Took this photo with a 7D, Sigma 17-50 OS at Fort LaCloche, Sagamok First Nation, really nice spot for scenery and wildlife. First time I imagined how much better it will look as a black and white. Really inspirational work here, keep doing what you are all doing!
cracking shot, love the bleak wind torn landscape.

Here's a contribution from me:

Lighting / Re: ST E3 RT/300EX RT working with Sony A7

I was very dissapointed that I could not use my st-e3 With my Mamiya RZ67 pro II, as I hoped to be using my Canon lights With that camera. I found a workaround, thus having to shoot in manual by using inexpensive PW X Plus. The additional bonus for me by using PW triggers was that by buying a small chip for my Sekonic meter, I could now lightmeter my lights in my studio without having to use my prescious film :) I have not tried any of the Youngno Products, but I am seriously considering buying a couple of Youngno 600ex rts to compliment my canon flashes, as I have seen several reviews that states that it is unproblematic to use these together.

Great Picture, and a bit sad I think... :)

Really like your Gozo Azure Window, Leichenmuehle. Iconic place.

Currently we´re in the middle of winter here, with lots of snow and ice. So a quick trip to the dessert in Sharjah is quite a contrast for a Norwegian.

I liked this line, with wave patterns on one side and totally smooth on the other.

Very Nice Picture! Great composition and tonality.

EOS-M / Re: First Images of the Canon EOS M3

This camera is probably going to be ok. At the risk of sounding superficial (which I probably am :) )... Is it me, or is this camera really ugly? I have been hoping for several years that Canon would release a mirrorless camera the likes of Nikon Df? Lately I have been on an analoge trip (I saved up money for the 7DII, and in the last minute used my money to buy a Mamiya RZ67 pro II +++), and going around shooting film with my beautiful Canon A-1 is great. I would love to have its digital brother or sister :)

Pricewatch Deals / Re: B&H Photo Nows Carries Yongnuo Products
« on: January 09, 2015, 08:04:57 PM »
I have a Canon 600EX-RT and a Canon ST-E3-RT Transmitter. Recently I purchased two Yongnuo YN600EX-TRs to go with my Canon gear. So far the Yongnuos have worked flawlessly. They seem quite well made and virtually indistinguishable from the Canon flash. They sync with the Canon transmitter with no difficulties.

Although I feel "uneasy" about supporting a clone product, the cost savings made it unresistible.

Great tp hear! I have five Canon 600ex rt and a st-e3, and I have to say that Youngno clones are very tempting to add to my other flashes. I can get three of them for the price of one of Canon :)

Hello Speedlite Junkie´s  ;D

Now my amateur Setup ist complete with 3 600EX-RTs.

2 Worked fine most of the Time, 3. is better for some additional Light´s .

Will mark my Group like Ramon .

ST-E3 is great to have, giving you a lot of opportunities. Unfortunately (as has been my experience trying to use my speedlites on my analoge cameras) it will not work with other systems. Hence I needed to buy Pocket Wisards to trigger them on my analogue medium format camera, and then you of course loose ettl.
Are you sure you don't need an ST-E3-RT to command these three, or maybe a higher power bare bulb flash in those instances where you need to overpower the sun (not trying to mean- this is the exact state I am in... :(  )

Happy to hear :)

I did a photo-shoot this Christmas of a family of eleven. I did ok, but I am now wondering if I should add one or two :) Waiting for reliable reviews on the Youngno clone 600ex rt, as they are way cheaper :)

Try to book a table at the River Cafe on the Brooklyn side. They have a little place you can set up a tripod outside, so you can get the long exposure of the water and the NYC skyline. I took mine in April this year.

Great shot!  Did you enhance Freedom Tower or is it a different color by itself?

Thank you :) No enhancements, only a little sharpening

To JRamirez. They might serve cheese burgers, but not sure, as it is a high end restaurant. Otherwise, if you are in this vicinity, you will find other spots that will give you approx the same angle :) Good luck

Lenses / Re: buying advice: get a 135mm f2, or use existing 70-200mm f2.8?
« on: December 26, 2014, 05:16:27 PM »
Two different beasts :) I love them both. For me it was the 135L or the 100L HIS. I love my 135, and it is my most used lens.

As it was, my camera christmas presents to myself was entirely non-canon :) I do love my Canon gear, and feel I pretty much have what I need. It was time to get the small but helping Mamiya gear, such as a new diopter for the waist level finder, a grip, and a cable release :) That is where my heart is in these days, but as far as making money from shooting, the canon gear will be used in two days :)

Custom function C.fn-01 "Auto power off" set it to 1: Off (Disabled)

It's all in the manual. Try at page 92 to start.


Again, thanks. It worked like a charm :)
