I have a 6D. Looking for product suggestions for a wireless shutter trigger & wireless flash trigger combo.

Flashes will be on manual. Don't need to worry about grouping flashes

Goal: not be tied down to camera body while talking to model

Don't really want any app-based trigger solution. Thx

Software & Accessories / Rastering of image in CC PS
« on: July 26, 2014, 04:40:13 PM »
I'm probably using the wrong term, rasterizing, but I'm trying to understand what is happening to my image

Using CC Photoshop, I select the sky, apply field blur, click ok, and bring it back into PS. The sky that has been blurred is wavy, like gradients.

Any tips would be appreciated

Thanks

« on: July 17, 2014, 12:15:31 PM »
Is anyone using large softboxes, over 40 inches, for their speedlights - which brand/model are you using. I'm looking for one above 40 inches, and have a limited budget

Third Party Manufacturers / What am I doing wrong?
« on: January 13, 2014, 01:25:30 PM »
When I switched to the Manfrotto 057 Magnesium Ball Head with Q5 Quick Release, I expected the droops to go away.

On top of it I use a 6D with 70-200, and sometimes with the 2x.

I was set up this weekend for some countryside landscapes, and had to keep framing higher than the image I wanted because of the continual drooping.

Any thoughts?

Working on a personal project.

Need a Go-Pro-like DSLR chest strap/harness for POVERTY images; don't want a Go-Pro.

6D body

Google searches either turn up video rigs or DIY articles. Prefer something already built

Thx

Lenses / Wildlife Lens feedback - experience with 500mm f4?
« on: October 31, 2013, 09:53:05 PM »
I have a 60D, 70-200 2.8 and a 2x converter. On the 60D this works out to 610mm.

Going up to visit some of the wildlife preserves near Sacramento, focusing on Colusa and Willows.

I'm thinking of renting a 500mm f4 for the weekend. I'd appreciate any hands-on with the 500mm

Technical Support / Sharpest f stop for a lens?
« on: September 14, 2013, 09:31:16 PM »
So, I'm watching Rod Goodman's video on B&H about headshots.

He said the reason he shoots at 5.6 is that a lens is sharpest two stops from wide open, he shoots with the 70-200 2.8

Is this a myth or true? I have never heard of such a thing before

EOS Bodies - For Stills / External Live View Monitor for Canon 60D
« on: March 31, 2013, 04:58:12 PM »
What is your experience using an external live view monitor for Canon 60D? or, another Canon body

I just want a bigger view. I'm planning on some macro photography later in the Spring, and would prefer an external monitor for live view.

Can I use a laptop that has an hdmi input and see the image on the screen?

Anyway to do this with an ipad 3?

any specific monitor-only brands to review?

Don't need remote control or capture

Thx

I'm looking for a compact street shooter with crazy fast auto focus and would like to hear your real-world suggestions.

In my kit today, I have a G11, D60 and a Mamiya 7

With a crazy fast focus on a compact body, there are some of the other filters that will guide me:

-excellent IQ (for the size)
- articulated screen
- sharp lens/sharp lens availability
-SD card
-ability to use an intervalomiter
-Macro
-Short minimum focus on wide/normal
-fixed lens ok
-shirt pocketable
-RAW

Thinking maybe the Sony Rx100, (RX1 if I win in Vegas) don't know enough about the Canon Mirror
