Can someone please explain the advantage of no low pass filter? Thanks!

That is exactly what I said before. Canon's ad agency rewrote the think different campaignAny idea what this may be about?
This was on a two-page spread ad in the New York Times today in the front section.
The website has 45 hours left on a countdown timer...
This reminds me of a poor imitation of Apple's 1997 "Think different" campaign, when Steve Jobs returned.
“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Hi I shoot outside a lot, and since my Einstein Flashes can't sync over 1/320, I usually take my Canon 600EX Flash with me.BL beat me to it, but as he says, what you're looking for is a plain old ND filter to "overpower the sun". A polarizer can be used, but can do quirky and unflattering things to skintones and generally don't cut enough light. Depending on the ambient light, you'll need a ND 0.9 or stronger filter to keep the shutter below 1/320s although you should really be shooting at 1/250s which is the 1D X's sync speed. You'll need the Einsteins with the ND filter on unless you have multiple 600EXs.
Unfortunately, even with the built in diffuser, the shadows are harsh. And with a Gary Fong Diffuser, which softens the shadows a lot, the flash loses output so it has to be set at a stronger level, therefore taking longer to recycle.
Another reason I like the on board flash is the High-speed sync, so I can shoot at F2.8 and not worry about shutter speed.
I want to know if there is a filter that will help me keep sync speeds under 1/320 and still shoot at F2.8 on bright sun light.
Basically, sunglasses for my Canon 24-70 II
Thanx for your help.
Also, generally speaking, the best way to shoot outdoors with a speedlite is to put your subject in full shadow (either open shade or with the sun behind them causing a solid shadow on their face) and then use a un-diffused flash in Av mode with high-speed sync so the camera will meter it as a fill flash. That or use reflectors to fill in the shadows like I did with this shot with nothing more than a 4' rectangular reflector. The sun provided a hair light, the reflector served as the main/accent light, and the open shade was the fill. A set of lights would have produced better results, but sometimes simpler is better.
You want a Neutral Density filter to cut down the light transmission so you can drop your shutter speeds to match your X-Sync.Hi, thanx for your reply. That's what I need.
When I use a 3stop ND, I can typically shoot at f/2 @ 1/250 outdoors on a sunny day so I don't have to use high speed sync.
A variable ND works great, but can get pricey.
I had 2 Lexar 1000X Professional CF cards literally die on me. One time after taking 500 irreplaceable
vacation photos and the second time after 2 hours of a paid shoot which I had to restart completely.
I went back to Sandisk Extreme Pro 1066X which hasn't failed me in 13 years.
Save yourself a headache and don't buy Lexar.
It's not an Anecdote. It's a fact. 2 cards from different batches failed. Also your beloved transcend also failed me.
You buy cheap, you get cheap.
And exactly how do you test a CF card thoroughly? There is no way.
The testing should be done at the factory. It's called quality control. I use the card normally and I perform 3 formats before working and you never know when the card is going to fail. There is no warning.
None of the software I have was able to see the cards so there was no way to recover any data.
At one time I was using 2 simultaneous cards just in case but it slows the çamera down so finally sandisk came out with a 1066x and now I have no problem.
