Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / 600EX-RT - no radio contact available
« on: February 07, 2015, 09:19:13 AM »
Dear guys and girls,
I have a 600EX-RT for some time and just added anotherone to the gear. Now I discover that I can not find ETTL with radio (Ican find optical link, annnd I can use radion for linked shots). Is it me, or is it the machine???
Any andvice greatly apprechiated.


Guy and girls - I am in trouble
While departing from NYC this Monday to go the airport and back home to Germany, my camera bag "disappeared" someweher betwen the supposedly secure holding space at the Ink48 and my arrival at Newark airport. I spare you the details (stupidity on my behalf cannot be fully excluded), but would like to know where you would search for "resurfacing" gear.
Would B&H purchase "off the street"? Craiglist? Any other suggestions? Will come back with serial numbers.
We are talking 5D3, 24-70 2,8 II, 135/2,0, 600 Speedlie (yes - this one hurts seriously)
Thanks for any help I can get

Software & Accessories / Camranger vs cameramator
« on: June 17, 2013, 02:45:04 AM »
Has anyone tested one or both of these wireless "range extenders"?
If so, which to buy?

Hey guys,
Is it possible to export a selection of pictures filtered by e.g. the rating as raw file copy to another location on the drive?
Thanks for any good idea

Lenses / Review of my bag - help me to reduce weight and overlap
« on: March 08, 2013, 08:22:56 AM »
Dear all,
suffering a boust of GAS I would apprechiate couple of thoughts on my bag.

I shot mainly kids fashion on a semi-professional level and like travel photgraphy (if I tarvel without family). Skilled amateur, taking pics for about three decades now. Weight is an issue on business trips, and very good low light performance is key.

What I have:
5Dc and 5D3
EF 50 1,4
EF 24-105 IS 4
EF 100 2
EF 135 2
EF 70-200 4 IS
EX 580

Thoughts on my mind:
RX-600 - worthwhile? I could use some additional flash at times for the fashion pics, but the ETTL I sucks
exchange the 5Dc for a modern APS-C body (e.g. 7D) for additional reach?
exchange the 100 2  and 24-105 for the 100 2,8 IS plus 24-70 2,8 II
40 2,8 as small "walk-around-less" (would I still use my 50 1,4?)

Too many options, I guess...

Lenses / Recommendations for fast & sharp 24 ff prime?
« on: March 05, 2013, 03:49:50 AM »
Dear all,
I look for a fast 24 prime on 5D3. Not sure, if manual focus will be ok with standard screen. I have 24-105, which is a bit buly for my taste. Have a legacy Sigma 24/2.8 originally for Nikon with an EOS adapter. Tested it seems not "sharp enough", especially at infinity. Not sure if this is lens or adaptor. I recall from the old days that the little Sigma was considered better than original Nikon.
Any ideas, budget up to 600€.

Hi everyone,
is there any option to change the focussing screen in the 5D3 for better manual focus with legacy glass? If not, any other option to support quick and as accurate as possible focus using the viewfinder?
Thanks for your help!

Software & Accessories / Need help - setting up a 5D on a windows7 PC
« on: September 09, 2012, 07:36:30 AM »
Hi all,
changed to 5D3 recently, passed down my 5D to my son in law. Windows7 notebook does not autodetect the camera, initial software kit no longer available (got lost in one of many transitions).
How would I get the PC and camera talk to each other?

Thanks for any ideas.

Software & Accessories / Sharing images to a closed group of people
« on: September 06, 2012, 11:30:09 AM »
Hi there,

I have a couple of pics to share with company customers (I dont take pictures for a living).
The solution should be easy, free of charge (if possible) and secure.
I am living in Germany (should that influence your recommendations)

Thanks for any help!
