Lighting / Re: POLL: What flash modes do you use?
« on: October 06, 2014, 09:43:56 PM »
I use M mode exclusively on my 600 EX-RT and I also shoot in M mode.  I've memorized settings that work under various lighting conditions and at various distances and I'm really pleased with the results that I get.  I really like the flexibility and control that comes with shooting in M mode.

EOS Bodies / Re: Are you planning to purchase a 7D2
« on: August 27, 2014, 03:07:37 PM »
I switched from APS-C to full frame a couple of years ago and have never looked back.  I do a lot of closeup photography and for that kind of work low noise is an absolute must.  I'm skeptical that even a vastly improved 7D will give me the kind of image quality that I get with my 5Diiis.

Lenses / Re: Going native at 400mm

I have the 400DO.  Forget about the negative reviews, this is a truly fine lens.  It's relatively light and razor sharp and I've produced hundreds of good images with it.  I recommend it without hesitation.
