5D2 or wait until the 6D is sub 1700$. It's too expensive for what it is.

BTW, as an extra, i shots some crude tests with my UN-beloved 5D2 last night.
MIDTONE BANDING at iso 100 - it still has it! Real-world photos are where I first found the problem, specific test shots certainly replicate it. I need to do a few more tests just to make sure this is not a glitch of my display calibration curve but I'm pretty sure it isn't as I can accentuate the pattern with a simple unsharp function in PS.
Should i start a new topic with that when I get a chance?
You keep saying this but are always unable to post a photo illustrating it, whenever you are asked for one, or the percentage of your images you loose to it, you leave the thread.
Can we see some of these real world images that you consider unusable?
This thread just shows how much of us could really use a "True" ISO 50 in DSLR's. I'd like one canon and perhaps they will be the first with the new 1Dxs.
The problem is that there's no free lunch. A "true" ISO 50 would mean a lower base ISO, meaning that to achieve higher ISOs, even more amplification would be needed - meaning more high ISO noise. Usually, if ISO 100 is not low enough, one stop more is insufficient, at least in terms of shutter speed. The waterfall example posted earlier at ISO 50 and 5 s exposure required f/18 to get there - personally, I'd have preferred to shoot that at f/9 and ISO 100 with a 3-stop ND.
A Sniff test should be sufficient. :|Not allowed! Jared Polin (Fro knows foto) has a patent on that move
So at 1/1 power on the einstein, I'd have a 1/1000th flash duration. So I cannot got any faster on my shutter speed than 1/1000th as the flash doesn't last long enough. Am I correct on this?
If so, I'd just add some Odins to my order.
I am not sure if the odins do this on einsteins
I've only tested it on elinchrom strobes can you post a pic of what you are trying to do? to get an idea of just how much flash power you are chasing?
I also just ordered a stratto II reciever to see if it works becasue with the 3.5mm splitter the 1 reciever could theoretically fire 2 elinchrom strobes at 1/3rd of the cost of a single odin reciever
I took a look at the quadras and I love the modifiers elichrome has. The overall package won't deliver what I need it to do for me.
Durations are too slow even with the port a+b method.
It would be out of my budget for 4 heads, two packs and the modifiers I wanted.
400 w/s is not enough.
It would be super heavy compared to Einsteins + VML
you can get this set and a couple of 600s
then get some phottix odins they will work right up to 1/8000s with the odins which will well and truely overpower the sun and more
Indeed, film is different, it's as if you were comparing a 18 mpix APS-C sensor with a 50 mpix fullframe sensor..
My test is of that which is relevant to me: close to 20 mpix on both
Also, my test is of that which is relevant to me, which means it's basically useles for birding fans
