Lighting / Re: Benefits of a 600RT system ...
« on: February 14, 2014, 08:16:20 AM »
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.

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.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Epson R2000, R3000 or 3880 Printer

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.

Speaking for "now": if I would have the money, yes.
For the future: nobody knows.
And I am sure, interesting things will come I need. ::)

Just ordered one.
I want to have the group - function on my beloved 1D4.
The AF- lines I saw on a webpage, looks strange, very different from the 550, 580 or 600.
I am very curious!

The question was so embarassing, no one can remember.....  ;D
