EOS Bodies / Re: Is 5DIII softer than 5DII?
« on: March 31, 2012, 12:48:37 AM »
yes the 5D3 is softer at iso100 than the 5D2 however the margin is so small for real purposes its negligible and only noticeable when pixel peeping at 200% with side by side comparison shots.

I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

I'm definitely keeping my 5Dmk2s though as they still make kick ass images and I might grab a brightscreen for one and keep it for use with my MF only lenses

Yea, what's up with that?? Most of his Canon reviews are either no strap or Nikon strap.

More than the Nikon strap? :)
i believe its ironic humour

Lighting / Re: If you have a 5DIII and the Phottix Odins....
« on: March 30, 2012, 04:32:07 AM »
each odin reciever comes with 2 sync cables a pc sync to 3.5mm jack cable and a 3.5mm male to male cable
i just pluged the 3.5mm male to male cable into the odin reciever and the elinchrom and set the other reciever on the 580 it fires with ettl however the elinchrom is only ever going to be manual

ah ok I dunno i am guessing the odin delay the firing of the flash till the back end of the exposure so maybe it just has a count before it actually signals the flash to fire
but i'm gonna give it a go tonight anyway :)

I imagine it has something to do with timing the actual flash firing. Which makes me think that what I'm asking will not work since an optical triggering implies a certain delay. But I'll appreciate if you can confirm this. :)
just tested it, its fantastic
i set up an odin on a speedlight and an elinchrom strobe set to optical slave, turned off HSS on the odin and set it to 1/8000 sec made sure the speedlight was on first curtain in manual and it fired the studio strobe just fine
so sounds like what you want will work :D

OMG its even better than I expected.

Elinchrom d-lite4 IT with odins will fire at 1/8000 sec and sync even full power!
not only that but 580ex2 will fire at 1/8000 sec with HSS turned off at full power
using the odin thats massive being able to fire 580's at full power at high shutter speeds increases the
usage by orders of magnitudes.

even better than that can mix both together firing and syncing at anything up to 1/8000 sec
(as fast as the camera will go) very nice
i've only used the odins in on the 580s in ettl until now
the elinchroms i was driving with the skyports

so with the odins you can mix studio strobes and speedlights and sync at up to 1/8000 sec

I love these things

I am sorry, I now realize I wasn't clear at all with my question. I was referring to Viggo's post regarding studio strobes and not Canon's HSS  :-[. Calling it "high speed sync" was my mistake. He was talking about syncing at all shutter speeds with Phottix Odin and I was curious about how this works and wether it's possible to trigger only one strobe with it and let the others be optically triggered by that one.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D2 vs 5D3 ISO100 around 50 test raws
« on: March 30, 2012, 02:34:09 AM »
Overall I feel the images are sharper however I think the 5Dmk2 still beats the 5Dmk3.
That makes sense... not.  Care to elaborate?

ummm there are over 50 RAW files from both the 5Dmk2 and 5Dmk3 the reason i posted this was so that people can make up their own mind about which is sharper. My personal take is that the 5D2 is sharper

with all the new in camera jpg processing such as lens correction, HDR etc, I cant seem to find the option to paste in an oversized moon into the shot. anyone know which menu option this is in?

Got a question. For studio work, if I want to set up a high speed sync system, is it possible to do so with only one receiver and setting the other heads for optical triggering? Will this work or will I need a receiver for each head to get the high speed sync?

no because HSS changes the way in which the flash fires
normal flash punches out a single burst of light in about 1/20000th of a second at either the begining or end of the frame based on if you are using first or second curtain sync

with HSS it lowers the strobe power and pulses it for the duration of the open shutter very fast so that the strobe is emitting light for the whole exposure. this is why when using HSS you may need to use techniques such as ganglighting to provide enough oomph
