I've been anxious to see what the L bracket would look like. So in case anyone else was too.

Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Canon 600EX/RT + Softbox question
« on: April 02, 2012, 10:38:38 AM »
I just received the 2 600EX's I ordered. Should be getting the new transmitter delivered today :).  I purchased 2 speedlight brackets that allow me to attach Bowen mount accessories to the speedlights and then mount them on a lightstand.  I'm just not sure what size softboxes I should get.  I want Octo style boxes. But how large do you think is acceptable?  The brackets I picked up are very well made and should hold larger boxes.

I want the larger boxes for full body portraits. Will also be using for head to shoulder portraits as well, both inside and outdoors.

Is there enough power in the 600EX's to use a softbox larger than 48" or is that size to large?
I've also seen both  a 32"+ 36" Octobox, which are  possibilities.

I dont want to have to sit on top of my subject to see the light.

Some might question why I purchased the 600's instead of full size studio strobes. Well, I love the portability I'm going to have with no power cords needed.  Plus I like the fact I'll be able to use the 600EX on my RRS flash bracket attached to my 5D3 and walk around and my wife can use the other on her camera when not doing portraits.

EOS Bodies / Really Right Stuff L-Plate 5D3

Not liking the look of the Really Right Stuff L-Plate for the 5D3. The large gap on the cable connection side doesnt look very good to me.  Anyone agree?   I'm sure its necessary but I still dont like the look.

EOS Bodies / Humidity

Just looking at the 5D Mark III specs and read that the

"Working Humidity Range
85% or less"

Is this a normal range for DSLR's?

I live in South Florida and during the summer the humidity can exceded 85%.  Might there be problems?
