A "softbox" made from "robust ABS plastic"? Wouldn't that be a hard box?Still small though! Unless you like harsh light.
Exactly. The 'softbox' is barely larger than the bare flash head, and the bounce door is about the same size as the flash head. Since light softness is proportional to the apparent size of the light source (relative to the subject), I can't see this being more than minimally effective as a diffuser or bouncer. The only thing that looks like interesting and useful functionality is the gel cassette, which means no cutting/velcro are required.
I think it's main advantage is the lead-off line: "A next generation flash modifier worthy of being seen on any camera..." In this case, function doesn't follow form.
" Since light softness is proportional to the apparent size of the light source (relative to the subject), I can't see this being more than minimally effective as a diffuser or bouncer. " = + 100 FOR ME TOO.
On my 5DIII this just works. What body are you using?I have a 5DIII also. Sorry for my poorly worded initial post as well as going offline for 8 hours after posting (post-and-run...).
I think that eventually people understood what I was getting at. I know that I can shoot in M mode with a fixed shutter, fixed f/stop, and auto-ISO. However, EC isn't an option in that setting. I double-checked the user manual and it says that "exposure compensation can be set in the P/Tv/Av shooting modes". All that I'm hoping for in upcoming cameras is to add M* to the supported modes for exposure compensation, where M* = M with auto-ISO enabled.
I guess that the thinking is that if you are in M, then the two dials would most often be used to adjust the shutter speed and the f/stop, so you run out of dials to adjust EC.
2014 is the Yeah of the Lens!*
*disclaimer: may actually be next yearI'm assuming this has zero bearing on the (rumored) upcoming 100-400mm ii... I'd feel more confident if there reports of the current 100-400mm being discontinued like the 7D.If anything, it basically confirms the 100-400. It won't be a new 200/300/400mm prime. It wont be an update to the 55-250, 18-135, etc (all just recently done with STM). So, what does that really leave?
I guess they could update the 15-85 or 17-55, but I'd doubt that. And they just re-did all their wide and mid-range zooms, so it cant be those. Basically only leaves the 28-135 and the 100-400. And since there really isnt any room for a 28-135 update...
Maybe she caught him taking pics of other women, presumably hotter looking ones.
She must be some kinda monster with club feet, looks like she stomped on the screen a few times for good measure!
To be honest I've had nightmares about my GF bashing up my gear after a fight. Scares the crap outta me as much as knives and scissors!
