Lighting / Re: 600EX-RT + 580EX II Questions
« on: August 31, 2013, 11:29:01 AM »
To the opening question: optical OR radio.

And yes: they are much more reliable than the PocketWizards, less fuzzing around with extra gear (although I love my gear...).
To use an 600 or the ST3 on top of the camera: depends on the situation.

Or take a smaller body than the 5d and shoot raw.
Or leave the grip at home.
I absolutely dont want to miss the possibility of pp.
Neither Canon or my beloved RX100.

I use my CPLs quite often.
Didnt like to buy a 82mm for the 24-70, was nice to use my 77mm for the old and the 70-200.
Always in my bag.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Storage and life of batteries
« on: August 29, 2013, 05:05:25 AM »
I try to keep mine between 40 and 80% charge.
This is said to be the comfort zone for LiIon- cells.
And if I expect a journey or a longer session I charge them full.

A red bar means the battery is loosing capacity. I have one, still working with appr. 20% less actuations possible.
A user recently wrote, a cell with red bar heated up when charging.
Didn't notice that, but with LiIon I would always be cautious. Means, I am in the house when I charge them.

Lenses / Re: Can 24-70/2.8 II replace 35/1.4?
« on: August 22, 2013, 04:57:13 AM »
The 24-70II I use often, the 35L I love.
Different kind of use and style.
I will keep mine.

Nice and scary story.
And to answer the question: no.

Lighting / Re: Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT - I'm impressed!
« on: August 20, 2013, 12:50:12 PM »
@ impressed:
YES!!!
After using the PW TT1 and 5, keep the protocol switching them on (f51c= flash, pw on flash, pw on cam, cam); then the first blown out picture, unreliable (better after 2 years or more tolerant....)
The Canon RT: switch on, wait 2 seconds- HERE WE ARE!!!
Yes, not cheap. But it made me sick to miss shots.

Lenses / Re: Canon 135mm F/2
« on: August 19, 2013, 01:56:16 PM »
Both nice lenses.
135L would be my choice (I have both..... ;)

237
Interesting.
I have a 32GB Sandisk, the 60MB/s- version. Does not slow down.
The Lexar 32 GB 1000x does slow down after, dont know exactly, the first third of the download.
Both with a Lexar USB 3.0 cardreader.
I'm curious too for some answers/theories.

238
Not on your list, but isnt a crop either:
what about a used 1Dmk4?
I like my 5d3, BUT: I favorise my 1d more and more in the last months.
Just an idea.
Good luck and have fun!
