the weekend.
