Lenses / Re: What is the perfect lens for street photography?

I am happy with my 35L on full format, or the 23mm on the Fuji x100s, with equals the angle of a 35mm.
Seems i am the 35mm- man.

Lighting / YN E3 RT Firmware 1.10 available

Check out on their homepagefor details like download and how to install.

Enables the "Legacy mode", so you can trigger flashes NOT sitting on a Canon- body.


Lighting / Re: Benefits of a 600RT system ...
« on: March 25, 2014, 06:12:37 AM »
My personal benefit is using the 600s with the YN E3 RT with my Fuji X100s.
Leaf shutter with manual flash- sync at 1/1000 of a second- love it.
And I dont need to walk to the flashes, I dial in the new power on the YN E3 RT.

Ah, life is good, sometimes.....

After buying the 70-200 the 135L had a little rest, thought about selling it, but I didnt.

Still love it.
Descrete, fast, small.
And its the partner of the 35L in my mind.

Lenses / Re: 16-35 II vs what?
« on: March 25, 2014, 06:06:29 AM »
Had a 17-40L over a weekend to test, didnt like the "softness" in the corners plus horrible chromatic abberations.
Bought a 16-35II, had it over a year, never liked it.
Even at f8 too soft even for a A4 print.
Sold it.

Bought the Tokina 16-28: much better!
I had luck, because there should be some bad copies too.

So from my experience- a single one and so not representative for all- Tokina finally did it for me.
Ah yes, much cheaper, but this isnt interesting for me on the long run or IQ- wise.

So many excellent and lovely pictures!!

I understand your point.
But having the original as a backup there was no risk of having no transmitter.
And the extras I like a lot.
The build quality is good, not like the original, but solid.
I do not regret buying it.

@IWLP: looks very good and organized!
Makes me rhink about getting this too......
Damn GAS!

Canon General / Re: My Canon Story

Interesting stories!
I had the AE-1 Program, the A1, 2x T90 (I loved them!!), EOS 50 (hated to invest in a new Bajonett!).


Slow start with a 300D- was ok.
Then 2009 things started with the 5DMkII; I was more addicted to photography then before, but now: I could afford the stuff I wanted to have.

Films I used (I was only doing B+W in my own darkroom):
Ilford FP4, HP5, the XP1 (didnt like it so much, cause I couldnt develop it myself...), the whole T- MAX- bunch, the Fuji Neopan 1600.

Best wishes from Austria!

Nice thread!

Oh, thats bad luck....
Mine is working fine.
I even managed to fire my 600EX RTs with my Fuji X100s.....

Nice little piece!

Not specifically electronic- rather electric: the dozens of my eneloop cells.
Since 2008, not one died till now, reliable; energy for flash, camera, cellphone etc.

Got my X100s.

And I managed to fire my 600EX RTs at 1/1000s.
Triggered by the Yongnuo E3 RT, manual power set.
(it only worked with the firmware 1.09, which I found at the P.O.T.N. - forum; not at their homepage....)


Thinking loud: short focal range, f stopped down you will see a bit of the cage too.
Maybe you replace the side where the action takes place with some kind of plexiglass.
Its more reliable the some thin wires, if it is better optically- I hope so.
Nice idea anyway!

Canon General / Re: In need of a "walk around" camera
« on: March 07, 2014, 11:55:05 AM »
I have and highly recommend the Sony RX100.
Small weight and size, relatively large sensor. I carry this little camera almost everywhere.

What I want to buy, next step larger and heavier- but still smaller then a 1 or 5D is the
Fuji X100s.
