I really appreciate this discussion.  I've been pondering the 500mm for bif but maybe I'll continue to use my 400mm.  Any others with experience with the 500mm with birds in flight?

Wow, I use lightroom 4 all the time but I got a few lessons from these examples.  This is a great learning tool.

Keep those airshow shots coming!

This last weekend, August 25, 2012, we went on the SS Lane Victory cruise to Catalina in California.  Attacked by German planes and defended by US planes (all were AT-6 Texans).  Great fun, used my 100 - 400mm, f4.5 for the shots.  Shot most of them at 1/1600th but could have dropped the shutter a bit to catch more of the blur but was pleased anyway.  Always learning. 





Great fun and highly recommended.

You could always get them right from the source - Yongnuo's own eBay store - I have bought from them at least ten times with no issues.

@Bosman, make sure you have some cold-shoe adapters like a Frio as I just learned that the YN-622C's do not have a 1/4" female thread underneath to screw into a light stand so you will need some cold-shoes to secure them  to an umbrella swivel spigot.


Oh, thanks Jamesy, that's who I bought from.  And good info on the cold-shoes too.  Thanks.  I look forward to trying them out.

I have used Yongnuo triggers for years and for the price they are pretty darn good. They don't have the build quality of many others but the price makes up for that - I just buy extras ;)

I am waiting to see what the YN-622C's are like as they have pass-thru so you can mount a flash on the camera for on-axis fill as well as control a remote strobe or two.

I just saw this youtube video and it looks good.  They haven't done the on-camera use yet but will report on it soon.  I want to do wireless, on-camera, off-camera, and so far this looks the best.

Looks great thanks for posting. Too bad he didnt bother throwing a 580 ex on there and test it.

They are selling these on ebay for $100 USD (free shipping).  I ordered one and we'll see.

This is all very timely.  Next weekend I'm going on a day cruise on a restored Liberty ship which will be subject to mock air attacks.  I'm taking my 200-400mm and going to have a great day out there in San Pedro, California.

Hugo, really beautiful work my friend! I can see you like what you do as your images are fun! :D

Ditto on that.  Really fun shots.  Nicely composed and thought out.  All of these in this tread provide some wonderful ideas.

I recently purchased these lens for video work but will also certainly try them for stills as well.

Does anyone have any experience with them in either capacity?  The adapters (two sets) are in the mail and I haven't been able to try them yet.
