Recently I have to save a bit of money for different reasons.
But: in may I will have this camera.
And will enjoy the benefits of a leaf shutter with my 600rt's with the Yongnuo E3 RT as a fantastic system- in and outdoor.

I watch mainly the events, but its always nice to see the photographers with theier equipment.
Although, I dont identify too much, a 70-200/2,8 I know, but not which one of the three, or something bigger like a 300/400/500/600, and again, sometimes hard to say which one.
And the bodies are much too small for me, even with my HD- TV set.

With a little patience you could buy a system of Yongnuo- clones.
The YN E3 RT works very good: AF light, group mode for my  "ancient" 1D Mk4, an USB- interface for further upgrades.
So chances are good the YN 600 RT will be a fine and affordable flash.

Benefit of the 600RT with a little help from china:
Soon I will buy me the Fuji X100s; so with its leaf shutter AND the possibility to fire the 600units with the Yongnuo E3 RT I am pleased with this system.
600RTs: I like them a lot. And the help from China makes them univwrsal tools.

The Mk2 is more consequent in its features.
I didnt like the optical viewfinder because it was too small. A halfway solution, and made it bulky.
No increasing number of pixels, another good point.
How does it look?
Absolutely dont care.
I own a Sony RX100; I like its small size and superb IQ.
The 1GX offers more, so it is bigger.

@ flash: hm. When I use all this extra gear it makes no difference if I carry my 1 or 5D.

Price: $ 600 in a few months will be the fair price for it.

Thanks for reading!

$299? Yikes! Got mine for 150 just 2 weeks ago.
Works lile a charm.
And yes: they have their own store at ebay.

Take a look for "hkyongnuo"- got mine from them.
My unit works well, and I am glad to have it to remote control my 600RTs sitting on other then Canon- bodies.
I will buy the Fuji X100s this year- lets see.

@ BL: exactly my thoughts.

My YN E3 RT just arrived.
Boy, am I curious!

Sony RX100, first version.
The price dropped since there is a marginal better, 50% heavier version 2.

Just thinking loud: (I already noticed this behaviour.)
What about control the flashes by a second camera?

Take a look at David Hobby Strobist blog.
There you find a lightning 101, the basics you need to flash and form light.
Very helpful and informative.

I would take the 3880.
(I have the 3800 for five years now, I am very satisfied with it)
Efficiency and the ability to print A2 are the main reasons.

@ cayenne: sorry for the late answer.
No, I looked for it on a ebay, germany.


Anyway- its coming from Hongkong.

Canon General / Re: Why Scott Kelby Switched to Canon
« on: January 21, 2014, 02:34:20 AM »
Among all the books I have about photography are two of Scott Kelby.
They are quite amusing and helpful.
Never knew he is/was using Nikon.
So he is switching.
If the quality of his books dont suffer I dont care.
