Bokehlicious yummy yummy

Dont think so. The 6D even got 1/180 probably to give another reason to get a higher priced body. I guess they will leave the faster syncs to the 1D series, cuz thats what professionals use with their flash firing going wild :P

It will more likely be 6D sensor reduced in size.

200/2 is a killer lens! Its one of the sharpest lenses ever also and that already at 2.0 aperture!

My eos 1100d cant transfer signals to the flash if its not attached to the hoe shoe. No built in wireless or such.
Im hesitant to buy YN560 instead of YN468 II cuz ive never use a flash and im afraid manual mode will be too much trial and error for me. I wanna use it for candid portraits or street. if i had a studio id probably fiddle around with it.

So basically my camera must fire a flash first to trigger the YN flash, correct? Otherwise i would need a transmitter.

Well maybe u can recommend a cheap transmitter? Probably easier than having to rearrange my popupflash direction. Cuz i think if i use the "popup flash triggers external yongnuo flash" there will be 2 flash lights in the photo, isnt it? Unless i somehow redirect it...


i just read yn 468 II doesnt support e-ttl in wireless mode. does that mean i gotta put my settings manually if i use it as an off-the-camera flash in optical slave mode? hmmm

*edit again 10000th time*

What about Yongnuo RF-602 + YN468 II (or another flash if u can assure me manually operating is a piece o cake)

Its the "off camera" flash setup im looking for, no?


 "Family Jewels FUQ690" flash. First i didnt get its just some tape they made themselves put on a Nikon flash. I actually searched on google for this brand lol

Yep, cost is the main factor preventing me from going FF! :-\

Same here but id rather save 6 years or such than getting another APS-C. FF ill probably use it another 6 years or more anyway since its like "goal reached" :)

Lighting / Buying Yongnuo Flash
« on: January 23, 2013, 10:46:47 AM »

i decided to get a flash finally. Id prefer to get a wide aperture lens for low light shooting but thats just too pricy for me and i think a flash is handy anyway not only for low light situations.
Im gonna get the Yongnuo 468 II E-TTL version. Its kinda cheap and i think it will suit my style.
Question i have:

Ive seen many times ppl using really cheap cameras with an external flash. Even the Toy Story (tm) camera was used like that in a digitalrev video. How does it work? Just let the camera fire with flash and that will trigger the external flash? I got 1100D so there is a popup flash.
Ive seen in the video they redirect the (popup) flash so its like only the external flash lighting the scene up.

Does that work with the yongnuo im gonna get? Are there any special "flash redirection" tools? Or other option would be to get a flash transmitter right? Works with 468II ?

Im still wondering if there isnt some kind of "delay" between the first and 2nd (external) flash? Probably it gotta do with electronics working in microseconds but the shutter is just milliseconds?! I just dont understand really why its possible to use like _any_ camera (even cheap ass toystory camera) with an external flash :O

I don't think most of the people that replied really cared to read the original post. He's NOT looking to upgrade to full frame.

Sorry my bad, but why would somebody not want to go FF? Anyway, If not FF then get 7D, best aps-c at the moment.

This one is small but different than the canon one you can use like "any" focal length.

Better a noisy photo than no photo. Seriously go develop some of your digital prints and you will see the noise that looks so offensive on the screen isnt an issue on the photo print really.

If i was you i would save more cash for a FF body. The 7D is not that new anymore and probably gets replaced in 1 or 2 years or even this year. If you buy a modern Ff body then u can even use it for 10 years from now probably. With a bright lens u will probably never go much higher than ISO 6400 and thats really useable today already. Even Isos over 10k produce usable pics (check high iso thread here). I think ISO quality wont improve much anymore, next big thing might be DR but it will also take many years to notice the difference.
Plus the 7D is not really cheap too if u buy it new. Just save more and you will see a HUUUUGE difference over APS-C :)

More DR and less noise sounds nice, thanks for explaining it to me. Would it be a big difference? 1/2 stop sensitivity sounds not much to me. Will i even notice it in my photos ?

. the key word here is (quite correctly) "integrated". If only integration was a reality....  Sorry for offtop.

Well if integration goes so far as they work and have a social life in a community where they happy its fine i think. If they are lazy and live off social welfare thats not good of course, but that applies to ANY person no matter where they from.
I think there are too many white people who expect foreigners to totally convert into "white people". Reminds me of german people living in another a german community area....speaking german...eating german food and so on. Its just the same except it somehow seems like white people always go crazy about foreigners o_O
TBH i dont know much about the UK welfare system i only know there are a lot of foreigners in germany who live off government money and have no will to change it. But there are also a lot who work (and do jobs german ppl rather not want to do often).
But basically its just a big wuss since we have enough cash in our country to support these people. Its just easy to blame minorities i guess. And not to mention the number of white people here who are basically too lazy to work...

The bokeh is fine in the photo isnt it? If he really used 1.2 then it probably looked like it was taken "somewhere".
