thanks for the advise, but it will be mostly for outdoor fill. will the 100m canon macro lens on the 5dmk2 get too much in the way for macro? or is the flash high enough?

Depends on how close the subject is, at 1:1 maybe. The 580/600 heads can also tilt downward a few degrees.  But regardless, you'll probably want to get the flash closer to the subject for softer light.  I'd recommend an off-camera shoe cord, and handhold the flash (if the camera is on a tripod) or use a flash bracket like the Manfrotto 233B (I've shot macro with the 430+OC-E3+Manfrotto 233B).
+1000.

Today I tried to get a photograph of a spider from about 35 cm. The 600-RT on top of the camera did not work out for the shot. So if you get a flash, get something that does not need you to mount the flash on top of the camera...

My 2c...

Darya a photo session in prague natural light shot with the 24-70 f2.8 L
Darya in prague by Lseriesglass, on Flickr

NICE! But then I am a fall guy for B&W... Not as much Sepia though...

What is the meaning of "Darya"? In India it means sea (or ocean)...

Shouldn't you be looking for a macro flash in that case? Or a ring flash?

There are time I wonder if I should get a 7D for birding... I'll procrastinate a bit more - hopefully I will get a good deal...

Lovely! Fantastic timing and I love the framing and the angle.

Lenses / Re: Concert haze causing out of focus pictures

Statuary Notice:
Do not take this response at face value.

So I guess that since no one has replied to this that I'm the only one to ever experience this issue?

Well, back "in the day"....I experienced a LOT of haze at the show, and it was a bit hard to focus on most anything terribly well
The reason is Pot.

LOL...I used to take lots of pics back in HS and College at parties (thank God before the internet and FB and the like, I made sure to secure all the negatives back then)...and I noticed that many of the pics got blurred and fuzzy as the night progressed.
Pot again...

I then would just tell everyone, NO...it was my problem taking the pics, it just REALLY looked that way at that particular time of the night at that party.

There you go - Pot again...

There is something about cats. Big or small. And I was a Dog only person for most of my life - till we inherited Bambi...

Loch Katrine - Scotland 2010

That is beautiful! What a treat!

It was, luckily the 1st day of a 5 day stay around the Lochs (but so cold on the front of the steamship on the loch).....as we had snows in April that year, didn't even think I was going to get to travel to the hotel never mind drive round the place.

Only a little saturation needed on the photo to bring out the colours of the treeline
The treeline! I was taken in by the blue... Just lovely!

TrumpetPower!,

Most excellent pictures, I'd like to see more.  Thanks for share.

I too got both the eclipse and the
Transit of Venus, they were very very
crappy pictures taken with a crappy Canon
SX20, so I won't post the embarrassing pics...,
but it was so cool to try.

Here is a CRAPPY shot of the moon a few nights ago...
I know it's blurry, it very hard to focus the telescope
with the camera attached and I was running out of time,
when I get my equipment back from the factory repair
center, I'll have more time and my own equipment, this
one was taken on a borrowed mount and tripod, so I
had to make it quick.   :o



Here is Jupiter and the 4 Galilean moons.  Again, VERY CRAPPY, but it was a real fast shot.


Peace! 8)

Wow! What did you shoot Jupiter and its moons with? On iPad so can't see the Exif :(
