Hi Jock.
Very nice shot, but shouldn't it be in the shot from behind gallery?  ;D
It does appear to be posed for you.
Nicely caught.

Cheers Graham.

Anyone know what happened to that gallery, I cant seem to find it?
I have a shot that would fit there perfectly.
Cheers Brian

I think these two photographs are my best landscape shot to date.  Thanks for viewing.

Software & Accessories / Re: Remote release/intervalometer question
« on: November 12, 2013, 01:40:06 PM »
I am looking for a remote release for my 5DIII.  I'm trying to decide between the Vello Shutterboss and the Hahnel Giga T Pro II.  I'd use it more as remote release than as an intervalometer, but I like having that capability as well.  Is either significantly better than the other?  I notice that the receiver is often mounted on the hotshoe, but I'm assuming it doesn't have to be when a flash is being used... TIA for your insight!
Hmmm I have the Hahnel.
1. Keeps triggering the Camera even though the sender is switched off. This is a right royal pain if you are doing bracketed sequences for HDR or focus staking sequences.  Tried all channels, still happens.
2. IMHO it doesn't support the Mirror lockup very well, but the 5D3 may itself be to blame here. So its always one press for mirror, then one for shutter. Not good to doing a fast sequence of shots. Is that a problem?
3. Shutter release will not start a video recording on the 5D3. I even think this is now documented by Hahnel.
4. Sender switches itself off after a period of inactivity. You  have the Camera set up on a tripod, waiting for that cute little bird to come into frame, you press the shutter release, nothing happens as its now switched itself off. I learnt to continually keep pressing the "Lighting" button on the remote to keep it awake.

Yes, I have used it dangling in the air when the flash shoe is in use, clumsy, but works.

Having said that I still use it, and I cannot compare it to any others. YMMV.

Cheers Brian

Common Waxbill - Honolulu Sept 8
60D and my old Tammron 70-300 - (small easy to pack).
A flock of these birds surrounded me as my wife spent 5 HOURS shopping at the swap meet around the Aloha stadium, thank god I brought my camera. I did some urban birding and saved my sanity.
Only 5 hours, sorry to hear that your wife is ill.  ;D
