That Sony DR won't do me any good since I like to take photos in the dark. Superior selection of lenses (that I can afford) and great ergonomics are more reasons I recommend Canon. I think they have a superior system.
Thanks for that link. It looks like pretty much any of the current Canon will work. The Mitros isn't listed though. The article was probably done before the Mitros was introduced. Phottix's official web site says that all of the Mitros flashes are compatible. The Mitros will also require a receiver. Took some digging as their website isn't very user friendly. Interestingly, most of the Yongnuo's don't work. I'm looking forward to getting some off camera practice next Spring/Summer.
Yeah. Looks like an Odin with 2 receivers and one Mitros will run me about $700. I already have the 430exII. It's a good starting point for me and is a bit pricey, but I really want the control options. The Canon system is great, I'm sure, but $1000 is definitely above what I'm willing to pay for now. It's still a while off, as I want to try and get a new 15 Macbook Retina. Gotta work more of that overtime
Cool. Thanks for the input. I'm still planning on the Odin system. The 600RTs are too expensive, so I'll probably get the Mitros or some 580ex used and they seem to be 'medium' priced. I don't have any experience with Yongnuo. Maybe if I get more than 2 speedlites and am low on cash I'll get some. I'm trying to get into Manual more anyway. Thanks again everyone.
I'm planning to expand my speedlite system next year. I like where the Phottix system is headed. I'm thinking about getting the Odin and a couple of Mitros flashes. Does anyone know if the Mitros has the receivers built in or will I have to get the new Mitros +? Any comments/reviews are appreciated. From what I've seen so far, it's a great system.
I have the 70-200 f/4 NON IS. It is great in most circumstances. In low light, it requires higher ISO settings than I would like. I am planning on getting the 135 f2 in Nov. The 2.8 version is just too expensive for me. $1000 is pushing it. I'm starting to enjoy prime shooting along with the savings.
You should definitely rent/borrow a 6D. I saw a significant improvement in image quality at higher ISO from the 7D. I don't even think about using NR until I get to 3200 (shooting RAW of course). Throw a nice prime on it. I'm dying to try the 135 f2 next month.
I'm glad they released this. It increases competition and might get Canon to release some new models they've probably been sitting on. Of course, I have no intention of every buying a Sony, but I like that they are good, which forces Canon to be good. I'm sure when Canon finally releases their large MP camera, I won't be able to afford it anyway, so it doesn't really concern me, unless it trickles down to the lower end models. Good for Sony.
Get the 5d3 now. You will get to enjoy it and it will probably sell nicely when the 5d4 comes out. It is definitely the camera I would have chosen if I were into video (and had 3 months of overtime). I sold my first DSLR (7D) after about 9 months for $500 less than I paid new. Not too bad considering what a rental costs.
