You can use something like this on your belt (I am not intending to advertise this particular piece or shop, just I bought this a few months back and found the link easily)......

Ok, I do not have those flashes of yours so I myself cannot give any solution to your problem. But see if this document has anything useful for you

I Just got my new Canon 600ex-rt. I have a Canon 7d, a flash 430ex II, and a pair of yongnuo yn-662c wireless flash trigger transceiver.

Basically what I want to do is put one of my transeiver on my camera, to fire my 630ex and I want my 430ex II to fire as a slave.

I'm able to do it, when my flash is on my camera, but I can't do it when my 630ex-rt is mount to my yn-622c.

Is there a non-compatibility with those two? What should I do ?

Sorry for my bad english, I speak french.

Olivier  :)

Let me see if I understood correctly, are you putting the 430 on the second YN622c and still it is not working?

Just to satiate my curiosity, sometimes I have seen reference to some "the temple guy" in certain other topics in the forum here. Is this "the temple guy" and the erstwhile use ankorwatt one and the same?

So, those of you who have used both systems do you guys feel that Nikon cameras are designed and built keeping a smaller hand size as the target compared to comparable Canon cameras? I used the Nikon cameras of two of my friends (one D80 and the other was probably D90 or D7000) and found the hand grip feeling smaller/thinner than my 40D and 50D....... any opinion?

Or the new sigma 18-35 f/1.8 DC for crop sensors.

Yes, that is the lens that made me ask the question. I have not handled the 16-35L. but the Sigma felt nice, that is why I was dreaming for an EF-S 17-55 of that type.

Short of changing the front element altogether I think you have to live with it.

Lenses / Internal Zooming Standard Zoom
« on: August 30, 2013, 06:19:14 PM »
Just wondering if any of you know whether an internal zooming standard zoom is possible (either EF or EF-S, but I guess if one is possible, the other would be too)? It might be nice to have 17-55 EF-S (or 15-85 EF-S, or 24-70 or 24-105) which does not extend. Opinions?

...I do think the Tamron handles the transition from focus to defocus more smoothly than the Canon.

I was never pleased with the (latest) Canon's rendition of transition areas; went from busy to garish to, "what's that other stuff in there?"
I'm thinking of getting this Tamron in F mount to replace or complement my Nikon 70-200/4vr.  Also a very sharp lens but suffers from similar transitional area bokeh ugliness.  (but it's so small and light..)

Wow, I never thought I will hear this about 70-200 mk II (I hope you guys are referring to that lens) which some here (and elsewhere) consider to be the best canon zoom lens made till date (it surely may be so)! Now day by day my itch of buying the Tamron 70-200 grows exponentially. (now the rose petals will suffer) I should buy it now, I should wait till next year, I should buy it now, I should wait.........

Personally, I went with the 35L, 85L II, and 135L (the classic 'holy trinity' of fast primes).

I beg your pardon OP but could I add a question to everyone here (in reference to Mr. Neuro's statement, may be he will also jump to share his understanding/opinion here).

Why does not this "holy trinity" include the 50L? Alright, 85 is 50mm more than 35 and 135 is 50mm more than 85. So they are equally spaced. That may be one logic (not a very strong one though). But is there any other reason to exclude 50L? We could have an "unholy foursome" (ok that did not come out right)....

I am using 5d iii with this lenses. I want to take more close pictures with this lense, but I don't know how to. too much close makes the picture blurry. check these photos, these are the closest I could take. If anybody could help me ....

First of all I do not think 1/30 sec is fast enough for a 100mm macro (more if you have stopped down) neither for handshake nor for subject movement.

Second how much far away were you from your subject. As far as I understand the MFD of this lens is around 30cm. Thus anything closer the subject will be unfocused.

For good and sharp macro you need the steadiest camera and a fast shutter speed with good light.

Why does not Canon get into the production of Smartphones with Cameras..... it is quite obvious that their lower end P&S market is under siege..... By entering that market Canon can create a whole new story....

Hey mrsfotografie, good to know. I was wondering given my understanding of how AF work (the distance of image plane from mirror equal to distance of af sensor from mirror and the split/half covered pixel thingy.) in DSLRs how it would work with binoculars. Thanks for the link. It is always good to something new.
