i dont use PWs.... but i do use phottix odins.... i found out that even when the speedlight or the ODIN transmitter/controller unit is set to manual you cant use a light meter to meter the light output.... tried this on my sekonic 478 and reading on light output were too low such that when you input those in your camera... images will be overexposed...... the workaround i found was to to trigger the flash via sync cord instead of via hotshoe on the receiver units.....

I'm not really clear on what the OP's question really is though..... I know sekonic has models that can trigger PWs..... so maybe OP was saying something that he can't accurately measure the light even when in manual when using ETTL PWs..... if  that's the case Patrick maybe you could try the "my solution" as i posted above.... to clarify though i use phottix odin though i believe they work in same ways as PWs tt5/tt1.....

good luck

and if you're looking for a recommendation on what brand.... B&W is tops...


I'm in photo printing business using Noritsu  Mini labs. THese are RA4 process printers.

YES, both the 5DmkIII and d800 are capable of giving you quality prints at 4x2 feet sizes. I have made prints as big as 2x8 feet coming from "lesser" cameras and they still came out great. If you're worried about pixelated pictures I would suggest you shoot RAW and have your RAW converter resize the output the jpeg to your desired print size as close as possible to you desired print size. if the resized output allowed by the raw converter is too far from the desired you can also have the raw converter bump up the resolution that way you have as much detail when enlarging.

hope this helps...

@wshinji...... yes, the difference in the way LR and DPP "process" the raw files is evident upon opening the file..... unbelievable huh????.....

here is a sample of raw MKIII picture converted with DPP.

First image is the whole picture next  would be a crop of the of the first image.

Sharpnessin DPP was at 2 and exposure was bumped up .50

Is there a best way to convert the RAW file with the latest DDP to a different non destructive format and then use LR4 to complete the workflow? keeping the sharpness...

maybe there is way or similar...?

you have to use the latest 3.11.26 version of DPP.

You can use DPP to initially convert the RAW images to 16bit TIFF files then use LR to finish up. Ive tried this and it manages to "keep the sharpness".

@ viggo... glad that you did give DPP a try. And by the looks of it you now seem somewhat happy with the results.

Actually I too was not very happy with the mkIII because of it's "softness" I learned that there was a problem with DPP so I turned to LR 4.1RC. I found LR to be a great raw converter with all the parameters you are able to adjust to get that perfect picture. But I was somewhat underwhelmed by the outcome of the pictures i took with the mkiii when processed with LR. I was thinking " is this it????" ...... But then I waited patiently for DPP to be "corrected" and sure enough when it came out, tried it and I instantly saw a world of difference in the conversion process... I guess you saw it too.....

maybe darknightnine could also give DPP a try and hopefully it will also somewhat "solve" his soft mkiii problem

@ viggo  your DPP has to be 3.11.26 version and this does not come with the camera. it has to be downloaded. if you are using the DPP that came with the camera then images will come out soft. I do hope you give it a try and see the difference between using LR and DPP with MKIII

been reading your posts, and noticed that all of you seem to be using LR as your raw converter. Why not give DPP a try???? I have LR myself but images from the mkIII just seem to come out better if converted to jpeg via DPP than with LR.... I don't exactly know why but it just seems that way

my 2 cents....
