If you're going down that route dilbert, at least use the 1d3 as an example

You don't get it do you? Unless your relation has broken the laws of physics his 4"x4" panel is not going to "soften the light" any more than any other 4"x4" piece of diffusion material.
Go learn about light before you get in a fight with people that know what they are talking about. There is nothing your relation can do with his £120 kit that I couldn't do with a 69c piece of foam paper, the bottom of a milk carton, and a book of Rosco swatches ($2.95). For under $5 I get a quart of milk and better performing flash modifier than your relations.
I'm not in a 'fight' with you. Don't get too excited mate, this is a discussion. One in which my corner is backed by a knowledgeable source and who i'd trust over any forum lurker.

He's only a distant relation but I know the inventor has 30 years experience as well.
, I mean the 35 is not even considered anywhere in the future for me.
That's why I went for the Canon 35mm f2 IS, the AF is always spot on, IQ is great and I never have to worry about missing focus.
Sorry to hear that Eldar, I wish you could borrow my 50 and see for yourself, but fully understand you have up, I mean the 35 is not even considered anywhere in the future for me.
Viggo: do you have any problems with Sigma 50 and 1dx? I've read about focus inconsistency when using 50 Art and 1dx and 5dIII.
Hi I live in Victoria Australia and purchased a Canon 1DX but all is not well, the camera shuts down telling me to recharge the battery but the battery that came with the camera is fully charged, I went back to the supplier of the camera and he sold me another battery to see if the problem is the one that came with the camera from canon, I charged the new battery and installed it in my new !DX, but the problem exists I believe in the camera being faulty, I have been using Fuji cameras for the past few years without any issues and traded my Fuji as a deposit payment for my new canon, I took the camera back to the place of purchase here in Melbourne and they said it must be returned to canon for repairs, so I looked across the web for more of the same problems as I have got with mine, to my surprise I came across a professional in new south wales that took canon to court over his new 1DX and lost the court case. is this what's happen when you get a lemon, also when formatting a new SanDisk sd card it now does not work even in my PC . what would you do.
the link below is from the NSW court case that canon refused to fix.
Canon warranty dispute leads to claims of fraud
I am obviously missing the point totally as we are talking about Canon's top of the range body, the topic is " any thing shot with a 1DX " and you say that image making is not what it's all about. My original observation was that someone passed comment on another 1DX 's owners approach to photography and yet the shots they posted were , well let's just say, not good and that's being generous.
But Dave is really missing the point, this is not, predominantly, an image centric forum, it is a gear centric forum where most people come to see and talk gear and are photography geeks who enjoy the equipment as much as the image making, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that as far as I am concerned. If you want more stunning images than you can believe go to 500px, or Flickr.
I hope they bring back the f/1.0 - just sharper!
+1...without focus shift. Sharp from wide open to f2.8
Sharp ... you mean like how the Sigma 50/1.4 Art is sharp? Or sharp as in how the 50/1.2L is sharp?
Sharper than 85L II @ f1.2 and no AF issues like ART
And with amazing bokeh like the 50/1.0L, not like the Sigma 50/1.4 Art.
Viggo: Phottix makes several softboxes that you can place your lights inside. They are ok. I've not had any issue with them yet. The only thing I don't like about those boxes is that you are limited in tilting movement.
Thanks! My Swedish friend also uses them, but can't get them in Norway, and I wonder, are the rods inside the umbrella boxes any better than the "eBay stuff" ?
I'm aware of the limited tilt action, and it's a large drawback, but it's either that or not taking it with me due to needing heavy sand bags. I just take the chance with the inside mount boxes, lol.
Any one have a link to where I can buy this bracket?
I have two of these and they work brilliantly. No wobble at the mount even with a 120 octabox http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/151181673856?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649
This seller has decent softboxes. The essentialphoto/pixapro ones are well made (for the price) and don't feel super cheap. Yes they aren't profoto but then what do you really expect for £50? http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/tsl-2009?_trksid=p2047675.l2559
